My son is only 1.5 years old but I have already started saving for College for him..Why? because I think this is an extremely important responsibility we have as parents. My parents paid for my schooling and I hope to be able to do the same for my baby. There is no reason to wait until the last minute to scramble to have enough money to pay for college. There are plenty of programs that help us parents start saving. My favorite is Upromise.
There are several ways in which UPromise works to benefit you and your loved ones.
1- Register your credit cards and participating store loyalty cards. Through this you can earn cash back on your purchases that automatically get put into an account for your child. Shop 850+ partners and add to your college savings plans with up to 5% cash back.
2- Apply for the Upromise Mastercard and get even more cash back. Cardmembers maximize their cash back for college by earning on every purchase. This is on top of what you’ll earn from our partners as a Upromise member. Shop our online partners and and pay with your Upromise MasterCard and you can earn 5% cash back for being a Upromise member, plus 5% for using the Upromise MasterCard on eligible online purchases – that’s up to 10% cash back for college. It adds up fast!
3- Finally opening a 529 account has never been easier. Upromise GoalSaver helps you set, visualize, and track your progress.
