Launched in April 2001, Upromise was created to help families save for college. By joining forces with some of America's leading companies, Upromise allows families to get back a percentage of their everyday spending into their Upromise accounts. Upromise has built a simple way to help families learn more about their savings options, open investment accounts, and jumpstart their savings. The mission of Upromise is to make college more affordable for American families. You can split up your savings to be distributed between a number of children or even yourself to be applied to your student loan. How cool is that? Very easy to sign up and to use the program. By clicking the link above and signing up it helps me pay my student loan becuase I earn a small commission. Thanks for helping me!
