Re: 529 education savings account
You can also sign up for a 529 plan and set up a UPromise account. It allows you to get cash back on purchases, automatically deposited into a 529 account. My wife and I signed up for Upromise credit cards, which we use for our grocery shopping. I think you get 1% cash back on most purchases, but then on items with the Upromise logo you get 10% back. There are also a number of restaurants on the Upromise program that give you a bonus when you use your Upromise card. What's really nice is that you can add people to the account, so that Grandma and Grandpa can add money to the account with their purchases too. My parents alone have added thousands of dollars in cash back bonuses to our childrens' 529 accounts. Just make sure you pay off the balance every month so that you don't lose what you save in interest fees.
