Get $125 + $75 at Capital One 360 “Sale”


Comments

CapOne360BlackFriday-OrigShhh!!! Capital One 360 doesn’t know what “sale” means. They think it means to give away cash.

Now through Monday night ONLY, they will give you a $125 BONUS if you open a 360 Checking account and a $75 BONUS if you open a 360 Savings account.  Click on the links to open your accounts.

I have both of these accounts. No Minimums. No fees. No tricks. No brainer.

Black Friday is about deals.  Where else can you actually make $200 in ten minutes today?

When you get back from the jungle of credit card wielding, sleep-deprived bargain hunters, reload your bankroll!

Let me know if you have questions. Details here:

Capital One 360′s “Sale” ($ for you)

YukonCorneliusRevYou guys always wanna know when someone is giving away free money.  Well, here you go!  Capital One 360 is giving away a lot of cash.  Period.  You must open your account(s) online by Wednesday night, July 3rd at 11:59pm Eastern.

I think the 360 Checking is the easiest $100 you can make.  The 360 Savings$76 ain’t too shabby either.

The interest rates are some of the highest you’ll find.  The promotional bonuses make them a no-brainer.

If this Financial Independence Days “Sale” sounds familiar, ING Direct used to do it.  Capital One 360 bought them.  This is legit & FDIC insured.  I got bonuses previously.

Open these accounts and you will have $$$ to blow at a shmancy steak joint.  Okay, sushi.  I’m staying out of it.  As Yukon Cornelius would say, “You eat what you like.  I’ll eat what I like.”

What Would You Do For $75.00?


Comments

linda_evangelista_thong-cropped-smallUber-model Linda Evangelista once said, “I don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.”  Well, neither should you – if you’ll dial that back to 50-75 bucks.

Are you darn near flat-broke?  If the needle on your fundometer is almost on “E”, why turn your nose up at free cash?  That’s baby-sitter money, a nice dinner, or poker dough!

Capital One 360 simply wants to give you $50 and $25 to date them.  Heck, if you wanted, you could close your accounts after you get your bonuses.  Just say, “It’s not you, it’s me.”  Then spend the $75 on tequila shots.

Remember, you don’t have to leave your current bank.  You are just trying out these Capital One 360 bank accounts.  They can co-exist.  You didn’t get rid of your Pepsi products before you tried Coke.  The scoop:

Stupid Tax Tip #1


Comments

CletusAccording to my mailbox, it’s tax time.  “The Running of the 1099s”, if you will.  I got a note from ING DIRECT saying that I was not going to get a 1099.  That’s right.  They sent me something saying they weren’t going to send me something.  They run a tight ship and I’m onboard!  I betcha if ING does something that isn’t on their “To Do” list, they go back, write it on the list, then cross it off.

Why no 1099?  I had my dough elsewhere in 2012.  I didn’t earn $10 in interest at ING.  That is the cut-off point.  Banks don’t have to report less than $10 interest.  If you made less than a sawbuck and the banks didn’t send you a 1099 – you don’t have to report it.

Stupid Tax Tip #1: Open 1,000 accounts. Put $100 in each. Don’t report interest.

Easy $76+ from ING (thru July 3rd)


Comments

UPDATE for 2013 — ING DIRECT is now Capital One 360.

360 Checking (formerly Electric Orange)
360 Savings (formerly Orange Savings)
360 Kids Savings (formerly Kids Savings)
360 Money for Teens (formerly Money)

ING DIRECT is giving away a lot of cash.  Period.  You must act by Tuesday night.  If nothing else, get the first one and collect the easiest $76 you’ve made in a while.  Okay, the legalist easiestest.  It is something ANY adult can do:

$76 just for opening an ING Electric Orange account.  No Minimums.  Like I said – free money!  You will have to make five purchases in 45 days with the debit card they send you, so you will want to have some money in there to pay for your five purchases.  Go to the self-serve checkout at the grocery and buy 5 whatevers.  Done and done!  They’ll add $76 to your account by August 22nd.  If you and the significant other do it, you will have $152 to blow at a schmancy steak joint.  Okay, sushi.  I’m staying out of it.

Get another $76 bonus for referring two friends who successfully open an ING Orange Savings account.  Plus, each friend gets $25.  Then they could do the ING Electric Orange $76 thing as well.

4.09% Interest Checking + $50


Comments

4.09% is atop the Rate Leader Board.  Find it at Waukegan’s own Consumers Credit Union.  Apply online.  You can get a $50 bonus just for trying them out for two full months.  The Free Rewards Checking rate is guaranteed through June 30, 2012 on deposits up to $10,000.

Think outside the box, outside the 9 dots, baby!  Yes, this is a “checking” account, but think of this as an awesome 4.09% savings account. Having the Free Rewards Checking account does not mean you must close your current checking account and move all your banking to CCU.  Take them up on their $50 offer (expired) to try them out.  While doing so, get 4.09% interest on your money.

UPDATE: The $50 bonus has ended.  Starting July 1, 2012 the 4.09% rate is scheduled to drop to 3.09% for balances up to $5,000.
