An account into which funds can be deposited then accessed, with the F&M ID card, when making purchases at specified locations. At F&M, these funds are called Ben's Bucks. When making a purchase, the ID card is swiped through a terminal (in the same manner that a credit card is used), and the amount of the purchase is deducted from the account balance. The good news-this account cannot be overdrawn. The account holder can spend only the amount that is in the account.
Any F&M student or FPS can open an account.
Accounts can be opened or deposits made at the following locations:
1. Business Office (644 Race Ave.) 12:00-1:00, Monday through Friday
2. Auxiliary Services Office 10:00 - 4:00, Monday through Friday

Please make sure to include a note that includes the student name and that the funds are to be deposited into a debit account.
