TradeKing Brokerage $50 Bonus for New Accounts
October 29, 2008
TradeKing’s $50 bonus for opening a new account promotion has been extended through the end of next month. TradeKing sent out an email last night talking about how the current economic conditions have effected the volume of trading and that despite the uncertainty in the market they’re seeing a lot of new people trying out their brokerage.
There are other online brokerages offering incentives for opening an account, which shows that a tough economy can sometimes be an opportunity for good companies to grow. As lesser quality competitors struggle and lose customers, the true value of good companies becomes more obvious and it becomes a chance for those quality companies to add customers.
It seems TradeKing may be in this position right now, offering a $50 bonus for people to try out their trading platform and see why SmartMoney magazine choose them as having the best customer service for a discount broker in their annual broker survey. You can read more about pros and cons of the online brokerage in this Trade King review.
Anyhow, the extension of the bonus is good news for procrastinators. If you were thinking about taking advantage of the promotion and hadn’t gotten around to it yet, here is your second chance. The bonus isn’t available directly through their website, you have to use this link to qualify.
