Shop everyday to pay tuition

Raising children is an expensive endeavor, but there are programs put into place that can a little of the burden off the parent’s shoulders when it comes to those expenses. Especially college tuition, which will be as much as – if not more – than a home mortgage.

That’s why it’s a good idea to take every opportunity you can to put away as much money as possible. An ideal way to do that is by participating in Mission Tuition’s free educational savings program. Parents, relatives and students can use the site to shop with major retailers to earn money toward cash rebates.

When you sign up for Mission Tuition an educational savings account is automatically opened at Wells Fargo and once you shop online through the site the advertised rebate from the retailers is put directly into your savings account. It’s not difficult to use either: You will continue to use your own debit and/or credit cards to make purchases.

In addition, you can also open a state 529 tax deferred college savings account for your child; just review your state’s savings plan for details. If you want to access your money then all you need to do is let Mission Tuition know and they’ll send a check, per your request, or transfer the money to where you specify.

It's free to join Mission Tuition so what are you waiting for? It’s never too early to start saving just click through to get all of the details and make the first step to saving for college as easy as pie shopping.
