Unfortunately the TradeKing $100 Signup Bonus has expired. Please see our TradeKing promotional code page for more TradeKing promotions.
Those of you who follow Before You Invest may know already, either from our promotional code page or via Twitter, but if you have been considering signing up for TradeKing there has never been a better time because they are offering a $100 signup bonus for all new accounts opened in August of 2011.
As with everything there are always terms and conditions so I will save you the leg work of finding them. If you would like to read it for yourself you can always click here, but I will try to sum it all up below.
First, you must open a new account and fund it with $2,500 or more. (Note: TradeKing has no minimum balance to open an account, but you need $2,500 to qualify for the $100 signup bonus. See more in our TradeKing review.) and that amount or greater must remain in your account for the first six months.
You also need to execute three trades within the first 180 days of the account opening. This should be no problem for most of you who want to diversify your portfolio, but anyone who was thinking about signing up just for the bonus without making trades, it wont work.
That’s pretty much it, the standard boilerplate terms and conditions also apply so be sure to read through the T’s and C’s on your own before you sign up.
Most of you know that I’m a customer of TradeKing and I like their setup and trading interface quite a bit. Opening an account was relatively painless and funding it was a piece of cake once I linked my bank account, and we all like simple and painless don’t we?
