This post shamelessly includes an affiliate link. But only because i) I use ING Direct for my emergency fund to get 3.00% p.a. interest on their savings account, and ii) we both get free money out of it.
Read on if you’re interested in opening an account…if not, give this post a miss.
If you’re an Aussie and you use this link to sign up, then deposit $1,000AUD to your account (or mine, I won’t complain) within a calendar month we qualify for a cash reward.
What I like about ING Direct:
- As far as I can tell, they have the highest variable interest rate on a savings account of any Australian Bank
- There are no account keeping fees
- It’s all electronic (I think there is a branch in Sydney)
What’s not to like:
- They don’t have many branches (they may have none) so you can only make deposits electronically – you can still use their standard VISA debit card to access your money as per normal.
That’s it for this post. If you use the link, thanks for supporting this blog!
