TD Ameritrade Bonuses For Existing IRA Holders

CTM   |     |   114 posts since 2010

I got an email from TD Ameritrade (not TD Bank) with a bonus offer for existing IRA customers. Bonuses for existing customers are much less common than those for new accounts. The bonuses are also larger than those offered in their retail-facing advertisements for new clients. The email may be targeted, so YMMV.

Text clipped from the email follows (read both sections, italics are mine):


Looking for ways to beat the heat? You’re not going to find it here. Because we’ve got a new offer that can only be described as sweltering.

Check this out: We’ll now give you up to $5,000 when you make a qualifying deposit. We’ll even throw in 90 days of $3.95 trades.

Your hard work has already paid off. We just want to make it even more rewarding for you.

Account must be funded within 60 days of enrollment or your account will be disqualified from this offer. At the close of the 90-day period, your account will revert back to your previous trade commission rate (up to $6.95). Stock plan account transactions are subject to separate commission schedule.
