Now that we’ve all gotten our ING $25 Bonus, it’s time to cash in for $50 more!
Heather A. sent me an email about a great deal she found by signing up for a new Electric Orange checking account at ING Direct.
Here is how to get your $50 bonus:
When Heather A. heard about the promotion, she was told it ended on Oct. 31. However, she opened an account on Nov. 6. I signed up on Tuesday, just to make sure the code still worked, and it did, so I’m not sure on the new expiration date. Use it while you can!
Here’s some more info about the account that you might want to know:
Initial Deposit Requirement: None. I opened my account with 25 cents!
What’s a signature-based purchase? Since this was part of the requirements, I needed to know! Here’s the ING answer from their terms and conditions:
It’s a Card purchase made without using your Personal Identification Number(PIN) when paying. A majority of transactions don’t involve a PIN and are considered signature-based purchases.
Examples of signature-based transactions include:
- Any purchases that require your signature(choosing ‘Credit’ instead of ‘Debit’) when checking out.
- Internet, phone or mail order purchases.
- Using your Card for automatic bill payments like your cell phone, cable or utilities.
Thanks to Heather A. for pointing out the Free Money for all of us to enjoy!
