From Jan. 1 through March 31, the first 200 individuals to open and contribute a minimum of $100 each to a new NEST Direct or NEST Advisor 529 College Savings account will receive an additional $100 contribution to the account. The new account's beneficiary must be age 8 or younger as of March 31, 2019. To open an account and claim the bonus, visit NEST529.com/bonus100 and use the provided promo code.
“The New Year is the perfect opportunity to establish year-round resolutions – particularly when it comes to a family’s finances," said Stenberg. "As a way to jump-start these resolutions, we are happy to offer the New Year New Account $100 Bonus. This is an exciting opportunity to welcome new members to the NEST 529 community, while providing them with a boost to their higher education savings. We look forward to helping our account owners fulfill their financial resolutions for years to come and to another year of growth and success for NEST 529.”
The New Year New Account $100 Bonus kicks off another year for NEST 529. In 2018, more than $120,000 in contributions were distributed through bonuses, scholarships and giveaways.
