Here’s a weekend update on ING DIRECT’s Financial Independence Days Sale, a promotional event where the bank is offering up to $152 for new checking account customers. Here are the details, and how to make sure you get the bonus before the promotion ends on July 3rd at 11:59 p.m. ET:
1) Go here and click on the promotional ad Outlaw is featuring on its homepage. New customers applying for an ING DIRECT Electric Orange account between now and the cut-off date will receive “a $76 bonus and $76 more for making the switch. That’s $152 just for trying checking the way it’s supposed to be: Free.”
ING DIRECT’s checking account has no overdraft fees, no monthly fees, and provides fee-free access to 35,000+ ATMs. It also includes a free MasterCard debit card for accessing your account’s balance.
2) Make the qualifying transactions to ensure you receive both parts of the bonus.
The Financial Independence Days Sale is an interesting way for the bank to pre-empt the 4th of July marketing promotions out there. It is similar to their annual Black Friday deal, where they also offer higher-than-normal account bonuses to new customers.
I’ve been an ING DIRECT customer since 2007 and recommend the bank to anyone looking to move their business away from a “fee-happy” brick and mortar financial institution.
