Is a Ben's Bucks Account the same as Flex Dollars?

NO. Your Ben's Bucks account is unrelated to the meal plan. Instead, it functions as an ATM account and can be used on campus and at select off-campus locations. Flex dollars are part of the F&M meal plan, and they can only be used at F&M dining facilities. For more information about flex dollars or meal plans, please visit Dining Services.

What is a Ben's Bucks Account?

An account into which funds can be deposited and then accessed with the F&M ID card when making purchases at any of the locations listed below. The ID card is swiped through a terminal (in the same manner that a credit card is used), and the amount of the purchase is deducted from the account balance. This account cannot be overdrawn as the account holder can spend only the amount that is in the account.
