Solicitation Agreement (Popup for Referrer)
This promotion is offered by Stash Investments LLC (“Stash”). To qualify for the bonus, referred friends must open a Stash account and fund their account within the time period specified in the promotion. Please send invites only to people you know personally who will be glad to get them. Stash will send one invite and up to two reminders to each friend you invite: (1) in your name; and/or (2) with your name. The reminders may be different from the original invite and can be canceled by emailing [email protected].
Your participation in the Stash it Forward program is subject to your agreement to the following terms: Through the Stash it Forward program you may invite friends to sign-up for a Stash account by sending them an invitation via the Stash interface, and your efforts in soliciting clients to Stash will be limited to this activity.
This program intends for you to invite only your interested personal friends, family and known acquaintances to open a Stash account by utilizing the referral link and sharing tools we provide. Whenever and wherever you refer a friend under the Program, any additional statements you make, of which are not provided by Stash, about our investment advisory services, must be consistent with the content and materials we provide you and/or your friends and truthful, accurate, factually supported, not misleading. Any modification or efforts to bypass, manipulate, obscure or otherwise modify the delivery and accurate presentation of the referral link, sharing tools, content, disclosures or other materials and instructions we provide will be considered a violation of these terms.
Subject to the terms and conditions specified in the promotion, for each "Qualifying New Account" Stash will deposit up to $10 of bonus funds into your Stash account, or waive the Wrap Fee applicable to your Stash account for a period of up to 12 months, or both. Stash may also deposit up to $10 of bonus funds into your referee friend’s Stash account, or waive the Wrap Fee applicable to your referee friend’s Stash account for a period of up to 12 months, or both, after your referee friend opens a “Qualified New Account” as defined herein and deposits funds to such Qualifying New Account from a linked bank account within the time period specified in the promotion. Under certain conditions, other fees including applicable Apex custodial fees and ancillary fees may apply. If you receive an associated fee waiver under any such fee waiver promotion, you will no longer be eligible for any future fee waivers under the same promotion. Even when you are not eligible to receive a fee waiver, you will be permitted to send invites to friends and they may be eligible to receive a 12 month fee waiver through the Stash it Forward Program, subject to the terms and conditions of the promotion. Furthermore, Stash may from time to time implement incentive programs of pre-specified duration in which you may earn additional compensation of up to $100 for referring multiple Qualifying New Accounts and/or you may be entered into a sweepstakes with a cash prize of up to a $20,000. The value of bonus funds may be taxable income to you. You are responsible for any federal or state taxes resulting from receipt of bonus funds. Please consult your tax advisor if you have questions about the tax treatment of bonus funds.
To participate in this bonus offer you must (1) complete the account opening process and link a funding source (bank account) to a Qualifying New Account and (2) deposit at least $5.00 USD into such Qualifying New Account. Bonus funds must remain in your Stash account for 90 days beginning from the date the bonus funds are deposited into your Stash account and for the entirety of the 90-day period. A "Qualifying New Account" is a new individual Stash account opened by your Stash referee friend using the special designated link from your invitation. Stash is not responsible for incorrect entry or other failure on the part of your referees to meet standards of a Qualifying New Account. Employer-sponsored taxable accounts provided through Stash For Business and tax-advantaged accounts (including Roth IRAs and Traditional IRAs) provided through Stash Retire are not Qualifying New Accounts. You cannot earn bonus funds for referring individuals who already currently have a Stash account or for individuals who have been referred by someone else. If two or more individuals invite the same individual to open Qualifying New Account, Stash will credit the bonus funds to the person whose referral link was used to complete the signup process.
