Give a Gift that Lasts a Lifetime with an Invest529 Gift Card

RICHMOND, Va. (Dec. 12, 2018) -- It can be challenging to find the perfect gift for a grandchild, nephew, niece, or other young loved one.  Virginia529, the nation’s largest 529 plan, announced today the availability of its Invest529 gift cards in more than 600 Target retail and H-E-B Grocery locations across the country, just in time for the holiday season.

Customers can purchase Invest529 gift cards in denominations between $25 and $500. Recipients then redeem the co-branded card at, adding the value to a new or existing Invest529 account.

Invest529 accounts can be used to fund qualified higher education expenses at eligible schools nationwide and even overseas. They can be used at public or private universities, graduate schools, and vocational schools.

“More families are saving in 529 plans, and we have seen ---and heard --- since launching our gift cards in 2017, how families appreciate the simplicity and flexibility of using these gift cards to save for education,” said Mary Morris, Virginia529 CEO.

"The cost of education continues to increase and parents need creative solutions for funding post high-school education.  Our gift cards make a great birthday, holiday or anytime gift for family members and friends.  We hope that these gift cards and our improved online gift center will enable Invest529 to help more families around the country successfully prepare for the future.”
