ING Direct Black Friday 2011 Deals

I'm in Virginia visiting family, so today's tip is brief. During Black Friday weekend ING Direct usually has specials on new bank accounts and this was no different. I want to share an email I received. Hopefully you can get a better bank account and earn a bit of a bonus.
Our personal favorite is ING Direct which we currently use for most of our banking needs. We recommend ING Direct for several reasons and have been happy customers for years. If you want to open a checking account with them now is a good time as they've doubled their usual bonus.
They also have over 35,000 in their free ATM network which makes it incredibly convenient to access our money.
Now that they're offering paper checks with their Electric Orange accounts it's become the best checking account that we have – handling all our needs and offering bonuses.

I’ve checked out ING Direct several times but never opened an account. I’m a bit uneasy using an online bank as I’ve banked with local banks for 40 years. Based on your glowing recommendation I will head to their site and take a serious look.

Listing bonus $60
Foreign Currency Fee Litigation Settlement
PG& E: $30
‘Service Guarantee Program’ rebate
My power went out at 9:30 am a couple weeks ago and didn’t come back on until 4:30 pm. I contacted PG&E and they told me they sent a letter about a ‘planned outage’. I told them I hadn’t received any letter and they told me they’d check into the issue. Apparently there was some mix up and I was not on the ‘notify list’. Their solution to customer satisfaction is this credit to my account for $30.
ADMIN/ACCOUNTING INCOME: $206
I’m now ahead of my goal by $472! Weekly tracking has made such a difference in my awareness. My husband and I are now doing daily ‘financial check-ins’, 5 minute updates about our income and projections for the week/day. We keep it positive and light and do weekly ‘financial meetings’ to get down to the nitty-gritty.
