RealtyShares Sign-Up Bonus Promo Code


Update. RealtyShares has a referral program that offers a new customer who is referred by an existing client a $100 gift card after linking a bank account. I am no longer available to provide referrals as I have maxed out the limit, but you may be able to find a referral from existing client elsewhere.

Alternatively, using this link and using the code JONATHANPING25 will get you a free $25 to start.

Be sure to follow the terms and conditions and reply to your bank link confirmation e-mail with the proper promo code:

In order to receive $25 sign up bonus, user must register, connect a bank account, and use the promocode provided in the email they received about the program. Payouts to user will be within 30 days via your linked bank account. RealtyShares reserves the right to stop or modify the referral program at its discretion at any time.


  1. Do you have to be an accredited investor just to get the bonus?

    • I believe so, if I recall you will answer an online questionnaire to make sure you satisfy the accredited definitions. As far as I know, their investments are currently only available to accredited investors and they are not taking advantage of the new crowdfunding rules that open things up to all investors.

      • Stuart Weissman says:

        Hey Jonathon. I just signed up and sent in your referral code. Just curious. Did they call you and if so, how painful was the call?

        • Thanks! They never called me or hard-sold me on anything.

          • Stuart Weissman says:

            Fantastic. So it looks like another Web-based company which is doomed to fail from paying too much to gain clients. I could tell you a funny story about TravelZoo some time. Let’s just say they paid me $1600 for 10 email addresses in the early days. Keep them coming Jonathon. You are like my financial Doppelganger.

          • Well, I suspect it is hard to get the attention of accredited investors, so perhaps this tactic will work, especially if they really need to balance their supply and demand between deals and investors.

            I cashed in some TravelZoo shares back in the day as well. I couldn’t believe it when they actually arrived. πŸ˜‰

  2. just signed up using your link, hopefully I will get $100

    • Thanks!

      • I replied back with your promo code and have not heard back yet. Do you know how long it normally takes?

        • Honestly, I don’t recall if I ever heard back. The $100 just showed up in my bank account a few weeks later. I get the feeling that the deposits are done in a manual manner. I would definitely follow-up with them with a reminder that you have satisfied your end of the terms, if you don’t see the money in 30 days.

          The 30 days is probably picked because you need to wait out a SEC-mandated 30-day cooling off period before investing in any deal. So just about when you might forget about the site, you now have a $100 reminder to check back in πŸ™‚

  3. Great site! Found this info about accredited investors on Wiki…not sure how accurate it is but thought it might be helpful to post.

    United States

    In the United States, to be considered an accredited investor, one must have a net worth of at least one million US dollars, excluding the value of one’s primary residence, or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 combined income if married) and have the expectation to make the same amount this year.”[9]

    The federal securities laws define the term accredited investor in Rule 501 of Regulation D and as amended by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act as:

    a bank, insurance company, registered investment company, business development company, or small business investment company;
    an employee benefit plan, within the meaning of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, if a bank, insurance company, or registered investment adviser makes the investment decisions, or if the plan has total assets in excess of $5 million;
    a charitable organization, corporation, or partnership with assets exceeding $5 million;
    a director, executive officer, or general partner of the company selling the securities;
    a business in which all the equity owners are accredited investors;
    a natural person who has individual net worth, or joint net worth with the person’s spouse, that exceeds $1 million at the time of the purchase, or has assets under management of $1 million or above, excluding the value of their primary residence;[10][11]
    a natural person with income exceeding $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000 for those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income level in the current year;[12] or
    a trust with assets in excess of $5 million, not formed to acquire the securities offered, whose purchases a sophisticated person makes.”[9]

  4. Interesting, I signed up yesterday – and followed directions and today – I received an e-mail from the company saying they want to give me an opportunity to waive the 30 days and start investing right away – but I have to fill out a suitability questionnaire through a hyperlink they provided?

    • Thanks for sharing, that is interesting as I don’t recall being offered such an option.

      • I received an email asking to fill out a suitabilty questionnaire as well

      • I filled in the questionnaire, which was then vetted by some company. A guy from Realtyshares then called and did a quick interview. That ended my cooling-off period within a day of signing up.
        No word or affirmative email on the bonus, though.

  5. Thanks a lot Johathan! I received this after opening the account and link my bank account.

    To complete your application, please fill out the information in this document. We’re excited to help you begin investing with us!

    Do we need to complete the survey?

    Thank you.

  6. They also made two small deposits (totaling less than $1) to my bank account to validate the account probably. Also not heard back on the bonus though….

  7. Received my $100 today :).
    Thank you, Joanathan.

  8. $100 showed up my account sometime on 4/29. My wife said, “What is that?” She doesn’t really understand my explanation. She said it’s too good to be true. If it didn’t actually exist in my account, I would be saying the same thing. Thanks Jonathan.
