Join Upromise Free to Save for College w/your CVS Extra Care Card

Save for College the Smart Way!Since I'm still struggling with this flu and being able to sit up long enough to do many posts I decided I'd repeat some older ones mixed in over the next couple of days--here's one on how to Join UPromise and Save for College.  I received an email from a Simply CVS reader awhile ago asking me to do a post about how you can earn money
with your CVS Extra Care Card thru Upromise. It's easy:  Join UPromise and Save for College by registering your CVS and other shopping loyalty cards.  Here are the details.

Many national brands will put a percentage of your purchase price in your Upromise account when you buy them with a registered store loyalty card (CVS and many other drug and grocery stores participate). You will receive 1-3% back on qualifying purchases from thousands of participating brands (you can find the complete list of brands on their website). They also have monthly electronic coupons you can attach to your cards that will add even more into your account when purchase the item (you can use regular coupons, too, for the same product)  Some of the brands sold at CVS include:
  • Elmer's
  • Domino
  • Nestle
  • Bic
  • Hefty
  • Bounty
  • Charmin
  • Krazy Glue
For each purchase you will only receive pennies perhaps, but together they add up over the months and you can then choose to invest them in a 529 college savings plan, pay down college debt, or request a check to pay for college expenses. And there are other ways to easily earn more in your Upromise account.
    Save for College the Smart Way!
  • Shop Online thru Upromise -- Get 1%-25% back from elgible purchases at more than 600 online retailers
  • Eat at participating restaurants -- Get up to 8% back from more than 8,000 resaurants using a registered credit or debit card
  • Invite family & friends -- your family and friends can register at Upromise, register their cards and accept your invitation for their earnings be transferred to your account (an easy way for grandparents to help pay for a grandchild's college)
And if you happen to have small children, by the time they are ready for college you could have quite a bit saved up. So if you are interested, click on the banner, sign up (it's all free) and register your CVS extra care card and other grocery loyalty store cards and start earning.
