Here are a couple of bonus offers I received last week. Feel free to use it if you can.
If you want to open an ING Direct Orange Savings account, I have a reference code for $25 bonus from the March issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. ING Direct lowered its interest rate again last week following the Fed’s 0.50% reduction. Currently, the Orange Savings account pays 3.40% APY. If you open an account before April 30, 2008 and use reference code KP339/Z836TZBM, ING Direct will give you a $25 bonus.
Another similar offer is from Citibank which will give $25 bonus for opening a Ultimate Money account before February 29, 2008. Right now, the Ultimate Money account has a yield of 4.25% APY and it can also help you earn ThankYou Points. However, the Ultimate Money account has to be opened together with their EZ Checking account to avoid monthly fees. To open an account and get $25 bonus, use this link (code CYJW) and be sure to check out what exactly are offered and required.
Finally, if you are a Costco member and thinking of getting a ShareBuilder account, now may be the time to get it and receive some bonus money. In the February issue of Costco Connection magazine, there’s an ad says Costco members open a ShareBuilder account before March 31, 2008 can receive $70 (Goldstar and business members) or $90 (Executive members) when their membership is verified and a stock is purchased. I opened my ShareBuilder account in this way in 2006, but closed it last year because of the high cost of investing with them.
