I used Upromise or babymint, purchased a computer from Dell going through the link on their page, and made about $14. Whoopee!

That's not a bad start. It certainly can't hurt to sign up for uPromise if I don't have to pay anything (except use my credit card for things I'd buy anyway). I just wonder if there's a catch somewhere.

There is no catch to upromise. I have been using it for at least 3-4 years, I think. You can either save toward a future education OR use the earnings to pay off current student loan debt (I do this).
