This is just a quick note to say that ShareBuilder has a new $25 promo code for new account signups. To qualify for the bonus, simply use the following promo code when opening an account with a minimum $25 initial deposit: 25WOFA. Your bonus will be added to your account within 4-6 weeks.
If you’re not familiar with ShareBuilder, they’re an online discount broker that is backed by ING Direct. They have no account minimum (aside from the $25 required to get the bonus), no inactivity fees, and they charge $4/trade for automatic, scheduled investments.
One nice thing about ShareBuilder is that you can invest flat dollar amounts instead of buying a set number of shares. This ability to handle fractional shares makes ShareBuilder a good option for people who want to make automatic stock investments of a set dollar amount instead of buying a set number of shares.
