Upromise And $50 Target Gift Card Giveaway – 2 Winners!

by Alli on December 12, 2012

With all the craziness of the holiday season, sometimes we lose track of what else we need to spend our money on. As always, we get shopping shopping shopping and realize later that we still have to pay for things – like college tuition!

With families expected to spend an average of $750 on holiday gifts this year, Upromise wants to help make budgets go further with free shipping offers and money back for education on top of some of the best deals offered by trusted brands! A survey recently commissioned by Upromise found that families want less stress and more meaning during the holidays. Parents’ biggest priorities this shopping season include crossing items off the wish list, giving meaningful gifts, being aware of budget busters, and reducing stress. Parents, grandparents, relatives and friends can give two gifts with one purchase by shopping through Upromise.com and using the cash back from that purchase to boost their college savings for the beneficiary of their choice!

To get everyone excited about saving a little more for college with Upromise, I am giving two lucky readers a $50 Target Gift Card!

To enter this giveaway, complete any or all of the options listed below. Giveaway ends 12/19. Good luck!
