I Forgot To Register My New Debit Card To My Upromise Account!

I recently opened a new checking account. I have a new debit card, associated with the checking account. I’ve been using the debit card for a couple of months, mainly for smaller purchases like gas and food. Well, I logged in to my Upromise account today – and I realized that I had forgotten to register my new debit card. I quickly grabbed my card and registered it. In 4 or 5 days, I’ll start earning rewards from Upromise, whenever I swipe the card.

I was reviewing my Upromise account – I’ve been a member since 2004 – and I have accumulated a decent amount of money. My parents and my wife’s parents have added their cards to our account – so our entire family is earning rewards for college.

So, if you have a Upromise account, and you have a new debit {or credit (boo!)} card, you might want to make sure that you have registered it with them.

By the way – I am a Upromise “affiliate” – so, if you don’t have an account with them and you would like to sign up for one, click this link – Upromise.  I’ll make a few bucks and you’ll start earning free rewards.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot.  If you don’t want to transfer your Upromise rewards to a 529 plan, you can get them to send you a regular old check.  Click here to read an article that I wrote about how to get Upromise to send you a check.

  1. Thanks NCN,

    I had gotten a Electric Orange and a reissued credit card, so none of the cards I used were in UPromise.

    I even got my last statement and I had earned .10 cents, and it didn’t even occur to me why it was that little.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  2. For those of us that still have student loan debt, Upromise will transfer the money to participating lenders.

  3. I’ve seen ads for Upromise before and thought it sounded neat except that I don’t use credit cards anymore. I didn’t even know you could use a debit card! Thanks for the heads up, NCN. I used your affiliate link, signed up, and now I’ll be earning money toward paying off Sallie Mae. Thank you!!
