Anyone have an ING Direct savings account?
 
I'm thinking about setting one up. It has a 3% interest rate, and I get 25 bucks for signing up.

Anyone have any experience with them?

I love it. Started one in January.

highly recommend it.. been with them for 4+ years and never had a problem

I have a 401k and money purchase plan through work with ING and have been very pleased thus far. Great website, easy to use. I actually re-allocated funds all by myself! Charles Schwab look out! ;)

I've had one for years and experienced no issues. Apparently a competitor, Emigrant Direct, is offering 3.25% interest. I didn't like their interface nearly as much, though, so I stuck with ING.

If you want to open an ING account, you can get a $50 bonus. Search Fatwallet for details.

Yes.

If you do a search, there should be some great threads about ING.

I've been with them for 2-3 years (?), and they are great.

Just opened an account with EmigrantDirect about a week ago. Haven't even seen the website yet though.

I've been thinking about it for awhile, and the $50 bonus was enough to get me to take the plunge.

Thanks for the info!

I'm with the majority regarding ING. Been with them for a few years now and have had no problems whatsoever. Thinking of starting up an ED account as well.

Seantn 05-10-05 10:20 AM

I can't find the info on the 50 dollar bonus. I was told that if I sign up, I get 25 bucks (my friend told me this). Does everyone get a 50 dollar bonus? I looked on Fatwallet (my first time using that site), but didn't find anything.

Another vote for ING Direct. I love the service, interest rate is okay, I am actually inclined to save money. Easy to use and everything.
If you can, get someone to refer you, so they can get $10 by you signing up.
I'll refer you! Email me :)

Go for it. The 3% on their money market account beats my credit union's by 2.5%. You don't get checks with this account. You have to transfer electronically to and from your checking account. I've never had a problem transferring money within a business day or two in the 3+ years I've had the account.

I use it, and it's great :up:

marty888 05-10-05 11:38 AM

Another :up: for ING !

If you sign up as a referral of an existing account holder, you get $25 and they get $10. If you sign up as part of the Taxcut/Microsoft Money promotion, you get $50.

edytwinky 05-10-05 01:00 PM

I've used it. Works great.

fine print says: "Limit one bonus per order number"

im assuming that order number listed above has already been used.

Signed up on Tuesday and got my $50 credit today. Now I just have to convice the wife that it's a legitamate place to have a savings account. I'm sick of Bank of America saying I'm doing too many transfers between my checking and savings account.

girlnextdoor 05-12-05 02:49 PM

We have several accounts with them. Great to deal with - easy customer support when a phone call is necessary.

criptik28 05-12-05 03:12 PM

Got one back in February...rate has gone up from 2.4% to 3% since then. :up:

Quick question for anybody with Emigrant -- have you withdrawn any money from the account? I know I can deposit money with no problems, but what is the withdrawl procedure like?

Wade Kainer 08-22-05 08:01 PM

I've had no problems transferring money into and out of both ING and Emigrant Direct...transfers out take a day or two to show up in my checking account from either one.

ING will do this too. Limit is 6 or so per month (according to a guy on FW that was transfering that often).
