Like you, I want  to feel that my money—and my time—is well-spent. That’s why I love discovering (and sharing!) little gems that make me feel like I’m getting more every day.

 

I started saving money for my almost-two-year-old daughter’s college education while she was just a bean in my belly. Still, every little bit helps, which is why I’m so psyched about UPromise, the program that helps you save a small percentage of your purchases for college.

 

You know about the UPromise system—and probably wrote it off (as I did), because you thought you needed to use their card to get the savings. But I just discovered that I can link any credit card to a UPromise account. Not only can I use my trusty AmEx, I’m still getting my regular rewards points to boot.

 

Now I get 1% to 25% back on everyday purchases from participating stores, online retailers and restaurants funneled into my choice of a high-yield savings or 529 account.  

 

My friends and family can even register their cards—which will also contribute to my girl’s college savings.

 

Looking forward to giving you MoreWorth this month,

-Cari

 

Plan ahead. What are you doing to save for your kids' education?
