Upromise is a simple way to boost your college savings. As a Upromise member, you can earn cash back for college on the things you already do, like shop online, book travel, eat at restaurants, and more. Then you can add your cash back earnings to a college savings plan like an eligible 529 plan or GoalSaver Account. You can also request a check to contribute to a Coverdell ESA or UGMA/UTMA. Your money can earn interest or be invested for growth potential. Make regular contributions to your college savings plan and you’ll be on your way to meeting your goal.
