Account holders are at risk of forfeiting an estimated $1 billion in FSA funds to the December 31 deadline. Fortunately, our product bundles are a quick and easy way to spend remaining dollars on health and wellness items that individuals and families use every day.

The average household spends hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year on recurring health and wellness purchases, from over-the-counter medications to menstrual care products, skin care, allergy relief, first-aid supplies, and more. In fact, FSA Store, the first and leading online retailer of exclusively FSA-eligible products, estimates that consumers spend $1,600 every year on products that could be purchased with tax-free FSA dollars. To help consumers spend down remaining dollars before the December 31 use-it-or-lose-it FSA deadline returns this year, FSA Store will introduce more than 20 all-new product bundles at a variety of price points during the months of November and December.

“FSA Store is committed to simplifying tax-free healthcare accounts, and that includes offering products and tools to help consumers spend down remaining FSA dollars – whether they have $30 or $300 left in their account,” said Shawna Hausman, chief marketing officer, Health-E Commerce. “Account holders are at risk of forfeiting an estimated $1 billion in FSA funds to the December 31 deadline. Fortunately, our product bundles are a quick and easy way to spend remaining dollars on health and wellness items that individuals and families use every day. If you’re buying these products already, why not buy them with tax-free dollars?”
