"Upromise is a simple, yet powerful idea. Join today & turn everyday spending into money for college.
Nearly a decade ago, Upromise was launched based on the philosophy that everyone should be able to afford a college education. Today, with more than 10 million members, Upromise is making that a reality for many Americans.
- Create a college savings service that harnesses the purchasing power of parents, extended family, family, and students to make it easier to pay for college. Members direct their spending to Upromise partners—including more than 600 online stores, 8,000+ restaurants, thousands of grocery and drugstore items—and earn money for college.
- Everyone can earn money for college—parents with young children; family and friends that want to contribute; students and graduates with eligible student loans to pay.
Many members have earned hundreds even thousands of dollars for college with their everyday spending, and have been able to use those earnings to contribute toward college tuition, expenses, or loans–quicker and easier."
If you do decide to sign up, remember that Upromise is a free service, and by adding your credit, debit or grocery card means that you can begin saving money for college every time you shop at participating retailers. I added my credit card, and am going to apply for the credit card that they advertise on their site. This way, I can create even MORE savings for teen son's college fund! :)
Let me know what you think about Upromise. Are some of you already signed up for this, and if so, what is the best way to "rack up the savings?"
