UPromise Back to School Twitter Party 7/30 8-9pm EST #UpromiseBTS

Next week, I will be co-hosting a back-to-school Twitter party with Upromise. Those of you who know me, know that I have loved and used Upromise for years.

One of the first things I did as soon as I had my first child was to sign up for a college savings fund. Then when I discovered Upromise, I got the entire family involved. As a Upromise member, I have saved thousands of dollars for my kids to use towards college just by my everyday shopping.


Nearly a decade ago, Upromise was launched based on the philosophy that everyone should be able to afford a college education. Members direct their spending to Upromise partners—including more than 900 online stores, 8,000+ restaurants, thousands of grocery and drugstore items—and earn money for college. Everyone can earn money for college—parents with young children; family and friends that want to contribute; students and graduates with eligible student loans to pay.

Many members have earned hundreds even thousands of dollars for college with their everyday spending and in fact, have saved over $675 million collectively. Members have been able to use those earnings to contribute toward college tuition, expenses, or loans–quicker and easier. Today, with more than 10 million members, Upromise is making that a reality for many Americans


Monday, July 30 from 8:00-9:00 pm EST, we will be talkingabout back-to-school and discussing ways to make it easier on everyone while saving for college.

Follow your hosts: @StacieinAtlanta (that’s me!) and @UPromise


We even have some great prizes for 11 lucky winners during the party including a $500 gift card for Harry & David!

$500 @HarryandDavid giftcard  – Winner announced at the end of the party

5 $50 Staples gift cards

5 $25 @FashionPlaytest giftcards

All winners will be randomly drawn from the RSVP linky througout the party.


All winners will be drawn from this linky and must be present at the Twitter party to win. You will have 10 minutes to claim your prize by filling out the form or a new winner will be drawn.

I am a compensated participant in this party.

    As a college student, Upromise has been a great tool to save up for when I pay back loans.

    I definitely want to start saving for college for my son. He is only 3 but I know how important it is to start early. I have a lot of my own student loans, and feel like I will still be paying on them when it comes time for my son to go to college, I don’t want that for him
