Saving Money for College Is Easier Than You Think!

I paid for my college education myself.  My parents were just never in the position to be able to save for college for my brother and I.  I don’t fault them for that at all.  Especially now that I’m a parent, I completely understand.  I’m not in the financial position (yet!) to save money for my kids’ college, either.  Or at least that’s what I thought…  Until I learned about Upromise by Sallie Mae.

Upromise Makes Saving Money for College Simple

Upromise by Sallie Mae is a really cool program that lets you earn cash back toward college savings while you shop online.

“Upromise is a rewards program where shoppers can earn cash back for college.  It is free to join and members have received more than $750 million through Upromise.  By simply starting your online shopping at Upromise.com at hundreds of online retail partners such as Target, Apple, Best Buy, Macy’s or Old Navy, families can earn five percent  back  for college on eligible purchases.  If you use the Upromise credit card, you can get 10 percent or more cash back.  Money earned through Upromise can be put in a 529 college savings plan, put towards student loans, deposited in a Sallie Mae savings account, or you can get a check.”

At first I was skeptical, thinking that probably the online stores I shop at don’t participate.  But I was pleasantly surprised with the many, MANY choices of participating retailers.  And I love that you can download the RewardU toolbar which reminds you when you are shopping at a participating retailer.  It makes it really easy to get those rewards and add to college savings just by doing the shopping you would normally do anyway!

I might not be able to have huge college savings accounts for my kids right now.  BUT this I can do.  Upromise if FREE and easy.  And every little bit helps.  So why not?
