Convenient Banking

An ING account is very convenient. It is easy to set up, easy to transfer money into and out of, and best of all, they offer a high rate of interest for a savings account. You can use an ING account to keep your savings where you won't be tempted to spend them and where they will grow on their own from the interest.
