I’ve had a high yield savings account with E*TRADE since February, and it ranks as one of the best high yield savings accounts, in my opinion. At the time I opened it, they were offering a $25 bonus to go along with their 5.05% APY on the account. They’ve stopped offering that bonus to the public.
However, I got an exciting email from them. They’re offering me the opportunity to offer you the $25 bonus for opening the account, as well as giving me $10 for each one of you that signs up! Yes, this is an awful lot like the ING referrals that you see everywhere, except for a few differences:
- E*TRADE’s APY for this account is 5.05%, higher than ING’s 4.5%.
- The minimum deposit to open the account and get the bonus is $1, unlike ING’s $250 opening deposit (to get their bonus).
- This is a limited time offer. You have to get it before 10/31/2007.
There are no fees on this account, if you were wondering. No low balance fees, no annual fee – nothing like that. I’ve had just over $6 parked in it for several months, and it just sits there, racking up interest! 😉
Interested? Leave a comment on this entry, and be sure to use your first and last name and email address. I can only send invitations to this via email, so that’s why I’ll need you to leave your email address. If you’re not comfortable leaving your first and last name in the comments, you can contact me through email instead.
If you’re not comfortable giving me your first and last name, you can try using a fake name. But I am not responsible if this gives you trouble when you try to open the account – do this at your own risk!
You can check out the terms of the E*TRADE Complete Savings Account, but remember that if you apply directly on their website and not from my email, you will not receive the $25 bonus!
