FSA Store Flexible Spending Account

Though it is often in the backs of our minds, health care is a vital, and often expensive part of our lives. We want the best health coverage that we can afford for our families. Oftentimes, money comes out of our paychecks and we aren’t entirely sure what exactly we are paying for. Many of us even have Flexible Spending Accounts, but are we entirely sure what they are? And are we letting deadlines pass without even using our money?

FSA Deadline Fast Approaching

An FSA {Flexible Spending Account} is an employer-sponsored health coverage plan that allows consumers to set aside tax-free money for health products and qualified health care services. The FSA Store makes it easy for you to use your FSA funds so that you don’t lose them. If your health insurance plan has a grace period, then you currently have 2 weeks {until March 15th} to use your 2012 FSA funds. FSAstore.com has the largest selection of FSA eligible items on the internet, including thousands of FSA-eligible products including breast pumps, blood pressure monitors, first aid, sunscreen and much more.

The FSA Store offers 100% money back guarantees, free shipping on orders over $50, and sales are tax-free in most states. You can also pay with your FSA Card or any major credit card, making purchasing easy. The FSA Store also offers live help via chat through their site or you can call them, toll free for assistance.

Research shows that consumers waste $400 million a year because they don’t spend their FSA money on time. I don’t know about, but I hate to waste money. I sure don’t want to put my money into an account with the whole purpose of saving for a rainy {sick} day, just to let it waste because I let a deadline go by. Don’t let that happen to you. Use your hard earned money before it gets lost.

    I didn’t realize that over the counter pregnancy tests count!

  2. This is great to know! I had never heard of the store! With my sons ER trip last month and $500 deductible, we won’t have a problem spending what’s left!

  3. Tara Gauthier says

    This is an interesting concept, it is always interesting to see how health care works in other countries.

  4. thanks for the great information

  5. thanks for the great info! I dont have to worry about an FSA account this year but always had some left over and never knew what to do last time!

  6. Wow, I didn’t even know services like this existed! It will come in handy next year when the husband actually has a job and we all have health insurance.

  7. I wouldn’t have been able to attend college if it wasn’t for my FASFA. I got so many grants and enjoyed quite a bit of government aid. A must for anyone planning on going to college! I recommend getting it in sooner rather than later if you want to get the most out of it!

  8. Thanks for sharing the info. I’m kind of clueless when it come to taxes.

  9. Thanks for posting this, we have like $600 we need to spend!

  10. Well, my husband owns his own company but we are not on the stage to be able to provide health care for the employees (we are at a point where we either offer health care or we pay them their salary)….but this is a nice concept.

    I has one of these in college and it really helped cover the things tuition did not.

  12. My hubby hasn’t tried this before. My dad did it before and he likes using it and it does save him on taxes.

  13. This is interesting for sure. I have never heard of this before your post. My husband’s job is union and does not have this to my knowledge.

  14. What a truly fantastic idea!!!

  15. Thanks for the helpful info! It’s always a horrible thing to let money not get used and stretched as far as it can go!

  16. You are making me nervous thinking about taxes and money!!! UGH!

  17. I have never set up an account because of the chance of losing money, who can afford to lose money. I will look into it now, did not know this store existed.

  18. We do this and don’t use it thinking that it will benefit us in retirement

  19. I have heard of those, but we don’t have employer-sponsored healthcare right now. Thanks for the info!

  20. Great information. I will let my husband know about these resources in case we have extra funds left over.

  21. Eek! I need to get on this…thanks for the reminder. Just finished our taxes and I said I would look at FSA next.

  22. Glad I came across your post, thanks so much for the info really need to sort out that side of things.

  23. I do not have one of these accounts–AND I never realized there was a deadline for spending the money! Do you lose it? That does not seem right if you yourself put that money in there–if it is only the employer who does–well–what can I say–USE IT!!

  24. Wow, I really need to do my research on Flexible Spending Accounts. I had no idea. Thanks so much for the info!!! Very much appreciated.

  25. We use ours a lot, but it’s sad that OTC medicines are no longer covered. Sometimes we don’t have the extra cash when we run out of something.
