UPromise is designed to give parents an easy and affordable way to save for their kid’s education. UPromise gives you cash back when you go grocery shopping, eat out at restaurants, buy items from retail shops and more. You then have two different ways to use your UPromise money. You can deposit it into a college 529 fund for your kids. Or, you can even request the money back in a check!
UPromise is similar to Ebates or ShopAtHome…EXCEPT that you can actually attach your UPromise account to your grocery store shopping card (Like a Smith’s Fresh Values Card). You can earn up to 3% cash back, just for buying your groceries! Another way that it is different is that with Ebates or ShopAtHome, you can only buy products online. With UPromise, you can actually attach a credit or debit card with your UPromise account. So, if you go out to eat someplace and pay with that card, you will get cash back for that too!
Plus, say you have a Grandma or someone else who wants to help out. They can attach their credit card or debit card to YOUR account. So everytime they shop, you will get the cash back to save up for college expenses! Awesome right??
I think I do a pretty good job of letting you all know when there are awesome coupon codes out to use online. But, I can’t possibly post all of them. UPromise actually will tell you if there is a great coupon code to use for whatever store you are shopping at online.
Since we are already buying items, we should all take advantage of programs like these! Even if you don’t have kids to save for college, you can request a check back instead!
The service is completely free. All you have to do is create an account and register your debit or credit card with them so they can give you cash back! Easy right? And it is completely secure!
**Just for your peace of mind, UPromise is backed by SallieMae Government Student Loans and New York Life. So this is a legit program.. Take advantage!
