If you’re new to the system, a flexible spending account (FSA) is basically an employer-sponsored spending account that employees can use to save pre-tax dollars to spend later on medical supplies and health products. In April 2020, the FSA program expanded its scope to now include basic over-the-counter medications like Tylenol and Advil, making it more convenient than ever to stock up on the necessities.

The other convenience of the program is that you can spend FSA money at all your familiar haunts, including big-name stores like Amazon and Walmart. The two e-commerce giants have dedicated FSA stores on their respective websites, where customers can pick up anything from sunscreen and allergy medication to lip balm and first-aid kits.

To get just a sampling of what your FSA dollars can buy, check out the products below. For even more information, head to the FSA stores on Amazon and Walmart for the full picture.
