This week brings a bonus offer from Sharebuilder for new
IRA accounts. The deposit amount required to receive a specific bonus is clearly better than the Scottrade offer I posted last week, especially for people who might want to make a smaller deposit / transfer. Sharebuilder does not refund the transfer fee (if any) charged by the originating broker. The account must be opened by 01/31/2014 and fully funded by 03/31/2014. The bonus should appear by 04/15/2014.
This is the link: ShareBuilder: Move your funds to a ShareBuilder IRA. Get up to $600.
The bonus amounts and required transfer amounts are listed below.
$ 50 - $ 5K < $ 10K
$ 100 - $ 10K < $ 25K
$ 200 - $ 25K < $ 50K
$ 300 - $ 50K < $ 125K
$ 600 - $ 125K+
(I know, the table is slightly wonkish. It is DA auto-formatting, not me. ;-) )
