The WIC bash questions made me think of this.. NOT BASHING .. Did you know?

They are coming out with WIC cards?
They have them here in Vegas
Apparently you have to go to certain lines witb the WIC card sign up .
Its a debit type card.
You get that and you dont have to use those checks.
So you dont have to get everything at once you can spread it out over the month.
Just wanted to let yall know maybe ask your local WIC offices about it.
I thought It was neat to see those :)

  • I know things go a little faster here in the lines
    They just take your card swipe it and then ring everything up then you get a recipt with your balance left.
    I think it is awesome

  • That will be nice for us, we always run out of eggs and cheese before milk lol, so it will be nice not to have to use whole check now!! And if you BF they are going to give you baby food, fresh fruits and veggies and bread.
