Tastyworks 100 free stock shares bonus; I did this and got stock worth over $300

This is the kind of deal that I would never post unless I did it myself.  

Tastyworks is the name of a relatively new online discount brokerage platform that will give you 100 shares of a select stock (valued between $1 and $6 per share, which means a total value of $100 to $600 bonus) if you open an account with them and deposit $2,000 and keep it there for 3 months. After 3 months, you can withdraw your $2,000, take your 100 shares and sell them, keep them, transfer them, close the account, whatever. 

You will receive the 100 shares bonus a week after you fund the account, but remember that even after you receive your bonus, you must keep your $2,000, plus the value of the bonus shares in the account for at least 3 months, or they rescind the bonus.  Here's an excerpt from their terms:

"The funds deposited to Qualified Customer’s account, plus the initial value of the Stock received (less any losses on the Stock) are required to remain in Qualified Customer’s account for a minimum of three months starting the day shares deposited into account, subject to extension from date of entry, before withdrawal in order for Qualified Customer to receive the value of the Stock (“Three Month Period.”) The value of stock Qualified Customer receives will be credited to their account upon deposit, but will be debited out of Qualified Customer’s account if the Three Month Period requirement is not met, and will not count toward Qualified Customer’s buying power until the end of the Three Month Period. Qualified Customers can sell their Stock once deposited into their account, but the proceeds will be subject to the foregoing Three Month Period requirement."

I completed this promotion and I did receive 100 shares of WTRH, which is worth $336 as of today. That's a 16.8% return on my $2,000 investment over 3 months.  Not bad, eh?  After 3 months, I withdrew my $2,000, but I did keep the account open, because I kind of like the company and the platform.  Please do read their terms and do your own due diligence when redeeming this promotion.
