Fidelity New Account Bonus Offer

Even for some current Fidelity members, there is a pretty sweet new account bonus offer. You only need to deposit $50 to earn it, there is no requirement for a direct deposit, and there are no fees on the accounts. Let's look at the details.

I made my deposit on 10/26 and got my bonus on 11/16, a year after I signed up for a cash account. The deposit and bonus triggering dates were the same for my wife's account.

Fidelity has a new account bonus offer.

If you deposit $50 within 15 days, you will get a $100 bonus. Use the code to get the discount.

This offer is valid for new or existing Fidelity customers who open and fund a new, eligible Fidelity account with a minimum of $50 by October 18, 2021. Only one account per individual is allowed.

Offer terms

If you open a new kind of account and fund it, it will be eligible for current members. Doctor of Credit readers can open a second account and get a bonus. Your mileage may be different there. Here are some of the terms.

You can register for the offer by opening a Fidelity account after October 18, 2021.
The account must be opened through the offer link.
To register for the offer, use the offer code.
The account should be funded with a minimum of $50 from an external source.
The qualification period is 15 calendar days after account opening and the net deposit must be at least $50.
An email will be sent to the email address you provided during the account opening process after the eligible account has been established in good order.
Fidelity accounts that are eligible include The Fidelity Account, Fidelity Cash Management Account, and Fidelity traditional IRA. No other accounts are eligible for this offer.
If you want to contribute to the IRA, you will need to have earned income equal to the IRA contribution you make for 2021. The bonus award is not given to individuals who max out their contribution. If an individual has no earned income, they won't be eligible to make contributions to the traditional IRA or theRoth IRA and won't be eligible for the bonus award.
The bonus award must be maintained in the account for at least 90 days from the date on which it is credited to the account. Fidelity may charge accounts that don't comply with the requirement.

The bonus award will be deposited to the eligible account in 10 days.

Where to find the code?

When I did it for my wife, the code auto populated but I didn't see where it was hiding. There is a personal information page.

Final thoughts on Fidelity New Account Bonus.

I have done Fidelity bonuses before and they have been easy to post. This is easy and Fidelity offers don't come around often, so jump on this one. Current members like me are eligible for this one. This is a $100 home run because of the lack of fees, hoops to jump through or cancellation penalties.

The DoC was the winner.
