A Back-to-School Promotion from Florida Prepaid: Enroll in a Plan by September 2 and Waive the Application Fee!

This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own.

The carefree days of June and July have come and gone, and now we’re into August. Here in south Florida where I live, this can be a stressful month. Not only do we enter into the peak of hurricane season, but the kids also head back to school. Now our schedules will be dictated by tests and homework, as well as sports and extracurricular activities. Even though these things bring on a lot of stress, I try to remind myself that they’re also productive and positive. My twins will be learning many new things and getting prepared for college. Fortunately, college is one thing that I don’t stress about because our family bought Florida Prepaid College Plans for all four of our kids! Thanks to this wonderful program, we have one less thing to stress about—how to pay for our children’s future education.

If, like me, you have children who will soon be heading back to school, I’m sure you’ve got a lot of items on your back-to-school list, including the purchase of school supplies and clothing, establishing new morning and after-school routines, and much more. But it’s entirely worth the effort to add one more item to your checklist: sign up for a Florida Prepaid plan. It only takes a few minutes of your time, but it has long-lasting benefits for the whole family.

August is also the perfect time to consider your child’s education because Florida Prepaid has established the Big Dreams Start Early Promotion. When you enroll in a Florida Prepaid College Plan from now through September 2, 2018, they will waive the $50 application fee! Just use the following promo code when you sign up here.


In addition to waiving the application fee, there are even more ways in which a Florida Prepaid College Plan saves you money. Their plans allow you to lock in tomorrow’s college tuition prices today, so that you don’t have to worry about how much public college or university costs rise in the future, or the ups and downs of the stock market. Florida Prepaid Plans are guaranteed by the state of Florida, and their value can be applied to qualifying institutions nationwide, both public and private.

My two oldest children are among the more than 450,000 students who have gone to college using a Florida Prepaid Plan, and my two youngest will join them when they graduate from high school. Thanks to our foresight in purchasing a plan for each of them, they’ll be debt-free when they earn their bachelor’s degree. What a great gift to give your children or grandchildren!

So, while you’re thinking about your children’s current educational needs during this very busy back-to-school season, I hope you’ll also turn your eyes toward the future by taking advantage of Florida Prepaid’s Big Dreams Start Early Promotion. The younger your children are when you sign up, the lower your payments will be. And there are a wide variety of plans to suit every budget.

Wondrous Weekly Giveaway Linky (August 4-10, 2018)

Welcome to this week's Wondrous Weekly Giveaway Linky! I apologize for the lack of posts on my blog this week. I was on vacation in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Unfortunately, it will be forever known as the beach vacation when we couldn't go in the water! Red tide (toxic algae) hit the beaches, and it killed off a bunch of fish, crabs and other sea life that all washed up on the shore. It wasn't recommended to go in the water, and it was even tough to breathe during certain times of the day near the beach. I felt sorry for the many hotels and businesses, which lost a lot of money due to red tide. We stayed because we had family meeting us there, but had to find other things to do that didn't involve beach time. Anyway, it will be added to our list of  unforgettable vacations! Now that I'm home, it's time to enter some giveaways! I hope you'll join me in checking out the giveaways in the linky below. Come back every day to see what new contests have been added. And feel free to share any giveaways that you're hosting in the linky and tell your social media friends about this page.
