ING Direct: Open Thrive Account + Transfer Payroll = Get $100

If someone just handed me $100 I would dance for joy. ING Direct wants to hand you $100 just for opening a no-fee Thrive Account and transferring your payroll to it.

Unlike ‘other banks’ we shall not mention *coughalltheotherscough*, ING Direct offers no-fee bank accounts that actually try to save you money. This Thrive chequing account is one of the rare chequing accounts that actually pays you interest! With no fees and getting interest on your money it is a fabulous account for those interested in saving money.

The rules are pretty simple.

  • Be a new to ING Direct customer
  • Sign up for the Thrive account
  • Transfer your payroll to that Thrive account by the 30th of September
  • They will give you $100 within 30 days of your payroll being deposited

Simple. Free $100 and a better chequing account. Life is beautiful.

ING Direct: Deposit $100, Get $50 Bonus

If you are new to ING Direct and open up a new savings account depositing $100, you will get a $50 bonus!

ING Direct Canada often runs promotions like this, and it is a great way to start a new year and start saving money. Here is how to get your free $50:

  • Be a new customer
  • Complete the secure online form to open an Investment Savings Account (regular, RSP or TFSA)
  • Write a cheque for $100 or more and mail it to ING Direct

“I want to save more money” is one of the top New Year’s resolutions: right up there around wanting to lose weight. With ING Direct you can not only save your own money – but add $50 of their money to your own to help your little stash grow quicker. I think this is a pretty good deal for our frugal Moosers!

ING Direct: Open Thrive Account + Transfer Payroll to Get $100 Apple GC

INGDirect has a new promotion where if you open an ING Thrive Chequing account and transfer your payroll to it, you will get a $100 Apple Giftcard.

Now, this ALSO is for existing customers of ING Direct who have a Thrive account. If you have a Thrive account but have not transfered your payroll to your thrive account you can transfer your payroll and get the $100 GC.

A few other things you need to know:

  • You must have $100 in your Thrive account to qualify
  • You must transfer your payroll to the account

The Thrive chequing account pays interest, one of the few chequing accounts that do.

For all other rules, and further details see the link above.

ING Direct: Double Bonus for Referring a Friend

ING Direct: Double Bonus for Referring a Friend

ING Direct has a great little bonus for referring a friend to ING. When a friend uses your Orange Key to open an account with $100 or more in it, instead of the usual $25 each, you’ll both get $50.

If you are already with ING Direct and are happy with them, you might want to think about inviting a friend. If you are someone looking for a new bank – ask your friends for an Orange Key and you can each earn $50.

The fine print:

Bonus deposits will be made into your Investment Savings Account, unless you have a THRiVE Chequing Account, then you’ll receive your bonus there. If you don’t already have either Account, we’ll open an Investment Savings Account for you to make the deposit automatically. $50 will be paid out to you and your friend provided that your friend is a new Client to ING DIRECT and has opened an Account with at least $100 or more by August 31, 2012.

I have never used ING Direct, but I have heard good things about them. Any of our Moosers currently use them? If so we would love to hear from you.
