How does getting $50 for doing almost nothing sound? That’s what I thought. Open a TradeKing account and get $50. If you’re unfamiliar with TradeKing, I did a quick overview back in early 2007. Surprisingly, not much has changed since then, and TradeKing remains an outstanding company that hasn’t raised their very low trade prices and option contract prices.
In addition to the low prices and great service, they have an outstanding online community where their customers can interact. You’ll see people exchanging trade ideas, investment strategies, and other fun money discussions. If I didn’t have a job and just traded stocks all day, I could live over there. It’s a lot of fun, and plenty to learn.
How to Qualify for the Deal
- Has to be a new non-retirement account
- Funded with $2,500
- $50 credit applied when first trade is made
- Maintain a $2,500 (less any investment losses) balance for six months
- Only one promotion per household
- Account must be opened after following a promotional link – not available by visiting the site directly
As you know, the market has really taken a hit over the past year, so there couldn’t be a better time to put a little money in the market. Plus, I can personally vouch for this company. I don’t usually discuss any specific products or services on this site, but TradeKing is one I can stand behind, so I feel comfortable making this recommendation. They were ranked number one this year in customer service, have great prices, and the online community is unlike anything else out there. But don’t just take my word for it, Open a TradeKing account and get $50.
