By "invitation", do you mean referral? Is that necessary; or could one just as simply go to the ING site, sign up, and receive $25 just the same without a "middle man"?

The PNC Bank Offer is awesome. I did it last month, and it was super easy!

You can sign up right at their site, but they only give the $25 bonus if referred via a friend.

Once in a while, they will also have bonus codes as well. They usually mail these to you in the mail.

It is still a good savings account ( I have had a good experience with them ), so even without the $25, it is a good program, if you don't want to be referred.

Unfortunately, not. Unless you are getting payments from the government, you can have that directed there and it should qualify ( Social Security, etc ).

Call PNC to verify if you do receive any type of government payments.

If you don't have that option, you may want to try the Sharebuilder, ING Direct and College Advantage offers. They do not require direct deposit. They are not worth as much, but together they add up to $75.

ING Direct requires $250 opening balance. Sharebuilder has no minimum, just that you complete a trade of any value and College Advantage requires $25 opening balance.

Is it a one time direct deposit from another bank, or does it have to be continual payroll direct deposit. My employer does not do direct deposit - it's hard to find a bank offer now that doesn't require it.

Carrie @ Moneysavingmethods.com said...


My understanding is that you need to do a direct deposit and 7 days later they give you your bonus.

It doesn't mention it being ongoing, but you may want to call them to check.

I think my email requesting an ING invite keeps getting lost. Could you send me one please? I really appreciate it.
