The Offer

ScholarShare link | Virginia529 link | Idaho Ideal link | Florida Prepaid link | MN Saves

In honor of “5/29 day”, various 529 plans are offering a special bonus for those opening a new 529 plan:

  • Open a 529 plan with ScholarShare with $50 and get a $50 match
  • Open a 529 plan with Virginia529 with $50 and get a $50 match
  • Open a 529 plan with Ideal Idaho with $25 and get a $25 match
  • Open a 529 plan with Florida Prepaid with $25 and get a $25 match

The Fine Print

  • These offers are available nationwide
  • ScholarShare is through June 1, and Virginia529 is through May 31

Our Verdict

Being that these two are offering a similar bonus, there may be similar bonuses elsewhere. I’m not familiar with the ins and outs of college plans and their tax affect – please do your own research before deciding whether to open one and which plan to choose. (People who get a state tax deduction to contribute to their own plan in their own state should do that first.)

Regardless, it could be a nice bonus for someone saving for college who was planning to open a 529 plan anyway.

Hat tip to readers Misha and to Jeffery who notes that you can open multiple accounts by having the beneficiary and account owner combination be different
