[Expired. $100 bonus is no longer available.] If you have read my past posts on sign-up bonuses, you probably know that I am a big fan of making easy money with these bonuses. Motif Investing is not only a great place to get started with investing but they also have a very simple $100 bonus for opening an account, funding it, and buying at least one Motif. I just received the sign-up bonus on my account about two weeks ago and would recommend this to everyone since it was a very pain free process and a good return on the time investment.
Motif Investing is basically a brokerage account in which stock trades are able to be performed. They offer individual stock trades for $4.95, which is a competitive rate, but what makes Motif different than normal brokerage accounts is that they allow multiple stocks to be put into a “Motif.” This is best explained in a quote for Motif’s website, “What’s a motif? A motif is a basket of up to 30 stocks or ETFs intelligently weighted to reflect an investment theme, market insight or innovative trend. Choose from one of our professionally built motifs, customize, or design your own. Then buy your motif in just one click.” A Motif costs $9.95 to trade which is an awesome deal if you build a Motif with 30 stocks that you want to invest in. You are able to buy the basket of stocks for $9.95 instead of making 30 individual trades and paying several transaction fees. It’s not a bad idea to keep this account open and use it after you receive the bonus, but this is up to you.
Now for the sign-up bonus details:
- Click through my referral link here. (I will get $100 as well if you meet all the requirements but send me your Paypal info and I’ll send you $50 of my bonus once it posts)
- Fund your account with at least $1000 within 10 days of opening the account.
- Make at least one Motif trade (If you are only opening this account for the bonus then I would suggest buying a US treasury Motif which will have less risk of investment loss. Then sell the Motif the next day in order to further limit your risk.)
- Keep the money in the account for at least 45 days.
- The bonus will post about two months after your meet the requirements, in my experience.
The bonus requirements probably took me about an hour total to complete. This is a pretty good return on investment in my opinion.
Total amount gained from bonus:
- $100: bonus from sign up
- -$9.95 * 2 = -$19.90 from buying and selling the Motif you choose
- +$50: Half of my referral bonus sent to you from Paypal once the bonus posts
- = 130.10 total for an hour of work
Check it out and let me know if you have any questions about the bonus! Enjoy the free money!
