Upromise $10 Signup Bonus

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

If you’re anything like us, you’re always looking for ways to save a few extra bucks for college. With that in mind, I wanted to point out that Upromise is currently offering a $10 bonus for creating and activating your new account (it’s free!). In case you’re not familiar with Upromise, it’s a college savings program that allows you to earn cash rewards on your everyday purchases.

While you’re not going to put your kids through college on Upromise alone, you can earn a good bit of money on the side for doing almost nothing. In fact, we’ve actually earned a couple hundred dollars simply by registering our grocery and drug store affinity cards as well as our main credit cards with UPromise.

Once you’ve set things up, you’ll receive cash rewards (deposited into your account) for purchasing certain brands at the grocery or drug store, as well as for using your credit cards at certain restaurants. For us, this has been a set-and-forget sort of thing in that we just go about our everyday business and pick up the rewards when we happen to do the right things — you really don’t have to alter your buying habits to benefit.

Note that you can earn even more by making online purchases through their “mall” or by applying for their credit card, though neither of these things are necessary.

So what can you do with your earnings? While Upromise encourages you to move your funds directly into a 529 account, you can also withdraw your funds simply by writing to them to request a check.

Once you’ve signed up, just be sure to activate your account.
