You may have heard of Upromise before, but did you know how really simple it really is to use? If you can shop, you can save for college. It’s true! You will earn real cash rewards which can be put towards saving for college including repaying your eligible student loan, a Upromise GoalSaver account, eligible 529 savings plans or even in the form of check (true cash back)!
Upromise by Sallie Mae is a free service which allows families to earn cash back for college, just for making every day purchases such as groceries, fuel and clothes. When I say it is free, it really is free for you to get signed up!
Upromise members can earn up to 5% cash back just by shopping with Upromise partners! There are more than 850 online stores, 10,000+ restaurants and 20,000+ grocery and drugstores – all of which work with Upromise! Some of the most popular online retail partners include Macys.com, Staples.com, Nordstrom, Dell …….and there are so many more.
Not only can you earn money for shopping, but you can also earn an additional 5% back when you shop online using your Upromise MasterCard. That means you save as much as 10%! Just think – if you spend even just $2,000 annually using your card, you could earn as much as $200 for college – just by shopping!!
So, how does this even work? First of all, you may want to apply for your Upromise MasterCard. Then, visit Upromise.com and visit their partner sites when you are shopping. You may also want to just download the RewardU toolbar instead. Just make sure you use one of these so that your purchases are credited to your account!!
I honestly believe that this is such an amazing program. I just learned that to date, Upromise members have earned $900,000,000 and counting, helping families contribute to college tuition, expenses and loans! That is a lot of money for college!!!!
Members can allocate their cash back earnings in several ways to help plan, save and pay for college. Upromise members can:
- Transfer earnings to eligible 529 plans or Upromise GoalSaver account
- Apply earnings to eligible student loan repayment
- Request a check for cash for books and other expenses
- Split up earnings across multiple beneficiaries
As you start shopping for Halloween, your Thanksgiving Dinner and even the holidays, make sure you do so using Upromise. Why not start saving for college without having to do anything but shop? It really is the perfect time to spend and save!!
