EBT debit cards work the same way that a traditional ATM debit card works. If the QUEST symbol is not displayed on the point-of-sale or ATM machine, look for signs that display EBT, SNAP or food stamps. Ask a store manager if the signs cannot be found. Most EBT cards can be used in Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia as well.
