UPromise Card Improves Rewards Program and Offer $25 Bonus

Upromise credit cardEarly last week, I received my brand new UPromise Credit Card from Bank of America. The look, however, isn’t the only change that was made after UPromise switched the card’s association from Citibank to BofA. The rewards program itself also got an upgrade.

I have been a UPromise credit card member since 2002, using it to shop mostly at grocery stores and online through UPromise to earn additional rebates. The card generally gives members 1% cashback on all purchases (see my UPromise review for details). So far I have accumulated nearly $500 rewards, all invested in the UPromise 529 College Fund for my daughter. But that’s not the only way to spend the rewards. In fact, if you have a Sallie Mae student loan, you can use your rebates to pay the loan as well.

Now the new UPromise card comes with two flavors, allowing cardholders to receive additional rewards when shopping at certain locations:

The Upromise World MasterCard credit card with Gas & Grocery Rewards

  • Earn 1% college savings on all purchases
  • Earn 10% extra college savings on thousands of Upromise participating grocery and drug store items
  • Earn 2% extra college savings on eligible gasoline purchases at Exxon or Mobil locations

The Upromise World MasterCard credit card with Dining & Grocery Rewards

  • Earn 1% college savings on all purchases
  • Earn 10% extra college savings on thousands of Upromise participating grocery and drug store items
  • Earn 10% extra college savings on purchases at Upromise Dining by Rewards Network restaurants

The card doesn’t have an annual membership fee and there’s no limit on the amount of rewards you can earn. If you are interested in getting the UPromise card for yourself, there’s a $25 bonus if you are approved for the card and make a qualified purchase.

BTW, the UPromise credit card isn’t necessary to earn UPromise rewards to save for college. You can simply sign up with the UPromise program, which is free to join.

    I’ve signed up for the Upromise rewards program, but never used the card. Will have to check that out.

    The card isn’t necessary to earn rewards, but there are some locations where you can get extra bonuses. Also some grocery items allow you to earn higher rewards (with the UPromise logo).
