$50 Bonus from ING Direct

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

I noticed this on my Tivo which the discount could work for anyone even if you do not have a Tivo if you just type in the promo code. This promotion is for a $50 bonus ING Direct account opening.

Notice they use the words No Drama after the no Checking Fees.  Nice wording when your speaking to an audience that wants to be entertained such as Tivo.  We want drama but not with our Checking accounts like we get with the old-fashioned banks.

Electric Orange works like a Checking account but earns like a Savings with No Fees.  Keep in mind you have to get the money to your ING Direct account it does not just appear and you will not be able to drive-thru and speak with a teller.  But who can turn down Fifty bucks!

See more at or just click on your home screen on the Tivo controller and you may see the advertisement at the bottom.

WaMu Helps you Save With 5.00% APY

Friday, June 13th, 2008

If you think that high interest accounts are only for the rich then think again. Washington Mutual bank (WaMu) is helping people save money for retirement and future emergencies down the road. The new Savings account promotion will get you 1 year for 5.00% interest when you deposit as little as $1 to start up the account.

The high interest savings account works by taking money out of your WaMu checking account and depositing that money in your savings each month. The transfers would be $25 to $500 each month which are low enough that you may not even notice helping save for college or your future.

You cannot put more than $500 in the account more than once a month so those of you with large amounts of money sitting around you should consider their CD at 3.25% APY. This 5% account is mainly intended to help families or people save money who are not good at saving money and helping them do that at a higher interest rate.

To get into this great deal go into your local WaMu in Georgia, Illinois, Texas, or Washington and ask them to open a Savings for Success account. If you do not live in any of these areas I would recommend that you check out the other WaMu offers online where you can normally get the best deals on higher yields.
