One bonus per customer's lifetime. New accounts only, per individualized e-mail back from Customer Service.
... action postpone until someone can find a way to go from main site to http://www.sharebuilder.com/em/june200 w/o external link
Surprised not being discussed over at the 'other' deal site ...
NO Email Needed. Mission Accomplished !
Found a way out that will likely work for many. Very verbose steps:
1. Go to OP's deal link. Then click on RHS on invest & get $200 bonus link. From there instead of applying, first initiate online chat with sharebuilder CSR. You need to do this for chat as normal site only has has phone/email options as far as I could see
2. tell you are exploring brokerages as you are interested in investing $10K or more and checking if any promotions are active that you can use, as many other brokerages have $200 to $300 deals going on (vary the theme) for large investments
3. they may say none or refer you to $100 or $50 promos
4. slip in the deal link from OP to ask if this is applicable that you found elsewhere
5. most likely they will say yes right away, or check internally and come back to say yes go ahead!
6. ask if you can have them create a reference number of this chat to reference in case of any issues.
7. Note this number, format is SB-XXXXXXXX where X's are an 8 digit #. Save PDF of the chat.
8. apply from the OP's link fearlessly !
The last step #6 is Crucial, #2 is essential in lieu of just cold asking if 200 promo link works as MrMBS did.
So in 4 2 brand new accts w/no prior history, opened both accts mid-late last week, already got $200/each )
After acct opening got quick confirmation of the promo being active on the account as well. In fact got twice, and then notification on deposit
Maybe they are desperate...
Maybe you do not even need the chat...
Maybe it will all work out as is...
But why take a chance....
This was easy 200/acct
Everyone doing same steps may make them suspicious once each chat person gets multiples of these so vary the theme! After all I did not have to say anything untrue, did invest $10k and may even keep the acct now that they were so straight forward and use them for the intended purpose to trade away ...
Green to ShareBuilder ! Thanks to OP !!
Are they identifying/matching the bonus by email id?
