They spend, you save.

Inviting family and friends is one of the best ways to boost your Upromise savings and it's easy! After family and friends accept the invitation you send from our site, all or part of the college savings will automatically be transferred to your Upromise account. It's very likely that people you know already shop with Upromise's 850+ online partners — why not make it really count?

Now when mom and dad shop online, your best friend books travel or Aunt Sarah fills up her gas tank, you can earn money for college!

Members who have people helping them earn on average over 3 times more than members who don't.1

Here's how it works:


  1. 1

    invite family and friends to join Upromise and help you save

  2. 2

    they accept your invitation, then shop online, buy groceries,
    dine out and more

  3. 3

    any college savings they earn go to your Upromise account

Using your combined earnings from family and friends:

All your earnings go directly into your Upromise account. You can accrue your savings over time, or choose to a) invest them in a 529 college savings plan b) use them to help pay down your student loans or c) receive a check that can be used to help pay for college expenses.

Actual family and friends savings depends on the number of Upromise savers linked to an account of qualified spending with Upromise partners.

1 The over 3x more cash back figure is based on Upromise internal reporting data through October 2013 showing that members who have family and friends linked to their account have accumulated over three times more in average monthly Upromise savings than members who have not.
