The standard options contract fee is $0.65 per contract (or $0.50 per contract for customers who execute at least 30 stock, ETF, and options trades per quarter).

Here's how to get your cash credit:

Cash credits will be granted based on deposits of new funds or securities from external accounts made within 60 days of account opening, as follows: $5,000-$9,999 will receive $25; $10,000-$24,999 will receive $50; $25,000-$99,999 will receive $200; $100,000-$249,999 will receive $300; $250,000-$499,999 will receive $600; $500,000-$999,999 will receive $1,200; $1,000,000 or more will receive $2,500. If you deposit $250,000-$499,999, you will receive a cash credit within seven business days. If you have deposited at least $250,000 in the new account, and you make subsequent deposits in that account to reach a higher tier, you will receive a second cash credit following the close of the 60-day window. For example, if you deposit $300,000, you will receive a cash credit of $600 within seven business days, then if you deposit another $200,000 you will receive an additional cash credit of $600 at the end of the 60-day window for a total reward of $1,200. If you deposit $500,000 or more, you will receive your cash credit in two transactions at the end of the 60-day window—depending on your initial funding amount. If you deposit $1,000,000 when you open your account, you will receive two cash credits that will total $2,500 within 7 business days from account opening.

All other reward tiers ($5,000-$9,999; $10,000-$24,999; $25,000-$99,999; $100,000-$249,999; $500,000-$999,999) will be paid following the expiration of the 60-day period.

In addition, if you deposit $500,000 or more into your new account, deposits made in eligible linked accounts during the 60 day period will be aggregated for purposes of the reward and the credits will be paid pro-rata to all accounts where deposits were made during the 60-day period. For example, if you have deposited $500,000 in your new account during the 60 day period, and during the same period you deposited $100,000 into another eligible account you have linked to the new account you will receive $1,000 in your new account and $200 into the other eligible account.
