What is the ING Direct Refer a Friend Program?

Posted by martinharford on August 27, 2009

For a relatively long time now ING Direct Canada has been offering a program to encourage their current customers to get people they know, whether friends, family or associates, to sign up for an account.

The program essentially gives both the person referring and the person being referred a small bonus as long as a certain minimal deposit amount.

The deposit:

Currently this minimum amount is $100 and can be deposited into any type of account with ING Direct.  This includes pretty much any account that ING offers whether it be RSP, TFSA or regular.

The reward/bonus:

While in the past the values of the referral bonus has varied a bit, typically $13 but the program has been cancelled at times and was $0 for a while.  Currently the reward is $25 for each the referrer and the person signing up.

According to ING Canada you are supposed to get the bonus within 24hrs of depositing the minimal $100 into your account.  Note the distinction between 24hrs from opening your account and 24hrs from depositing the money.  As the typical manner of depositing the money is a check in the mail this of course will likely be more then just one day and could be as much as a few weeks depending on how fast postal mail takes your check to Toronto.

Signing up & actually getting the bonus:

All this information is great, however I have left out one important part, how does ING Direct know that you have been referred to sign up for the account and hence how do you get the money for being referred?

Well, put when you are referred you should be given a referral code which ING calls an Orange Key.  How you get this key is relatively unimportant to them just as long as you use it when you sign up.

It is of course important to include the referral code when you sign up for whatever account you have chosen.  Without the code you will not be able to get the bonus money.

Getting the referral code or Orange Key:

As already stated as far as ING is concerned it doesn’t really matter where you get the code just as long as you use it when sign up.  In fact they’d probably prefer that you didn’t use it when you sign up since it would save them money.

So where do you find a code?

Well maybe you have a friend that is already an ING Direct customer and as such would love to share their Orange Key with you.

Short of that you can of course search the internet for one as there are plenty of people out there who are posting theirs in various places all over the internet.  A word of caution with doing that is simply that the ones you might find may no longer be valid so just be sure that the number has been posted relatively recently.

You could of course use the one I have posted here (34908230S1), which I know is valid since I do find my account getting the bonus from time to time.  As you may guess this is my preference, but feel free to do however you like.

Conclusion:

While I wouldn’t necessarily say that everyone should just go out and sign up with ING Direct Canada just because they can get $25 when the do it.  I would say that if you are planning on doing so I would make certain that I had valid Orange Key since there certainly is no harm in getting yourself an extra bit of money.

    WARNING!!! Do NOT use the orange key on this site. It has already been used up and can no longer be used. You CANNOT take advantage of ING’s free $25 using it. I opened a new ING account using the number on this site. I thought I was gonna get $25 free, but later found out that the Orange Key was expired. I managed to call ING and explain the situation.

    Luckily, they let me use another Orange Key (one that’s VALID). If anyone wants a WORKING, VALID Orange Key go to this site:
    http://ingdirect-orangekey.blogspot.com/

    I’ve confirmed that this Orange Key is VALID and WORKING. It was recently created and never used before so it WILL NOT EXPIRE for a while.

    Cheers and HAPPY SAVING!,
    Melanie
