I just joined UPromise not long ago, and I am wondering why I waited so long! There are so many ways to earn money by doing things I already do! Any money I earn is put into my Upromise account. I can then decide if I'd like to place it in a 529 account to pay for college expenses or if I'd like to receive a check.
Here's how to earn:
If you shop online through UPromise, you can earn between 1 and 25 percent back on all purchases you make.
Eat at participating restaurants:
"Get up to 8% back from more than 8,000 restaurants as a Preferred Diner when you pay with a registered credit or debit card." I prefer not to give out my credit and debit card information, so I'm not using this option, but if you feel comfortable with it, that's quite a bit more that you can earn.
Shop at grocery and drug stores :
Register your grocery store and drug store loyalty cards, and you will get 1-3% back on thousands of eligible items. All you have to do is make sure to scan your card at the store, and the money from any eligible items you bought will automatically be added to your UPromise account.
E-coupons, that is. Every month UPromise adds new coupons to their e-coupons site. Select the coupons you wish to use, and when you purchase those items, the value of the coupon will be added to your UPromise account. E-coupons will not affect your ability to use paper manufacturer's coupons either.
Invite Family and Friends:
If Grandma and Grandpa want to help with their precious grandkids' college bills, all they need to do is register with UPromise. They can then choose to have all their earnings go directly into your account. Just by adding one more person onto your account, you'll earn basically double what you would by yourself. If you get more people involved, that's even better!
I'm excited to see how quickly my earnings will to add up!
