Bonus Bucks can be used at any dining facility on campus including Java City, the PODS, Freshiis, Taco Taco and Einsteins in the Commons dining hall. The biggest advantage of purchasing a meal plan used to be getting discounted lunches at Mabee Dining Hall for only $5.50. But this Fall 2018 semester, Aramark has agreed to offer the discounted price of $5.50 for meals @ Mabee dining hall without the purchase of a Meal Plan. Just show them your staff/faculty ID card so that you can enjoy a buffet style meal for $5.50. However, if you would still like to purchase a meal plan (for the convenience of having the purchase price taken out of your paycheck) you can surely do that so that you'll have those bonusbucks on your Tiger Card.
Important Note: However, please do keep in mind that all meal plan balances must be used by the end of the Spring semester. Unused balances for the fall semester, transfer over to the spring but then Any remaining Bonus Bucks balances are forfeited and cleared out at the end of every Spring semester. Unfortunately, there is no Meal plan option during the summer months due to the number of confernece attendees that also compete for the dining halls.
