As you may know, Amazon accepts Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) cards as a means of payment on certain FSA-eligible healthcare products — but you might be surprised at what’s included in the mix. At the Amazon FSA store, you’re not limited to just cold meds, glucometers and crutches.
With a new year underway, now’s a good time to check out all the Amazon FSA-eligible health savings at your disposal. Your purchases (even SPF) could be essentially “free” if you apply your unused card balance on an active FSA or HSA debit card. If you find yourself with leftover FSA funds in your FSA account, stocking up on health and wellness products is one way to ensure you don’t lose out on the money you’re setting aside. We’ve rounded up some unexpected Amazon FSA-eligible product pages to give you a better idea of what you can pay for with your workplace healthcare payment method.
