Okay, I have a variety of reward cards. Can I register these with Upromise and get Upromise credit while still getting my normal bank/cc rewards?
UPDATE: Well, I just registered them all and we'll see what happens.
If anybody has any info on this....please share. I couldn't find anything that mentioned that I could not collect Upromise college savings in addition to normal rewards at the ccc.

I guess this is one of those cases where "assumption" on my part wasn't to my advantage. For some reason, I always assumed that if you had rewards, you wouldn't be able to participate in Upromise and vice versa.
Anyway, I have registered all of my cards to see how it works out.....if I get "double whammy" from Upromise and the banks reward system GREAT!
If anyone can share an example where you got your CCC rewards and Upromise savings account credit from the same purchases, I would love to hear about it! Thanks!

I was thinking more along the lines of those items that are not online, such as gas, grocery, restaraunt, etc. For example, my Chase Freedom pays 3% on several categories which may also pay something for Upromise.
Also, I have a couple "double" miles cards on all purchases. In addition, I found that some vendors are Upromise partners but do not participate in "bonus miles" through any of my cards that I can find.
One such place is Equifax.com. Upromise pays 10% on Score Watch, which I have been using for quite some time. So, I use my double points card, which is also registered to Upromise which pays 10%.
Just looking for ways to maximize the benefits of plastic

Anywhere I can get the 3% with Freedom Plus, or Bonus Miles I use them.
Where it is only 1% Freedom, I use my Escape Discover or CapOne Ultra which both get double miles on all purchases without limit.
Also Discover and CapOne have bonus mile/reward vendor relationships too. Occassionally I will find that where Chase Freedom may not, one of the other does.
Also, sometimes Discover or CapOne pay much more. An example: Old Navy & Gap. Freedom pays 1 mile per dollar plus 3 bonus miles. CapOne pays me 2 miles per dollar plus 6 bonus miles and since my wife likes to shop there....I want the rewards and bonus
