A number of stock trading apps have sprung up over the last few years and competition between them is fierce. In an effort to attract customers Freetrade and Trading 212 offer free shares when you sign up using a referral link and make a small deposit. These free shares can be worth up to £200. You can cash out as soon as you receive your free share and pocket it’s value, plus whatever you deposited! You can then make even more money by referring your friends. As long as they sign up using your referral link they’ll receive a free share and you’ll get one too! To find out how to get Freetrade and Trading 212 free shares follow the instructions below:
Trading 212 Free Shares
Free share link: Trading 212 free share link*
Deposit amount: £1
Value of free share: Up to £100
To make sure your free share has tracked I’d recommend using the link above on a desktop laptop or PC. I’ve heard reports of people not receiving their free shares when signing up on mobile devices so to be on the safe side it’s best to do it via desktop. You should see a banner at the top of the page that says, “You were invited to Trading 212 Invest. Get a free share worth up to £100. Open an account now! The promotion is valid only for Invest and ISA accounts and does not apply for CFD accounts.” All you need to do is sign up, deposit £1 into an Invest or ISA account and you should receive your free share within 3 business days. You’ll then be able to refer your friends and earn more free shares!
Freetrade Free Shares
Free share link: Freetrade free share link*
Deposit amount: £2
Value of free share: £3 – £200
Freetrade works in a very similar way and offers a free share worth between £3 and £200 if you sign up using a referral link. The free share link above should bring you to a page that says, “Enter your email to create your Freetrade account and be eligible to get a free share worth between £3 and £200.” Once you’ve confirmed your email address and signed up you can deposit £2. You’ll also need to fill out a W-8BEN form to be eligible to receive US shares. Once you’ve completed these steps you should receive your free share in 7-10 days.
