If you do not already have an account at ING Direct and you’re interested in opening up a new savings account or checking account at this online bank, you can earn a $25 bonus just by using one of these referral links. If you transfer more than $250 as your initial deposit into your new account, you will receive $25 in the form of bonus interest.
At the same time, the Consumerism Commentary reader who provided the referral link will earn $10. I’ve previously used all of my available links, so I’ve opened this up to the public. Once your account is established, ING Direct will grant you referral links to share with your friends. It’s kind of a pyramid scheme, but it’s good. When you have links to share, watch here. I’ll be opening a new waiting list soon for readers who would like to earn money by posting their links.
Update: The waiting list is now open. If you’d like to share your own ING Direct referral links, read this information. I’m now looking for Consumerism Commentary readers to share links by adding their names to the waiting list.
