Hooray for Junk Mail

It’s not technically spam in this case. I signed up for an ING Direct savings account a while ago, and my regular readers have probably seen many entries on Consumerism Commentary about how happy I am with this bank. In fact, at the moment they offer 2.2% APY on their savings account which is quite generous compared to the rest of the world.

About once a week (although it seems less frequent) they send an email containing money savings tips. I had the option of opting in when I signed up. I like the emails because it’s good to be reminded to stay on track and not to spend exuberantly.

Here are their tips for this week. Of course it’s all common sense, but it’s good to have reminders. Be aware that their tips push their products under the guise of a partnership with ihatefinancialplanning.com, which is owned by the ING companies.
