If you’ve been following my Grocery Cash Challenge then you know we use an ING Direct account to save the extra money we dont spend each week. We have several of our accounts with them and we’ve made money opening each and every one. One of the things that I love with them is that there are no fees involved with having mychecking account. NONE!! There are also no account minimums so whether I have $3,000 in my checking or $3.00, I’m good. Both of these are huge for me. The last reason that we stay with them is because of the free atm’s. My old bank charged me $3.00 every time I used an atm that wasn’t theirs (and there weren’t many that were theirs) so each year I was racking up hundreds in atm fees alone. With ING, there are over 35,000 atms nationwide that I can use for free.
Well now, ING wants to give you money to open an account with them. They want you to try the same checking account that I use and they are willing to give you $50 for doing so!!
Sign up for the ING Electric Orange Checking Account and ING will give you $50.00 free! Totally free money. We added our $50 to savings fund. We are STILL at odds on what we want to do with this extra money each month we have left over from our grocery budget but until we decide have it saved away at ING!
Here’s how it works:
Sign up for your ING Electric Orange Checking Account. You won’t need much money to open it, I opened mine with $5.00 we had left over from the first month of the Cash Grocery Challenge.
Make 3 debit card purchases or Person 2 Person payments within 45 days of opening the account.
Your $50.00 opening bonus will be deposited on Day 50.
I opened my account over the 4th of July weekend when they were offering a $76.00 bonus (you’ll only get $50.00, because the $76 was a special promo) but you can see in the screenshot below that it deposited today just like it was supposed to!
I love how I can connect all of our accounts to each other so I only have to view one account when I’m logged in to get our whole financial picture. I can view our checking, savings and both the kids savings accounts all at once. Plus the customer service is amazing.
I hope that you’ll take advantage of this great offer and I know that you’ll be as pleased with ING as I am.
