How To Get A Jump-start On Savings
Thank you to Upromise for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own. #aceyoursavings #upromise
When I first became a mom I would get so excited when my daughter would get cash for her birthday or during holidays! I would immediately bring her to the toy store and let her pick something out. It didn’t occur to me for several years that this was instilling some bad habits and that I should have encouraged her to make better decisions with her money. We live… we learn… we improve! I now consider myself quite the expert when it comes to not only saving money, but helping my children get a jump-start on savings. There are so many ways to earn money towards your child’s savings without actually having to do anything different than you are already doing. I am so excited to share with you a simple way to earn cash and give your child a head start on life when they finally take those first steps towards adulthood.

Upromise® by Sallie Mae® is completely free to join, simple to use and a smart way to earn cash just by shopping online ,going out to eat, booking travel, and more. You can start saving for your child’s future… think college, student loans, auto loans, weddings and more!

If that doesn’t sound simple enough, than you are going to be blown away when you hear that Upromise also introduced the Upromise Mastercard to provide even more ways to earn cashback rewards with Upromise on everyday purchases. You can also earn up to 10% cash back for college, up to 5% when you make eligible purchases through, PLUS 5% when you pay for those purchases with the Upromise MasterCard.

I have spent so much time on the Upromise website, I am just blown away by the amount of resources and information that has helped me take advantage of all the ways to earn money for my children’s savings.

It may seem like your child has many years until college, but it is never too early to start saving! We all want to ensure that our child is prepared and ready to leave home and this is just one simple way to make that process easier for them (and you!)
