I've had FSA accounts and whether I like them depends upon the specific way that the account works. Some give you a credit card that you are supposed to use to pay for FSA purchases - if it works, it's awesome. In my experience, it often didn't work.

It's also a pain when the card does work but two weeks later you're told to send in the receipt for that card purchase for verification. Dude, don't you already have a copy? PAIN IN THE A**.

And then there's the submitting the forms and receipts when the card doesn't work and you pay for the expense and have to get reimbursed. I haven't seen a reimbursement system that is painless.

Yea, it sounds like a fabulous idea - until it's December 1 and you're about to lose 5K because the account was such a pain to use all year long...

I often wind up stocking up on those medicine cabinet staples towards the end of the year if I've overestimated my spending. In fact, I should really be thinking about doing that.

Now if only the people on my Christmas list wanted bandages and aspirin, I'd be all set.
