I mentioned earlier this month that my husband opened a Roth IRA with ING Direct with $1000 to take advantage of the deal that would get him an additional $76. And ING Direct, being wonderful has already deposited the extra $76. In just thirteen days, when most banks take three to four months for any bonus money.
This makes me happy, yet sad because ING Direct has been bought by Capital One and these wonderful deals are likely to be long gone very soon. I hope everyone takes advantage of the referral deal. If you do not know about the referral deal, it goes like this: you ask someone with an ING account to refer you, you open a savings account with $250 and then leave it there for 3 months and get $25 cash. Ten percent return without any risk, who could hate that?
