Every plan offers "flex dollars" or cash value.

You can make smaller purchases instead of a full meal swipe (i.e. a coffee at Starbucks).

Flex dollars are loaded onto the your JWU ID card.


The balance will decline as flex dollars are used.

Flex dollars can be used at any JWU dining location.

Flex dollars cannot be carried over from term to term.
