Grocery shopping for foods allowed by your WIC* program can be confusing. Much of the problem is from not knowing exactly what products you can purchase with your WIC benefits. WICShopper is here to help you shop with confidence. Using WICShopper, you can check the WIC eligibility of products while you shop! In all of our supported WIC programs, you can use your phone to scan products to check their WIC eligibility.
In most supported states, you may register your eWIC card, then automatically download your CURRENT and FUTURE benefits every time you shop! WICShopper doesn’t just tell you if the product is WIC eligible… it tells you if you have enough WIC benefits left to purchase the product!
In states that use "smart cards" such as Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana it is not possible to load your prescription because it is stored on your card. In these states, you can use the app to capture and store an image of your benefits to use the next time you shop.
Here is what WIC participants are saying about WICShopper:
"This app ROCKS! I was able to see my balance & the best part was being able to scan barcodes! Saved me a lot of headaches! Love this app, very convenient!"
"Loooooove this app!!! So helpful, simple and useful! I've recommended it to everyone I know with the benefits. Thanks for making it."
"Awesome app. I love being able to see my wic balance with out having to save and scramble for a recent reciept when I need to go to the store. Very convenient!"
"LOVE IT!!!!!! I can never find my receipt so this is very convenient and handy. Even if this app was $1 I would pay for it."
"This is awesome u know how many times ive got up to the register n it not b wic approved or something is wrong. Now i can check b4 thank u"
"U can scan it to make sure it's approved ?!? Awesome!!"
"This is a wonderful app. I love the options it has for recipes, and its so helpful to remember the benefits your recieving for the month. Its also nice that the App. sends you a reminder on the last day to use your benefits."
"Thought this was neat cause u don't know ur wic balance unless u go to the store n get a receipt. It even lets u scan stuff to see if its wic approved"
"Aww me gusto!"
"I live in Iowa and this app has been SUCH a lifesaver! I am using the barcode scanner constantly because there are things covered by WIC that I never knew about and it's so handy! Juggling my 3 girls at the store is hard enough without having to wonder "is this covered?" or "did I use all of that already?" I love that when you scan an item it bot only tells you if its allowed but it tells you exactly how much is allowed! I couldn't be happier. :)"
"I have it and love it takes the guess out of shopping for my daughter."
"This is awesome!! Since we don't have checks anymore I've been forgetting what all I have left lol."

Ratings and Reviews
App Update Issue
I’m glad that WIC has an app now compared to the checks which were used back then. It’s so much more convenient. I do however have an issue with the app itself. First of all, being a mom, there are too many things to keep track of or if you ran out of something and there is another refill coming up on the 1st of the month (and it’s like the 2nd or 3rd) the app/items don’t update quick enough. Therefore, you have to purchase things (such as baby formula which you desperately need) with your own money or someone else’s money. No matter how many times you hit the “update” icon at the top, it’s still stuck on the last items you bought. By the time you see/realize the replenished amount, your on the 3 or 4 day.
Talked about this with my worker
So I was in the wic office and was talking to my worker about knowing what we can and can’t buy and then went in after a month or two and come back to this app which helps others with wic find things in store that some stores neglected to put up so we know why we are shopping for this isn’t a negative review it’s a positive one and wish this was available when I had my younger children but still glad it is around and will continue to use as long as it’s around they should add more for the parents to do things like all things related to wic and parents of all ages to get more like classes online or through app in real time like cooking parenting and nursing as well for new parents breastfeeding and as well as going to school setting up wic appointments learning what some one needs to come new or Recertification and other things I can go on but I already said to much if they come up with all this I want credit lol but I’m a parent and love this app good job wic
I like the app, WIC not so much
I find the app really useful to do our shopping rather than the confusing guides WIC used to have.
My complaints are with WIC: We had Kern County in Kern CANCEL our account when we moved to Nevada, which they were supposed to transfer. I hope someone loses their job over that.
Next, many items I would expect WIC to cover are not or there are size limits which, in many grocery stores, make the process of buying food either impossible (out of stock or not stocked) or extremely difficult. WIC doesn’t cover teething snacks such as rice husks or gerber’s lil’ crunchies, which I’m currently having to buy on SNAP or out of pocket. Kinda defeats the purpose of the program, doesn’t it?
Next I have serious issue with my daughter’s benefits not automatically adjusting for her age, which we had to provide proof of when we registered. Why are we being required to schedule a lengthy appointment (where we are required to watch videos we already covered in birthing classes so it’s a complete waste of our time) just to have her benefits updated for her age?! My daughter shouldn’t be at 6 months and having WIC benefits of formula and breastfeeding foods, it should have updated without us having to call to change it the day she turned 6 months!
I shouldn’t have to rely on SNAP to get the items WIC should already authorize... I can buy $170 of formula at once but can’t buy $2.50 of teething snacks.
