    Question Anyone do Upromise?

    Does anyone here do the Upromise program where a small portion of what you spend in selected stores or on your credit card goes towards your child's college expenses?

    I did sign up for it but there was only a few stores here that qualified. I did sign up my grocery loyalty cards (is that what you call them - you know the store cards they scan). I also signed up my credit card but I don't use it that much. I guess every penny will accumulate and help eventually.

    Just hate giving out to much info to anyone especially credit card info.

    I do and so does Angie.

    I have all of DH's credit cards entered as well as all of my grocery store cards.

    That's good thinking ahead Kat. Glad to hear that someone else does it.

    I signed up my grocery card, but not my credit card. I figure that every little bit helps!

    I have signed up for my nephew. I haven't checked my account in awhile to see what my new balance is. I think it's a great thing to do.

    I do this program too. I haven't registered my grocery cards (no participating store near me) or my CC's. I've accumulated all through online shopping. It does add up slowly, but at least I'm getting something

    I use it on my store cards and debit cards. I also had my mom sign up so that she could help me in earning for all 3 of my kids.
    It does add up slowly, but well worth it!

    I wish I had started this sooner. I had heard about it but never bothered to check it out. We have 6 years or so for it to build and hopefully there will be something worthwhile in the account.

    I have upromise too. I use the Citibank Upromise CC. It helps a lot. Also, this year, I plan to do all my online Christmas shopping though upromise. Slowly but surely.
