Black Friday isn’t just about shopping for electronics and kids toys. You can score a deal on a checking and savings account, too.
Capital One 360 is continuing the ING Direct tradition of offering special deals the day after Thanksgiving.
Here are the two we love:
- Open a 360 Checking Account between Nov. 29 and Dec. 2. If, within 45 days, you use your debit card to make five purchases or use CheckMate to make five remote check deposits (or a combo of both), Capital One gives you a $125 bonus on Day 50. It’s a decent account, too. No minimum balance fees, free ATM access at all Allpoint ATMs, and you’ll earn a tiny bit of interest on your money — for deposits under $50,000, the account has a 0.20% APY.
- Open a 360 Savings Account between Nov. 29 and Dec. 2 with an initial deposit of $500 or more, and Capital One gives you a $75 bonus. The savings account pays 0.75% APY, not among the nationwide leaders, but way better than average.
These offers aren’t good for those of you who already have a savings account or checking account with Capital One — and that includes if you opened those accounts while the bank was still ING Direct.
But that doesn’t mean you’re left out in the cold.
Capital One also has an intriguing “What are You Saving For?” contest. You can enter either by uploading a photo of what you’re saving for on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #SAVING4, or posting on Twitter what you’re saving for with the same hashtag. That enters you into their daily contest and for the grand prize of $25,000. If you’re not on social media, you can also upload a photo directly to their site through https://saving4.capitalone360.com/ and share what you’re saving for in the caption (keep it to 140 characters or less).
