    Comments

    1. What is even better is that I bought the Breathe Right nasal strips using my flexible spending account (FSA) debit card. The FSA is a health care spending account that you sign up for with your company during open enrollment. I got the $4 RR with no out-of-pocket expense.

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @pfstock – I've heard of those, but my plan doesn't offer the debit card. What a great way to save money easily!
