The very first Flexible Spending (FSA) shopping app is now available in the App Store and Google Play. The app allows you to browse through thousands of FSA-approved products that you can order online and have shipped right to your doorstep. The best part is: EVERYTHING on the BuyFSA app is FSA-eligible and purchasable with your FSA card.
The FSA App for shopping with your FSA dollars
Here are some quick app highlights:
- Shop with your FSA in the store where everything is 100% guaranteed FSA approved
- No need to submit receipts to your administrator when shopping with your FSA card
- Fast and Free Shipping over $50
- Scan products in-store to check the eligibility status
- Get access to exclusive deals and eligible products only listed on BuyFSA
- Tax-free health spend with your FSA or HSA (both accounts can be used in-app)
The app is available in English and Spanish, making shopping simpler based on language preference.
The FSA Eligibility Scanner
The BuyFSA app comes with an FSA Eligibility Scanner for use in drugstores such as CVS and Walgreens. While you’re inside a store, you can scan barcodes that are usually on the back or underside of product packaging. Using the BuyFSA app, you can scan the code and it will tell you exactly which products are FSA-approved.
After scanning a product, there will be an “FSA-approved” or “FSA-ineligible” result. All of the scanned item barcodes that show as “FSA-approved” will transact if you bring them up to the counter at drugstores and grocery chains that accept FSA cards. Additionally, any products that are on BuyFSA.com will appear after scanning and you can purchase those items from your phone with your FSA card.
Tip: Add your FSA card to your mobile wallet just like you would with a regular credit card. This will make it super easy to buy any item listed on BuyFSA.com with Apple Pay or Google Pay.
List of national and regional grocery/drugstores that accept FSA cards
While you can use the BuyFSA app to scan any barcode to check for FSA eligibility, your FSA card will only transact in the stores listed below (or you can make your purchase on BuyFSA.com where all products are eligible to purchase with your FSA card). If you decide to make a purchase at a different store, you’ll need to pay with your personal credit card or cash and submit the receipt for reimbursement with your FSA administrator.
Stores that accept FSA Cards:
- Rite Aid
- Piggly Wiggly
- Food Lion
Note: Most local pharmacies and drugstores will accept your FSA card as well. There are thousands of registered local stores that will accept your FSA card. Just make sure to ask at the store counter if FSA cards are accepted prior to shopping.
