Free TD Ameritrade Investools Promotion
If you’re just getting started as an investor, there is little that can trump a good education. TD Ameritrade is offering you FREE access to its Investing Foundation Program via Investools when you open an account with $2,000 or more. This program is a $499 value, and you can get it for free!
This educational package includes access to in-depth online courses and coaching for 90 days. You can also participate in the Investor Toolbox and community for free for 90 days. One of the most valuable perks of this program, though, is the fact that you can get one-on-one coaching for 30 days. The opportunity to work with a knowledgeable investing coach can benefit you for years to come.
You can also receive discounts on even more advanced tools and resources from Investools with this offer.
You need to open a new individual or joint TD Ameritrade account and fund it within 60 days in order to take advantage of this offer.
It’s important to note that the funding must come from outside TD Ameritrade, so even though you can be an existing customer and still take advantage of this offer, you need to open a new account and fund it with “new” money. (Make sure to read the fine print on the TD Ameritrade website.)
