Free Money to Try Some Financial Products

By glblguy

Found the following offers that will get you some free money (no affiliate links):

Free $50 from Sharebuilder with offer code: ym50

I signed up for a Sharebuilder account and just as recommended by Hustler $$$ Blog purchased 1 share of a less than $1 stock. Received the confirmation email this morning stating that I qualified and that I will receive my $50 Account Bonus within 4-6 weeks. I’ll keep you posted on what happens and when I receive it.

Free $100 from Citibank

I also signed up for the Citibank checking account. Again, received the confirmation this morning that my application was approved. Again, will let you know how it works out and when I receive my $100. I moved $10 into the account.

Here’s the terms and conditions from Citibank’s web site:

Terms and Conditions:

• To receive this offer you must apply for and open a new Ultimate Savings Account by 08/31/2007. $100 will be credited to your Ultimate Savings Account within 90 days following your first statement cycle. Account must be in good standing at the time of the $100 credit.

• All accounts are subject to approval. Customer must be a citizen or resident alien of the United States (U.S.) with a valid U.S. taxpayer identification number. The amount of any bonus payment will be reported to the IRS as interest earned in the year credited. Persons under 18 years of age are not eligible. Offer may be modified or withdrawn at any time without notice and is not transferable.

I plan to use the proceeds to pay off some debt!

    Hey I tried the sharebuilder thing too so I am waiting on that. I could not do the citibank checking account one because it says you have to be a citizen or resident alien. That upset me.

    Hi Lulu, thanks for visiting! If you don’t mind, keep me posted on when you get your $50.

    re: citibank, I think the reason is that the $100 is taxable maybe? If you aren’t a citizen or resident alien, can they tax your income?

    How did it work out with the Citibank transfer did you get your $100 in the end?
