I was getting ready to send an ING Direct referral to a coworker when I discovered that the online bank changed the rules. Now, in order for a new customer to receive the $25 bonus, he or she must deposit $250 at the onset. This certainly changes the game for some.
ING Direct is offering 3.4% APY currently (more rates here) but with the extra $25 bonus, you can still beat some of the other banks’ offerings. I only have
four three one referral left, so if you plan on depositing more than $250, feel free to request a referral email from me by notifying me via email.
By the way, for each successful referral who obtains the $25 bonus, I get $10 from the bank.
