This one’s for the faculty and staff. The University of New York at Buffalo is running a special promotion for its card-holding faculty and staff that add funds to their campus card’s declining balance account. The reward? More funds.
According to a release on Buffalo’s official website, the promotion is being put on by the university’s Campus Dining & Shops and is open to all of the campus’ new and existing FlexiBULL Bucks account users.
Under the promotion, cardholders who add $100 to their accounts through February 12 will receive $10 free, while those individuals who add $50 will receive $5 free. Account holders are limited to a maximum $20 in free FlexiBULL Bucks.
The FlexiBULL Bucks plan — a prepaid debit account that is accessible only with a UB Card — allows faculty and staff to add money to their campus cards to make purchases such as food, supplies and gifts, at various locations on and off campus, as well as at campus vending machines. As an added bonus, any food purchases made at Campus Dining & Shops locations using FlexiBULL Bucks receive a discount, akin to a tax-free purchase.
FlexiBULL Bucks can be added to a UB Card using a Visa or MasterCard. Deposits are made via the FlexiBULL Bucks page on the Campus Dining & Shops website or by calling the UB Card Office. A CBORD campus, Buffalo also supports the use of a mobile device to top up FlexiBULL Bucks via CBORD’s GET mobile app.
Accounts can be opened with as little as $25, with additional funds being added at any time in increments of $25 or more. FlexiBULL Bucks don’t expire and carry over year to year until the account holder leaves the university.
