Tradeking
Use Promo code: FREE1000

Open a new TradeKing account by December 31, 2014 with at least $10,000 and you’ll get $1,000 in free trade commission.

A couple of DDFers like ckmk47, yuneeq, and myself are fans. They have very good reviews from Smart Money and Barrons.


New customers are eligible for this special offer after opening a TradeKing account with a minimum of $10,000. You must apply for the free trade commission offer by inputting promotion code FREE1000 when opening the account. New accounts receive $1,000 in commission credit for equity, ETF and option trades executed within 60 days of funding the new account. The commission credit takes one business day from the funding date to be applied. To qualify for this offer, new accounts must be opened by 12/31/2014 and funded with $10,000 or more within 30 days of account opening. Commission credit covers equity, ETF and option orders including the per contract commission. Exercise and assignment fees still apply. You will not receive cash compensation for any unused free trade commissions. Offer is not transferable or valid in conjunction with any other offer. Open to US residents only and excludes employees of TradeKing Group, Inc. or its affiliates, current TradeKing, LLC account holders and new account holders who have maintained an account with TradeKing, LLC during the last 30 days. TradeKing can modify or discontinue this offer at anytime without notice. The minimum funds of $10,000 must remain in the account (minus any trading losses) for a minimum of 6 months or TradeKing may charge the account for the cost of the cash awarded to the account. Offer is valid for only one account per customer. Other restrictions may apply. This is not an offer or solicitation in any jurisdiction where we are not authorized to do business.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

You do not get $1000. You get up to $1000 in free trades. A stock trade is $4.95. So you can make 202 stock trades without paying any commision.

"Fund your account with $10,000 or more within 30 days of opening."
"Commission credits are good for 60 days from award date".

I'm assuming that means you have 30 days to fund the account. Once you meet the criteria, you have 60 days to use. If correct, thats a pretty significant limitation. I don't think to many of us DDFers are making 100 trades a month. Option trades have an additional $.65 fee per contract, if your into that.
