Bonus Stock Giveaway
In addition to the Wealthsimple Tax add-on features outlined above, we’ll deposit a cash bonus (the Bonus) in your Wealthsimple Trade account that is equal to one share randomly selected from the shares Wealthsimple has chosen for this program.
The Bonus will be applied within 30 days of (i) purchasing the Wealthsimple Tax add-on features; and (ii) opening (or already having) a non-registered Wealthsimple Trade Account, all in accordance with the terms and conditions at the below.
Only one stock reward per Wealthsimple client. Offer not available in Quebec. Instead, Quebec residents that otherwise meet the requirements will receive a flat $10 bonus in their non-registered Wealthsimple Trade account. This is equal to the average Bonus amount.
Which stocks apply?
Wealthsimple selects shares from eleven companies with share values ranging from $1-$500 CAD, limited to companies that are widely held among Wealthsimple Trade accounts.
There is an approximately 62% chance of the Bonus having a value between $1 and $10, 37% chance of the Bonus having a value between $10 and $50 and a 1% chance of the share price being $50-$500 based on the price of the shares at the time of their selection.
