Targeted offer via email, offer terms can be found here
- Robinhood is sending some existing users an offer to get up to $250 bonus by depositing funds:
- $5 for $100-$499
- $15 for $500-$2,499
- $50 for $2,500-$4,999
- $100 for $5,000-$9,999
- $200 for $10,000+
The Fine Print
- Your cash reward will be based on your net deposits. Net deposits are the total amount of all initiated deposits from May 6-May 19, 2021 minus initiated canceled deposits or withdrawals from May 6-May 26, 2021. Simply: it’s the money you put in minus the money you take out through the above dates.
Corresponding cash rewards will be automatically deposited by June 2, 2021.
- The funds you receive through the deposit match program will be reported as miscellaneous income in your 1099-MISC form. Because of IRS minimum earnings requirements, you may not receive a 1099-MISC form if your deposit-matched funds and any other funds (i.e. stock reward funds) are valued at less than $600.
We saw a similar targeted offer from Robinhood in March. This is a nice bonus for a $10,000 deposit, and the funds just need to remain there for a few weeks. Check your email to see if you were targeted, I’m not sure if this is being sent out widely or with more selective criteria.
