It has been awhile, but I now have a new set of $25 bonus referral links available for new customers of the ING Direct online savings account. ING Direct is currently, as of June 16, 2009, offering an interest rate yielding 1.5% APY on this savings account.
Here is how this works. If you open an account using one of the referral links available here and deposit at least $250, you will receive a $25 bonus, and the bonus is considered interest. Although ING Direct’s interest rate is not the highest among high-yield savings accounts, depending on how much you deposit you could earn more with this bonus and ING’s interest than you would with just interest from another bank.
The referral links posted on Consumerism Commentary have been provided solely by other readers. When you earn $25, the reader who donated the link will receive a $10 referral fee. After you sign up, you will receive your own referral links to share. Everybody wins! I have a long waiting list of readers who are waiting to have their links posted. The waiting list is closed at the moment, but when I need more links I will post an announcement and allow people with new referral links to be added to the waiting list again.
