I got an email yesterday that my favorite bank, Capital One 360 (formerly ING Direct), is giving out some awesome bonuses. $176.00 worth of bonuses, pretty nice!
You only have 3 days to open the accounts and get the bonuses, Monday July 1st to Wednesday July 3rd. So if you’re interested in earning some free money, you gotta hurry.
I’ve been banking with them since 2007 and have loved every minute of it. I refer everybody to them: friends, family, readers, strangers I eavesdrop on talking about banking or finance. I’m quite the fan. Even my daughter has an account with them.
For more information about Capital One 360, you can check out some of the posts I’ve written about them:

How Can You Earn $176.00?
Step 1: Getting Your $100.00 bonus
Click on the image above and go sign up for a fee-free checking account between July 1st and July 3rd. It should only take a few minutes and you’ll be on your way to earning a $100.00 bonus for opening the new checking account.
*This has to be your 1st checking account with them to qualify.
Within 45 days, you need to make a total of 5 purchases using your 360 checking debit card (either PIN or signature based), make 5 CheckMate deposits or any combo of the two.
On Day 50, your $100.00 bonus will automatically be deposited to your account.
*What I do in these minimum number of purchases scenarios, is to use the card for necessary or inexpensive things. Like a coffee, gas, grabbing milk on the way home and whatnot. That way it gets done quickly without having to spend a lot of money.
Next: How to get your $76.00 bonus
After opening the above checking account, or if you already have one, but don’t have a Capital One 360 Savings account.
Click on the image below and open a savings account.
This one is a bit trickier. While it only takes like two minutes to open the account, they’re wanting a minimum deposit of $500.00 to be eligible to earn the $76.00 bonus. That’s just over a 15% instant earn on your money, if you have that kind of cash sitting around.
If you have the money sitting in a regular savings account at a local bank, then you’ll more than likely earn much more interest with Capital One 360’s savings account. Plus you’ll get the $76.00 bonus, which starts earning interest the first day…even though you have to wait 30 days to withdraw it.
*This has to be your 1st savings account with them to qualify.
