Upromise by Sallie Mae launches ‘Make the Pledge, Keep the Promise’ and will award a $150,000 full ride to college
The cost of a four-year private college education is expected to nearly triple over the next 18 years, according to reports. To inspire families to make a commitment to save for college, Upromise by Sallie Mae has launched a sweepstakes giving one lucky winner $150,000 to pay for college. All interested applicants are asked to complete the "Make a Pledge" form by November 13, 2012 to be entered into the grand prize sweepstakes.
Since 2001, Upromise members have received more than $700 million in cash for college. Upromise, a program which is free to join allows members to earn cash for purchases made online, at the grocery store or even by eating out at a participating restaurant. Now through Nov. 13, 2012, consumers are encouraged to pledge to save for college and join the millions of Upromise members marching towards a $1 billion savings goal. In addition to the chance to win a full ride to college as an incentive to start saving, each week for eight weeks Upromise will give away $500 gift cards to major online partners such as Travelocity, Macy’s and Walmart.
