But first, a catch-up. I received the $250 Visa today from Quaker. How fun is that?
I received a response from Bob's Red Mill stating that they didn't even have a contest going on Instagram but would send me some samples for my troubles and thanked me for informing them. That was nice of them and I was glad to learn they were not the source of the scam.
Now, the new win was $2,000 put into a Nest529 College Savings account in the name of my Granddaughter. You can only use it for college expenses like tuition and books. You cannot pull the money out if the Granddaughter does not go to college. In fact, you have very little control over it except for submitting receipts for college. This account is owned by the Nebraska Education Savings Plan Trust. I'm not familiar with Nebraska law but 529s are run a little bit differently in Texas, if I remember correctly from my working days. I wish it was $2,000 in my bank account but I am truly grateful that I am able to do this for my granddaughter and son.
You guessed it. I have a big smile on my face and in my heart.
More later ....
