Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - Let ING DIRECT refund your ABM fees, pay for your commute and keep a few extra dollars in your pocket

    September 18th is National Save Your Money Day(R) and ING DIRECT is
    hitting the streets to help 20,000 Canadians save their money

    CALGARY, 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
              fees. ING DIRECT Canada will once again help Canadians save on
              those expenses with their 2nd annual national savings day.

              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
              performing random acts of savings like refunding ABM fees and
              handing out transit tokens and coffee coupons.
