Just a quick reminder that the deadline for the Ohio CollegeAdvantage 529 Plan $25 refer-a-friend bonus is fast approaching. Sign up by June 30, 2010 and deposit at least $25 to receive a $25 enrollment bonus.
Plus, every couple that signs up can make $100 in combined bonuses! Here’s how:
- Go HERE and follow my step-by-step directions to enroll yourself for a 529 plan. If you use my referral code 2512918, then you will receive a $25 bonus and I will receive a $50 bonus. (My future child thanks you!!!)
- Once you enroll, make note of your account #. This will be your refer-a-friend enrollment code.
- Sign up your spouse, significant other, child, parent, sibling, etc. When filling out the application, have them enter your account # from step #2. You will receive $50 for each person you refer, and they will receive a $25 bonus.
- Grand total in bonuses for each couple that signs up: $25 sign up bonus for Parent#1 + $50 referral bonus for referring Parent#2 + $25 sign up bonus for Parent#2 = $100 TOTAL bonuses!!
Note: While I use the term “Parent” here, this would work for any two people – grandparents, aunts, siblings, friends, etc.
Don’t forget, you can sign up each of your children for their own account, so there’s even MORE potential for earning bonuses.

It takes less than an hour to sign up yourself and then refer and enroll a second person. I’m guessing more like 30 minutes start to finish. And don’t forget, so long as you withdraw the money for college expenses, you won’t get taxed on the withdrawal, so this is like getting paid $100 an hour AFTER TAX per couple! I wish my job paid that well!
