ING Direct's $83 Electric Orange Checking Account Promotion

Monday, December 20, 2010 - 6:46 AMING DIRECT - Details
For those who don't have an ING Direct Electric Orange account and missed ING Direct's Black Friday promo, you might be interested in this EO promo.

Promo page @

From the promo page:

1. Click on 'Apply Now.' Be sure to enter your Reference Code during the account opening process.

2. Earn $50: Make 3 Card purchases and/or Person2Person Payments within 45 days of account opening and your bonus will be paid on day 50.

3. Earn $33 More: Set up Direct Deposit and have two Direct Deposits of at least $250 post to your Electric Orange by March 31st. Your $33 will be paid on April 8th.

A reference code of DECEM579 was posted by SD member atari in this SD thread. I haven't checked if there are any limitations with this code so you may want to call ING Direct before applying to ensure you can qualify.

Besides the Black Friday or Independence Day promos, a $50 bonus was the maximum bonus one could earn with an EO promo. This $33 additional bonus is new. I don't know if the direct deposit has to be from payroll or if it can be any ACH.
