Easy College Savings Tool
by Chris Cyndecki on January 14th, 2014

How It Works:
  • Create an account at: http://www.upromise.com/welcome
  • Link your debit/credit card to your Upromise account.
    • Navigate to the “My Account” link (top right corner). On the left side, under “Build My Earnings,” select “Register My Cards.”
  • Eat at a participating restaurant and earn up to 8% cash back on your meal (including tax and tip).
    • Find a participating restaurant nearby at http://rn.upromise.com/ (Map view  tab)
  • Shop online through upromise.com and earn up to 8% cash back on eligible purchases.
    • Shop at: shop.upromise.com
    • Participating stores include: Apple, BestBuy, Kohls, Staples, Target, Toys “R” Us, Walmart
  • Activate eCoupons to earn cash back on participating grocery/drug store items.
  • Invite family and friends
    • Inviting friends and family to link their credit cards will significantly add to account growth 
The cash you earn goes to your Upromise account. You have the option of funneling the cash into a 529 college savings plan (tax-free investment growth). Upromise also gives the option of requesting a check for accumulated cash.
