I've used upromise for many years. I only use it when the rebate is worth it (check evrewards.com) and when it gets to about $150 in rebate, I ask them to send me a check. I don't imagine it will ever be enough to pay toward college - and I'm pretty sure it would only come off the financial aid package anyway, if eligible - but every once in a while there's still good deals, especially with the IDINE.

I look at it as free money. I'd buy gas at Exxon/Mobil anyway, so why not get a penny back per gallon. I buy groceries anyway, so why not activate the ecoupons for products i expect to purchase. Etc. Rarely use the rebates on online purchases option as I usually get better CashBack rates elsewhere, but sometimes its competitive enough to do.
Keep in mind you can request a check at any time for the accumulated funds. You are not required to use them for education expenses.

Thanks for the information. I never knew we could get a check instead of paying for college. That means it is even better.
What is evrewards.com? Do you check it when you you are looking for rebates?
What is IDINE?
