Big List of Free Stocks For New Commission-Free Brokerage Apps (Updated 2021)
Updated with multiple new limited-time promos. I have the strange hobby of trying out new fintech apps while also collecting their sign-up incentives. Here are several different brokerage apps that offer some variation of free stock trades, modern user interface, real-time quotes, and social sharing. Many are structured like a free lottery ticket with a minimum payout – the odds are that you’ll get a stock valued on the lower end of the ranges mentioned, but I have gotten a few big shares like AAPL before the recent split. They all require a referral link, which means I can get some free stocks as well. A couple are offering 2X to 4X their usual bonuses right now.
Open a Webull brokerage account by January 15th and get 2 FREE stocks valued between $2.50 and $250. Make an initial deposit of $100 or more and receive 2 FREE stocks, each valued between $8 and $1600.
WeBull offers free stock trades, free options trades, free crypto trades, and a full-featured brokerage account. This is a limited-time offer, the standard offer is only one free share of stock.
I have done this deal and gotten my free share of stock as promised without issue. See my WeBull review for more details.
Open a Firstrade account and get a free share of stock ($3 to $200 value) right away. Deposit or transfer $100 or more within 30 days of account approval for an additional two free shares of stock. If you deposit by 1/15, you will be entered into a raffle with 10 iPhone 12 winners to be drawn on 1/18. This is a limited-time offer as the usual bonus is only one free share of stock.
Firstrade actually a long-established traditional discount brokerage that offers free stock trades, free options, and free mutual fund trades. There have been bigger past bonuses with $2,000 minimum deposits, but this one requires nothing but a new approved account.
I’ve had a Firstrade account for several years, got a bonus way back when as promised without issue. See my Firstrade review.
Open an M1 Finance account and get $30 after you use a referral link and make an initial deposit of $100 for taxable accounts and $500 for IRAs within 30 days of sign-up, and not withdraw the initial deposit within 30 days. If you are transferring over a sizable portfolio from another brokerage, you can earn much more money with a transfer bonus (see main post). This is a limited-time offer, the standard offer is only $10.
M1 is different in that it actually promotes a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio and it automatically invests and rebalances your contributions according to your chose “pie”. See my M1 Finance post for more details.
I opened my account with no bonus, just wanted to try out their software.
Open a Voyager account and trade $100 of crypto to get $25 in Bitcoin free. Use link above and/or promo code JONA3F at sign-up.
Voyager app offers free crypto trades and allows you to earn interest on cryptocurrencies, including stablecoin.
I have done this deal and gotten my free BTC as promised without issue.
