Thinking about opening a Virtual Bank account?
I decided to open a Virtual Bank savings account. They gave me $20 for opening it, so I figured I don’t have much to lose. I have always been an ING Direct customer, but I am trying to keep an eye out for other up and coming great online banks, so I decided to check out Virtual Bank.

Virtual Bank security
As far as security goes, Virtual Bank really does a good job of keeping the bad guys out. They have quite a few security measure in place.

The $20 Virtual Bank referral bonus
One of the cool things about Virtual Bank is that they offer a $20 bonus for referrals. The referrer and the referree both make $20. Not a bad deal at all… Oh and of course it is FDIC insured, so you don’t have to worry about that! If you are interested in opening a Virtual Bank Savings account make sure you contact me so you can get the referral bonus cash!!
Also, if you are a current Virtual Bank user I would love to hear your opinion on them as well…
