When you join Upromise, you can earn college savings from your everyday spending – on things like gas, dinner out, online shopping, and more. Plus, your earnings can be set up to transfer to your Direct Portfolio College Savings Plan account on a quarterly basis.3
It's a simple idea: register your current credit or debit card and every time you make an eligible purchase with a Upromise partner, a percentage of that money goes directly into your Upromise Rewards account, which can then be invested in a CollegeInvest Direct Portfolio college savings account. Save when you spend for groceries, dining out, online shopping, or more.
