Of all the account I have made earned $275.00 in bonus money and $50.00 from referrals. What I like about opening accounts, is that I have separate places to save for different goals my husband and I are reaching towards and I get to try out the service at different banks. We now have an account just for “Christmas Gifts” and another specifically for “Homeschool Expenses”.
The best part is that each bank gave us FREE money to save for things we were already saving for anyway.
One of my favorite online banks and easiest to open is the ING Savings Account. I use my ING Savings account to deposit my Emergency Fund savings. I like it because it’ not as accessible as my primary savings account, but it’s easy enough to access in times of an emergency.
If you are anything like me…you take one look at these offers and skip past them. However; I gave it a try and I was paid $25 immediately. I have had my ING account for a year now and they serve as a nesting place for my Emergency Fund.
When you open an account with an initial deposit of $250 or more your account will be credited with $25 and mine will be credited with $10 from ING Direct.
The $250 deposit does not need to remain in the account in order for you to get your bonus. Once open an account you will be able to refer people and earn bonuses as well.
My account was credited with the $25 before my initial $250 deposit was even transferred from my brick and mortar bank.
~No Minimum Balances
~No need to change banks, accounts can be linked
~Account can be opened online in less than 5 minutes
The interest rates at ING Direct are much better than my brick and mortar bank. As of this writing (effective 09/09/2009) ING Orange Savings account pay a variable 1.30% Annual Percentage Yield.
Investigate ING Direct and if you find that you’d like to earn and instant 10% on your investment leave me a comment with your email address and I will send you a referral code.
I only have 5 referral codes left.
These referral codes can only be used once and expire 30 days after being emailed. Please read the terms/conditions so you know the stipulations. You can close the account at anytime without forfeiting the $25 bonus.
