VANCOUVER, Sept. 17 /CNW/ -
WHAT: It's the small, everyday expenses that add up over time - your
morning coffee, your daily commute and those inconvenient ABM

Designed to show Canadians that small changes in their daily
spending habits can add up to big savings, ING DIRECT will deploy
orange-clad street teams into five Canadian cities, including
Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, and Montreal, performing
random acts of savings like refunding ABM fees and handing out
transit tokens and coffee coupons.
