ING Direct Referral Waiting List Now Open! (Update: List is Full)

This article was written by in Banking. 126 comments.

Once again, I’ve refreshed the list of ING Direct $25 referral links. By using one of these links, a new customer can receive a $25 bonus for opening a new savings or checking account if the initial deposit is $250 or more. As these are “referral” bonuses, the person who provided the link will receive $10 from ING Direct in return for referring a new customer. I no longer have my own referral links to share, so I’ve opened Consumerism Commentary to serve as a conduit between current customers who have referral links and new customers looking for a $25 bonus. I earn nothing from this arrangement; in fact, it takes a significant amount of my time to set up the waiting list, contact Consumerism Commentary readers with instructions for sharing their links, monitoring the list of published links, and adding new ones as the posted ones expire.

I have reached the bottom of the current waiting list, so I am now opening the list again to current ING Direct customers. If you’re a current customer and you’d like to earn referral fees by posting your links on Consumerism Commentary, please leave a comment here using the email address on record with ING Direct. Make sure the email address you enter in the appropriate field is the same email address that ING Direct has linked to your account. This will help me match up your referral links with the name I put on the waiting list. No one else will see your email address and you can use an alias in the name field if you’d rather be anonymous on this blog.

If you’ve already posted links on Consumerism Commentary and you have more remaining to share, feel free to join the waiting list again. Keep in mind that I will contact you with instructions when it is your turn to provide links, and you must follow the instructions precisely. Recently, new customers have been using about ten links referral links per week. I’m looking to have 100 names on the waiting list. The only way to be added to the waiting list is to leave a comment on this post. Once the list reaches 100 names, I will not accept more names until further notice.

Update: The waiting list is once again full.

Sorry about that, Sarah! Next time I’ll announce it at a more neutral time. Generally, I post on east coast time to allow the largest number people to see articles when it’s good for them. It does, however, make a good case for signing up to receive articles via RSS. :-)
