A few months ago, Upromise sent an e-message: “You don’t have to use that money strictly for college. It’s never too early to start looking for ways to help pay for your child’s college expenses. With Upromise you can start saving faster by doing the things you already do every day. And, you can join for FREE.”
If you have children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews, you can help them save for their college educations with Upromise. The program is free, and all you have to do is sign up and register all your store loyalty cards.
You earn a percentage of the amount spent, which goes into a 529 account for the college-bound student. It’s easy, and the more participants there are, the faster the account will grow.
I started one for my son Adam, and now since he’s finished with school, I’ll start one for my granddaughter, Ava. Join me in saving for your family or friend.
