Capital One ShareBuilder is offering the Gift of Stock this holiday season to give your friends or family an investment package that includes a $50 bonus after your first trade.
Updated: Please note that the ShareBuilder Gift of Stock is not the same as the old ING Direct Gift of Stock, which was an actual gift certificate that included a ShareBuilder Gift Card for the new recipient to deposit into their new account upon opening.
The ShareBuilder Gift of Stock is a promotion for opening a new Custodial account, which gives you a $50 bonus after 1 trade.
Check out this ShareBuilder Gift of Stock promotion for more details.
Old ING Direct Gift of Stock Information for Reference Purposes
You can purchase the ING Direct Gift of Stock for $30, and it includes a $50 ShareBuilder gift card as well as free credits and an investment tool, which altogether have a total value of $125 according to ING Direct.
Gift of Stock Includes:
1. $50 ShareBuilder gift card that is redeemable only into a NEW ShareBuilder Individual, Joint, or Custodial account.
2. 5 Automatic Investment Plan credits.
3. The Motley Fool video series: How to Buy the Right Stocks for Your Portfolio.
There is free shipping for this item to the destination of your choice.
If you’re looking for a legitimate gift package for someone who is new to investing, this could be a great deal.
However, there is also currently a ShareBuilder Account Sign-Up Bonus that anyone can qualify for, so there’s really no reason to spend the $30 if your recipient really doesn’t need the video or automatic investment credits. You can just email them this link instead.
Give somebody the Gift of Stock this holiday season to provide them with a $50 ShareBuilder gift card, free credits, and an investment tool.
