Learning something new every day!

About Me...

In June 2007 I decided to look into returning to school for my Bachelor's degree. I had been managing okay with my Associate's degree, but the idea of moving back home [South Florida] without more education under my belt was not so appealing. By the end of July I had started my first class. Two years later I am five classes away from completing that degree and my oldest child is about to start her college journey.

About This Blog...

With this blog I hope to share some of what I have learned through my experiences as an online student and now, mom of a college student. Here you will find great scholarships, student deals, and other information to help with your voyage into higher education. Happy Studying!

Upromise.com

  • Step 1: Click here to sign up.
  • Step 2: Get a quick and painless insurance quote from Liberty Mutual and earn $5.
  • Step 4: Apply for the UPromise credit card. This is wonderful. I have had mine for over a year now and earned $300 last year just for making purchases as usual. Earn 1% for all purchases, 10% for qualified gas and grocery purchases. Best of all get a $25 bonus after you make your first purchase.
Want more? Whenever you shop through UPromise online you earn a percentage of your purchase to be added to your UPromise account. I never shop anywhere online (or off) without first checking to see if there is a cash back opportunity available.

Still want more? Register your grocery and/or drugstore shopper card and save on certain items (see list here). Even better, get e-coupons loaded directly to your shopper card. Make a qualified purchase and instead of getting the discount on your purchase you will receive that amount in your UPromise account. Find out more here.


So, what are you waiting for? Create a 30 second video and upload before 12:00 p.m. EST on May 3 for a chance to win one of three $10,000 scholarships or a $250 gift card. Then head on over to UPromise and start saving even more for college today.
