E-Trade Savings Account - Free $25

Update: The $25 bonus expired, but it's still a nice account to have. If you want the bonus, sign up for an ING account.

Open an E-Trade Savings Account and get $25!

Now, besides for the free $25, it's a pretty good account. Here's why:
  • Interest rate is 3.01% APY, which is better than most savings accounts these days (rates may change at any time though)
  • The account is free, and there is no minimum account balance
  • When you open the account you only need to deposit $1
  • $25 will show up in account a few days after opening account and depositing at least $1
  • It's very easy to transfer money in and out of the account
  • You can use the account to create Direct Deposits for accounts that require it (see Bank Promotions). You can even have the same few dollars going back and forth every month...
  • There's no hard pull when you open the account, so it won't affect your credit.
You can transfer money out of your E-trade to another account up to 6 times a month. There is no limit to how many times a month you can deposit money into the account.

Offer expires 2/25/2009.

E-Trade runs this promotion every few months. As of now, you can get another $25 for opening a new account every time E-Trade offers this promotion.
