Emergency Fund finds home at ING!

Decided to open a new ING account seperate from my debt reduction savings. Here I will house my $1000 Emergency Fund which was currently held in a regular savings account at my bank. Ive dealt with several people at ING and think their customer service is outstanding. ALso the turn around time with money being put BACK in your account IN CASE of an emergency is also a plus. Interest aside, they are far superior than my personal banking institution.

Just out of curiosity, did you look into Emigrant Direct or HSBC Direct? Why did you choose ING (lower APY compared to these other two)? We choose Emigrant Direct, but at times, are very disappointed with their customer service AND processing time. Yet, we continue to use their service due to the higher APY.
