I have accounts with many banks, brokers, and online shopping rewards sites, etc., and some of them offer benefits for referring a new customer.

    You can get $55 with sharebuilder through the costco website, and a rebate on fees!

    I am aware of the Sharebuilder incentive, which is available to Costco customers only, and used to use the service. But later gave it up because the cost of using Sharebuilder is quite high. Instead I switched to Zecco.

    Awesome list. I just want to say that I’ve been with Firstrade for two years now and it has been nothing but awesome. They have great rates and awesome customer service. Not that many people have heard of them but trust me, give them a shot, they are well worth it!

    Sun,
    What are the Terms and conditions for opening the OptionsXpress account? Do they have a minimum? Any inactivity fees?

    Pretty cool, I run a business that is along the same lines. If anyone is interested in event tickets, you comparison shop and save a bit and I get a percent or two, but you pay no more than you would at the site we index (e.g. stubhub).

    I used to love sharebuilder but man, the costs are just so high overall, for low amount investors (like myself) it takes huge cuts of my profit even if my stocks do well…
