May Upromise eCoupons

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

More beginning of the month savings!! Upromise has loaded new eCoupons. These are a little different than the other e coupons for a few reasons:.

  • You can use them at almost any store!
  • The money does not come wyb at the register but is put into your Upromise account.
  • Load as many coupons as you want, there is no limit.

Why use the Upromise e coupons?
Normally when you buy something that gives you money back for college it gives you .03 -.10 cents for the item. Using the e coupons you are increasing the amount significantly that you get back.

Can I use a coupon too?
Yes! These are not tied to coupons or discounts in the store. They are rewards from the manufacturer for using Upromise and buying their product.

I don’t have a kid…
Not a problem. We had a Upromise account for almost 2 years before our kids were born. Once we had kids we went in and changed the beneficiary from our names to our kids names. Grandparents can also sign up and have it go to their grandchildren! We have 3 sets of grandparents all saving a little bit for our kiddos. You can change the beneficiary at any time.

How much can you really save?
Well, you aren’t going to send them to Princeton just from your savings, but it can be a nice chunk of money by the time they get there. It depends on how much you remember to use their system. We have been a member for almost 6 years and have over $3000 saved. Since we have 3 kids this won’t go very far but it is $3000 that we didn’t have to dig up to save. (No it’s not all from e coupons, they just started the e coupon system last year.)

      How does it work? Is there a card or something to load the ecoupons on that you swipe when shopping?

    • You can register your store cards (CVS, Kroger etc.) with them. Also, for Publix who doesn’t have a store card, you can pick up a Publix upromise card at your CS desk for them to scan when you check out! Then your account is credited for a percentage of items you buy from upromise partners and if you load the ecoupons then purchase the item, a credit will show up in your account after a few weeks.

    • Kay

      Thank you! Was just coming back to update that I found out the information, guess I should have researched first :o)… but I do appreciate the response and will be heading to Publix to get a card. The children use to bring them home from school but I never shopped at Publix until two weeks ago when my friend introduced me to the world of couponing and this wonderful website! Cannot believe what we’ve been missing out on in so many areas of our lives…thanks Jenny and the rest of you for your contributions and guidance.

    • Emily

      Does it hurt or cost anything to just select ALL the ecoupons?

    • nope :)

    • MiniMidgMom

      Thanks, I’ve been meaning to look into this. And thanks for the tips about the grandparents.

    • MiniMidgMom

      Meagain. I tried to sign up and it’s a credit card. Do you have to get their credit card to join? I know my parents won’t want to participate if that’s a requirement.

      • Jenny

        You do not have to get the credit card. Just skip past that page if it prompts you for that and keep going. We got it a while back and then closed it because it just didn’t help save that much.

    • Ashley

      From what I found, you do NOT have to get their credit card. Look at the bottom or far right side of the page. There should be a link that says, “No Thanks.”

    • Lauren

      Do you do recommend the upromise dining and registering the credit/debit cards? I’m always skeptical of giving out this information.

      So many people say it to you, but we really DO appreciate all you are doing for us. You have allowed me to stay home with our new baby and not work. We knew God would provide for us and the day after making the decision and stepping out on faith, I found your site and the money we have saved has been that extra breathing room we were praying for. Thank you so much!!

    • Lauren

      You do have to have a card at a participating store, right? Otherwise there’s no way for them to know you’ve bought the item — or maybe I’m missing something.

      Does Walgreens participate? Now that I’m typing this, I realize I should just go ahead and go to the upromise site and look up the participating stores!

      Thanks for all your help, Jenny!


    • Jenerfer

      Hi there! Thank you for your post! I have heard a lot of people saying to set up an account, but no one has really explained it like you did, as it makes sense to me now! I do have a question that I could not find the answer to on the website. Do you have to buy the required amount of product in one transaction to receive credit or does it keep track and credit you when you have met the threshold? Example: get .55 wyb 8 Fisher snacks. Do you have to buy all 8 at once? Thanks again!

      • Jenny

        That is a good question and to confess I don’t know the answer but I’ll ask them and find out for ya!
