I really like telling people about companies that are giving away free money. It just doesn't get much better than that.
So, here is another one. If you haven't already heard of ING, you haven't been paying attention. Well, they are offering an incentive for new accounts. If you sign up through a referral, you get $25 added to your account for FREE!! The only requirement is a minimum balance of $250.
I have been using INGDirect for about 3 months now and I have been very pleased. The biggest selling point for having an account through them is the interest rate. If you have a savings account through a traditional bank, your interest rate is probably somewhere around 0.20%. Even most CD's out there have a rate around 2.95%. Well, with ING, your regular savings account has an interest rate of 3%!!
I have already noticed a tremendous difference from those $.30 amounts of interest a month to $5 of interest a month.
This is a company I have no problem recommending. So, if you would like $25 for free (and, yes, I would receive a $10 bonus), please e-mail me (email@example.com) and I will send you the referral link.
To check out the company, go to INGDirect.
