What are Fringe Benefits?
Fringe Benefits are above-and-beyond benefits that employers give their employees. Some fringe benefits are given to the general population of employees while others might only be given to C‑level employees. Some fringe benefits are given as rewards for work well done while others are administered to all.
Fringe Benefits are typically used for recruiting or retention purposes by an employer. They can include things like tuition assistance, childcare reimbursement, stock options or even coffee and meals.
Fringe, offers a fringe benefit marketplace. Funded by their employers, employees are able to select from over 100 innovative and life-simplifying services. Unlike traditional benefits, Fringe benefits meet needs now.
Our services include massage, grocery delivery, child care, ride sharing, student loan pay-off and a whole lot more!

Do you support international currencies?
Our point conversion is $1 USD to 5 Fringe points. Every day we review all products with non-USD currencies, and update their point pricing according to that day’s exchange rates.
One thing to note: if you are using Fringe outside the US and your selections exceed your available points, you will be prompted to pay the difference with a credit card in USD. You will pay a 3% conversion fee. The balance will be represented in USD, but your card will be charged in your native currency.
