Upromise: A Different Type of E-Coupon

Join Upromise 728x90

Yesterday I told you about several different sites online where you can print free coupons.  I also told you about Cellfire, which is a site that offers e-coupons that you can load onto your grocery card to automatically save at the register.

Today I am going to let you know about a site that offers a different type of e-coupon.  Upromise is a website that allows you to earn money towards your children's college education by doing the things you are going to do anyway, such as shopping and getting gas.

They have recently implemented a new way for you to quickly earn savings:  e-coupons!

Now these are not like the e-coupons that we've discussed before that are deducted from your total at the register.  When you load these to your card, and then by the item at a store using your card, those coupon "savings" will get added to your Upromise account.

New coupons are issued at the beginning of every month and are valid until the end of the month.  The earlier in the month you load them, the longer you will have the opportunity to buy the item and have the credit added to your account.

The best thing about these is that they do not care if you also use a paper coupon for the items.  You will still get credit.  I once got credit for an e-coupon for Wacky Mac, even though I bought the Wacky Mac on sale, used a coupon that doubled, and got it for free!  So, in essence, I made money on that purchase.

To take advantage of these extra earnings for college, you will first need to join (if you have not already):

Once you have created an account, you will to add at least one grocery store card/credit or debit card to your account.  This is just so that know what to credit you.  If that card gets used, they will know to put the earnings into your account.

There are an overwhelming number of ways to earn extra for college on this site, but right now I want to focus on the e-coupons.  Once you are signed in, click on the tab at the top that says "coupons and deals".  Then you should see this:
You should click on the option that says "grocery eCoupons."  After that, a list of coupons should appear on your screen.  Select any and all of the coupons you would like (I select them all.  You never know when there might be a sale and you end up getting it anyway!)

That is it!  They should be loaded up to your store cards (CVS is even included on this site).  I just checked my account and I had earned 11% back on a BIC razor I bought at CVS back in April!  Not a lot, but its $0.21 that wasn't there before!

You have the option to print the list out on the scroll list on the right side.  I've not remembered to load these up the past few months, so I've missed out on a good bit of earnings it seems.

Be sure to click the image above and sign up if you haven't already, and load those e-coupons up ASAP so you have as longer time frame in which to redeem them!
