Commuter Meal Plan Bonus Offer for Spring 2013:
Buy a Block 90 & Get 40 FREE Food Dollars
Buy a Block 65 & Get 20 FREE Food Dollars
Incentive Food Dollars are not automatic with purchase of your meal plan. To receive the free food dollars you must bring your receipt to the RU Dining Services Office in Dalton Hall 2nd floor, behind Au Bon Pain by Friday, February 8th 2013. The incentive Food Dollars will be applied to the student’s meal plan account and ready to use on February 15th.
Using your Food Dollars: To use your free food dollars, (starting February 15th), ask the cashier to take the amount charged off your Food Dollars account BEFORE the cashier swipes your card (otherwise the amount charged will be taken out of your block meals). You can also use a block meal and if there is any remaining balance you can use your food dollars to cover it instead of using another block meal.
Finding your receipt: To find your receipt visit the RU Express website and login to your Account Activity page. Print the page with your most recent meal plan purchase showing and bring it in!
For questions please contact our Marketing Director, Dina Spanke at 540.831.7156 or by email at email@example.com
Commuters are also welcome to purchase any of our larger Resident Student Meal Plans.

Please note: If the account balance reaches zero before the end of the semester, the meal plan will no longer work unless additional Food or Flex Dollars are purchased. Any unused portion remaining at the end of the semester does not carry over into the following semester.
The RU Express Account is different from your standard meal plan in that it can be used anywhere on campus AND at certain locations off campus. An initail deposit of $25 is all you need to establish an RU Express Account on your student ID card. The RU Express Account also remains active as long as there is a balance available, any funds left at the end of the semester WILL transfer to the next semester.
