"We are always looking for unique and creative ways to bring savings to
Canadians, and what better way is there to get Savers' attention than
by putting money on sale," said Andrew Zimakas, VP Marketing, ING
DIRECT. "While Canadians are scouring the Web today for the best Cyber
Monday deals, we're offering them ways to get even greater savings for
their hard earned dollars."
ING DIRECT's one day sale coincides with Cyber Monday, the biggest
online shopping day of the year. According to a recent survey by the
bank, a quarter of Canadians will be looking for the best bang for
their buck online today, with computer and electronics cited as the
most coveted items to purchase (16%), followed by books, music and
movies (15%) and clothes (14%).
"Putting money on sale breaks the mold of what Canadians expect from a
bank," said Peter Aceto, President and CEO, ING DIRECT. "A sale like
this reinforces ING DIRECT's commitment to help Canadians save, and
shows that saving can be as fun as spending."
Just in time for the holidays, the one day sale is an early gift for
Canadians looking to save even more. ING DIRECT's recent holiday survey
revealed 35 per cent of Canadians will spend less this year compared to
last, with $450 being the average saved for holiday-related purchases.
Canadians will have today only to cash in on the four offers from ING
DIRECT. Visit ingdirect.ca/saleonmoney for details on all the deals.
