If you missed ING’s awesome Double Referral Bonus promotion (and live in Canada), the good news is that it’s back and now runs through December 31st, 2012. Basically, ING Direct is doubling their usual $25 bonus to $50 for each referral made, so once you’ve got your account setup, you can get your friends and family to sign up for a free Thrive Checking account. And when they do and deposit their first $100, you’ll get $50 for each referral. At the very least, you’ll still get $50 yourself just for setting up an ING account (you must use an Orange Key, like this one: 39694980S1). See my previous post for the complete details on how to get started.
As an added bonus, you can even score a $100 Apple Gift Card just for switching over your payroll.
