Upromise: A Step-By-Step Tutorial

Save for College the Smart Way!

Couponing can be overwhelming - and we sometimes ignore wonderful programs simply because we don't understand them.  I don't want any of OUR readers to lose out because we haven't explained something well enough, so this Step-By-Step Guide to Upromise is going will walk you through:
1) What Upromise Is
2) Gettingt Started/Sign-Up
3) Registering Your Store Loyalty Cards & Activating Coupons
4) How To Shop With These "E-Coupons" to Save Money!

1)  What IS U-promise?
It's a FREE Program that helps you earn money for your child's (Or grandchild, or niece/nephew, or even your OWN) College Tuition!!!  Not only that, you can even use the money you earn to pay off your old college debt!
You simply register your store loyalty cards, activate "E-coupons", and whenever you purchase those items, the amount of the E-Coupon will be set aside in a College Savings Account!

2)  Getting Started:

Step 1: Sign-Up for Upromise 
Step 2: You'll be invited into the Preferred Diners Program, and given the option to register your Debit/Credit Cards.  If you decide to do either of these (they're FREE), you will be able to earn $$$ just paying for gas, dining out, making online purchases, or anything that doesn't involve a store loyalty card.  But for now, let's stick to the basics!
Step 3: Go To Your New Account!

3)  Register Your Store Loyalty Cards:

★This is the most Important part, you won't save any money until you do this!★
✦ Enter your Zipcode to see stores available in your area that have participating loyalty cards.  (Those above are the stores near me!)

✦ Now register the cards you have - I've just entered my CVS card below:
✦ Then click "Submit" & then go to the "Coupons and Deals" Tab at the top of the page! (See Below)


✦ Next, choose "Grocery Ecoupons" from the Choices Below:

✦ You will now get to select all the coupons you want activated - I choose all of them, just in case!  After you've selected them - Click the Orange Button that says "Activate ECoupons" to the right.

Now you're ready to shop!

4)  Using Upromise E-Coupons to Save Money

✦ Upromise coupons will deduct automatically whenever you purchase a product that has a Upromise Coupon already activated.

✦ Upromise E-Coupons can be used WITH Manufacturer coupons!

✦ You don't have to spend time trying to make sure you buy items from your Upromise coupon list (In fact, I wouldn't suggest it!)  But even if you just shopped EXACTLY how you do now, you'd still have some money down the road you didn't have before! 

✦✦ Extra Earnings: Get your friends and family members to register their cards with your account, too - without doing anything at all, they'll be helping to contribute to your kids education!

The money you accrue can be redeemed in 2 ways:
 ✦  Sent in a check to help pay off your own student loans
 ✦  Deposited into a 529 Education Savings Account for the future
What's the catch?  There IS none!
You have NO reason not to join - and TONS of reasons (Cute, little kid-shaped reasons) to get on the ball with this program!  So Sign-Up, Link-Up Your Grocery Cards, and Start Saving Effortlessly!  Go HERE to register your cards with U-Promise!
