Opened an HSBC Direct account tonight. I found a thread on FatWallet with a link for a $25 sign up bonus. It currently pays 4.00% compared to ING's 3.75%. Should be interesting to see how both banks react to the Fed's interest hike today.

I mainly opened the account for the $25, but if I like it, I'll put more money into it. I plan on keeping ING just because I like them and I still have referals left. (If anyone wants one, email me at StartingMoney [at] Gmail [dot] com. Must have $250 opening deposit.) My initial HSBC deposit is just $100.

I haven't gotten the email to confirm my application yet... hopefully they don't "deny" me ;)
