This 2017 Cash Bonus Offer (“Offer”) is valid for an eligible Scottrade® account (“Registered Account”) which is in good standing, registered for this Offer and funded with at least $25,000.00 in cash or eligible securities (“Eligible Funds”) within 60 days of the Registration Date (“Funding Period”). “Registration Date” is the date the eligible Account is registered. Eligible Account may be registered online or through your local Scottrade branch. Registering an eligible account for this Offer will terminate any previous registration for any other free trades or cash bonus offer. Registration for this offer will render a secondary registration for other offers on the same account invalid.

“Net Deposits” are Eligible Funds deposited into the Registered Account during the Funding Period, minus Eligible Funds withdrawn from the Registered Account during the Funding Period. Net Deposits of $1 million or more will receive $2,500 cash bonus; $500,000-$999,999 will receive $1,000 cash bonus; $250,000-$499,999 will receive $600 cash bonus; $100,000-$249,999 will receive $300 cash bonus; $50,000-$99,999 will receive $200 cash bonus; and $25,000-$49,999 will receive $100 cash bonus. Eligible Funds must come from sources external to Scottrade, and will be valued as of the date received by Scottrade. You must maintain in the Registered Account an amount (minus trading and market volatility losses) equal to the sum of the balance of the Registered Account on the Registration Date, plus the amount of Net Deposits on which Scottrade paid you a cash bonus, at all times for at least one year after the Registration Date, or Scottrade may, in its sole and absolute discretion, charge the account for the cost of the cash awarded to the account. Failure to maintain the required eligible funds account balance for the required period revokes eligibility for this Offer. This is a one-time only offer and Scottrade has no obligation, and you have no right, to receive any such offer, or similar offers, in the future. Please allow up to seven (7) business days from the date of a qualifying deposit for the benefits of this Offer to be available in the Registered Account.

This 700 Free Trades Offer (“Offer”) is valid for one eligible Scottrade® account (“Registered Account”) registered in the name of a new, non-existing client, in good standing, registered for this Offer and funded with at least Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00) in cash or eligible securities (“Eligible Funds”) within 60 days of the Registration Date (“Funding Period”). The Eligible Account must be registered online or through your local Scottrade branch at the time of opening. Registering an eligible account for this Offer will terminate any previous registration for any other offer. Registering an eligible account for this offer will render a secondary registration for the same account, ineligible. “Registration Date” is the date the eligible Account is registered.

Eligible Funds must come from sources external to Scottrade, and will be valued as of the date received by Scottrade. You must maintain in the Registered Account an amount (minus trading and market volatility losses) equal to at least Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00) in cash or eligible securities at all times for at least one year (“Required Period”) after the Registration Date, or Scottrade may charge back any unqualified benefits, including a charge back of any and all standard commissions on any trades which were subject to this Offer, and may charge standard rate commissions on any future trades which occur thereafter. If the account balance or any portion thereof is withdrawn or transferred to a non-Scottrade account prior to the end of the required period, Scottrade may, in its sole and absolute discretion, charge back to you any commission discounts or other reduced rates made pursuant to this offer. Failure to maintain the required eligible funds account balance for the required period revokes eligibility for this Offer. This is a one-time only offer and Scottrade has no obligation, and you have no right, to receive any such offer, or similar offers, in the future. “Net Deposits” are Eligible Funds deposited into the Registered Account during the Funding Period, minus Eligible Funds withdrawn from the Registered Account during the Funding Period.

Unused trades expire after 90 days of registration. Please allow up to three (3) business days from the date of a qualifying deposit for the benefits of this Offer to be available in the Registered Account. You will not receive any compensation for unused commission-free trades. Only orders for equities priced above $1, exchange-traded funds or options orders that are placed in Eligible Accounts on-line through Scottrade.com, Scottrade trading platforms and/or Scottrade Mobile are eligible for this Free Trades Award Offer. Offer not valid for transactions in Equity Index Options. All other fees and costs, including options per-contract, exercise, assignment and any applicable regulatory fees, still apply, including but not limited to commissions and fees charged for trades in securities priced below $1.
