Lots of folks think that Upromise is only available to help you save for your kids education. Nope, you can pay an existing loan or even have a check cut and use the money however you would like!
Check out the options available:
- Save for college: Make your earnings work harder by opening a 529 college savings plan. If it’s a 529 plan that’s administered by Upromise Investments, you can link your new 529 plan account with your Upromise account.
- Earn interest: Open a High-Yield Savings Account by Sallie Mae®, link it to your Upromise account and earn a 10% annual match on your total Upromise earnings.
- Repay a college loan: If you’re paying down an eligible Sallie Mae-serviced student loan, you can use Upromise Loan Link to automatically transfer your Upromise earnings. If you’re in need of education financing, you can also apply for a new Sallie Mae-serviced student loan.
- Request a check: You can also just request a withdrawal by check. What could be easier?
Remember, Upromise is a totally FREE program and Publix is a participating store
They have several ways to earn money.
- Shopping Online
- Grocery eCoupons
- Upromise Dining
- Upromise Credit Card
All you have to do is join Upromise. Then, next time you are shopping just go to the customer service desk at your local Publix and request a set of Upromise cards. Just set up an account/log in to Upromise and register your Publix Upromise card (plus any additional grocery and drugstore loyalty cards) and the hard part is done.
I post the list of eCoupons on the first of each month. That is when I always load mine. Just click on the eCoupon page on the Upromise site and load the eCoupons. I always load all of the coupons since I never know what deal I might find. Then, all you have to do is shop as you normally would. When you purchase items that correspond to the eCoupons you will get thatcoupon amount deposited into your Upromise account! How easy is that?! No paper coupons to manage and nothing to track–it’s done for you!
