TDAmeritrade has partnered with the Starwood Preferred Guest program to offer a travel loyalty related promotion – hotel loyalty reward points as a promotional bonus for a large initial deposit. TDAmeritrade has done these in the past but what’s notable is that the highest tier is at “only” $25,000.
There are three tiers of promotional bonus points:
- 20,000 points for an initial deposit of $25,000.
- 10,000 points for an initial deposit of $10,000.
- 3,000 points for an initial deposit of $2,000.
Unfortunately, IRA and tax-exempt accounts are not eligible and you must keep the account open for at least 9 months. Once you open your account, it’ll take six weeks to get the first half of your bonus. Six months after the first of the points post, the balance will be posted to your account. This offer expires March 31, 2011.
