Campus Dining Currency
Have you ever wondered what you can and cannot do with your Flex Dollars? Well, here is your all-in-one guide! Flex Dollars are our dining currency for meals, coffees, snacks, and late-night foods at Roberts Wesleyan University. Flex Dollars allows for various options, it all comes down to what you want to spend it on.
The first way to spend flex is on meals. If you ever run low on meal swipes, you can use some of your flex instead of a meal swipe. The most common way to spend Flex Dollars is over at the Intermetzo Café. Over at the café, Flex Dollars can be used to purchase coffee, pastries, fruit, and many more options. Whether it be for a morning pick me up or an afternoon snack, the café and Flex Dollars have you covered! The last and fan-favorite way to use Flex Dollars is at Late Night/Meal Equiv. Meal swipes can be used to purchase an entrée, side, and drink, while flex can be used to cover some additional items. Flex can cover items such as mozzarella sticks, pizza logs, chicken wings, mac & cheese bites, and just a side of fries. Flex Dollars can be used in several ways to satisfy any hunger. Flex Dollars may potentially be used over at our Starbucks location opening in the Golisano Community Engagement Center this coming January.
Along with Flex Dollars, there is also Discretionary Flex. Discretionary Flex is additional flex that has to be manually added onto a meal plan. Normal flex comes with a meal plan while discretionary flex has to be added on separately. Normal flex dollars are only good for one semester at a time and do not roll over to the coming semester. Discretionary flex, however, does roll over to the following semester. You can load up your meal plan with discretionary flex, and if you do not use it, all the remainder with still be there the following semester. One easy way to add discretionary flex is with our Flex Black Friday Sale. From November 8th until December 2nd, students and faculty can purchase $100 of discretionary flex and receive an additional $20 for free. To purchase some additional flex, students and faculty can ask Meg or any of our wonderful cashiers, and they will be happy to help.
Happy flex spending!
