Did you know that National Friendship Day was August 3nd? Since 1935, Congress declared the first Sunday in August to be National Friendship Day.
I didn’t, but that’s because my friends never told me! (I just lobbed a softball, someone crush it out of the park already…)
Well, my friends at TradeKing  (har har, I think they just like my money) just sent me an email telling me about a promotion where if you refer a friend to TradeKing, both of you get $50.
Here are the important details of the $50 referral promotion:
- It must be a new account opened between July 31st and August 31st,
- The referred friend has to fund their account with at least $1,000 within 30 days,
- The referred friend has to execute at least one trade (trades are $4.95 a piece) within 180 days of opening the account,
- The funds must remain in the account for at least 180 days.
Is this a good deal? If you don’t have a TradeKing account and have been thinking about it, now’s a good time to do it. If you just want the money, trades are $4.95 a piece so you’re talking a round-trip cost of $9.90, plus your trade is at risk in the market, for a promo of $40.10 on a $1,000 six-month deposit (puts the interest APY, if you like to think in those terms, at ~8%+ APY).
Want in? Shoot me an email with this contact form  and I’ll send you a referral. (or directly email me at: )
