Win-It Wednesday: $100 CollegeAdvantage Scholarships (3 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 16, 2011 · 192 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

It's tax time! The April 15th deadline is fast approaching, and if you're an Ohioan doing your taxes, you'll want to take advantage of the CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan. For the first time, this year Ohio residents can have all or a portion of their state tax refund directly into an existing CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan when filing 2010 state taxes online. This makes saving for college for your children easy and hassle-free.

Features of the CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan include:

  • Earnings are tax-free.
  • Deduct contributions from Ohio taxable income ($2,000 annually).
  • No enrollment or annual fee.
  • Use your funds at any college in the country.
  • Pay for tuition, room and board, or books.
  • Contribute as little as $25 at a time.
  • Transfer funds to another child.
  • Withdraw funds at any time.
  • Change investment options.
  • Benefit from professional money management by leading financial firms.
  • Save with FDIC-insured bank products.
  • Pay no enrollment fee, no maintenance fee and low administrative fees.

Three lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a $100 CollegeAdvantage scholarship to help boost your current account or create a new one! (NOTE: You do not need to be an Ohio resident to win this giveaway!)

I opened a college advantage account for each of my 3 children when they were first offered years ago. Now, two of the accounts are empty, with one college graduate and one to graduate this May. The third is still in high school, so she could use some help paying for college.
