Earn 5% cash back for college on top of other savings

Join Upromise Now


Join Upromise Now

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).


Our Partners

We partner with 850+ online retailers willing to offer you cash back (not points!) for your college savings on top of other deals.

1 Product and partner exclusions and limitations to the 5% cash back apply. Go to View All Retailers for a list of cash back amounts by partner. Please see the deal details associated with the offer for full offer terms and conditions.
