A Tiny Step Forward

in Money & Spending

I mailed the €128 check to our ING emergency fund this morning. I also included a check for €72. We can call it a kind of ‘stupid tax’ because I should have put away a lot more this month, but didn’t. So the emergency fund will be €200 richer in a few days and I can cross depositing the check off my miles long to-do list!

can you do a post on ING ? I’m assuming it is some type of savings account? excuse my lack of intelligence.

It’s a bank. You’ve probably seen links and referrals all over the personal finance blogosphere, especially in relation to their online savings accounts? You deposit $250 using someone’s referral and you get $25; they get $10. Sound familiar?
I can’t open a US account, so I don’t have referrals through them. I do have the French account.
The thing I like about them is that the interest rate is rather high (4% for me), they are not connected to my main account, so no leaching money (when I remember to deposit it) and you can have subaccounts.
