Why I opened a savings account with ING Direct internet banking

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while. A few months ago, I signed up for an Orange Savings account through ING Direct. It is an internet-only bank account with a (relatively) high interest rate, especially given the fact that there’s no minimum balance. Read more about ING here.

I’ve closed my previous savings account because the interest rate wasn’t worth peanuts, and you had to maintain a minimum balance that was too high for me at that small of an interest rate. These problems are not an issue with ING Direct.  It’s exciting to see my balance actually accumulate interest (and more than a few pennies at a time, as in my previous savings account)!

If you’d like to try ING Direct’s Orange Savings account or their Electric Orange checking account, click on any of the links below under the appropriate heading. If there’s no active link, contact me and I’ll put some more up. You will get $25 free if you open an account with $250 or more and I will get $10 for the referral. If you do choose to open an account, I thank you in advance for using my referral links (and for reading my blog! 🙂 ).

Anyone who has experience with any of ING’s services is welcome to comment!
