ING – Savings Account
ING offers a Tagesgeldkonto called “Extra-Konto” (daily money account) as a flexible savings account. Customers who open their first Tagesgeldkonto can receive a bonus interest rate of 3.5% per annum for the first 6 months.
- Bonus interest rate of 3.5% per annum for the first 6 months
- No account management fees
- Free and unlimited deposits and withdrawals
- Daily interest payments
- Flexible account management through online banking and mobile app
- FDIC-insured up to €100,000
Currently, the interest rate for the Tagesgeldkonto “Extra-Konto” is 1.25% per annum. However, new customers who open their first Tagesgeldkonto can receive a bonus interest rate of 3.5% per annum for the first 6 months on up to 100,000 Euro. This bonus interest rate is only applicable to the first Tagesgeldkonto opened with ING Bank and is limited to one account per customer. The bonus interest rate is calculated on the daily balance and paid monthly.
There are no account management fees associated with the Tagesgeldkonto. Furthermore, deposits and withdrawals are free and unlimited, making it easy for customers to manage their money without incurring any additional costs.
Customers can manage their Tagesgeldkonto through ING Bank’s online banking platform or mobile app. This allows for convenient and flexible account management, making it easy to monitor balances, deposit or withdraw money, and view transaction history.
ING Bank is a member of the European Union’s deposit insurance scheme. This means that deposits up to €100,000 per customer are guaranteed by the Dutch deposit insurance scheme.
One of the main advantages of the Tagesgeldkonto is the bonus interest rate offered to new customers. This allows customers to earn a higher interest rate on their savings for the first 6 months. Additionally, there are no account management fees associated with the account, making it a cost-effective option for customers who want to save money.
The Tagesgeldkonto also offers flexible account management through ING Bank’s online banking platform and mobile app. This allows customers to manage their account from the comfort of their own home or on-the-go, making it a convenient option for busy individuals.
The current interest rate for the Tagesgeldkonto is only 0.6% per annum, which is relatively low compared to some other savings account options. Furthermore, the bonus interest rate of 3% per annum is only applicable for the first 6 months, meaning that after this period, customers will earn a lower interest rate on their savings.
Another potential disadvantage is that the Tagesgeldkonto is only available to customers who live in Germany. This limits the availability of the account to a specific group of individuals.
Overall, the Tagesgeldkonto offered by ING Bank is a cost-effective and flexible savings account option for customers who want to manage their money online. While the interest rates may not be the highest on the market, the bonus interest rate offered to new customers for the first 6 months provides an attractive incentive to open an account. Additionally, the lack of account management fees and unlimited deposits and withdrawals make it a convenient and accessible option for customers looking to save money.
