Referrers Board

We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team, with limited resources, but we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.
At this time, we need your help more than ever so that we can focus our energy on helping the millions of people affected by coronavirus. For now, we plan to leave the Referrers Board open, but we ask that you only post on here within the Referral Board rules especially of once only per referral and on the correct threads. As always please keep it friendly and within the forum rules.
Thank you for your help and understanding at this really difficult time.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I did get a share through a referral and have also had additional ones from people using my referral (which is below if you want to use it). The first one I got was worth about £18 but since then I have had one worth about £78 - which is not bad!

    There is more info and comment on this on Reddit.

    Some bits from the official wording:
    Every new Invest registration coming from the link will win you both a free stock share.

    Terms & conditions of the promotion:

    Caveats: beware the 'inactivity fee'
    What is an inactivity fee?
    The inactivity fee applies to accounts with no trades ​for a period of at least six consecutive months (180 days). ​This is to offset the cost incurred in making the service available, even though it has not been used.

    Which can best be avoided by closing the account - done via email.

    Although they also say, oddly, that
    Will you continue to charge me if my account balance is zero?

    But it's probably still best to actually close the account once you've finished trying it - unless you want to use the platform long-term of course....!

    Hi, I have a referral link for trading212 if anyone is interested:


    You just need to sign up to an INVEST account using the above link (NOT the ISA account) and deposit £1. You then get allocated a free share which can be worth up to £100!

    Mine was worth £18 when I did it, it's allocated instantly once your identity is verified and you can withdraw it afterwards.

    For full disclosure, if you use my referral link, I get a free share too.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm an existing Trading212 customer, and you can get a free share worth up to £100 (I also get one) if you use my referral link below to open an Invest Account with Trading212 and deposit £1:

    I got a free share worth £40 when I opened my account under this promotion.

    Please go through the following steps:

    1. Click the above referral link and then click on 'Open Account' button - choose only the Invest account (not CFD or ISA) during the account opening process.

    2. Once the account is opened, you will need to wait for account activation. In my experience, this is done automatically if they can verify you using the details already provided, and you will receive an email confirming the same within 5-10 mins. If they can't, then you can click on the Chat button in the bottom right corner of the screen, select 'Account Activation' under category, and request to activate your account manually using your ID document.

    3. Once activated, click on your account in the top right corner of the screen, then choose the 'deposit funds' option from the drop-down menu to deposit £1 into your account to fulfill the funding requirement. Choose the credit/debit card option for an instant deposit of funds with no fees.

    4. Once your account is funded, your free share will be deposited within the next 1 working day, and you will receive an account funded email to confirm the same. The share will be shown under 'Open Positions' in the bottom of your Trading212 screen. You can choose to keep the share or sell it by clicking on the 'X' mark next to the share to close the position. Once sold, the proceeds will be deposited into your Trading212 account.

    5. To withdraw the funds, click on your account in the top right corner of the screen, then choose the 'withdraw funds' option from the drop-down menu to withdraw your funds to your card/bank account.

    You can then close your Trading212 account if you don't need it by sending an email to [EMAIL="info&#64;"][email protected][/EMAIL] or by using the chat option. If you choose to keep it open, then just carry out a trade once every 6 months to prevent inactivity fees. Or, just keep the account balance zero as no inactivity fees are incurred in that case.

    If you need any help, please feel free to PM me (as this is a referral only thread) :)

    For full T&Cs of this promotion, please see below:

    I got a £22 share for free too after using a link on here.

    If someone would be so kind as to use my link, I would appreciate it. From signup to withdrawal was less than 12 hours. Not bad for just a £1 investment.
