It's not always easy to save money, especially when you have a list a mile long of wants and needs of both yourself and your children. I'm always looking for simple and EASY ways to save money. Upromise by Sallie Mae is one of those ways I can do that!
If you shop online a lot Upromise is a simple and easy way to earn money while you shop. Upromise has so many stores to choose from, this is just the "Kids & Baby" section.
They have all of the stores I usually shop at for the kids including Carter's. Saving with Upromise is as simple as signing up, finding the store you want to shop at and clicking a link. When you do a simple message will pop up letting you know you're being connected
And then you simply shop as usual. You will 5% cash back of your total purchase. You can also earn an additional 5% back if you sign up for and use the Upromise MasterCard.
If you're like me you may forget to use these rewards programs when you shop, Upromise makes it easy to remember when you install their tool bar. It shows you the amount of money you've earned and lets you know if the site your shopping at is available to earn cash back! Best part? The toolbar makes it so that you're automatically available for cash back on eligible sites even if you didn't click through from their website! I LOVE that feature!
Upromise also has local ways to earn cash back. Even if my small town I found resturants that participate! With 39,000+ local places in their database I wouldn't be surprised if their was an option near you as well!
5% may not seem like a lot, but it quickly adds up especially combined with other deals. When you're ready to redeem your money you can request a check, deposit into a savings account or a 529 College Savings Plan, or put it towards a student loan. The money can be put towards your own school loans OR someone elses.
It's not always easy to put away money, let Upromise make it easy for you!
