Since my servers have been having staying up today, I’ll just give a quick update to remind everyone to get a free $50 for opening a 529 educational plan. You don’t need to have children to take advantage of this. We don’t have children and I signed up under my own name. If we have children some day, I’ll transfer it to their names. If not, perhaps I’ll go back to school myself or give it nieces and nephews.
CollegeAdvantage has one of the best 529 plans out there, so I can’t think of a reason why you wouldn’t sign up. (Well, unless your own state gives some tax advantages to using your own state’s 529 plan.)
