Saving with a Upromise Account

You pump gas at ExxonMobile, buy groceries at Super Fresh, Stop & Shop, browse the esiles at Publix and save for college. That's right! Just by making your everyday purchases at thousands of products and stores, a portion comes back to you in the form of a rebate for college education!

The funds go into your Upromise account under which you can register for a Upromise 529 savings plan managed by Vanguard. Vanguard is one of the most highly respected money mangement firms in the world.

Upromise is founded upon an ingenious premise under which thousands of companies and stores have signed up to help you save for college. They get something in return (of course); brand loyalty.

You're spending money anyway, why not spend and save with participating Upromise companies!

Here's how a Upromise Account works:

  1. Sign up for a Upromise account by visiting their website.
  2. Register your existing store cards such as Super Fresh, CVS, Stop & Shop, so that you get credit to your Upromise account when you shop.
  3. If you choose, register for a Citi® Upromise credit card, so you can save 1% anywhere, regardless of whether the charges are with participating Upromise companies.
  4. Sign up your family and friends. They can register their cards and every time they spend, the rebates get deposited into your children's Upromise account! There are no limits. You can sign up as many people as you want to have them help you save for your child's education.
  5. Open a college savings plan. If you choose, open a Upromise 529 plan to save for college.

I setup an account for my two boys.

It takes awhile for some of the deposits to start showing up in your Upromise account, but it seems like every time you log in to view your account, more funds have been deposited. Sometimes I browse through the transaction details and notice deposits associated with purchase that you made where you were not even thinking about saving for college. But save I did!

This is a great additional way to save for college by doing what you are doing already.
