For your convenience, Dining Services has created a staff/faculty meal plan that is called Dining Dollars.
Dining Dollars works very similarly to Declining Balance, but provides a 10% bonus in the form of additional dollars on your account with each deposit, e.g., if you deposit $100, your account will be credited with $110. So by using Dining Dollars you are essentially saving the cost of the sales tax, plus an additional 4%.
So just give the cashier your Racer Card, and you're all set!
