It's fine now. Going over their offering, I notice something that is problematic - for me. When I push/pull funds via ACH using Treasury Direct (.gov), the funds arrive at their intended destination immediately on the scheduled date. [Note: I haven't an account with IngDirect.] I see that ING wants to play the banking-as-usual game, though. No fees, no minimums - looks good on a brochure. But instead of being competitive with the funds they have for lending, which is the business they're in, they choose to engage in deceit. I'm referring to the non-interest-earning, 2-3 day hold on linked funds - going into and out of one's ingdirect account. Everybody does it, but it seems deceitful to me. If TreasuryDirect can manage to push/pull without delay, why can't everyone else? Because it's another profit center to them. Deception, deception, deception. Welcome to Capitalism.
