Most rewards programs try to get you to spend money. Wouldn’t it be great if a program actually rewards you for saving money instead?
That’s the innovative idea behind SaveUp, a free program that rewards consumers with SaveUp credits when they do something good, like adding money to their savings accounts or paying off their debt. The credits can be used to win a ton of cool prizes, like a new Prius, a Hawaii vacation, or a life-changing $2 million jackpot.
At Wise Bread, we’re all about giving you the best financial tips to live large on a small budget. So now, why not get rewarded for all your hard work and have a little fun at the same time?
That’s why Wise Bread and SaveUp have teamed up to help you stay motivated with your 2012 financial goals. SaveUp is giving away $1,000 exclusively to Wise Bread readers and 200 free bonus credits to anyone who join SaveUp via Wise Bread.
How to Enter:
We have three different prizes ($500, $400, $100) for three different contests. You can enter all three to increase your chances of winning.

SaveUp prizes are mostly lottery-style instant scratcher games. Each prize costs 10 credits to play. So with 200 free credits you can play 20 times! Personally I like to go for the prizes with the highest values. For example, these are my favorite:
SaveUp has some other great prizes that can fulfill awesome fantasies:
Here’s a message from our contest sponsor:
Unlike traditional rewards programs that focus on driving consumer spending, SaveUp rewards users for performing positive financial actions, such as contributing to their savings or retirement accounts; paying down their credit cards, mortgages or other loans; and engaging with SaveUp’s financial education content on the site. Americans who bank at more than 18,000 US financial institutions nationwide can register their financial accounts on SaveUp and immediately begin earning SaveUp credits every time they save money or pay down their debts. The credits users earn can be redeemed for chances to win instant prizes and entries into weekly and monthly drawings.
SaveUp’s prizes range from the exciting (retail gift cards, consumer electronics) to aspirational (luxury vacations, home or wardrobe make-overs) to life-changing (a new car, money for college tuition, debt pay-off, or a $2 million jackpot).
In addition to making SaveUp fun and rewarding, we employ bank-level encryption to make sure our program is safe and secure for our users.
During this tax season, SaveUp wants to reward you for filing your taxes with the opportunity to win great prizes sponsored by TurboTax.
How it works:
1. File your FREE Federal Return with TurboTax
2. Log in to SaveUp and enter your TurboTax order number (Top right side of the page)
3. Automatically get entered into six $1,000 drawings
4. Earn 500 SaveUp credits (In addition to the 200 you earned as a Wise Bread reader)
Use your credits for the opportunity to win great prizes:
$10,000 “Double Your Tax Refund” sponsored by TurboTax
$10,000 “Pay My Taxes” sponsored by TurboTax
Vacations, cars, electronics, and cash up to $2 Million
