Opening a bank account probably wasn’t on your list of things to do before the holiday weekend but if you don’t have an account with ING Direct and have thought before about opening one then today would be a good day.

You’ve probably read about Electric Orange checking promotions and ShareBuilder promotions in the past but the ones for today both come with a pretty big bonus.

Electric Orange Checking Promotion

If you open a new Electric Orange checking account today you can earn a bonus of $76, the highest ING promotion that I can remember.

You have to make a total of 7 purchases using your Electric Orange Card (signature or PIN-based) or Person2Person Payments (or any combination of the two) within 45 days of account opening to qualify for the bonus.

Unfortunately for me the bonus is only for first time Electric Orange customers so I don’t qualify.  If you don’t have an Electric Orange account and open one today and use your card as explained above, ING will deposit the $76 bonus into your account.

You don’t need any special promotion code, just open the account today to get the bonus.

ShareBuilder Promotion

The ShareBuilder promotion is also $76 if you open a new account today.  Like the Orange checking offer, the ShareBuilder bonus is only open to new customers.

The promotion is for Individual, Joint, and Custodial accounts but doesn’t apply for IRA or Education Savings Accounts.  Your $76 credit will be deposited into your ShareBuildr account 4-6 weeks after you make the first trade in your account.  You’ll need to make your first purchase by the end of the year to qualify for the bonus.

Like the Organe Checking offer, there is no special promotion code, just open the account today to get the bonus.
