When you make an eligible purchase from one of our online partners you can earn 5% cash back for your college savings, plus take advantage of other special offers.1 It’s like getting an extra coupon on top of all the sales you’re shopping.

How to Earn When Shopping Online

Earning is easy once you join Upromise.

  1. Start your online shopping by logging into Upromise.
  2. Search for retailers in the search bar, or click Shop Now and search by category or all retailers. Click on the website you want to shop.
  3. Take advantage of deals and promo codes you have from the retailer or elsewhere.
  4. Make your purchase as you normally would.

Because you logged in and clicked through from Upromise, we know to give you your cash back for college.

This money for college goes into your Upromise account. You can use your earnings to pay down existing student loans, invest your earnings in an eligible college savings plan, or simply request a check ($10 minimum).
