NEST 529 college savings kicks off 2019 with New Year New Account bonus

January 14, 2019

LINCOLN — First National Bank of Omaha and Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg recently announced the launch of the NEST 529 College Savings Plan New Year New Account $100 Bonus, a contribution matching program for the first 200 new accounts opened in the new year in either a NEST Direct or a NEST Advisor plan.

Through March 31, the first 200 individuals to open and contribute a minimum of $100 each to a new NEST Direct or NEST Advisor 529 College Savings account will receive an additional $100 contribution to the account. The beneficiary of the new account must be age 8 or younger, as of March 31. To open an account and claim the bonus, visit NEST529.com/bonus100 and use the provided promo code when enrolling.

“The new year is the perfect opportunity to establish year-round resolutions — particularly when it comes to a family’s finances. As a way to jump start these resolutions, we are happy to offer the New Year New Account $100 Bonus. This is an exciting opportunity to welcome new members to the NEST 529 community, while providing them with a boost to their higher education savings. We look forward to helping our account owners fulfill their financial resolutions for years to come and to another year of growth and success for NEST 529,” Stenberg said.

The New Year New Account $100 Bonus kicks off another big year for NEST 529. In 2018, more than $120,000 in contributions were distributed through bonuses, scholarships and giveaways.

“For new NEST 529 Direct and Advisor account owners, this bonus is the first of many benefits,” said Deborah Goodkin, managing director of savings plans at First National Bank of Omaha. “We are proud to support the higher education goals of individuals and families. I encourage newcomers to take advantage of this opportunity and to spread awareness and enthusiasm for the college savings process.”
