Sure, eating on campus isn’t likely ever going to replace your favorite restaurant, but are you aware of the simplicity of only carrying your Binghamton University picture ID card for food purchases on campus and not worrying about having cash in your pocket?
As a Faculty/Staff meal plan member, there is no need to carry cash. A Faculty/Staff Flexible Dining account is a prepaid debit card system that operates on a declining balance basis, specifically for the ease of dining on campus. The member’s account is reduced by the dollar amount of the purchase including tax.
A minimum deposit of $25 is required to enroll in Flexible Dining. As an incentive, Binghamton University Dining Services has developed an enrichment program under which we will add 10 cents on every dollar you contribute to your account. It is our thank you for your business, and in today’s world, a 10% boost added to your account for every dollar you deposit adds up. Furthermore, it’s simple to start and easy to use.
You may enroll at any time either in person at the Meal Plan Office located in the University Union Building, or use our new easy and convenient on-line system to open your new Flexible Dining account. We’ll immediately credit your Binghamton University ID card. Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card (our on-line system only accepts credit cards). You can add money any time your balance gets low, either in person, via telephone, or through our new on-line card office at http://myBUcard.com. Only those opening new accounts are required to deposit the minimum $25 payment.
Members maintaining accounts need not add the minimum at the beginning of each semester. Your funds are available throughout the year.
Please note that Faculty/Staff using this plan will be charged 1.8 times the posted price in the resident dining centers.
Does your department host special events throughout the year? Why not open a Department Account at the same time and charge your special catered events to your account? You’ll get the same 10% enrichment that individual accounts receive. The savings, especially for catered events, really add up. We suggest each department account start with $100 which will automatically turn your buying power into $110.
Note: This dining account is suitable for eating in non-resident dining locations. Use of the account in resident dining will incur an additional surcharge.
