Deal has now expired, view more brokerage bonuses by clicking here

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Ellevest is offering a bonus of $117 to new customers that enter the promo code HBD117 when they sign up (PROMO CODE entry is on the page just before linking your bank account. Code Entry is bottom left of the display showing your initial and recurring deposit amounts just before linking your bank account.).
    • Clients who enroll and make their first deposit to their non-retirement account will receive $117 added to their highest-priority goal in their Ellevest account
    • Clients who enroll and make their first deposit to their retirement account will receive a $117 Amazon gift card

The Fine Print

  • 11/7 only (The offer expires at 11:59 pm ET)

Our Verdict

This is much better than the standard $20 referral bonus they offer (read that post for more information regarding Ellevest), although they did have a $50 referral bonus in the past. For more brokerage bonuses read this post.

Interested as well. Guessing no, since they verify ID…

signed up with code and $100 deposit. Wondering if there is a ETF.

From what I can tell, they take a mix of Vanguard funds and create their own customized fund for you. It’s a target date fund with a different brand slapped on the hood.

I am not even sure whether OP is wondering about Exchange Traded Funds…or Early Termination Fee.

sorry for the confusion, I was talking about early termination fee.

I am new to online investing. Not sure where to start. Any pointers ? Much appreciated.

That’s a mighty broad question. Maybe start with the sidebar material about investing in the personalfinance subreddit.

Hit up r/WallStreetBets they’ll give you the crash course on option trading.

Was there a minimum deposit amount required? I set a pretty low initial deposit but see the $117 + my initial deposit amount as pending now so i think im in the clear

Ah. I opened with $0 initial deposit and setup a $1 autosave. I don’t see any pending $117 in my account. I did apply the code and saw $117 would be applied though.

NVM: I logged out then back in and see the $117 pending.

BG

I didn’t see one anywhere. I deposited a mere $10 and it’s now showing the “Ellevest Credit Pending” for $117 as well, so we should be good. I’m taking a screenshot of it now just in case, but not worried.

Sounds like you can get both of these?

Greg
Greg

No you cannot. See my comment above. using the referral code locks you in to the $20 offer and the 117 becomes inaccessible

RAM

they ask the promo after entering your job info, when asking for the amount of initial deposit.
I set an initial deposit of $1 and quarterly deposit of $0.
Opened a checking account with them
Connected my bank through secure connection and now my $117 pending has appeared:

Ellevest Credit Pending $117.00
Estimated complete: Up to 90 days after funding your goal

Do you need to provide information such as SSN when opening the account? How easy is it to close the account ? is there any fee to close the account?

Prologer

Yes, SSN is required.
Does anyone know, if they want to send drivers license or if they just check the identity online?

Jonathan
Jonathan

No need to supply a drivers license. Identity was just instantly checked for me online after entering my SSN.

lenin1991
lenin1991

SSN is required, since they’re investing the funds.

No fee to close or minimums required.

nick

do they have acc transfer or closure fees?

Used $200 for initial deposit and I am seeing the $117 in pending deposits as well.

Please please be aware of the tax headache this caused for me and others William Charles @gadgetgeek

IS250 They put my investments in some offshore Bahamas LLP and I had to fill out huge forms complicating it. I’d have to look exactly back at it, but it does not import with TurboTax.

Gadget 🕵️

Dan - Legal Bank Robber I think that was Swell Investing your thinking of. Ellevest has been a huge pain in the ass to withdraw. They leave the money pending forever, and then when you go to withdraw it can take weeks.

However, my SO did not have this issue… so I think it’s only happening to people who had a lot of referrals.

Dan - Legal Bank Robber

You’re correct

Dan, could you tell us what forms they sent you which made the tax returns complicated? I presume they did not send you a 1099-DIV.

Edit : NM, I see it answered below. William, please feel free to delete this.

Care to elaborate?

The good news with all this fresh money coming in they will have enough money to pay our referral bonuses they owe us!!! Withdrawal in progress, in 3 – 2 – 1. 🚀

where should i enter promo code HBD117? it is confusing. gave my details .. got an email confirmation and asking for more details .. including bank and deposit. but no place to enter promo code.

Matt

hidden field called “have a code?” in bank funding screens.

Jorge Ramos

When you start with your personal info > Deposit Set up page at the lower part it says: Have a code? click and enter there.

got it.. after agreeing to their terms

Same thing happened to me John, I sent them a message and made a deposit to see if they will credit me anyways.

Mr Blonde

They responded to my message saying they attached the offer and as long as I make a deposit in 90 days I will receive it! I would message them if you opened your account on the 7th.

First I’ve heard of Ellevest. Apparently it’s designed for women. From their about page:

> The supposedly “gender-neutral” investment industry actually defaults to men’s preferences, salaries, career paths, and lifespans (which are generally different from women’s). Not OK.

I think they just #metoo’d a roboadviser.

DP: Created one for my mom who just retired. You enter the code where it asks have a code under the bank funding page which is the last thing you will do when opening the account. Once you enter the code and hit apply it will mention the $117 credit. The $117 credit does show up as pending for 90 days on her account page.

Did the previous offer but closed my account. I don’t see any language on what counts as new customer? What is minimum deposit?

Does this require a hard pull?

Did you try to open an account again? If so, is the $117 bonus pending?
