$500 Reward for New Brokerage Accounts at OptionsXpress

This is a really great incentive, but time is very short.

If you open a brokerage account at OptionsXpress and fund it by the end of November, keep an average $500 balance for six months, and make one trade, they will deposit another $500 in the account. Now that's worth doing!

Here are the details.

The wording on that page is ambiguous about when funding is needed, so I called them. They did say it needs to be funded immediately to qualify, but they said the funding deadline had been extended to December 1 because November 30 is Sunday. This means you have to do a wire transfer. Might as well go to your bank Friday, just in case.
