lol I think you clicked the box by accident that says that you're in trouble with the IRS so they have to withhold 28%.

hkguyatus said: Hello, did anyone try to use the code and recieve any confrimation about the $50 bonus? I tried to open an account online through http://www.ingdirect.com/nyt/ After I entered the code: NY3 and clicked continue, I received this message:

"We're sorry, but the referral link within the email you received has expired and is no longer valid. We recommend that you contact the sender and ask them to re-send the referral email. Or click 'Continue' to proceed with the application process without the account opening bonus. "

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you


make sure you do not have space before the code . It didn't work for me but when I remove space, it accepted the code.

Did the $50 bonus show up before or after the trial deposits?

Update: I called ING and they manually added the bonus.

How quick is their ACH feature? I'm looking for something to move my FNBO funds.

"Congratulations! Your Orange Savings Account is open and your bonus will be credited"

but when I login, I saw 0 banlance. no $50 bouns. am I unlucky?

I got the same message, so you're not alone. Bonus will be credited, but not showing up yet.

*crosses fingers

UPDATE: My $50 bonus arrived this morning. Yay!

Opening this account will result in a soft pull according to this FW thread.. No hard pull for opening Orange Savings account. ymmv.

Sidenote: I had one of these accounts a while back and tried to use it to scoop up even more scratch by way of linking all manner of accounts and collecting the small verification deposits. Trial deposits were sent from Etrade and the like, but ING ignores any link attempts from brokerages etc. You can only link up to 3 regular checking accounts, and not brokerage checking. Signed the wife up nonetheless.

One of my goals for 2007 was to start a savings account...can you beleive that I only ever had a checking, I know, it's stupid...but ANYWAYS. Thanks OP great way to complete a goal, AND make $50 while doing it. GREEN for you!

Are there any fees or a minimum balance requirement associated with this account?

good finding I will try may be later today

hey really, still no one so much as ventured a guess:

can this be combined with $25 referral ?

alpinewhite said: PoorManDan said: I already have an ING account under my name only - anyone know if I could sign my wife up and get this bonus? Are two individual accounts under one household allowed there?Bonuses are per person. Yes, you can. I did it.

You can also do it with kids (joint). Just put the kid's name first (primary) then yours. I've done it for both of mine.

you mean you scored 3x$50=$150 in bonuses all within same hour?

The url isn't working...help.

You selected that you are subject to backup witholding, which is the reason that ING withheld the tax.

Opened account for my Wife yesterday. Both $50 bonus and initial $250 deposit are showing in the account.

I'm going to try opening the accounts for my two kids this this evening.

No luck!

I just tried opening joint account with my child as primary and myself as the secondary applicant.

"The information you have entered for the joint applicant is already active in our system.

If you believe you have received this message in error, please resubmit an application or call an ING DIRECT associate at 1-888-ING-0727 ."

No luck!

What you have to do is put your ING customer number in where it asks instead of filling out the information on yourself from scratch. I got the same message then I entered my customer number and it went through just fine. It doesn't matter if you are already a customer because the primary owner is the one getting the bonus. Once you do this it takes you to the next page where it even states that $50 will be credited to the account.

Is this a soft or hard pull? No one has really given a 100% concrete answer. Also how long do you have to wait before you can close this without a penalty? Can you fund directly from Paypal or does it have to be a checking account?

Went to http://www.ingdirect.com/nyt/ and entered NY3 in the text box for "Enter your reference code here" and clicked on "Open Now".

The next screen shows the following error.

We're sorry, but the referral link within the email you received has expired and is no longer valid. We recommend that you contact the sender and ask them to re-send the referral email. Or click 'Continue' to proceed with the application process without the account opening bonus.

What am I doing wrong?

Edit : Same probem from home as well as my work computer
Edit : Firefox seems to be working ok.

I would also like to know how long until I can pull all the money out. I'm sure it was somewhere in the disclosures but I don't recall seeing it....Anyone?

No, it does not stack. Just tried...

referal bonus and ny3 does not stack.

I refered my wife. then opened up her referal email. then clicked on it once. then closed browser. then opened the nyt link and entered code ny3. but it only showed $25 bonus on the next couple pages. I had to remove cookies and redo the process with the nyt link. I completed it and the $50 bonus showed up.

Worked without issue using Firefox and the $50 bonus showed up right away as expected. Thanks!

Thanks, in for one!

I am not sure how people were able to make thier kids as primary. If I enter my kid's information on the first step and click on Continue, I get the following error.

"This application cannot continue. To set up an Orange Savings Account you must either be over 18 years of age, or sign up for a joint account with an applicant who is over 18 years of age.

If you would like to change the set up of your account please click the back button below. "

Can people who have really done this throw some light? Did you provide an incorrect DOB for your kids which make them older than 18?

i get the exact same message and have the same problem when trying to open a joint account with my child. the application does not allow me to open a joint account if i list my child as the primary owner - it shows the above message and will not allow me to go on and add myself as a secondary owner. perhaps ing changed the application process when it comes to opening joint accounts with children as primary owners? how did the process work for those who succeeded?

I completed the first page by selecting joint account (use the drop down menu...it's easy to overlook) with my 17 year old son as primary using his (real) DOB and SSN and my email addy, the same one I use for my own account. This might be important, I don't know. The next page was for the joint applicant(me) and the very first section asks for a member number. The rest of the page was for filling in NEW joint owner info such as name, address, etc. First I skipped the member number and just entered my info which led to the "already in system" message. So I went back and entered my number and it worked. I also used the same checking account info as I did with my own ING account. It automatically linked the new one with my current one so when I log on using my number and password I see both now. The $50 bonus is in there even thought the initial deposit won't be made until today. Without knowing exactly what everyone else is seeing/doing I can't really provide any more help than that. Good luck everyone

Also, if you can't get to the $50 bonus deal try using a different browser or clearing you cache.

Just opened an account and $50 bonus showed up immediately. Thanks OP!

thank you, mladyd, for the detailed account.

i did previously select "joint account" from the drop down, filled in my daughter's authentic information, this time i tried to use the same email address i use with my own account, but still to no avail. i use firefox.

for some reason, after entering my daughter's information on the first page exactly as you describe, instead of going to a second page where i can enter my own information as the secondary account holder, i am still getting the message:

"This application cannot continue. To set up an Orange Savings Account you must either be over 18 years of age, or sign up for a joint account with an applicant who is over 18 years of age.

If you would like to change the set up of your account please click the back button below. "

it doesn't make any sense, because i have already selected "joint account", yet don't get the opportunity to enter the secondary owner info. this would have been a nice bonus for my daughter.

but thank you for the detailed info!
