Emigrant Direct Signup Bonus Update – March Payouts

Payout instructions for my Emigrant Direct Referral Bonus went out over the last two weeks for those that either sent me their Form #2’s or Claim Form A’s in March. Please let me know if there are any questions.

Emigrant Direct offers an online savings account paying 5.05% APY with no minimum balance requirements, and I have partnered with them to offer a sign-up bonus worth up to $20 if you choose to open an account with them through my specific link. Combine this with the $25 opening bonus from Capital One 360 and $20 opening bonus from VirtualBank for some quick bucks. Some have minimum opening amounts, but none have ongoing minimum balance requirements or monthly fees, so you can try each one out and just stay with the ones you like.


  1. Thanks for posting these– they truly are a great tool for growing your money. My first step in making good financial decisions was opening an ING Direct account. Before that, I wasn’t making bad decisions with my money, but I wasn’t having it work for me, either. It was just sitting in a checking account earning .005% and withering away.

  2. Thanks so much! It was worth the wait.
    I did the 2 ING referrels and I got 1 bonus already!

  3. Richard says:

    Any word on whether any of these 3 banks do hard credit pulls?

  4. None of these banks (ING/Virtualbank/Emigrant Direct) performed hard credit pulls on me, nor have I heard of them doing so for anyone else.

  5. Jonathan,

    I apologize if this is a repeat message for you, but are you still offering the bonus for signing up for an Emigrant Direct account?

  6. Are the ING/Virtualbank/Emigrant Direct sign up bonuses still going on?
