Okay – so in case you haven’t already heard in this world of insane media coverage, Randall Simon of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball club decided it was a good idea to take matters into his own hands last night and take a swing at the “racing sausage” in an event that takes place regularly during Milwaukee Brewers games… He was “spoken to” by the sheriff’s department, along with the two persons inside the costumes [there’s people in them there costumes!]… You can catch video of the event at the link above… If anything, it’s at least amusing, considering you were watching a Brewers-Pirates game.
So I’ve found that if you have an account at ING DIRECT, at least here in the USA, if you refer a friend and they sign up for a savings account, you get $10, no matter what the minimum is that they deposit. You have 30 days to wait until you have access to the money, but hey, they have ridiculously high interest, and are quite fast at transferring money in and out of your account. You can have unlimited deposits (of course) and up to 4 withdrawals/transfers a month with no fees… And for your friend signing up, they get $25 in their account after 30 days. Sounds like a no brainer to me, don’t you think? Word to the wise – open a savings account. It’s probably a good idea. And no, they’re not paying me to say this =)
And last but not least, what the heck is this deal… Travel insurance fraud? Will the wonders ever cease? People are claiming various things to their insurance companies in order to “recover” costs such? So while the concept seems to evade me, the article is at least amusing.
