The E*TRADE® Money Market Account is offered by E*TRADE Bank. Annual Percentage Yield (APY) of 4.75% APY is good for 90 days from the date the account is opened and funded. Accounts must be opened by April 30, 2006 to qualify. This offer is only good for new E*TRADE® Money Market Account customers and existing E*TRADE® Money Market Account customers who transfer at least $25,000 in new funds from an external (i.e., non-E*TRADE) account into their existing E*TRADE® Money Market Account. E*TRADE Bank retains the right to withdraw the 4.75% introductory APY from any account at any time if these conditions are not met. Offer applies to one new account per customer. A $100 minimum deposit is required to open a new E*TRADE® Money Market Account and account holders must maintain a minimum average monthly balance of $1,000, or $5,000 in total E*TRADE Bank deposits, by the end of their second statement cycle to avoid a $10 monthly fee. This fee is waived for customers who maintain a combined balance of $50,000 or more in linked E*TRADE Securities and E*TRADE Bank accounts or execute at least 30 stock or options trades during a calendar quarter. To learn more about qualifications, please visit etrade.com. A $10 early closeout fee will be assessed if account is closed within 120 days of opening.
After the 90-day introductory period customers will receive the current APY based on account balance. Current as of 4/8/2006, accounts with balances of $100,000 or more earn 3.70%; those with $50,000 to $99,999 earn 3.70%; those with $5,000 - $49,999 earn 2.80% and those with less than $5,000 earn 0.30%. For example, if an account is opened with $10,000 and the introductory offer is a 4.75%, the account will yield 4.75% APY for 90 days and 2.80% APY for the non-introductory period thereafter. Therefore the blended APY for the first year after account opening is 3.28%. APY is subject to change daily and fees will reduce earnings.
