Great news this week for current and future ING Direct users. They’re now offering paper checks with their Electric Orange accounts. While the paperless checking account takes care of 90% of our banking needs, we have had some experiences where writing a paper check would’ve been more convenient.
Why We Bank with ING Direct
Basically we signed up with ING Direct because they offered what we were looking for as couple with our banking needs.
- FDIC insured
- No monthly maintenance fee
- $0 required minimum balance
- Free online billPay service
- Conveniently located ATMs
- Earn some interest rate if possible
We also were looking for a reputation of good customer service and from what I heard ING Direct had fit the bill.
Want to take advantage of the new paper check, but curious on how to order your checkbook? Here’s how:
- Sign in to ING Direct
- Click on your Electric Orange Account
- Click ‘Account Maintenance’
- Click ‘Order New Checks’ in the Checkbook section
- When your checks arrive, sign in to ING Direct to “Activate” your checkbook
We went ahead and signed up. I think having a checkbook for our ING Direct account would be helpful in those rare cases when paper checks are needed.
