Today is the last day of the special so I wanted to let you know about this since I finally got a chance to check it out. ING Bank is offering some great deals with very little investment required. For example- I started a “Money” account for my daughter with an opening deposit of $1. I can link it to my financial institution (which by the way will not provide this service to her- all they offer is just a savings account with a crummy interest rate and no atm card). She can use my banks atm free of charge and see her account online as well as use her debit card to pay for her expenses. On allowance day I can transfer funds to her- no more taking all my cash. Plus she will earn 2.5 percent which as an adult you typically need a money market for which requires a large balance plus she will get a $27 bonus on the 35th day for using her debit card.
And I opened a savings account for my son-he will get a $17 bonus. I didn’t claim the Sharebuilder deal because the minimum is $3, 500 which isn’t in my pocket at the moment. And I’m going to try for the checking account bonus is my meager mystery shopping deposits work for the direct deposit deal. I’ve heard great things about ING Bank and the bonuses they are offering certainly makes it worth checking out.
