If I use food stamps at self check out to buy hot food would it reject me.?
I’m curious because I know you can’t use ebt for hot food but would it actually reject me if using self checkout

Yes. Do you seriously thing that the cashiers memorize what you can and can't buy? The system does it automatically, same whether you are at self-checkout or a human cashier.

Well, since "food stamps" are a debit card, yes. (I'm not sure when they went from being literal "stamps", but I am guessing about 25 years ago.) But only from the cash side.

Try it and see. Self checkouts are programmed to follow the law, like if you buy alcohol, tobacco or certain medicines the machine will call an employee to check your ID. I'm sure the machine will ask for another method of payment for items that aren't eligible for food stamps.
