Holiday Shopping



Please note that I was compensated for the content in this post. However all opinions expressed below are my own based on my personal experience with Upromise.

When it comes to holiday shopping, saving money is king.  But let’s be honest ~ if what I have to do to save isn’t easy, I’m far less likely to make the effort. That’s why when Upromise reached out about this sponsored post I thought the timing was spot on for busy Moms just like me. From researching prices and targeting the best time to make my purchase, to fighting the crowds when I visit the store, saving money just gets lost in the shuffle.

Shopping online is my secret weapon to saving money while holiday shopping.  As a Mom with a child who is going off to college next year, anytime I can make my money work for me and save while I shop is just smart and Upromise has my back.  Upromise is the widely known rewards program that is free to join and can help Moms earn cash back from popular online retailers such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target.com, Macy’s, Best Buy and more.

Now about my personal holiday shopping ~ I’m actually not the kind of shopper who stocks up all year long.  I love to shop in the midst of the season. With Upromise, Moms can earn rewards which can be applied to Sallie Mae student loan repayment, savings accounts, 529 college savings plans or even cash back.  This is music to my money saving heart because the clock is ticking on our college savings goals.  Check out how Upromise is making saving money, while holiday shopping, easier than ever before:

  • Upromise is free to join,  Wonder if it works? During 2012, members earned nearly $14 million during the holidays last year and since the program began nearly $800 million in cash back for college. Seriously. Awesome!
  • RewardU ~ a fabulous tool that will remind you about Upromise while shopping online.
  • Free Shipping ~ To help keep consumers in the green, Upromise will feature a free shipping day on Dec. 12, aggregating dozens of retailers’ free shipping offerings in one place.
  • Doubled College Savings Rewards ~ Upromise has many free shipping offers, online coupons and on Dec. 10 and 17, college saving rewards will double to 10% at featured online partners such as Macy’s, Finish Line, and Harry & David.  You had me at doubled!

The holidays are a time when Moms are working overtime to handle their busy days and the added excitement (and stresses) of the season.  I’m grateful for services like Upromise that take the guess work out of saving money while holiday shopping; helping me contribute to my family’s finances in a positive way when we increase our sending for the celebrations at hand. Tell me…

Do you use shopping rewards systems while holiday shopping?  

What’s your favorite program?

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ we’ll see you next time!
