My Check From Upromise Arrived

As I mentioned a few months ago, I recently sent a letter to Upromise, requesting a withdrawal from my account. I am proud to say, I received a check from Upromise last week, and I’ve now deposited that check into my savings account.

I have been using Upromise to earn reward dollars for more than five years.  Instead of investing my reward dollars with a 529 Plan, I withdraw my reward dollars, once a year, and deposit them into my savings account.

For someone like me, who doesn’t use credit cards, Upromise is a great way to earn a few extra dollars.  I like the fact that I can register my grocery cards (those little things that hang on my keychain), scan those cards at the grocery store, and even when I pay cash, I’m still earning rewards.
