This is usually $50 and just noticed it's $200 now.  There was no indication of how long this rate would last.  If you log on, you should see the promo on your main page.

It'll send your friend an email to join, and they get a better promo than the standard one too.  I.e. $500 for 100k xfer or $1000 for 250k xfer (usually only $300/$600).

btw, I've done the $50 promo twice before.  The first time they said I didn't get it because my friend had a closed account with them before (i.e. he was not "new").  My friend still got his xfer bonus though.  The second time I got it, but also got a 1099-MISC for the $50.

Allright! Thanks. The wife has shares over at Merrill/BofA that just earned the bonus.

Where did you see this? I went to Client Services>Refer a Friend and all I see is the 20 free trades for use within 90 days of funding reward.

That's the right place. Then you fill in friend's name, email and there's a dropdown for reward selection, either cash or trades.

Just checked the fine print - says cash election is not available for IRAs and tax-exempt accounts, I guess because they can't do a 1099 for it. Try a taxable account if you have one.

To clarify: your account can't be an ira, but your friend's account can be either kind.

One per customer per lifetime, includes having gotten anything from a company swallowed up such as Waterhouse. Dicey to deal with, fined me $100 for its mistake.
