ICYMI, you may have until March 15 to use up the last of your 2022 FSA funds. That's right, it's not too late. The IRS has been allowing employers to offer up to a 2.5 month grace period for employees to incur FSA expenses, and many generally go with the full 2.5 months, bringing the deadline to March 15, 2023 this year. So make sure to double check with your HR rep to see if this applies to you.
If you've got use-it-or-lose-it FSA or HSA money burning a hole in your pocket (or just need to start using up your 2023 funds), we've got 10 things you may not have thought of spending your funds on that are actually FSA/HSA-eligible—and all on Amazon, so they'll be here before you know it.
