CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan | $25 Bonus Offer + $100 Giveaway

by Marcy on December 21, 2011 · 30 comments

If you are still struggling with what to get the young people in your life this holiday season, consider a CollegeAdvantage 529 savings account! We have been talking about setting these up for our girls for awhile now – it would be so nice to have family contribute to these for their birthday or Christmas when they want to give our girls something practical. And because it only takes about 10 minutes to set up an account online, we really need to consider doing this over our holiday break!

If, like me, you need some added incentive to start a 529 plan, open a CollegeAdvantage account by 12/31/11 and fund it with at least $100, you will receive a $25 bonus if you use the promo code SAVINGS during sign up.

One thing I have learned about 529 plans is that most states have one, but you can use the plan that most appeals to you – even if you don’t live in that state. You can learn more about the CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan and decide if it is best for you here.

1 lucky winner is going to win a $100 CollegeAdvantage scholarship – to be placed in their new or existing CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan account!

What am I giving away?
