Sign up for UPromise and start saving BIG at checkout


Upromise is one of my favorite ways to save for my children's education.  It is a savings program that rewards you with money for college education, but you may also cash out the money you have saved in your Upromise account and receive a check that you can deposit into your bank account and spend on anything you want! Just submit this form here.

There are so many ways to earn cash into your Upromise account. The main ways I save is by linking my Pick 'n Save card, CVS card, debit, and credit cards. When I purchase a Upromise participating product or shop at a Upromise participating merchant, I get credit into my account balance.  I currently have over $20.00 in savings there.  To be honest, I forgot that I had connected my credit cards and just noticed that when I ate at Tazinos during our Couponing for a Cause event, I got a credit of $0.33!  It might not seem like much, but every penny helps!

One of the quickest and easiest ways to grow your Upromise balance is by using the Upromise e-coupons. Each month Upromise releases about $40 in coupons that you have to load onto your cards at the Upromise website. When you purchase that item with your Pick 'n Save or CVS card, you'll receive the equivalent balance of the coupon in your Upromise account.

For example, if you are planning on buying Comet from Pick 'n Save and "clip" the coupon and it will automatically be registered to your card.  If you have a paper coupon from the paper or online, you can use that at checkout as well, giving you double the savings!

Here is a current list of all the Upromise coupons available. If you think you might buy these items, go ahead and load the coupons now. They will be good all month!

$0.75/1 Comet Soft Cleanser

Maggiano's Little Italy Review

Betsy and I had the chance to try out Maggiano's Little Italy, located at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.

We decided to meet some friends there for dinner one Friday night.  Betsy made reservations for us through Open Table, which meant we only had to wait a couple minutes before we were seated.

We started off our meal with an appetizer of crispy onion strings.  We both enjoy them a lot and order them often as an appetizer from various restaurants, these were just as good as any we have had.  You also get a pretty generous stack of them to enjoy, we had to bring some home.  If you don't feel like having an appetizer, you could just start your meal off with the basket of warm bread they bring to your table.  You can have it plain or there is oil on the table available for dipping.

Betsy ordered the spaghetti with meatball.  Yes, that meatball is singular, because it is about the size of a baseball.  It is served on a small hill of spaghetti, with your choice of marinara or meat sauce.  The meatball was moist and nicely seasoned, and there was a nice amount of sauce over the perfectly prepared noodles.

I ordered the mom's lasagna with meat sauce.  The piece of lasagna was very big, piled high, and had a lot of meat sauce poured over the top.  It has crumbled meatballs and italian sausage, plus ricotta and provolone cheeses.  I am a big fan of lasagna and this one didn't disappoint.

Both of our pasta servings were so generous that we had to bring home leftovers.  But we made sure to leave some room for dessert, which for us was a creme brulee.  The vanilla custard was warm and creamy and the top was nice and crusty.

We signed up for their email club before we went, they will send you various deals at different times.  The first one we got was for $10 off our order which was a nice deal.  We will most certainly be going back again.  I suggest you give it a try if you haven't yet.

Thanks for reading.

-Mr. Betsy
