Free Shipping Day and 10 Percent Tuesday at Help Shoppers Save While Wrapping up Holiday Shopping

10:09 EST Monday, December 02, 2013

NEWARK, Del. (Business Wire) -- Don't break the bank, stay on budget and add to college savings during this year's holiday season, says Upromise by Sallie Mae. New for 2013, Upromise has many free shipping offers, online coupons and on Dec. 3, 10, and 17, college saving rewards will double to 10 percent at dozens of featured online partners such as Macy's, Finish Line, and Harry & David.

“As a busy mom, I shop online to save money and time, plus add to my kids' college funds,” said Erin Condon, vice president, Sallie Mae. “Free shipping offers and increased cash back for college at boutique and large retailers alike are a no-brainer for parents, grandparents and even recent grads.”

To help keep consumers in the green, Upromise will feature a free shipping day on Dec. 12, aggregating dozens of retailers' free shipping offerings in one place. To add to the savings, Upromise offers deals and coupons to cut costs in addition to everyday 5 percent cash back or 10 percent with the Upromise MasterCard on eligible online purchases at 850-plus online retailers. Cross one thing off the list of things to remember by downloading Upromise's RewardU toolbar, which reminds shoppers of participating online merchants.
