NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is seeking to woo more low-income shoppers by offering a discounted Prime membership to those on Medicaid.

The online retailer already offers a cheaper monthly membership to people who receive food stamps or other government assistance through Electronic Benefit Transfer cards. The company says expanding the discount to Medicaid recipients will make its Prime membership and its faster free shipping accessible to more people.
