Open and deposit £1 into the ING Direct Savings Account. Online account, they stipulate you need a current account that has a cheque book and allows direct debits.

Basically you apply entering the code shown on the page, fill in your details to open the account. Deposit £1 by debit card if it allows you (Some people get the option, some don't), if you don't just send a £1 cheque to the FREEPOST address shown. Once your account is opened 28 days later you'll receive the bonus and you can close the account if you wish.

If you want to use the account as a savings account the interest rate is 2.75% with no penalties for withdrawals, although you get 2.8% with the aa.com. Also please note that ING Direct is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme as it is covered by the Dutch equivalent.

Hi, what's the promotion code? Am I being stupid, I can't see it

quote promotion code ING085.

great £20 for free!! All done!

Thanks!! All done

Thank you just done this too

Woo, easy 20 quid

Apparently they do a credit check to open this account.
I am not interested to have them check my credit for a saving account. Thanks anyway

Done no problem at all.

I've been told by a friend that banks charge you for closing an account. Can anyone confirm that the charge will not be 20 squid and therefore a pointless exercise?

Just googled 'bank charges' and apparently some banks do charge to close an account. Looked through ING's Terms and Conditions and can't see charges for closing with them. So in for a penny and in for 2000 of them. Thanks kamzy but my first name is Thomas!

Never heard of any bank charging to close an account. Which bank was that?

easy - and rickysticky why would they charge you for closing an account

Always happy to get free money. Thanks

Promo Code: ING085

I just registered. I have to end a cheque for £1, but that's cool as it's a Freepost address anyway.

Thanks just done this

Doesn't work for me. It says "we already have your details- please log in to continue". When I do log in, there is only one way to open a savings account, but there is nowhere to use the promo code. I dont have a savings account with them but I do have a mortgage, which is not mentioned in the T&C's. :-(

Done!Account opened!

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme my twenty quid X)

Lava-like hot!

NICE1 free money is alway to good to turn down..

bah i dont have a chequebook, better order one, you cant open an account without one

Stupid question: How can I transfer money to this account? Can I simple use online banking to transfer money from my current account or do I need to send them a cheque each time I wanna deposit some money (that would be really ridicilious).

Saving rates are pretty good, hope the money is save their!

you MUST send a cheque cant do it online, I phoned the customer services and he just said "no its one of our minimum requirements, goodbye" lol

I paid the pound with my debit card. So no, you don't need a cheque book..

Easy thanks - useful deposit account with sensible standard rate interest

richohone

I tried and had no option to do it with my debit card, I don't have a chequebook (never needed one before) so guess I won't bother with this. Wonder how it chooses whether you're eligible to pay by debit card/direct or whether you have to send a cheque. Too bad for me.

Ah didn't see that in the original post. That's really odd. I can't see any reason to stop someone using their debit card and make them send a cheque instead?

Sweet - hottest deal ever!
Thanks OP

Thats me signed up,

there was no debit card option for me but i could make my first payment via direct debit, There was no obligation for repeat payments so i went for it.

Opened ING account a few years a go. Had to send a cheque for first deposit, but after that, it links to your bank so you can just transfer.

Crap interest rate at the moment though if your actually considering it as a savings account.
