You know I love ING Direct products.
I have both the Orange savings account for online savings and their Electric Orange checking account. What I also have is a brokerage account with ShareBuilder (owned by ING Direct). This is where I buy stocks outside of my IRA accounts.
ShareBuilder is offering a promotion where new customers get a $50 bonus code for opening a new ShareBuilder account.
The offer is in effect until 9/30/12. In order to receive the bonus you need to fund your account with $2,000. And most important – make sure to enter the code 50LSQ3 when you sign up to make sure your account gets credited with the $50 bonus!
- Inexpensive trades
- Transfer funds instantly from my ING Direct account
- Ability to buy fractional shares (that means you can buy a piece of a share if the share price is too expensive for you now, like Bershire Hathaway or Apple even)
- Automatic reinvestment of dividends and capital gains (if you choose).
- You can invest with any amount.
- There are no account minimums (but be aware that this promo does require a minimum to get the bonus).
Here are the fine print details of the ShareBuilder $50 bonus:
You must open a new ShareBuilder account and deposit $2,000 or more to be eligible for this promotion. Initial deposit must be completed by 9/30/12. ING DIRECT Investing will deposit a $50 bonus approximately 4-6 weeks after your first $2,000 deposit. The $50 bonus offer is available for Individual, Joint and Custodial accounts only. Offer not valid for IRAs or ESAs. The $50 bonus is not available for withdrawal for 90 days after it is awarded to your account. This offer is not valid with any other offers and is non-transferrable. Limit one ShareBuilder account bonus per unique customer or custodial beneficiary. We reserve the right to terminate this offer at any time and to refuse or recover any promotion award if we determine that it was obtained under wrongful or fraudulent circumstances, that inaccurate or incomplete information was provided in opening the account, or that any terms of our Acc ount Agreement have been violated. Offer expires 9/30/12.
Like I said, this is my personal account for investing, outside of my retirement accounts. We also list ShareBuilder as one of the best online stock brokerages for free trades.
If you have been looking for a place to invest you should look at ShareBuilder. And this promo is a great way to get a quick return for your money!
