tastytrade Referral Program Rules

Last revised: November 1, 2023

This tastytrade Referral Program (the “Program”) sponsored by tastytrade, Inc. (“tastytrade,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is offered to all current tastytrade customers with active accounts (“Referrers”) who refer other individuals (“Referrals”) to create and fund a tastytrade individual, entity, joint, or trust (including IRAs) Customer Securities Brokerage Account (each, an “Account”). Whether you are a Referrer or Referral, your participation in the Program is subject to these Program Rules (the “Rules,”) as well as tastytrade’s Customer Agreement, Privacy Policy, and any other agreements you accept in order to create and fund an Account.

  1. Eligibility: All Referrers and Referrals must be 18 years of age or older and must be otherwise eligible to create a tastytrade account. Note that while Referrers may reside in any jurisdiction listed as an eligible country at the following link: Supported Countries for International Accounts, all individuals acting as Referrals must reside in the United States and may not have previously had a tastytrade account. Neither Referrers nor Referrals may be employees of tastytrade, its subsidiaries, affiliates, or agencies, or their respective families (including spouses, parents, siblings, children, grandparents, and grandchildren).
  2. How to make a Qualified Referral: A “Qualified Referral” occurs when the following steps occur:
    a. The Referrer signs in to tastytrade.com, scrolls down to find the “Generate Referral Link” item found in the “Refer” panel on their home page, and clicks the button to generate a Unique Referral Link.
    b. The Referrer shares their Unique Referral Link with the Referral (who may be a friend, colleague, or any other eligible individual they know).
    c. The Referral visits the Referrer’s Unique Referral Link and follows the onscreen prompts to open an Account. (Note: opening an Account requires the Referral to provide a valid email address.)
    d. The Referral funds the Account with a minimum of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00 USD) within sixty (60) days of opening the Account.

    If all the above requirements for a Qualified Referral have been met, the Referrer will receive one (1) Referral Credit. The limit is one (1) Referral Credit for each Qualified Referral. Referrers can see the number of Referral Credits received on their profile page at tastytrade.com.

  3. Funding Requirement: The initial minimum funding amount of $5,000 USD deposited into a Referral’s Account must remain in the Qualified Account for a minimum of six (6) months starting on the date of the Qualified Referral (the “Referral’s 6-Month Period”); however, losses due to trading or market fluctuations will not be taken into account. tastytrade reserves the right to revoke the Referrer’s Referral Credit and/or Bonus, including by deducting the value of the Referral Bonus from the Referrer’s account balance, if it determines in its sole discretion that either the Referrer or Referral has not complied with this requirement.

  4. Redeeming Referral Credits: For every Referral Credit obtained, the Referrer shall receive two hundred and fifty dollars ($250.00 USD) or, in tastytrade’s discretion, the equivalent value in the currency of the Referrer’s jurisdiction (each, a “Referral Bonus”). See below for redemption instructions for trading and retirement accounts:
    a. Trading accounts: Referral Bonuses will be deposited into a Referrer’s account within thirty (30) days after each Referral Credit is obtained. Note: although the Referral Bonus balance will be reflected in the Referrer’s account and can be used immediately for trading on the tastytrade platform, the Referral Bonus will not be available to withdraw in cash until the end of the Referral’s 6-Month Period. Following the Referral’s 6-Months Period, Referrers may request a cash withdrawal via the tastytrade platform. Funds will be transferred into the Referrer’s bank account on file.
    b. Retirement accounts (e.g., IRA accounts): Retirement account holders will receive a check for the Referral Bonus(es) within thirty (30) days following the end of the applicable Referral’s 6-Month period.

    Receipt and/or withdrawal of Referral Bonuses may be subject to verification of eligibility, geographic location, and compliance with these Rules, as determined in tastytrade’s sole discretion. As a condition of redeeming or withdrawing a Referral Bonus, Referrers may also be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, and where legal, a publicity release (collectively, an “Affidavit”), and return same, properly executed, within seven (7) days of issuance of notification. tastytrade’s decisions are final in all respects of the Program.

Withdrawals are subject to compliance with these rules, including but not limited to sections 3 through 5. Individual Referral Credits have no value on their own and may only be used to receive a Referral Bonus. Referral Credits are not transferable and may not be transferred to other existing tastytrade accounts/customers. The Referral Program and/or Referral Bonuses cannot be combined with any other offers, promotions, or marketing referral agreements. Referrers may not use their own Unique Referral Link to apply for a different tastytrade account under their name. To the maximum extent permitted by law, tastytrade reserves the right to disqualify Referrers/Referrals and/or reverse a Referral Credit for any reason at any time, including but not limited to if tastytrade believes a Referrer or Referral have violated these Rules. Any taxes related to Referrers’ participation in the Program, or their receipt of a Referral Bonus, are the sole responsibility of the Referrer. Due to the confidential nature of the accounts, tastytrade cannot disclose information on who has used a Referrer’s Unique Referral Link, nor will Referrers be notified whether tastytrade approves or declines any application(s) from a potential Referral.

Any distribution of your Unique Referral Link on coupon sites or other websites created to take advantage of referral traffic generated from individuals searching for coupons or other discount codes, or otherwise in a way that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam” under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited, and will be grounds for immediate termination of your account and exclusion from the Program, as determined by tastytrade in its sole discretion.

All applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.

    The Released Parties are not responsible for incorrect or inaccurate transcription of referral information, or for any human or printing error in these Rules or any promotional materials, technical malfunctions, lost/delayed data transmission, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, line failures of any telephone network, computer equipment, software, or any other error or malfunction, or any injury or damage to you or any other person’s computer related to or resulting from participation in the Program, or for late, lost, stolen, illegible or misdirected Referral Credits.
