New E-coupons on Upromise

Have you loaded this month's e-coupons onto your Upromise account yet? I just did, and here are some highlights:

Gold Bond - $1.00; trial sizes can often be gotten free with coupons

Huggies diapers - $1.00 and $1.50; no question as to whether I'll use these

Charmin toilet paper - $.75; who doesn't use this?

Snyder's pretzels - $.50 and $.75; I get these free when my grocery store triples coupons

What is Upromise and what are E-coupons?

Upromise helps you earn money by doing things you already do! Any money you earn is put into your Upromise account. You can then decide if you'd like to place it in a 529 account to pay for college expenses or if you'd like to receive a check.

Here's how to earn:

Shop online:
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.

Use Coupons:
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!


  1. I love Upromise. The fact that I can get credit to my children's 529 accounts by my family doing what we already do in our everyday lives is incredible. I suggest Upromise to all my friends with newborns. Most grandparents are itching to do anything to help their grandkids and this is one way they can help.

    btw I love your site. i am adding you to my blogroll.

  2. You mentioned that you could choose to receive a check. I signed up, but I've not seen that option. Do I need to purchase a few products this month before I see that option? Just wondering. Thanks!
