I just received this email offer from E*Trade: Come back! Get up to $3,000 when you open a new E*TRADE account.
Offer valid for one new E*TRADE Securities retirement accounts and excludes E*TRADE Securities brokerage, E*TRADE Futures, E*TRADE Bank, and E*TRADE Savings Bank accounts. Other restrictions may apply.
Cash credits for eligible deposits or transfers of new funds or securities from accounts outside of E*TRADE will be made as follows: $1,000,000 or more will receive $3,000; $500,000-$999,999 will receive $1,500; $250,000-$499,999 will receive $1,000; $100,000-$249,999 will receive $500; $25,000-$99,999 will receive $200; $5,000-$24,999 will receive $100. Once account deposits reach $5,000, your account will receive $100 within 7 days. An account deposit or deposits totaling $1,000,000 or more will receive $3,000 within 7 days. At the end of the 60-day window, your account will be credited in the aggregate for new funds deposited or transferred into your new enrolled account within one week of the close of that window. So, for example, if you deposit $5,000 when you open your account, you will receive $100 within 7 days and if you have deposited a total of $25,000 at the end of the 60 day window from account opening, you will receive another $100 (for a total of $200). New funds or securities must: be deposited or transferred within 60 days of enrollment in offer, be from accounts outside of E*TRADE, and remain in the account (minus any trading losses) for a minimum of six months or the cash credit may be surrendered. Multiple deposits made to eligible accounts will be aggregated and will receive a credit on a pro-rata basis once the new account has been funded with at least $5,000.
