How’s that for brilliant marketing? I wish I could say I came up with it myself, but it was actually ING Direct who coined it – my 2nd favorite online bank (USAA is my first). I’m not sure how long this campaign of theirs has been going on, but I saw this quote on a billboard leaving Philly last weekend and it’s been stuck in my mind ever since :) It’s SO TRUE!
And oddly enough, I just started banking with them! Yup, I took the plunge with hundreds of other PF bloggers out there and I’ll be using this account as my “do whatever I please with” money. You know, the one most husbands have when they want to spend $100+ on shoes or $70 on a video game they’ll play for one weekend straight and then give up on? Well, I’m too frugal to do those things exactly, but the idea that I *could* do that if I wanted is still pretty exciting ;)

ING Direct is awesome. And if you don’t believe me, check out the hundreds of reviews out there. I’d do one myself but it just sounds awfully boring right now ;) The other bloggers are better at it…
