I opened accounts for P1 and P1 4/29/22. Deposited $501 within a couple days. Neither of our bonuses appeared as of 8/15/22. We did separate support chats and were told they would issue a credit for $150 in each of our accounts. P1’s posted within a couple days. P2’s bonus never posted. Finally did a BBB complaint and P2’s $150 bonus posted yesterday, 9/12/22. I am not impressed with this company, and it’s not just the need to fight for the bonus. The web site and platform are clunky. Not sure how long I have to wait to withdraw the funds and bonus but it isn’t soon enough.

Round #3
03/22/22: closed account
04/20/22: applied and approved
06/08/22: $75 received

I saw DPs from others that they were denied the bonus after churning, but I still decided to try because the previous two times I did it, both the promo code and account type were different. It worked!

Are you saying that the 3rd time around you re-used one of the promo codes? Or that the promo codes were different for all three accounts?

ShawntheShawn

For round #1 and #2, the promo code was TSTVAFVE and I opened the TS Go account. The bonus was $20 per month for 5 months. For round #3, the promo code was TSTVAFYB and I opened the TS Select account (they sunset the TS Go account). The bonus was $75 per month for 2 months. Steve

Anyone else have to go through a bunch of “I agree” statements just to get the app to load again? I felt like I was clicking forever.

Closed previous account Aug 12, 2021 after 5 months of $20 bonuses for maintaining $500 ($100 bonus).
Received an email inviting me back on Nov 16, 2021 (presumably to reopen the old account), subj: “Gadget, come back and trade your way.”

02/26/22 Applied using new email address – all other info the same, except this new account was a “Cash” account, and last one was a “Margin” account. Likely makes no difference, but just FYI. (the account type changes depending on how you answer all the questions on the application)
02/27/22 Received email “Get $150 when you fund your account!”
02/28/22 CASH RECEIVED ACH ($500.00)
04/08/22 TradingView Cash Credit 04/22 ($75.00)
05/10/22 TradingView Cash Credit 05/22 ($75.00)

Seeing the same as HarryTheFirstHarry with the $50 TradeStation Charges each month being applied, then refunded. But, I just looked back at my old statements and they were doing that on my 2021 account too.

Also, I disagree with Dominique about your old account, making sure you can no longer log on means it’s closed. I can still log into my old account, no problem. In the desktop login, my account shows as “Margin – Closed” when I view the old transactions under Accounts, Equities Accounts, “Trades & Other Transactions”. The newer account shows as “Cash – Active“. Also, if you look at the statements, you stop getting a monthly statement when your account is closed. I’d recommend not pestering support to go above and beyond, and just verify it’s closed by looking at the account yourself. They likely leave your login usable so you can access the info for tax purposes.

I’m zeroing now and hope to close later this week… I probably won’t try again for a while until they change the promo code. Also possibly relevant, I have not done the crypto bonus with them.

Do you have to trade or can you just let the money sit there?

ShawntheShawn

Trade is not required. You can just keep the cash in the account. Matt J

William Charles ,
There is currently also a $40 Swagbucks bonus for TradeStation. I assume that they stack.

Bertrand

I don’t think they stack. I tried to do it a few months ago but noticed that if you go through Swagbucks a Swagbucks-specific code is auto-populated on your application which is different than the standard offer code (see also here: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/tradestation-deposit-500-earn-150-bonus/#comment-1326270). I replaced the Swagbucks code with the standard code and got the $150 bonus but did not get the SB bonus.

can we close the account after getting the bonus?

ShawntheShawn

Yes, make sure you have a balance of zero first. howard

Adding another dp that this can successfully be churned.

Great to hear. I have done the $50 and $100 bonuses before, so I will try this one on my next churn attempt. I will use a different email address and make sure my previous account was fully closed before trying to open another account.

Maybe others had difficulty churning because their previous accounts were not fully closed before they opened another one. If you are still able to login to your account after they tell you they’ve closed your account, try contacting them again to close your account. Your account is only fully closed if you can no longer login to it.

Linking the same bank account was no problem last time around. I know Tradestation is kind of picky with what accounts they will allow you to link to their platform. I know Cap One and Schwab checking work, what other banks work with Tradestation? Memory Bank for instance does not work.

Has anyone successfully churned this account or done both the equities and crypto bonuses? Getting denied by a representative

Chris

I haven’t done the crypto, but can confirm the equity churn.

Chris Can you please provide your timeline for your first and second churns for the equity account? TIA

I think I closed it around October and reopened in January.

Crypto bonus depends on the State you are in. In my State, they are not registered / authorized to do Crypto, so I can not sign up. (However, I did get the bonus on the brokerage account). I know, because I called them to ask why I can not open a Crypto account and that is what they told me. Davis
