Old UPromise accounts...

Thanks to a FaceBook reminder, I just went and checked on the old UPromise account that I started 12 or 15 years ago when this was a thing.  Since I never got their credit card, or linked in other family members, I never built up a big balance or started a linked 529, and hadn't had an email from them in a few years.

But the account was still there, had $140 in it, and in a couple of clicks I requested that it be sent to me as a check.  Just passing this along since others may also have lost track of old small amounts in the program.

not that simple. Definitely used old email, old credit card. Going to have to call

Mine still works. I'm going to keep that $14 in there and just added my Stop and Shop card.

We have had a U Promise account for both our children, ages 17 & 14 since they were born. My wife and I have also had a U Promise credit card, mine is linked to our oldest's account, my wife's is for our youngest. I would urge anyone with small children to look into this. In the 16+ years that we've held the credit cards, U Promise has contributed in excess of $5,000 into the children's 529 plans. I realize $5,000 may only pay for the kid's books, but better than nothing.

that's actually awesome. Heck 4 years of books is nothing to sneeze at!
