If you have a job that offers a Flexible Savings Plan (FSA), you’re probably familiar with the old ritual of either running out of money in the account halfway through the year (hi, me at my old jobs), or having a ton of cash left over at the end of the year. That causes a mad dash scramble to pick up FSA eligible items like 1,000 band-aids or new glasses. But did you know that there is such a thing as FSA eligible sunscreen as part of the list of FSA eligible expenses? And some of these luxury sunscreen brands are the same you can find at Sephora or luxury retailers.
Something I recently discovered is that Amazon has an FSA store.
And the Amazon FSA store sells…wait for it…FSA eligible sunscreen. With first-rate and luxury brand sunscreen.
Yes! There is so much awesome stuff in the Amazon FSA store (whoever thought I’d be excited about medical supplies??). This is a combination of nerding out over sunscreen and loving that I can use pre-tax dollars on these amazing brands that are FSA eligible expenses. So dorky, sorry.
When I had hip labral tear surgery last year we used our FSA account to prep a bunch of things I’d need after surgery like band-aids and Ibuprofen. I think I went to CVS to pick everything out in person, but yo. If I had known I could have gotten all this stuff freaking delivered to me, and that it would all be curated in one place so I didn’t have to wonder what was FSA eligible or not, I would have been all up in it.
So I was scrolling through the Amazon FSA store and noticed some luxury sunscreen brands that are FSA eligible expenses. That got me excited about spending down the FSA this year.
Quality sunscreen can cost a pretty penny, so it’s wonderful to know that FSA dollars can be used for it.
Here are my favorite FSA eligible sunscreens that I found in the Amazon FSA store. You can buy some of these in stores like Sephora and Ulta, so it was especially exciting to find some of these luxury sunscreen brands in the Amazon FSA store!
