An Instant 10% Return from ING Direct

Sitting here working on my finances today, I paid a visit to my ING Direct account to see what was there, update some automatic transfers, etc. So, this seems as good a time as any to talk about your money too.

ING Direct, through their online savings account, is currently paying an APR of 4.25% on all deposits. Compare this to the typical Wells Fargo savings or money market account that is paying less than 1%, unless you happen to have tens of thousands of dollars with them. No contest.

To sweeten the deal, if you sign up for an account as a referral and deposit an initial $250 with ING Direct, they'll drop an additional $25 into your account. That's an immediate 10% return on your investment just for giving your current bank the finger.

Now, of course there's something in this for me... for every person that joins, up to 25 people, I get $10. So, not only do you get an instant 10% return on your investment, you get two-and-a-half times what I get.

See, I care about you. Yes, you.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it.

If you're game, this link to ING Direct will let you open an account.

(If that link no longer works, it means someone took me up on the offer... let me know and I can post a new one... and then once your account is open, you can pimp it on your own blog just like I'm doing - hey neat!)
