If you’re in the market for a new brokerage account, TradeKing is offering a $100 bonus for opening a new account, funding it with at least $2500, and making three trades. This offer is good throughout the month of August.
It’s also worth noting that this deal qualifies for TradeKing’s offer of refunding $150 in transfer fees if you’d like to move your investments over from another broker. To get your refund, simply open an account, fill out the account transfer form, and then submit the transfer reimbursement form.
In case you’re not familiar with TradeKing, they’re widely considered to be one of the best online brokers, having been repeatedly named #1 in customer service by Smart Money, and having also been ranked the #1 brokerage for long-term investors by Barron’s. In terms of price structure, they offer $4.95 flat-rate stock (and ETF) trades with no account minimums and no inactivity fees.
