Here’s a fun way to save on a night with the Mariners from our friends with the Guaranteed Education Tuition program, or GET.
May 29th is national 529 College Savings Day, and our friends with GET will be hosting GET College Savings Night at Safeco Field. It’s a partnership with the Mariners and Parent Map, and yes, you’re invited! Families can get discounted tickets that include a souvenir t-shirt, plus it’s a fireworks night. Fun, right?
We went to a game recently, and it was a great family day. Even when the M’s don’t win (though that would sure be nice!) Safeco Field is a great ballpark.
Speaking of savings, don’t forget, the current enrollment deadline for new GET families is approaching FAST.
If just thinking about paying for college stresses you out, I really do urge you to be proactive now.
While you obviously need to make your own financial decisions, I can tell you that we have had GET accounts for our boys since they were babies, and in looking at the rate of return on our other investments, we realized it has been by FAR the best one we’ve made. We are thrilled that our boys will be able to go off to college with their tuition paid for, and we are especially thrilled that they will be able to graduate without a pile of loans and debt.
We’ve done it by starting early and putting aside a modest amount every month. It really is a case where time is on your side.
You can also call or email the GET Contact Center at 800.955.2318 or GETInfo@wsac.wa.gov. If you’re ready to enroll, simply Click “Start a GET Account” on the GET homepage to enroll online between (November 1 – May 31). The on-screen instructions will guide you through the process.
