Then this is probably long past due to hit that part of the country.
While I have never received food stamps in any place I have lived, I know people who do. They used this system in Louisiana when I lived there, in
Illinois, and for here in Arizona.
It makes it a lot quicker for merchants, too. Instead of fumbling through paper food stamps, they swipe the card and the transaction is immediate.
It does cut down on fraud, as far as people outright selling stamps. I do know that people get creative with the cards too though. There are many
people who profit that will use the cards when given the pin number and then pay the food stamp recipient so much on the dollar.
