I recently received an e-mail from Upromise.com explaining amazing ways to save for college as well as pay back your loans. What Upromise.com does is make the money you are already spending in your daily life work to pay for your education.
You can register your credit cards and store discount cards ie CVS, Stop & Shop, Rite Aid etc so that every time you use your cards you can earn money for college or to pay back your loans. There are options to allocate what amounts you want to go towards saving and paying if you need to do both. You can invite friends and family to help by sending them your own personal savings link.
I think that Upromise.com is a great way to get money saved by doing everyday things. You can earn quicker, learn how to be better informed on saving and get others involved. College is extremely expensive these days and not everyone can always afford it. Scholarships are not always available. Now you can help yourself to make sure you aren’t swimming in debt. Families that have more than 1 child can make college education a scary prospect. Everyone wants their children to get a good education but in some cases it isn’t feasible. Upromise.com has a variety of different ways to save including a special credit card (which I am not sure is the best way to save but for some people it might be) as well as savings accounts. You can learn all about your options by visiting Upromise.com to see what works best for you or your family.
