  1. Those are some awesome prizes in the giveaway! The Prepaid plan is a wonderful idea to help pay for college, reducing the debt the student and/or parents could accrue.

  2. What a great plan! It’s always a good thing to start saving for college early. It can get expensive, that’s for sure.

  3. This might be a weird question but do you have to be resident of the state you sign up for or can you sign up for a state that you think your child will attend school in? Florida has some great benefits. I need to see if we have something similar in our state.

  4. This sounds like a pretty amazing service. I have to share this post with my friends and family who reside in Florida.

  5. It’s great that Florida has this plan! Both of my kids are done with college, and thankfully, scholarships and grants paid it all! College is so expensive!

  6. The prizes are tempting! That’s a good discount on the application fee for anyone that is looking to apply. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  7. This sounds like a really good idea to help parents lock in the price of an affordable prepaid college plan. We need to start considering something for my children. I didn’t know these existed.
