Re: Anyone wanna get the ING bonus?
Note that you have to exercise the HELOC before you get the referral money. We did that by making a $100 withdrawal from the heloc, which was then comped by ING.
In fact, here's what we did with ING:
- I opened an account using the microsoft money referral...which IIRC was $50 for anyone opening an account who has microsoft money. All you need is a serial number from money. Since serial numbers arent particularly hard to find, and Money can often be bought for free after rebates, this isnt too tough. I just happened to have a copy, never used.
- I referred her for a MM and HELOC account. She opened both, she got $100 and $25, I got $25 and $10.
In total, we got $210 for filling in a couple of web forms and half an hour of HELOC paperwork.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
