I am excited to announce the launch of our new blog. Earlier this month I launched Excess Return and a FREE investing e-book to go with it! ExcessReturn.net will solely focus to provide practical and useful articles for investors.
We seek to present exceptional and noteworthy information, tutorials and resources that are essential for investors to gain a better understanding of the financial markets.
With the launch of the blog I am also providing a FREE ebook to get you started on your investing journey. It covers important investment principles and concepts that I hope you will find useful. Just visit Excess Return and download your free guide. Thoughts, comments and suggestions are welcome!
I have talked about ING doubling their $25 bonus to $50 for the summer and I am sure most of you have taken advantage of it. If you haven’t yet, you only have two weeks to do so! The promo runs till August 31st so you have about 14 days to open an account and claim your $50.
How to claim your $50? (Canada)
It’s simple, just copy the Orange Key (39597236S1), go to ING Direct. Find the right account for your needs and at the end when asked for Orange Key just enter this number (39597236S1) . Don’t worry about it saying $25, they will deposite $50.
1. Go to ING Direct
2. Find the right account that fits your needs.
3. When asked for Orange Key just enter this number (39597236S1)
You will see $50 deposited in your account in a few days when they receive your check.
