Captial One 360 & Why I’m In-Love — 26 Comments

  1. I’m interested in opening an account with ING. Hook me up with the referral link, please!
    P.S. I love your blog!!!

    • Kelly- I just sent you the link. Thanks, I’m glad you love my blog. :-) Happy Saving!

  2. Hi Jen! If I read that correctly, ING is basically its own checking/savings account, correct? I was all smiles after reading this because I absolutely LOVE the idea of secretly putting away $20+ each month to our emergency fund. After my husband read this, he was eager to jump on the train too. Our only issue is we already have 2 bank accounts so we’re iffy about getting a third. :-/

    • Yep, Sylvia, ING is an online bank with checking and savings accounts. ING makes saving money easier, thanks to their automatic transfers. I know what you’re saying about adding another bank into the mix, it can get overwhelming at times. Right now, I’m using a credit union, 2 banks and ING, so I’m at 4 but might be dropping one bank in the next couple of months. As long as ING keeps being awesome, I’ll stay with them forever, they’re def. my favorite bank.

      ING gives you the options of opening savings accounts only, that might be easier. Then later on if you end up wanting a checking account with them you could add one—just wait until a promotion comes up because you might be able to earn 50 bucks if you already have a savings account. That’s what I did.

  3. Hi Jen!

    Thank you so much for enlightening me about ING Direct! We opened up an orange savings account with them on 9/19 and have already made 2 deposits. We absolutely love this bank, especially its APY. Have a great weekend!

    • Hey Sylvia- that’s awesome. I’m so happy for you two. I hope you end up loving them as much as I do. Have a great weekend too. :-)

    • Thanks Margaret, I’m happy you like it here. :-)

      I just sent you the ING link for the savings accounts, it’s good until Dec. 18th. Happy saving. :-)

  4. Hi, can you please send me the link for setting up an ING savings account? thanks!

  5. Can you please send me the link as well? Much appreciated! My current savings account at BoA is worthless.

    • I just sent you the link Cat, thanks. :-) I used to have accounts at BOA too, I’m so glad to be rid of them. Good luck with ING, I hope you love them as much as I do.

  6. Thanks so much for sharing. I am so bad with finances. We make enough money that we should not be struggling at all, and yet I am always looking for my next paycheck. I do not know how to save. I would appreciate the link for ING.

    • We used to be a couple of paychecks behind (and in debt), it was awful. Even if you can only start small, you’ll still get there. :-) I just sent you the link for ING’s Orange Savings account.

  7. I’m so happy to read about this! I’ve been wanting to create different savings accounts for specific things but haven’t been able to figure out how to do it in my normal bank accounts. I’d appreciate the link for ING as well! :)

  8. Hi, I love your blog already…..can you please send me the link for setting up an ING savings account? Thank you

  9. I’ve done some research into Ing and it seems like a simple and easy way to save money! I’d love if you could send me the referral link as well!

  10. It’s a little strange that a post from 2011 is showing up on your homepage and even stranger is the fact that it didn’t become Capitol One 360 until April of this year. It was ING Direct in 2011.

    Anyhow, I am a huge fan of Capitol One 360. My dad called me today and asked if he could borrow $40 because he got an overdraft fee at his traditional bank. Before I gave him the money, I lectured him on how awesome CO360 is and a how they don’t charge overdraft fees. 😉
