Opening an ING Direct Savings Account..

Ok I need help from someone with experience, so I am with TD Canada Trust, and I don't have any cheques for my Chequing account.

Other then paying the $20 to get a book for cheques printed.. what are my other options?

Will they take a bank draft? anything else? etc...

I went and got a "New Direct Deposit/Pre-authorized Transaction" form...

but I called ING and its no good.. needs to be a cheque.


I called the local branch, and no branches have the machines to make temporary cheques anymore...

If it's any consolation... the $25 opening bonus might help to offset the fees for your cheques... (assuming you know someone with an orange key)
Congratulations!
Today is YOUR day.
You're off to great places!
You're off and away!

Open up and PC Financial account since it's free with no minimum balance and slowly withdraw and deposit into the other account and write a cheque

I thought when you first open a chequing account, TD gives you 4 cheques for you to "try" and use. Afterwords, you'll have to order cheques which is expensive at first but in the long run you'll find some use for the cheques. And as cadave has mentioned there is a $25 bonus if you open a ING account with someone referring you.

i think they only take cheques with preprinted info...the free cheques usually doesnt come with the info preprinted.

I called ING and got a really friendly rep who said to try and ask TD for a "Counter Cheque", she said they will accept those.

You could also order cheques from a thrid party. I heard ASAP cheques are pretty cheap, although I think they may have went up in price. There's a thread about that somewhere in these forums.

Counter Cheques are a NO GO, TD just straight up won't print cheques.


Guess I have to order them now. bye bye $25!
