My boss paid for my Wii Fit

I work in a desk job. It’s very sedentary, and the most physically taxing activity is walking to the building next door for meetings. Because of this, the office has a health and fitness policy, which allows employees to claim an allowance of $150 per year for fitness-related equipment or services: sports clothes, gym memberships, that sort of thing.

Well, I submitted my form to apply for a reimbursement for Wii Fit. And it came through no problems:

I’d been a bit worried that I’d have to explain what it was, or why a video game should be covered by the policy, but I didn’t need to. In fact, the man responsible for vetting the claims told me his son had been asking for Wii Fit, too!

If you’re thinking about buying Wii Fit, maybe you should check whether your employer offers a similar scheme?

  4. This is great. It would be even better if they allowed you to set it up at work and use it during lunch to workout. 😛
