Here is something very neat that you can sign up for.. It is a way to save for your child’s college fund without having to do anything special.
UpromiseÂ was founded with a single mission in mindâ€”to help families achieve the goal of a college education for the children they love. Upromise provides the programs, products, and information parents need to help them reach their college-savings goals.
As aÂ UpromiseÂ member, you can save for college on everyday purchases such as gas, groceries, dining outâ€”even when you shop online.
And you can invite your family and friends to help you save too. When they join, a portion of their eligible spending can be deposited into your Upromise accountâ€”automatically.
The easiest way is to use their ECoupon. All you have to do is link your store cards (Fry’s, Safeway, CVS & Bashas) then load ecoupons to your Upromise account. When you buy the items you have a coupon for, the money will automatically go into your UPromise account. Once you have $10+ you can transfer it. There are a few options as to where and what you can do with the money. (Student Loans, Savings Account or 529 Plan).
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 so don’t forget to add them!!
