$25 offer from ING

March 22nd, 2008 at 05:38 pm

I just got an offer for a free $25 from ING if I open a savings act with them. Is it worth it to open an account and leave some money in it just long enough to get the cash bonus? (I think in this case it's 30 days...)

    I'd say yes-- but why the rush to close out the account after you re-coop the $25? I'm a very happy ING customer. Although their interest rate is lower than some, the $25 new account bonus + the $10 bonus you can earn for referring new customers more than makes up for it. Happy saving!

    Well, I already have an Emigrant Direct account that I'm pretty happy with, so I guess I don't really need another savings account. I try to keep my financial life simple and do business with as few companies as possible. That was my thinking...

    It is a 10% return on holding 250$ somewhere for 30 days; 25$ for your Tiki bar. As my grandpa would say, its better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Its a pretty long standing offer - I would read the fine print at the time you sign up just to make sure its 30 days. And you should be able to move the $ back to Emigrant electronically.

    FYI - Jeffrey (moderator at this site) used to "sell" ING referrals. He would give you a list of invitees, you'd ask ING to invite them, for every depositor that put in 250$ for 30 days, ING would credit your account 10$, and you'd split the bonus with Jeffrey.

    I would rather have $25 than a poke in the eye! I think I might go ahead and check it out. I may leave the account open a while. Who knows? Maybe I'll like it better than Emigrant!

    I say yes as well, I actually like ING and have been banking with them for about two years

    I bit the bullet and opened the account. This is the first time I've done something like this just for the reward. eek!
