So, I wrote this article explaining what are EBT Cards, and what are some rules you need to follow to order items through your ebt card.

Yes, Gift cards provided by Kmart or sears can be used on any Kmart throughout Australia and United States but they cannot be used in new Zealand and also Kmart has the authority to declare any item ineligible to be purchased through gift card, so you need to look for it when purchasing through gift card
