COSTCO members can get an account bonus through sharebuilder.

I have a question: Can one person get multiple bonuses by opening mulitple accounts?

For example: If I got the $50 IPLANGIFT bonus, can I open a new account and get the $40 holiday bonus?

Also: $30 Compass Bank bonus

thx for the post! might have to finally sign up with this company for $45 out the door profit (5.00 for stock purchase/transaction fees)

OK I'm clueless about how sharebuider works.I signed up with the enertainment code for the $50 bonus.I chose the plan Standard - FREE Trial Investing Program get 6 trades free. I put $20 in IMAX and $25 in Disney-I authorized these as non recurring one time payments. I plan on switching to the Basic program to avoid monthly fees.So how does the bonus work?Does it get creditted to my account?
12/17/05 9:45 PM
I signed up with the 50 bonus and deposited 250. Then a few days after signing up I got an email about like account problems. Basically they want me to fax them all sorts of stuff. They said if I don't do it, they just close the account and refund the amount it was funded with. The stock i bought isn't doing so good and other places look to have alot better fees so I'm just gonna let it cancel and refund my 250. There's no potential problem with this right?
