Introducing Future Scholar Gift Cards – Giving the Perfect Gift Just Got Easier

The gift of Future Scholar

The holiday season is almost here. Local stores have already begun hanging colorful decorations and piping happy tunes throughout the aisles. Online stores are busy advertising their best deals for the season. Have YOU started your holiday gift list?

If a child will be on that important list, you’ll want to make sure the gift you choose will be a lasting one. Children soon tire of the latest toys and video games, and they quickly outgrow even the cutest clothes.

But you can be sure a child will never outgrow the gift of furthering his or her education.

This holiday season, Future Scholar, South Carolina's 529 College Savings Plan, is making it easier than ever to give a lucky child the key to a bright future with Future Scholar Gift Cards.

Gift Card options

Future Scholar gives you plenty of gift giving options. Gift cards are available in denominations ranging from $25 to $200. You may select a physical gift card or choose an electronic gift card that can be immediately sent to the recipient. Of course, giving presents isn’t just for the holidays. Future Scholar also offers gift card designs for birthdays, new babies, and any other important milestone you wish to celebrate. So many choices make giving an important gift even easier!

No need to have an existing account to purchase

And there’s no need for the lucky recipient of your gift to have an existing Future Scholar account. If the child does not have an account, parents can simply open an account online and immediately deposit your gift. Since there’s no minimum to open an account, they can use whichever denomination you have chosen to start their child on the path to higher education.

Redeeming the gift card is easy

Redeeming the gift card is simple for account holders, too. Recipients visit to deposit the gift into a Future Scholar account. It’s that easy!

Before you know it, the wonderful child in your life will be using Future Scholar funds to pay for the educational expenses that will help him or her achieve important career goals. Future Scholar 529 funds can be used at any accredited school in the nation, as well as more than 600 international schools. Universities, community colleges, technical colleges, culinary schools, cosmetology schools, massage therapy schools – the list goes on and on. And Future Scholar pays for more than just tuition. Future Scholar funds can be used to pay for computers, textbooks, housing, meal plans and more.

The Best Gift You Can Give

You can be sure when you give the gift of education, you’ll be giving the best gift money can buy. Susan Latta of Pawley’s Island helped her grandson pay for college by contributing to his Future Scholar account.

“Our grandson told us that not having loads of college debt was the best gift we could have ever given him,” Susan said. Someday, a special child you know could say the same thing.

This holiday season, stuff their stockings with Future Scholar gift cards. You can even order a greeting card to accompany your present. Before long, a child will understand you cared enough to give a gift that can’t be broken, won’t be outgrown, and never goes out of style – the gift of education.
