Thinking about getting a jump on the Black Friday craziness and the Cyber Monday site crashes? There’s no better time that a Tuesday.
Before you head to any retail URL, first check your Upromise account to see if the store is participating in its 10% Tuesday promotion today. If it is, follow their link to your shopping searches and Upromise will credit 10% of your purchase totals (before taxes and shipping, of course) into your loved one’s college account.
Tomorrow, that amount will go back down to the usual 1 – 5% kickbacks most retailers have agreed to.
it’s the perfect way to stuff a few extra presents in their stockings and still save for their future.
If you haven’t yet opened a Upromise account for your children or other small fry in your life, this is the perfect day to start that habit, too. Click here, and start banking money for their college expenses from the things you’d buy anyhow.
