    Ultimately, I did decide to open an ING Bank account. It seemed like a no-brainer to me.

    Through the site saveing.ca, I received the bonus $25 to open my account. The $25 bonus posted to my account right away (NOTE: this $25 is not available for withdrawal for 30 days though — if that is important to you). The initial transfer from my brick and mortar bank to my new ING Bank account was received within 48 hours.

    So now I am all set to start earning the 1.05% interest rate. I plan on using my new ING Bank account as my emergency fund… those funds that won’t be touched unless I absolutely, positively need to. It will be nice for my savings to earn a higher interest rate vs. previously languishing in the < 1% range.

    For a Christian site I am AMAZED you don’t mention the ethical reasons for changing banks! Get your accounts & savings out of Bank Of America, Citi, Wells Fargo, Chase, the banks that pay astronomical bonuses, traded in subprime loans and finance the arms industry. The big Wall Street banks which lost their gambles with our money and took a $700 billion bailout from the taxpayer. Get into credit unions and local banks.

      …and lure teens into debt with the “you don’t need income and parent signature” credit card offers at colleges. I bank with credit unions and have an ing account that is on ‘watch’ to see how Capital One handles it now that they are taking over ing.
