For the month of January, TradeKing is offering a $50 signing bonus promotion where new accounts can earn $50 if they fund the account with at least $2,500 and make a trade. For those with accounts at other brokers, you can combine this promotion with their $150 transfer fee reimbursement offer which means you can get up to $200 for opening an account at TradeKing.
As always, TradeKing offers $4.95 stock trades which is one of the lowest available and there is no minimum balance requirements (outside of the $2500 to get the $50 bonus), which makes them one of the most appealing online brokers out there.
Here’s the fine print:
To qualify for this offer, new accounts must be opened and funded with $2,500 or more. Account funding must occur within 30 days of account opening, and one trade must be executed within 180 days of account opening, for account to qualify. Offer is not transferable or valid in conjunction with any other offer. Open to US residents only. One offer per household. TradeKing can modify or discontinue this offer at anytime without notice. The minimum funds of $2,500 must remain in the account (minus any trading losses) for a minimum of 6 months or the credit may be surrendered. Other restriction may apply.
