Make 110 Dollars By Adjusting Your Banking Habits

Start banking with ING to earn an easy $50 (hint, if you naturally resist this, don’t assume you must close your normal bank account. Just try it out and see if you like banking on-line).

If you haven’t opened an ING account yet, banks like ING actually pay you for banking with them. I can’t understand what stops people from banking on-line, since as ING says, “Service fees were so last millennium.”

Right now, when you open an Account with a minimum balance of $250, ING gives you a $50 bonus!

When you sign-up use my Orange Key 17067004S1, and then I will get a $25 bonus too!

On top of this, if you open a checking accountyou can earn $50 more. Finally, if you get your paycheck automatically deposited into this account, then you get another $50.

In order to get all three bonuses I would recommend opening a savings account first and then opening the Thrive chequing account after.

Get MBNA’s SmartCash master card to earn $60 and 5% cashback on your groceries and gas for the next 6 months and 3% thereafter (you also always get 1% cashback on all other purchases).

You can get the 60$ sign-up fee if you sign up for the credit card through the excellent service Great Canadian Rebates. It does take 45 days to claim your money, but you eventually get it through Paypal or a check. I have tested this and it works.

If you sign up with this link I earn a 15% Referral Bonus on any Cash Back Rebates you earn through for the next five years.

My wife and I have been using this credit card for about a year and a half , and it rocks. There are no fees, and we get 50$ cheques in the mail every other month or so. I used to use an Air Miles credit card that charged a significant fee, but I got sick of their depreciating value. In the long run I have found the cashback card much more rewarding.

    […] Banking: If you want to get set up with a free bank, President’s Choice is our first choice, and Tangerine (previously called ING) are our top recommendations. President’s Choice offers free banking, and promises to maintain that standard forever. Tangerine offers better interest rates than PC, but they aren’t truly free (they will charge you a small fee for checks). The best solution is to combine them by using President’s Choice for your checking and cashflow, and Tangerine as your savings bank. If you want instructions on how to get going with this, go to Josh’s blog here for checking, and here for savings or the MBNA credit card. […]
