Parents want to help their children, and ideally we’d love to be able to help them with college costs as well, as much as we can. Upromise by Sallie Mae is a rewards program where shoppers can earn cash back for money for college, and by doing what we already do (shop), we can earn money toward the college educations of those we love.
Help Save For College By Shopping at Upromise
Members of Upromise have already received more than $800 million for college, and it’s free to join. By simply shopping online through Upromise.com at over eight hundred popular retailers you already shop at (like Target, Apple, Best Buy,and Old Navy- those are all my favorite stores!), families can earn up to five percent cash back on eligible purchases, and 10% if using the Upromise credit card. The money earned through Upromise can be put in a 529 college savings plan, used to pay down eligible student loans, deposited in a Sallie Mae savings account, or sent to you as a check.
This March is March Bonus College Savings Month and Upromise by Sallie Mae is increasing cash back for college to help families, college students and recent grads save for college. Nearly 300 online retailers are offering 7-20% cash back on eligible purchases made when starting at Upromise.com. This would be a great time to join!
You can save money toward college when you dine out, buy gas, shop for clothes, or even buy and sell a home, and that is increased when you use your Upromise credit card.
Enter To Win $500 Toward College
During March Bonus Savings Month, there is also a Upromise Facebook promotion in which just sharing your savings tips could win you $500 into your Upromise account. Just “like” the Upromise Facebook page and share a college savings tip (and while you’re there, maybe pick up a couple of new tips yourself). The winner will be announced March 26th (details at Facebook.com/Upromise).
