It’s rare that you come across “something for nothing” that doesn’t have strings attached. Well, if you’re a TDBank (formerly Commerce) member, there’s a little-known summer reading program whereby you get a free $10 in each child’s account every year for simply reading books with or to your children. My wife had been managing this each year with our Commerce accounts and once the TDBank acquisition occurred, the program didn’t seem to be advertised at all, but upon asking, it’s still active. A web search revealed this page with additional details as well: TDBank Summer Reading Program. This is not an affiliate link and I don’t advocate jumping around and switching banks for 10 bucks since you can probably get a better signup bonus elsewhere, but I am certain that there are several readers that are current customers that are unaware of this program since you have to ask about it to even know there’s a form.
We all know one of the best things you can do for a child is to read with them. And now, you can get paid for it for simply filling out a form and dropping it off! We have 3 children, so that’s $30 per year toward college for doing something every parent should do anyway.
- Read 10 books
- Print out the form
- Fill in the books
- Drop off the form
