Kroger Committed to Education

CINCINNATI -- The Kroger Co. has teamed up with Upromise Inc. to help customers save money for college when they purchase products from America's leading brands at Kroger-owned convenience stores and supermarkets.

Thirteen of America's leading consumer packaged-goods manufacturers will automatically contribute 3 to 5 percent of the product purchase price into a Upromise member's account.

Participating manufacturers include Coca-Cola Co., Garelick Farms, The Glad Products Co., Gorton's, Keebler, Kellogg, Kimberly-Clark, McNeil, Minute Maid, Nestle Ice Cream Co., Procter & Gamble, Snyder's of Hanover Inc. and Welch's.

"We're delighted to offer our loyal customers an opportunity to save for a child's college education every time they purchase one of these brands in our stores," said Don McGeorge, executive vice president of Kroger, which operates approximately 800 convenience stores and 2,400 supermarkets.

Kroger customers can earn 3 to 5 percent back for college when they use their Upromise card to purchase any of thousands of participating items. There are no coupons to collect or receipts to keep. Families are then able to track their earnings through purchase summaries posted online in their Upromise account.
