there are no "food stamps" anymore. It's a cash amount only to be used for food on a card. EBT card, that's like a debit card. LOL.

 Foodstamps are a monthly dollar amount that can be spent on food. It spends just like regular money. Nowadays it's mostly put onto an EBT debit card.

I'm not sure, depends on who's buying them but normally its 50 cents cash for each $1fs. If you're lucky you'll get someone to pay $1 for $1.


I assumed you were selling them. Sorry if I was wrong.

Food stamps used to be like paper coupons. You would spend them at the store like cash, and then the store would be reimbursed by the government. They don't do that anymore, it's now a debit card system.

Most of the time I have been accosted by someone trying to drag me down to their benifit abusing level, they offer to sell them 50 cents on the dollar. So if someone actually did do that, they would purchase fifty bucks worth of groceries with the stamps, but pay the scammer 25 dollars cash.

Ok let's say you get $220 a month in fs (ebt). It is loaded every month on a card like a debit card. It spends just like $220 in cash for food items.
