New York, NY (PRWEB) December 24, 2014
FSAstore.com, the only e-commerce site exclusively stocked with FSA-eligible products, today announced the availability of contact lenses on its new FSA Store Optical site. Around 35 million Americans who are enrolled in FSAs can now shop for contact lenses using their pre-tax money on the site. For many with an FSA, a major spending deadline is also approaching on December 31, by which all money must be used or it gets forfeited.
Flexible Spending Accounts are employer-based benefits that allow participants to use tax-free income on eligible medical services and healthcare products - including eye care. According to the National Eye Institute of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, more than 150 million Americans use some type of corrective eyewear, and spend more than $15 billion annually.
By using an FSA, consumers effectively save up to 40%, as compared to purchasing these items out of pocket elsewhere. FSA Store Optical sells all the major brands of contact lenses including Acuvue, Dailies, Air Optix, ProClear, Bausch & Lomb, and Biofinity. Consumers can use their FSA to buy the exact same lenses as they would get from the doctor at a lower price and with the added convenience of direct-to-home delivery.
"FSAstore.com's mission has always been to make it easy and convenient for FSA holders to manage and use their accounts. Offering contact lenses at discounted prices only seemed a natural fit as we give consumers added breadth in shopping for FSA eligible products," said Jeremy Miller, CEO & Founder of FSAstore.com.
Since 2010, FSAstore.com has been the only e-commerce site exclusively stocked with FSA-eligible products - eliminating the guesswork behind what is reimbursable by an FSA. Consumers with Flexible Spending Accounts can access thousands of high quality FSA-eligible products and much-needed information through the Eligibility List. FSAstore.com accepts all FSA and major credit cards, offers 24/7 customer service, one-to-two-day turnaround for all orders, and free shipping on orders $50+.
