Did you catch my post in the Facebook group? Use another one of my back to school savings tips to save even MORE on top of sales discounts!

Every time you leave a review on TPT, you earn credits to apply to future purchases! Saving up those credits and using them during sales means even MORE savings in your pocket! 🌟

To redeem your credits, simply click on your cart, and under the Secure Checkout button, you’ll find a section showing your account balance. You can choose how much you want to apply each time!


I also wanted to share another big money saver for those of you that have kiddos at home! If you haven’t joined ​Upromise​ yet and have a 529 account set up for your child, you can link your ​Upromise account​ to your 529 account and save even more money! (If you don’t have a 529 account set up, check with your state-sponsored plan or through your bank! Ours are through ​TN Stars​, and many states will allow you to join even if you’re not a resident.)

Places like Walmart are offering 10% back through Upromise this BTS season! πŸ€‘ Once you install their browser plugin, it will alert you when a store offers cash back. All you have to do is click the button before you purchase. It’s literally that easy!

I’ve made a little over $86 for my boys’ 529 accounts (with another $21 pending) in the last 2 months or so just with our normal grocery/household purchases (mainly because my children NEVER.STOP.EATING…can anyone relate? πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«).

I don’t have a partnership or any with Upromise–I’m just an educator and a mama sharing some back to school savings tips to help in this wild and crazy month. It also gives me comfort to know that all those purchases for goldfish crackers and all-you-can-eat yogurt pouches are helping us save some money in other areas too. 🀣 I like knowing that it’s for things we’re already purchasing, so if I can save a few dollars here and there by just clicking a button–then count me in! It’s also super helpful for saving some money for things you’re already buying for your classroom, especially anything you purchase regularly because it adds up FAST.

​If you sign up through this referral link, you can earn a $5 bonus for just signing up and an additional $25 for linking a 529 account.​

Final Thoughts on These Back to School Savings Tips
