People are not doubt used to seeing offers (for Americans) that go something like this: "Sign up to our app, verify your ID and we'll give you a free share/stock. Yup, Free." Robinhood is possibly the most well known of these offerings, but their free stock offer is ONLY available to US residents. What to do if you live in the EU/UK? Well, fear not EU/UK Citizens, Crypto Craic has sourced a free stock offering for you!
BUX Zero is a commission-free trading app that allows users to trade in a variety of financial markets, including stocks, ETFs, and options and it's offering a free share/stock ranging in value from 3 - 200€ if you sign up using the following link:
To make this article easy to navigate, first, I'll tell you the hoops you need to jump through, then I'll tell you if there are any catches and finally, for those interested, I'll tell you a little bit about BUX Zero.
How to Get Your Free Stock
Sign up here. (Only for EU/UK)
Register on the app and complete KYC (know your customer - requires ID verification)
Lodge 1 euro/1 pound. Yup you have to transfer in the minimum amount.
Receive free share a few hours later :-)
No, not really. The offer is limited to EU/UK and you need to sign up, KYC and lodge 1 euro as mentioned above. So there's a small bit of effort on your part but the pay off is well worth it in my opinion. You can withdraw your euro straight away after you get your free share if you want but you should leave your share on the app for a little while before cashing out.
So, What the hell is BUX Zero Anyway?
It is a product of BUX, a European fintech company that aims to make trading more accessible to everyone and is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
With BUX Zero, users can trade on a variety of markets and products, including stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and options. The app also offers a variety of educational resources to help users learn about trading and investing. The educational resources include tutorials, webinars, and quizzes that cover a wide range of topics, from the basics of trading to more advanced strategies.
One of the main features of BUX Zero is that it offers commission-free trading, which means that users don't have to pay any additional fees when they trade. This can make it an attractive option for users who are just getting started with trading or who want to trade without incurring additional costs.
Some pretty cool features, if you want to continue using the app include savings plans, thematic investing and most importantly (and pretty awesomely), fractional investing.
It's important to note that while commission-free trading can be an advantage, it's important to keep in mind that other fees, such as currency exchange fees, may apply and that the performance of the app and its security level is always subject to change. It's always important to conduct thorough research and read reviews before using any financial service.
Stocks = Boring. Crypto = Waaaaay Better, Right?
Ya sure, what ever floats your boat. I mean, the majority of rich people in the world invest in and own stocks because stocks are assets, belong to a real company, that's fully doxed and come with legal protections and aren't just popup sites run by spotty adolescents with big hair. But hey, this isn't financial advice.
I mean, not a lot of risk in a free stock but as always, DYOR, make your own call but just keep in mind this promotion is available for a limited time only.
Keep safe out there and have fun :-)
