What are the funding requirements?
Once you've opened your eligible account, you'll need to deposit at least $50 from an outside financial institution into your new Fidelity account within 15 calendar days (qualification period) of registering for the offer. If you registered with the Starter PackSM accounts, then net deposits between the two accounts must total at least $50. Make sure you allow a few days for your funds to deposit.
How do I fund my account?
When you open a new account, you'll be asked how you'd like to fund the account. You have several options, such as mobile check deposit or transferring assets from another brokerage firm. You can also link a bank account to initiate an electronic funds transfer (EFT).
How much time do I have to fund my account?
You have 15 calendar days (qualification period) from registering for the offer to fund your account.
When will I receive the cash reward?
Once the qualification period (15 calendar days) has ended and you have at least $50 in your new Fidelity account, Fidelity will deposit $150 into the account within 10 calendar days. The total time from registering for the offer to receiving the cash reward may take up to 25 calendar days.
Do I have to keep the $150 cash reward at Fidelity once I receive it?
Yes. While you don't need to keep your initial deposit of $50 in the new account for more than the qualification period, you must keep the $150 cash reward (minus any losses related to trading, market volatility, or margin debit balances) in the eligible account for a minimum of 90 calendar days starting from when you receive the reward.
Do I need to pay taxes on the $150 cash reward?
