ING DIRECT $50 Business Saving Account Bonus

Posted by Jorja Marion On May - 22 - 2018

ING DIRECT USA Business Savings Account. No fees, no service charges.There is currently a $50 bonus available for opening this account. To learn more, visit ingdirect.com/bsa or call 1-800-ING-DIRECT to talk to a business representative. Be sure to use Reference Code BSA437 by May 31, 2012 to get your $50 bonus. Bonus is deposited at time of new account opening, and is available for withdrawal after 30 days. Bonus is available only for new Business Account Customers.

I decided to pass on this bonus since they wanted four different forms faxed to them to open the account. Im not sure why they make it much more difficult to open a business account than a personal account. If you are planning on opening an account anyway though it may be worth $50.

If you dont have a business or are not interested in opening a business account you might consider the Electric Orange checking account.
