Want a free share of a well known company?
« on: May 16, 2017, 03:12:58 PM »
Hi everyone! I just recently stumbled across this offer on the web and wanted to let everyone here know about it. 

Robinhood is offering a free share of a company (between $3 to $150) to anyone that signs up for the first time for an account with them.  You must use a link in order to claim this offer, if you use my link both you and I will receive a share in a company (valued between $3 and $150).

Heres my link: http://share.robinhood.com/keenanf4

*I would appreciate it if you used my link, I spent a couple of hours researching and finding the appropriate links for this post.  Thank you!

Further Information
覧覧覧

Robinhood is an app based brokerage platform offering $0 commissions and fees.  You can use it on android or IOS, do note that you cannot do trades on a website.  It has been around since December of 2014, is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it has Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) insurance on funds up to $500,000 for securities and cash or $250,000 for cash only.
They are backed by: DST, Index Ventures, Google Ventures, Thrive Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, NEA and Ribbit Capital.

Heres a link to a video that explains what they do: https://youtu.be/bRKkhSpIrzo

One of the first questions I had was whats the catch?  Turns out they just want a wider audience since they are in a growth phase.  They make money from the premium version of their account to allow for margin trading and after hours trading.  Additionally they make some money using the cash and credit balance that your account has.

"With Robinhood Gold, you get up to 2x your buying power and access to after hours trading for as little as $10 per month. This is the only product Robinhood charges you for, and is completely optional. Trading is still commission free.
Additionally, Robinhood earns revenue by collecting interest on the cash and securities in Robinhood accounts, much like a bank collects interest on cash deposits."
From their website: https://support.robinhood.com/hc/en-us/articles/202853769-How-does-Robinhood-make-money-



They do only offer a limited amount of more well known stocks so this is certainly a drawback.  Additionally it is aimed at the millennial with its app only experience.  It is pretty cool to be able to slowly build up a position in well known companies without paying for the trades, which really eat into your margins when you do not have a lot of capital.

Account security
"Robinhood Financial is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), which protects securities customers of its members up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash).

An explanatory brochure is available upon request or at www.sipc.org. Robinhood Financial is an SEC Registered Broker Dealer. For more information on Robinhood Financial, you can visit FINRA Broker Check here.

Robinhood uses bank-level security measures to protect your personal information. Your password, social security number, and other sensitive data are encrypted. Our mobile and web applications communicate securely using SSL and 256-bit encryption.

We do not store your online banking credentials and never will. Your banking credentials are used once to authenticate and verify the account you provide belongs to you.
Within the app, you can securely access your account using Touch ID or a custom pin code."

Free share information:
The average value of the shares they give out is $10
* ~80% chance the stock has a value of $3-$10
* ~18% chance the stock has a value of $10-$50
* ~2% chance the stock has a value of $50-$150
Could get JNJ, AAPL, FB, MSFT and more..


Note:
It took me 5 minutes to signup and I was approved for my free share when I checked the next morning.  You will need your SSN just as with any other brokerage or bank, also I did not link a bank and still received my free share.  I am planning on using this as a fun account to poke around with.  You can also transfer out your shares ($75 to another broker) or you can sell your share (after 2 business days) and transfer out the money for $0 so this is probably the way you want to go if you just want this free share, you do need to wait 30 days until you can withdraw this money however due to it being a promotion.

When I signed up for this I received 1 share of GE valued at $28.16.  Not bad for 5 minutes of work if you ask me.

*I think Mustachians can game the system by just signing up for the free share, a chance at a $150 bonus is pretty cool with zero capital requirements unlike credit card signups or brokerage signups that require an initial investment or spending requirement.

*Please do your own independent research before you make a decision.

Fair enough.  I have heard from a number of people that have used it for longer than a year and love it.  I do want to note that it comes with the standard security features that banks and brokerage use so you aren't at any more of a risk than if you used another brokerage/bank.

And like I mentioned in the first post you don't need to attach a bank account if you'd like to keep that private.

Hmm.  Same standard security features as banks and brokers...and you know that how?  Since ive audited that stuff and there is no such thing (while their are standards, each company has a unique security architecture, so i always wonder...even vanguard didnt have 2 factor log in for forever).  But keep bumping your ad for them, though.  I'd much rather get a free share than a $2500 bonus from Fidelity or TDA.

Anyway, sorry to be snarky.  I don't see any advantage to not going 100% Vanguard or ETFs with an established low fee broker.

One of the first questions I had was whats the catch?  Turns out they just want a wider audience.  They make money by hoping you will upgrade your account to a premium version to allow for margin trading and after hours trading. Additionally they make some money using the cash and credit balance that your account has. From their website: https://support.robinhood.com/hc/en-us/articles/202853769-How-does-Robinhood-make-money-


When I signed up for this I received 1 share of GE valued at $28.16.  Not bad for 5 minutes of work if you ask me.

They make money off of hope? HAHAHAHAHA!!  Oh, child, you have a lot to learn about financial markets.  You're first thought whenever anyone recommends a new or unfamiliar financial product or service is: How can they screw me?  Or if you're not appropriately cynical yet, you could simply ask: How is their bread buttered?

As they are a start-up tech company, I assume they are currently not profitable and are in the growth phase.  Making money now is not their primary concern, growing the user base is.  However if they are to be viable long term that will have to change, and they will have to sacrifice their purity and dirty their hands making money.  This is just how the world works.  I question the wisdom of investing with the company, when they say at the outset that their goal is to upgrade users to a margin account.  Margin accounts and naive unsophisticated investors are a toxic combination and are virtually certain to end badly. 

Keep in mind this Internet maxim: If you aren't paying for the product you are the product. 

So lets jump ahead.  At some point, they will make substantial amounts of money off of fees for services and selling products.  Lets say, for arguments sake, that most young naive millennial investors are smart enough to avoid a margin account and the associated fees and this is negligible.  Then where do the profits come from?  I've heard it said that they make money off of interest in uninvested funds.  But this is actually quite ridiculous because I doubt there are many uninvested funds in these accounts -- they actually enable and encourage people to buy single shares... So folks aren't exactly holding lots of cash in these accounts until they save up and can afford a round lot of GE or BRK.B. And, money market rates right now are really low.  My baloney detector is going off on the "We make money off of uninvested cash" argument.

So, that only leaves a few options.  They can either be bought out and sell the entire kit-and-caboodle to a large brokerage house and transfer all of the user accounts over there, in which case fees will almost certainly start being charged -- of all of the options I think this would probably be the most preferable to account holders.  They could sell their order flow for rebates.  Basically this would allow someone else to, in a manner of speaking, front run trades and make a small profit from each one.  This is only really profitable if there is a huge base of users producing the flow.  Trading order flow works well with odd-lotters (people who buy less than 100 share lots), since the bid and ask quoted on a round lot do not need to be honored, and bid/ask data is not required to be posted to the ticker for odd lots.  Finally, as I see it they could mine their user data and stock holdings in their accounts and then this mined data could be sold to those who what to know what the dumb money is thinking.

Good Luck!

In terms of signup bonus, this is pretty lame. A step up from Wal-Mart offer, but not by much.

I personally do not have the ability to independently verify these claims but if you google search them you can ascertain for your self if they are legit.  I believe they are so I have no qualms about signing up with them.

Good Luck!

I can see now that I worded that wrong.  They make money off of their premium accounts, so its fairly intuitive to assume that they would like you to become a premium member of their service.

This is also why I added the note at the end of my first post to those people (like myself) who may just want the free share, they can claim it and then wait a total of 32 days to withdraw the money.  All in time costs would be around 10-15 minutes for a chance at a $150 share.

From their website their overarching premise is "We are on a mission to democratize the American financial system.", through the use of $0 commission trades and zero fees.  Additionally they note: "The stock market is one of the best available tools for individual wealth creation, generating annual returns of around 10% over the past century. Our mission is to empower this new generation to take greater ownership in their financial future, which we believe can help shrink the gap between the "haves" and the "have nots" and lead to a healthier, more robust global economy."


Here is how they make money (directly from the link that I quoted in my original post) "How does Robinhood make money?

With Robinhood Gold, you get up to 2x your buying power and access to after hours trading for as little as $10 per month. This is the only product Robinhood charges you for, and is completely optional. Trading is still commission free.

Keep in mind this Internet maxim: If you aren't paying for the product you are the product. 

^ This is probably a very good thing to keep in mind when you are using the internet or any internet related product.


I appreciate everyone's opinion here, my goal is not to force you to buy a product, rather to provide you with as much information that I can about this product that I find interesting.  Plus I think mustachians can game the system by just signing up for the free share, a chance at a $150 bonus is pretty cool with zero capital requirements unlike credit card signups or brokerage signups that require an initial investment or spending requirement.  Please do your own independent research before you make a decision.

Thanks again.  I actually know these guys and think their mission and approach is fine.  As stated, for profit eventually smack up against good intentions and changing the world ideology, but competition is a good thing.  Enjoy the share.

Totally understandable.  I view it a little as the Amazon of the brokerage space, giving value back to its customers and operating on small margins, preferring to grow total revenue rather than EPS.  I think their mission is really neat, and I hope it gets more people involved with investing.

I also agree with you that vanguard indexes are the way to go, and I'm transitioning myself to take advantage of them fully, however a huge amount of millennials do not invest at all so if they can pick up some shares this way without paying a commission or fees I tend to think they will be better for it than blowing it on some other consumer product.

I got Office Depot (ODP) at about $5.

I was planning on signing up for Robinhood eventually for the sole purpose of buying exactly 1 share of BRK.A so that I can attend the annual meeting in Omaha annually. I'm moving there, so it will be inexpensive annual entertainment. Otherwise, I'll stick with my Fidelity index funds, thank you very much.

I got Staples, around $9 bucks. Robinhood has a high enough valuation and have been around long enough for me to not be too concerned about them being fly by night.

Might as well post my referral link as well if anyone is feeling like doing a referral chain, its a nice idea to spread around the referrals instead of one person getting all of them.

I also got Rite-aid (RAD)

I signed up using speedracer's link.  My account is approved, but they didn't gift me a stock yet.  How long did it take you guys to get your stocks?

EDIT: Apparently it was there in the app, I just had to dismiss some cards before it would prompt me.  I got a share of Zynga (ZNGA) worth $3.62.  Score! Imma go tell my boss to fuck off now because I'm retiring on Zynga stocks.

EDIT: Two people followed my link.  I also got my wife to sign up.  I have 2 shares of zynga @ $3.72/ea, 1 of CHK @ 4.98, and 1 of SIRI @ $5.49 for a total portfolio value of $17.92

I got Office Depot (ODP) at about $5.

I was planning on signing up for Robinhood eventually for the sole purpose of buying exactly 1 share of BRK.A so that I can attend the annual meeting in Omaha annually. I'm moving there, so it will be inexpensive annual entertainment. Otherwise, I'll stick with my Fidelity index funds, thank you very much.

Here is my link: http://share.robinhood.com/jamesm1336

We can't have StudentEngineer getting all of the action, now can we.

BRK:A?  The one that costs a quarter of a million dollars?

I used Frugalnacho's link and got Groupon stock GRPN at $4.03.

My referral link for free robinhood stock is http://share.robinhood.com/joshual721

Not a great stock but it was free :).
