Continental OnePass members who open a ShareBuilder account for the first time can earn up to 2,000 bonus miles after your first stock purchase. ShareBuilder features three automatic investment programs, which can be scheduled on a weekly or monthly basis. The Basic program has no monthly fee and automatic investments are $4 per investment. The Standard program has a $12 monthly fee and six investments are included in the plan — each additional stock purchase is $2. The Advantage Pricing Program has a $20 monthly fee and includes 20 investments per month with additional purchases priced at $1 per investment. With all three plans, you can make real-time and options trades, open an IRA or ESA account and there is no account minimum.
If you subscribe to an investing program with the online brokerage for three consecutive months, you will receive a free iPod shuffle when you sign up for the Advantage Pricing Program or $50 in cash for subscribing to the Standard Pricing Program. You will also earn 175 miles each month you subscribe to either the Standard or Advantage pricing program. The bonus offer of the iPod or cash is available through Dec. 31, 2007.
