The Benefits of having an ING Direct (now Tangerine) Account

Dear friends & followers,

As Christmas and other holidays are fast approaching, I would like to give you another little gift: a $50 bonus when you open a new ING bank account!

I’ve been saving with ING Direct since June 2012. Since then, I’ve lived financially stress-free. Why?

  1. NO bank fees to worry about
  2. I get to earn interest every month!
  3. NO minimum balance (some banks require a min. balance or they’ll charge you!)

I highly recommend opening an ING account, especially if you’re:

  • a student
  • going abroad (temporarily) OR studying/working abroad in Canada
  • under 30
  • unemployed
  • starting a new job
  • temping

If you’re not Canadian, or in Canada, or going to Canada, I’m sure there are other special offers in your country! 🙂

Until 31 December 2012, if you open a new ING account – be it THRIVE chequing , TFSA (savings), or similar – with an initial balance of $100 CAD, you will be given a $50 bonus (usually it’s $25)! Simply enroll and enter this Orange Key39200510S1. You’ll even be able to order your first 50 cheques for FREE! Once you have an account, you’ll get your individual Orange Key so that you can refer your friends too, thanks to the Refer A Friend programme!

What’s there to lose? 😉

UPDATE (2014): ING Direct is now Tangerine. You will now need to deposit at least C$250 before you can get your $25 bonus. Until 31 July 2014, you can get a $50 bonus if you sign up! Consider entering my Orange Key  39200510S1 so that we each get a bonus! 🙂 Thank you!
