ING Direct Savings Acct -- $25 to open account
ING Direct is still running a special promotion for people who open new "Orange" savings accounts. When you open an account using the referral link I email to you, you will get $25 added to your account! (I get $10 for every account opened this way, for up to 25 people--you get a bonus and a great savings account).
The $25 is "on hold" for the first 30 days. After that, it's yours to do with as you want!
The Orange Savings account currently earns 2.25% APY, which is a tremendous deal. ING is a respected company that has a long history in financial products and life insurance, so it isn't some fly-by-night dot-bomb. Adding money to your savings account is as easy as setting up an electronic transfer from another checking account (this is free and easy to do) or by sending a deposit directly to them through the mail (also, very reliable).
You can get your money out of the account fairly easily, but then this is a savings account, so you really shouldn't want to take money out too often...
Just email me at and indicate that you want the ING Referral:
