Trade Toys for Tuition!

In celebration of our 5-year anniversary, TNStars is making the holidays even brighter by giving you up to $500 more toward college. From November 13th through December 29th, Tennessee residents can get 5% extra on top of what you give to your new or existing account.*

That’s an extra 5% on all amounts contributed to your TNStars account, up to a $500 total gift this holiday season.*

Whether from a parent or as a gift from a relative, all contributions made to your child’s account now through December 29th are eligible to receive the special holiday incentives from TNStars! To make the most of this special incentive, encourage friends and family to trade toys for tuition this holiday.

All incentives are for Tennessee residents only. In the event more than one (1) account for any one (1) beneficiary qualifies for an incentive, the incentive amount will be applied to the first (1) of the beneficiary’s qualifying TNStars® accounts. Holiday incentive amounts are based on five percent (5%) of the total contributions to the beneficiary’s qualifying TNStars® account from November 13, 2017 to December 29, 2017. The maximum allowable incentive amount is $500 per beneficiary. Rollovers from the Tennessee BEST Prepaid Plan are ineligible to receive holiday incentives.
