Interactive Brokers Referral Program $200 Bonus

The Interactive Brokers Trader Referral Program offers current customers a $200 bonus for referring new customers to open an Interactive Brokers online brokerage account.

U.S.-based customers can earn a flat fee of $200 for each new customer that you refer who maintains an active Interactive Brokers account with a balance of at least $10,000 for 1 year.

Non-U.S. customers can earn 30% of commissions for referred accounts for up to $200 per referral.

How To Earn $200 Interactive Brokers Referral Bonus

In order to participate in the IB Trader Referral Program, you must log in to your Account Management and access the Trader Referral section from the Manage Account menu.

Then enter the names and email addresses of your referrals to send them an invitation.

For referring customers in the U.S., each referred new customer must maintain a balance of at least $10,000 for 1 year.

For referring customers outside of the U.S., Interactive Brokers will pay you 30% of commissions for up to $200.

The first payment of $100 will be sent when the referral reaches $333.34 in commissions.

The second payment of $100 will be sent when the referral reaches $666.67 in commissions.

Referred clients must maintain at least $10,000 or USD equivalent in their account.

Payouts are available for up to 1 year from the opening of the referred customer’s account.

No payouts will be made for commissions generated after the first year.

Due to regulatory restrictions, IB can neither accept referral partners from Spain, nor pay referral fees for accounts originating in Spain.

Please note that you cannot participate in both the Trader Referral and IB Financial Advisor programs.

Unfortunately, the Trader Referral Program does not offer an account bonus to the new customers as well, so there is no incentive given to new customers to sign up through a current customer’s referral, but you can always offer to split the $200 bonus with your friends if they open an account using your referral.

Interactive Brokers Partner Referral Program

If you don’t currently have an account with Interactive Brokers, you can still earn up to $200 for referring new customers through the IB Partner Referral Program.

The Interactive Brokers Partner Referral Program allows individuals or entities (customers or non-customers) to refer clients to IB and receive payouts for eligible client referrals.

For instance, if you run an investment blog, you can use the IB Partner Referral Program to earn commissions when you review Interactive Brokers, just like an affiliate program.

    Good luck getting your referral bonus guys!

    I am owed the $200 referral fee since December and have not been paid out. They said they will pay be no later than January, and I have called everyday this week asking for a timeline and explanation and they don’t know when they can pay me. They tell me there are more important things than to pay me out because they don’t have the time, the payment is a “manual process”.
