What is the free stock bonus?
With the free stock bonus, we’ll deposit a cash bonus in your account that is equal to two shares randomly selected from the shares Wealthsimple has chosen for this promotion.
The cash bonus will be applied within 7 days after opening and funding your new Wealthsimple Trade account in accordance with the terms and conditions below.
Only customers with an applicable promo code are eligible for the bonus. 1 entry per qualified user.
Which stocks apply?
Wealthsimple selects stocks from among the most popular and highest total value (market capitalization) stocks held and traded on Wealthsimple Trade. Because they are chosen randomly, you may not receive the same stock bonus as others.
The free stock bonus has a value of between CAD$5 and CAD$4500 with an average of CAD$20 and ~90% of clients receiving less than CAD$50 based on the stock value at the time of selection. The free stock bonus is calibrated to these values on a regular basis but remains subject to market movements.
Neither the free stock bonus, the randomly selected share nor identification of a particular security in communications related to this program shall constitute a solicitation of the security or a recommendation to buy, sell or hold the security. Wealthsimple Trade does not provide investment advice and does not hereby recommend any security or transaction. There is no requirement that you purchase the randomly selected share with the Bonus.
How do I claim my free stock?
In order to claim your prize, open and fund a Non-Registered Wealthsimple Trade Account by visiting https://wealthsimple.com/promo/fidoxtradefreestock, enter in the unique promo code provided by Fido, and follow the instructions on how to create an account. There are no fees associated with the creation of a Promotion Account. You must then fund this new account with at least $100, and trade a minimum of $100.
To enter without meeting the funding or trade requirement, type out your name, address, city, province or territory, postal code, telephone number, and a unique and original 100-word or more essay on “My Investing Strategy”, and email it to email@example.com during the Offer Period. You must otherwise be eligible for the promotion. Limit 1 entry per user still applies.
Your cash bonus will be delivered within 7 days after you complete either of the above two steps — and then you can purchase your free stock!
