Reminder: ING Direct: $50 Bonus For New Accounts still going!

Right now if you sign up for an Electric Orange checking account you can earn $50! We did this several years ago when they ran the promotion – you can’t beat free money! Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Sign up for a FREE checking account through this link (no minimum balance required and NO fees!)
  2. Open Electric Orange and make a total of 3 Card purchases or Person2Person Payments (or any combo of the two) within 45 days of account opening. What I recommend is make a couple cheap purchases. I think we bought 3 packs of gum (3 separate transactions). 
  3. Your $50 bonus will automatically be deposited into your account on day 50. That’s a good rate for less than an hours work!

If you like the account, you can continue to use it after the fact. The good thing is, you don’t have to. Once you get your $50 you can pull it out (or you can leave it in and use it).

    I just signed up … can’t wait for my $50. I just got $100 free from Capital One by signing up for their card and charging $500 within 3 billing cycles. Free money … got it love it!

    That’s awesome! My husband and I had just decided to switch over to ING, so this is just another bonus!

    In response to Tereza Dvoral, this $50 will count as interest and be reported to the irs so you would receive a 1099-INT next year for this account. At least that’s how it works at the bank I work at.
