Update: Added new $200 opening bonus and two new promo codes for free automatic investments. Thanks to all who have contributed in the comments.
Here are some promotion codes for ShareBuilder investment accounts. ShareBuilder is a discount brokerage now owned by the same folks behind Capital One 360. They give out codes for various promotions, and like coupon codes they often work in your account even if you weren’t given the code directly. Sometimes they don’t though, so have reasonable expectations.
Don’t have an account yet? Grab this $50 opening bonus first, all you have to do is deposit $2,000 or more before 9/30/12, and then add the promo codes below afterward. You can often double-dip on codes if you have both a individual account and joint account. Got kids? Get even more by opening up custodial accounts for each of them.
There is also a new $200 bonus for opening a new account with promotion code BONUSJULY and depositing $10,000 or more by 8/6/12. Via FW.
How To Use
To enter the codes into your account, first log in to ShareBuilder, and then go to the Accounts tab > Overview > Profile & Settings > Enter Promotion tab shown below.
In the marked box, enter a code. If it works, you should see a confirmation that says something like:
Thank you for referring ShareBuilder to your friends! Your 2 real-time trades have been credited to your account and are available to use immediately.
