Upromise (a site sponsor) offers cash back for purchases that I make online, at grocery stores, and at various restaurants. The money can be used to fund a 529 plan for your child’s college education. (Secret tip: You can elect to have Upromise send a check directly to you, instead of putting the money into a 529 plan. Read this post to find out how! You can then do whatever you want with the money.) After signing up, you can register your credit cards (boo..), debit cards (yay…), and your grocery/drug store cards (those little things on your key chain). Your friends and family can register as well and you can get their rewards credited to your account! (You can divide contributions between your kids or other people’s kids.) For more details, and to receive a $2 sign-up bonus, click the Upromise graphic below. Also, I’ve included a screen-capture of our rewards, year-to-date.
