ShareBuilder's $75 New Account Bonus

Monday, December 26, 2011 - 4:38 PMING DIRECT - Details
ING Direct's ShareBuilder is offering $75 if you open a new ShareBuilder account and make an initial deposit of at least $100 by 12/31/2011. Unlike previous ShareBuilder bonuses, this doesn't appear to require a trade (The $100 Black Friday bonus required 2 trades).

It's important to note that ShareBuilder is ING Direct's brokerage business and not the bank. However, ShareBuilder does have an FDIC Insured cash balance account that can be used to hold money before or between trades. This can be chosen instead of the non-FDIC insured money market fund account.

This bonus is listed on ING Direct's front page and at this ShareBuilder page. Offer code is EXTRA75

Here's the small print of the offer
You must open a new ShareBuilder account and deposit $100 or more to be eligible for this promotion. Initial deposit must be completed by 12/31/11. ING DIRECT Investing will deposit a $75 bonus approximately 4-6 weeks after your first $100 deposit. The $75 bonus offer is available for Individual, Joint and Custodial accounts only. Offer not valid for IRAs or ESAs. The $75 bonus is not available for withdrawal for 120 days after it is awarded to your account. This offer is not valid with any other offers and is non-transferrable. Limit one ShareBuilder account bonus per unique customer or custodial beneficiary. We reserve the right to terminate this offer at any time and to refuse or recover any promotion award if we determine that it was obtained under wrongful or fraudulent circumstances, that inaccurate or incomplete information was provided in opening the account, or that any terms of our Account Agreement have been violated. Offer expires 12/31/11.

Worth noting is the FDIC Insured cash balance account earns (0.50% APY)
interest while the money market fund account does not.
