* Futures: Dow up 0.28%, S&P up 0.15%, Nasdaq dips 0.22%

Aug 28 (Reuters) - The S&P 500 futures rose for a seventh straight day on Friday as the prospect of super low interest rates for a prolonged period spurred risk appetite, with focus shifting to monthly personal consumption data for signs of an economic rebound.

The Federal Reserve on Thursday unveiled a plan to support inflation and restore the economy to full employment, adding to optimism from medical progress to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. In the previous session, the Dow briefly turned positive on the year, while the S&P 500 closed at a record level even as the U.S. economy struggles to recover from the biggest downturn since the Great Depression.

Data due at 8:30 a.m. ET is likely to show personal consumption ticked up in July even as income fell.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are on track for their fifth consecutive week of gains, but the Dow is still about 3.6% from its February all-time high.

In further proof that technology companies are booming in the pandemic, business software provider Workday Inc jumped 11.2% in premarket trading after raising its annual subscription forecast.

Dell Technologies Inc gained 4.5% after reporting quarterly profit that beat expectations as remote working and online learning boosted demand for its notebooks and software products.

At 6:20 a.m. ET, Dow e-minis were up 80 points, or 0.28%. S&P 500 e-minis were up 5.25 points, or 0.15% and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were down 26.25 points, or 0.22%.

Cosmetics retailer Ulta Beauty Inc jumped 15.1% after posting quarterly profit ahead of market expectations. (Reporting by Medha Singh in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
