In Feb 2009, I posted the special deal by Costco and INGDirect to invoke the interest of automatic stock investing by giving away upto $90 for new account signups with condition apply. I am one among many who benefited from the deal and shared my experience.
That offer is no longer valid anymore. Currently, they announced a renewed offer which gives upto $60 and 25% rebate for quaterly transactions for executive members for signup. It gives $55 + 10% rebate for Gold star and Business members. According to sharebuilder, one can get upto $120 max from this deal.
How come $120?
New account signup - $60. $15 rebate of 3 month transaction * 4 quaters = $60 – Total $120.
