“IRA Match” from Fidelity

This is a brand new and unique offer from Fidelity. Unlike 401(k)s in which many employers give a match, IRAs offer no such match. Fidelity decided to create a unique promotion in which they will “match” your annual deposits for up to three years. You’ll need to transfer over your existing IRA to Fidelity to quality for this promotion. Rollovers for employer sponsored plans do not qualify for this offer.

For more information about this offer, please visit their website.

    A couple questions re: the airline points with new deposits:
    Fidelity offers airline points with new deposits. Is there a way to get both 50K United and 50K American Points with new deposits? In other words, can I open up 2 new accounts with Fidelity and get point on both airlines?

    Do any others offer airline points (or hotel points) for deposits?

    Fidelity does not honor their promotion Tried to add $100,000 to account inorder to receive the 50 000 milesge points. They told me it was only for select people.

  3. Rich says

    Fidelity does not honor their promotion. I deposited $50000 to my account and expected 100 free trades. When my trades continued to be charged, I called Fidelity. The response was that I had not signed up and therefore was not eligible. Fidelity refused to let me sign up after the deposit. I found no reference to sign up before depositing the $5000, maybe I missed it. Needless to say, I’m frustrated.

      I had the same problem. I opened a new account via the link (https://rewards.fidelity.com/offers/depositbonus) and deposited $100,000 in next couple days. 3 months passed and no $300 award showed up. I called and was told I am not eligible because it is for selected customers only. I pointed out that the website does not mention such restriction. They agreed that the website should be more clear, but they cannot give me the award. At the end they offered me 75 free trades for a year and promised to update the website to be more accurate so not misleading future customers. Not a good experience and I felt being cheated.
