FSA-Eligible Health Products You Can Buy on Amazon and Walmart

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.

Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.
Five rooms of one's own.
Allwood/Amazon

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.
