ING has a contest where if you have your tax refund deposited into your savings account you could double it. I would imagine that only a few people have their ING savings account linked with Revenue Canada. This contest should have better chances of winning than most.

The catch is your winnings will only be equal to your refund. But for the Frugal Canadian every dollar counts.

Don’t forget to have your 2008 tax refund deposited directly into any one of your ING DIRECT Accounts. When your refund comes into your ING DIRECT Account; you’ll be automatically entered to win cash equal to your refund, up to $5,000.

The tax filing deadline is April 30th, so be sure to provide the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) with the following details: Transit (“Branch”) number 00152, institution number 614, plus your ING DIRECT Account number.

Please note that Quebec residents can only have their federal tax return direct deposited. This means, the federal amount will be used for the contest.

The ING DIRECT “Double your Tax Refund Contest” runs until October 31, 2009 and we’ll announce 10 lucky winners of up to $5,000 each in November. Don’t miss your chance to be one of them. Enter and turn your tax refund into a ‘refund refund’!
