Here's a nice bonus offer from ING Direct. When you open a new THRIVE free chequing account and switch your payroll over to it, they'll give you $100!
This offer is open to new THRIVE accountholders only, unfortunately existing or previous accountholders will not be able to take advantage of this bonus (even if they have not previously had payroll deposits made to their THRIVE accounts).
To open a THRIVE account, just fill out the online form and then mail a cheque of $100 or more to ING. That cheque will be used to link your chequing account to your new ING account for making future transactions. Once this is completed, arrange for your payroll deposits to be made to your THRIVE account by no later than September 30 and ING Direct will deposit $100 into your account within 30 days of your first payroll deposit.
