You must hold them for 30 days. If you sell an eligible ETF within 30 days of purchase, their regular $6.95 online commission fee will apply. Here’s the current list of 10 ETFs:

iShares S&P 500 Index Fund (IVV)
Vanguard Small Cap Growth ETF (VBK)
iShares S&P MidCap 400 Index Fund (IJH)

PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund (DBC)

The list manages to cover most of the basic asset classes, although it’s missing a certain continent called Europe. I’m sure they figure nobody cares about those old and boring countries anyway, especially if you could invest in China again… even though the Emerging Market ETF is already 18% China.
