Stocking Stuffer Idea from GradSave @gradsave

Are you ready for a cute stocking stuffer idea?

Stuff a stocking and ensure a future? Sort of catchy, right? Well as a Mom of three it is. With three kids to think “college” for, I know I have to start getting smart about saving for college tuition because at least one of the three will end up in a college of some sort.  At least I hope.

My little ones will be big ones some day heading off asking me to pay that lovely bill so they can further their education and become whatever it is their heart desires. That is why I absolutely love and stand behind GradSave 100%. The cool thing is that you can now choose to get your GradSave College Savings Gift Card via digital gift code or gift card by mail. What a cute stocking stuffer idea, now maybe your little one won’t know what the card is for, but I know my little ones think having a “credit card” aka gift card, is just the same as what Mama uses in the stores.

To think of your kids opening up their stocking and having a “credit card” found within it, of course they will think they can go spend it, but you will have to explain to them that it’s savings for when they are older. Place it in a secret treasure place, such as a lock box within your home with your child. Make a cute game out of it, and know that you are doing a great thing by starting to invest in your child’s future. Heck, this could even be a yearly tradition or a tradition for each birthday as well as Christmas.

I also want to share with you another awesome thing that GradSave has going on, their $10,000 Scholarship Sweepstakes, simply fill out a form on the GradSave Scholarship Sweepstakes page and be entered for a chance to win $10,000 towards your child’s future! That sweepstakes ends on December 31, 2012. It is open to US minus Rhode Island.

    I am 100% sure my kids would hate me if I got them a credit card that they had to save till they were older LOL. They want instant gratification ;)

      I get that totally. My oldest and middle child are all about saving, the youngest? Now he would not be too impressed either if he had to save it. My older son, who is 6, would love the idea of hiding “treasure” away until he is older.

    This is multi-state right? If so, awesome! We purchased Florida Prepaid for the older three, and then moved out of state. -_- Now my second oldest is in Florida for college, a bazillion states away and I hate it!

    It would be waaay better to have a plan that covered anywhere they wanted to go.

      Hello Rosey,
      My name is Eddie, I am the Community Manager for GradSave. You can link your GradSave account with any college savings plan. Have you heard of a 529 plan?

      Many states have 529 college savings plans which are tax-free and can be used for any school you wish. For example I opened up the Utah Educational Plan for my 20 month old daughter but I live in Miami.

      So the short answer to your question is YES, this is multi-state option.
      If anyone has any questions I can be reached at eddie@gradsave.com

      Happy Saving!
      Don’t forget to enter our sweepstakes, we are only a few weeks away from giving away $10,000.

      :)
