Thanks for posting. I do wish they were offering up to "1000K" ($1M) instead of just $1000...

This is the worst brokerage I've ever used. Do a search and see about them closing your account because they feel like it. Then after that they said default option is they send you your shares .. nope they sold them at current cost which was option #2. Thanks for making me pay unwanted taxes.

Not sure why the thumbs down. Been waiting for this since the last deal expired in April. This is a good deal if you :

a) Have over 100k in an IRA in another brokerage (e.g. Vanguard, Fidelity etc)
b) Have BOA cash rewards card - gives 3% back on online purchases.

Moving 100k in IRA assets to MerrillEdge will allow you to qualify for Platinum Honors status, making the cash rewards card, a 5.25% cashback card (up to $2500 per quarter).

To clarify, so if you spend more than $2500 per quarter, You only earn a fixed one percent on anything above that amount for the quarter?

Check out the full T&C here:

https://promo.bankofamerica.com/m...lsrc=aw.ds

Quote :
Bonus Category Cap: Grocery store, wholesale club and Choice Category Net Purchases earn bonus cash rewards on the first $2,500
of combined Net Purchases made each calendar quarter. Once the $2,500 quarterly limit is reached, additional Net Purchases will earn
base cash rewards of 1%
So in short, yes after $2,500 it will revert back to the base 1% CB. Unless of course you qualified for platinum honors in which case you get a 75% boost on the base 1% = 1.75%.

Looking to open an investment account, and comparing promotions. This is a good cash bonus offer, especially with a Bank of America Preferred Rewards program. However, it says that "This limited time offer is valid only for Trader Expo attendees". How will they validate that? What are the chances that they may decline your cash bonus if you are not a Trader Expo attendee?

Great, thanks!! I will do the same too. Already a Bank of America customer - presume the setting up the Investment account would be straight-forward?
