ING Direct To Return to 3.80%

As an affiliate, ING Direct sends me periodic emails regarding the promotions they’ll be running and with the winding down of their 4.75% Winter Save Up event they’ve notified us that they’ll be returning to the pre-promotion rate of 3.80%. So my prediction that ING would lower to around 4.25% to remain competitive was too ambitious.

Update: It appears that the new rate will be 4.0% and not 3.8%. My apologies for the mistake, perhaps their affiliate program needs a little work… today they sent me another email that said the Orange Savings Account would go to 4.0%.

If you’re looking to get a quick $25, hit up this $25 ING referral page. You’ll get $25 for depositing $250 and they get $10.
