Well, I’m bummed out.
(Zoe, circa 2009, illustrating the whole being bummed out thing)
When I was telling you all about the Black Friday weekend account bonuses that ING is offering, I mentioned ableBanking as viable alternative if you’re worried about the Capital One buyout.
But an eagle-eyed reader just alerted me to the fact that ableBanking now requires a $1000 minimum deposit.
To be very honest, I’m really disappointed by this. $1000?? I’ve always loved that ING lets you open multiple accounts with as little as $1 to start because this has let me open multiple accounts for multiple savings goals and has revolutionized the way we manage our money.
And really, not a lot of people have $1000 to plunk down in a savings account unless they’ve already been saving for a while.
So, for the moment, I really do think that ING is the best option for you if you’d like to have a bunch of targeted savings accounts like I do (here’s more detail about how I do that.)
