The College Savings Roundtable Discussion coincides with the launch of a new integrated campaign promoting the $25 College Savings Plan from CollegeAdvantage. The campaign’s message is simple: It only takes $25 to start a CollegeAdvantage account and saving regularly is easy with one of their auto-save options such as electronic funds transfer (EFT) or payroll deduction. To encourage regular savings, the Tuition Trust is offering a $25 matching contribution when families enter a promo code, enroll and sign up for payroll deduction or EFT. After the third deposit, the Tuition Trust will provide a $25 matching contribution in the account. Families can enter promo code TWENTYFIVE at to be eligible for the offer.
