TradeKing “$50 Signing Bonus” Promotion

Update: This promotion has now ended.

I don’t often mention promotions on the blog, but I thought I’d share this one because it’s for a company my wife and I actually use: TradeKing. (You can see my TradeKing review here.)

As of now through the end of the month, if you open a TradeKing account and fund it with a minimum of $2,500, you’ll receive a $50 bonus. Obviously, $50 isn’t a huge sum, but if you were already looking to open an IRA or regular brokerage account, a little free money doesn’t hurt. 🙂

Important note: Apparently you have to click on one of the special promotional links in order to get the bonus. (For RSS subscribers: The links are javascript, so you’ll probably have to click through to the post to see them.) Like this one:

Full disclosure: If you click through from one of my links and open an account, I receive a commission. (Though it’s not as big as your $50 bonus. 😉 )
