According to a press release on Tuesday by college savings/rewards program Upromise (aff), members of their program have earned $500 million through the use of their program.
Upromise was founded in 2001 and has over 11 million members. Members can earn money in their Upromise account by shopping online at over 650 popular online merchants, by registering their grocery and drugstore loyalty cards with the program and buying specific items (instead of coupons being deducted at the register, the savings are deposited into the member’s Upromise account), by using the Upromise World Mastercard, and in other ways as well.
I always advise Upromise members to avoid downloading the TurboSaver toolbar, or any toolbar at all in fact. It may interfere with your ability to receive cashback from other rewards programs and at the very least, it violates at least some amount of your privacy as it tracks your browser activity.
Nice program, pretty decent cashback rates in my annual cashback analysis (due to be revised soon…stay tuned!).
