$50 Sharebuilder Bonus for Account Holders!

ShareBuilder-Welcome page

Do you have a ShareBuilder account? I have talked about them in the past as one of my favorite programs, and now here is another great reason!

If you are new, click here to read my previous post on Sharebuilder and a code for $50 for new customers.

For the new year, we are once again being motivated to get our finances in order. And, ShareBuilder is offering us a very nice incentive so that we will get our investment accounts in order.

Right now, they will give you a $50 bonus for transferring $500 or more from a competitive brokerage account. My family currently has money sitting in a Money Market account at Fidelity while we are trying to contemplate where to invest it.

So, I plan to begin the process to move that over to ShareBuilder. Not only will I receive this wonderful extra $50, but I will also be able to invest in the account for much less than I get charged elsewhere. So, it is a win/win for me.

Interested in participating in this promotion, too? Here are the details:

  • Click here to log into your account or sign up for a new account ( available on Individual, Joint and Custodial Accounts )
  • Fill out the Account Transfer Form
  • Activate your $50 bonus ... please check their website for offer code
  • Mail or fax copy of your most recent investment to ShareBuilder

As always, I will post a link to this post under my Bank Offers webpage, so you can come back to it anytime.

Will they let you cancel accounts and re-apply in the future for the promo offers?

Not sure. But, to close an account, you would have to sell your stock, etc.

Carrie -

I just printed out the form to transfer money from another brokerage to Sharebuilder. I'm just wondering where do you input the code for $50? Is this after sharebuilder receives your money or is there something I am missing here. Thanks so much!

Does anyone have a current code? I've already opened accounts for my husband and myself. Now I'd like to open accounts for my children. Thanks!
