Start The New School Year With A $529 College Savings Award!

September is College Savings Month and CollegeAdvantage, Ohio’s 529 Savings Program, is excited to celebrate it with you!

So excited, in fact, that we are giving away ten (!) $529 CollegeAdvantage 529 Direct Plan College Savings Awards.  And the good news is, you don’t have to wait till College Savings Month to enter! You can sign up here starting today through 11:59 p.m. ET Sept. 30, 2016. And, you can enter once per day, per email address. See complete contest rules here.

Now , these awards are to encourage you to save now for future college costs. The earlier you start saving, the longer you get to enjoy the power of compound interest to grow your account balance. Additionally, a CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 Plan offers many tax advantages, including tax-free growth, tax-free withdrawals for qualified higher education expenses, and a deduction from your state taxable income for Ohio residents. And, if “back to school” for your student means back to college, you could even use the award this school year (if you’re a winner).

Have a child that’s starting kindergarten, but you haven’t started a CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 Plan yet? Now is a great time to get started. Almost anyone can open an account and anyone can contribute — whether parents, grandparents, family members, or friends — directly to a CollegeAdvantage account. Enrollment in CollegeAdvantage is easy. Even if your children are older, it’s never too late to save what you can while also taking advantage of the great tax benefits. 

Enter to win $529 today, and start your college savings with CollegeAdvantage this new school year!
