Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, and with overall student loan debt hovering around $1.7 trillion nationally, saving for a child’s education is climbing to the top of parents’ wish lists.

Just in time for the holidays, Virginia529 is committed to making it even easier for families to fund a loved one’s post high-school education with its “Give a Gift, Get a Reward” promotion. When you purchase a Virginia529 online gift card in the minimum amount of $50 online between Nov. 16, 2021 and Dec. 14, 2021, you’ll receive a $10 bonus gift code, good for a contribution to any Invest529 account.
