Make an easy $100 and trade a stock for free!
The Forbes "Best of the Web" recognized brokerage optionsXpress is offering a $100 bonus for opening up an account.
The bonus is ONLY available by referral, which I will send. You get $100 and I get $100.
On top of the $100, to sweeten the deal, I will cover the cost ($8.95) of the trade that is required to receive the bonus. I can send via PayPal or Check. I will send this after receiving the bonus myself.
So what do you need to do?
- Send me the email address you would like your referral sent to. Please put in your email subject: "optionsXpress Referral Bonus"
- Once you receive the referral email, open the account LISTING THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS THE REFERRAL WAS SENT TO and ENTER THE PROMO CODE "FRIEND" IN THE ONLINE APPLICATION
- Fund account with at least $520 (ACH, Check etc.). At least $520 so that after your first trade ($8.95), you will still have over the required $500. More is safer though in case your trade drops in value.
- Execute trade
- Receive $100 bonus from optionsXpress
- Receive $8.95 from me which covers the trade
Here's the optionsXpress fine print:
$100 in your account and $100 in your friend's account
