The semester is quickly coming to an end, and I bet you still have Flex Dollars to use! That may seem like an inconvenience to you, but it definitely can work in your favor. You can order a full size pizza in Devil’s Den and throw a pizza party get together with all of your friends before you say goodbye for the semester!
So I’m sure you all know what Flex Dollars are at this point in the semester, but if you haven’t used any and need a refresher, Flex Dollars are Tax Exempt and included in your resident meal plan. They are pre-loaded on to your CCSU ID Card and can be used at any of our on-campus dining locations including Memorial Hall, Hilltop Café, Social Sciences Grab & Go, and of course Starbucks in the library! Flex Dollars expire at the end of each semester, so it’s a good idea to use them so you don’t lose them!
So what about Blue Chip Dollars? Blue Chip is a currency that you can choose to put on your card, and it can also be used at any of our dining locations. The difference between Blue Chip and Flex is that Blue Chip can be used on-campus as well as off-campus. You can use it at the Student Center Bookstore, to do laundry, and at any on-campus vending machine. Blue Chip dollars roll over into the next semester, so you don’t have to worry about spending all of them right now, unless you’re graduating of course!
Now, I know what you’re asking: I don’t know how much Flex Dollars I have? How do I check my balance?
You can go to the online card office page by clicking here! Or search “CCSU Blue Chip” on Google. You can also see how many Blue Chip Dollars and Guest Meals you have left! Check it out below:
So….you’re telling me that you don’t know what to spend the rest of your Flex on? Well, you can purchase your favorite food or beverages at any on-campus location. Need a burst of caffeine before class? Visit Starbucks! Want a healthy smoothie while studying in the Student Center? Visit Natural! at Devils Den! You can use Flex Dollars at Hilltop or Memorial for friends or family who don’t live on campus (If you’ve ran out of guest meals, of course). Hey, you can even buy a mug from Starbucks and give it to your friend who has helped you through this long semester. (We’ll let you in on a little secret...Mother’s day is May 13th, grab her a bag of Starbucks Coffee or a Starbucks cup!)
Be sure to Check your Flex, Spend your Flex, and lastly…Enjoy your Flex!
