Free Money: Wachovia and ING
Wachovia will give both you and I a $25 gift card when you open a new checking account. A minimum balance of $100 is required and the account must stay in good standing for 30 days.
INGDirect will give you $25 and myself $10 when you open a new INGDirect Orange Savings Account. It requires a minimum deposit of $250 which must stay in the account for 30 days. ING’s accounts offer a high interest rate and their online banking interface is simple and easy to use. Orange Savings accounts make a great place to store your Emergency Fund or to create Savings Accounts for your children.
Update: The Wachovia offer is no longer valid
