Fidelity is giving away $100 limited time

For opening a new account. I thought I had all the accounts at Fidelity I needed, but a cash management account qualifies as well.
Offer good for current Fido customers too.

Check out the link. Super simple to open/fund an account.

What is the benefit of having the fidelity cash management account over the bank/credit union checking account?

Yes I opened 2 myself. One for DW and one for me.
This was brought up in another thread a few weeks ago which is how I first leaned about it. I opened them both with only $50 each

I never saw the other thread. When there are good offers like this, I think they deserve their own thread so folks like me can find out easier.

Wasn't questioning you posting this at all. Just stating how I found out about it myself. I think it is worth repeating!

No, sorry, I wasnt directing anything derogatory to you, just pointing out how maybe we should break important things out of threads to see the light of day.

LOL. My wife and I flip stuff on eBay all the time. We saw a piece yesterday at a used sporting goods store and we knew we could flip and make $20-$25 on eBay, but we both just felt completely unmotivated.

If one might move their account to Fidelity later and hope to get a better bonus, does getting this $100 bonus work against you? Or does it not matter if you open a cash mgmt account now, and later move an investment account and/or IRA later?

It doesn't matter. $100 rarely matters. It if more like a hassle fee they pay us for moving the mouse cursors...

I just did it. Took me about 5 minutes. That's $1200 an hour.

Was aware of the $100 offer. I was looking to move my WF Advisors account since they stripped away self-directed abilities recently. TD ameritrade, Ally and a couple others offer $2500 to $3000 for transferring 2M or more. I already have several Fidelity accounts and received a bonus 6 years ago for rolling over a 401k. I asked our Fidelity private client rep if Fidelity could offer a similar amount as the competition. He referred me to a colleague and they actually did better than anyone - $3500 for the same transfer amount. It sometimes pays to ask, since Fidelity does not advertise those bonuses at present. I actually wanted to split our holdings and spread some risk, but couldn't pass up the offer, so I just did the deal several weeks ago. It only took 3 days to transfer.

I just noticed that once you get the hundred bucks, you have to leave there for 90 days. You can withdraw your initial 50, though.
