“I like that it helps increase the value of my dollar and puts the extra earnings into funding my greatest passion – my children,” said Wise Bread blogger Linsey Knerl in a recent review of Upromise. “A growing Upromise account balance is a reward you can feel good about providing for the next generation.”
