UPromise pay out

July 24th, 2013 at 04:06 am

I'm not sure if many of you are involved with UPromise... I had signed up when it first started, about the time my oldest DD was born. Although at first I kept up with trying to get the rewards for everyday purchases, eventually I just got busy with other things and couldn't keep up with the participation companies, which cards to use, etc.

Now, ten years later, after getting an email from them I call them up and ask for help with my account, as I have long forgotten username and password. It turns out I had $128 credit with them, which I requested to be given to me in the form of a check. It arrived yesterday!

No, not the college assistance it was touted to be, but in all fairness I only really participated the first couple years. The $128 was a nice surprise, though, because I had forgotten all about it.

You may want to look into past programs such as UPromise and see if you have any credit remaining, I just assumed it would have expired, but was pleasantly surprised. I'll split this money between my DDs savings.

    My long forgotten funds were turned over to the State of Illinois (where I live) as abandoned property. I had to provide a few simple forms and my $81 was returned to me. Not much, but agreed, a pleasant surprise!

    On a similar note...the government publishes lists on-line of dormant/unclaimed bank accounts, sums forgotten in both chequing and savings accounts that haven't had transactions in more than 10 years. I wonder if any SA participants have found forgotten sums?

    I think I have around $20 in Upromise funds ... should try and see if I can log in to my account. Smile
