ING Direct CD Rollover Bonus

I recently read that ING Direct was offering an 18-month Certificate of Deposit with a 4.50% APY (courtesy of Bank Deals) so I logged into my account to see how my CDs were configured. I have our emergency fund fully laddered into CDs  at ING Direct so I knew that the 18-month CD was going to be outside the range, but I was curious how things were anyway.

You can see the link in the red box above, if you click on the link the page that opens is one that lists all their current CD rates  with a 0.10% “bonus.” To take advantage of the bonus, you’ll have to go back to your CD, click Account Maintenance, and change your account maturity option back to renew into a different term.
Lesson of the day? Always turn off automatic renewal so that ING can offer you a 0.10% bonus.
Finally, the eagle eyes in the crowd may notice two things from that screenshot:
