  1. Brian says

    A few offers include covering transfer fees in addition to the bonus. Even if an offer doesn’t include that, it’s worth contacting the custodian and asking if they’ll do that too. I have had success (and failure) doing that. Sometimes like with TD Ameritrade they might direct you to another offer that has it.

  2. Robert says

    E*TRADE offers $2500 for $1MM, vs. $600 in your table. See the fineprint on Footnote 1 below, even though their main advertisement does only show up to $600.

  3. gavinmac says

    I sent a secure message to Schwab also. They had a rep call me. He said they had no active bonuses but that he could put in an “exception” for me to get me the expired IRA bonus. He also offered me a similar bonus for deposit to a brokerage account. It seems that calling or sending secured messages to inquire about bonuses can be productive.

  4. gavinmac says

    The TD Ameritrade bonus says it is for new accounts. I sent them a secure message asking if they had any bonus promotions for deposits into existing accounts, and it seems they do, maybe they are not published.

  5. rpsandiego says

    I’m just wondering if you have a list of ACAT bonuses from different brokerages, e.g. Sharebuilder offers $100, Tradeking reimburses up to $150. Fidelity reimburses up to $100, etc.
