optionsXpress currently has three promotions (see optionsXpress review), but their primary bonus offer is getting 50 free trades when you sign up. As their name implies, they are focused more on the advanced trader.
Once again in 2015, optionsXpress was rated 4 out of 5 stars by Barron’s as the best for options traders and 4 out of 5 stars for best with international traders. However, from the Smart Money’s 2011 broker survey, they were rated the worst in commission and fees. OptionsXpress was bought by Charles Schwab in 2011 but still retains the name as a separate brand.
For any of the offers listed, no promo code is needed. Just click on the selected button and sign up. For terms and conditions on each offer, please visit the respective URLs.
