School is starting up soon and we will be sending our little ones off to learn as much as they can in those hallowed halls. Have you started thinking about saving for college for when they leave those school halls? Do you have a saving plan in place? Whether you already have something in place or not, you can sign up for a Upromise account.
This is one of the easiest ways to start saving for college. Get started now right in time for back to school. I signed up for Upromise when my daughter was just a baby. After you sign up you can enter your grocery and drug store savings cards and credit card numbers onto their very secure site. Then based on the products you purchase Upromise will make a deposit into your child’s Upromise account. You can tie these savings to a 529 plan or wait for them to build and take out a lump sum. Basically the more you spend the more you are saving for college for your child.
Upromise offers savings in all areas such as grocery coupons, travel, restaurant deals and more. For my coupon fans, they have coupons you can load or coupons at retail stores. There are more than 800 online stores and 8000+ restaurants to choose from. You are bound to find some where you can save. Just think of saving on nearly every purchase you make and having that money go towards your child’s college fund. I can’t think of a better way to save.
Easy Ways for saving for college:
- Shop on line through Upromise
- Eat out at participating Upromise restaurants
- Go to the grocery store and drug store
- Invite family and friends to share in the savings
