Flex Dollars (Eagle Bucks)

Students and employees not on a meal plan are able to buy Eagle Bucks and have them loaded onto their UCards.  The Eagle Bucks on your UCard function as a debit card (as at any of UMC’s food venues, as well as at Hong’s Chinese Restaurant).  Eagle Buck purchasers can receive an extra 10% bonus (e.g. $110 of Eagle Bucks for $100) when they buy at least $100 of Eagle Bucks.  Employees can purchase Eagle Bucks with a check, cash or credit card from the Eagle’s Nest cashier.
