The $25 sign up bonus from Etrade is back!
This is one of the easiest free money Friday offers, but whenever it shows up it doesn’t last long. Hurry, this one expires 8/13/2008!
Etrade $25 Sign Up Bonus Details
The sign up is easy, it only took me about 5 minutes to apply. Here is more information about the account and the bonus:
Interest Rate: The account currently earns 3.3%.
- Minimum Deposit: $1
- Time Needed: Bonus will be credited within 30 days.
- Sign Up: $25 Etrade sign up bonus.
- Account Type: This is for the Etrade savings account (similar to ING), not the Etrade brokerage account.
I have previously taken advantage of old Etrade sign up bonuses for myself but never got around to it for my husband. So that’s on my to-do list this weekend!
Update: Even though the promo has ended, you can still open a high-yield savings account with Etrade to get the interest, you just won’t get the bonus money.

I love your Free Money Friday series! Great info.
@ Rachel: Glad to hear you love the series… I’ll keep looking for more free money for everyone!
Even better than a high interest savings account is a high interest checking account.
I am getting 6% on my money instead of 3.5% I was getting with a high yield savings. I have to do 10 debit card transactions a month, have direct deposit setup, and do e-statements. This seems like a lot, but my employer handles the direct deposit. As for the 10 debit card transactions, there is no limit on the amount, so I just spend a few extra minutes at the pump to pump $.10 worth of gas 10 times once a month.
It’s a great deal and 6% sure helps fight inflation better than 3.5%
