Should 30 years of marriage mean a cash reward?

In a new survey published on earthtimes.org, two-thirds of people think it should. The survey was commissioned by UTango, a revolutionary new consumer loyalty rewards program “offering young couples a chance to earn life-stage cash rewards of up to $10,000, $100,000, and $1,000,000 at 10, 20 and 30 years of program participation”.

All you have to do is remain married and loyally shop with more that 300 popular merchants, including Barnes & Noble, The Home Depot, and, you guessed it, Ice.com.

I guess now it does pay to be loyal!

    What a cool idea!

    Absolutely agree a successful 30 year marriage should be rewarded. Seriously, staying married (been married 8 yrs) and raising kids it isn’t easy so I think its great someone, in this case uTANGO has come up with a program to recognize successful marriages.

    Best part is…all I have to do (besides staying married) is spend money I already spend to raise my family, etc… Whish this had been around when I got married!!!!!!!

    I just checked out the uTANGO site to understand this a little better. It’s a really cool proposition. My parents just celebrated their 40th, and I’m on my 3rd, but I know that even the best marriages are tested sometimes. It seems like this program recognizes the sacrifices a couple makes over multiple decades. I think it’s a really appealing invitation, especially since I tend to purchase stuff online anyway.

    Wow, this seems like an awesome program. I definitely believe rewarding and helping married couples save is a big way to improve marriage rates. I signed up and am excited to see how well it goes. I was so shocked to see more than 1 or 2 stores I shop at on their list of merchants. It seems very worth while to at least give it a year’s try.
