Free Stocks – Free Money & Stocks to Invest
This is a great way to earn a little bit of extra money while you are stuck at home.
If you are looking to get into trading, then free trading apps might be a good place to start. Many financial apps and services have popped up over the past few years with free stock offers for new customers. On top of that free trading in general is now available from most major brokers as well. In this article we will focus on free stock sign up offers for online brokerage apps. Note: If you are looking for a service to track your accounts, sign-up for Personal Capital. It’s free and there is a $20 bonus! (Our Personal Capital Review)
Keep in mind that we are sharing our own personal experiences and knowledge. This is not trading advice, nor suggestions on which app to use for your active trading. Most of these apps have limited features, so they are not well suited for advanced traders. With that said, these free stock offers can be lucrative and all of these services can be useful for beginners. So after you grab your free stocks, check out each app and see which one makes sense to use long term.
Now, let’s get into our free stock sign up offer roundup. We will post a quick link to each offer below and you can find more details and our experience with each service by scrolling further down!

Our Experience: M1 is all about automated investment using a pie model that is comprised of stocks you like. Funding the account was quick and the $20 bonus is nice too!
Nvstr Free Stock & Money to Invest Offer
nvstr Free Stock Offer Details: Sign up with Nvstr (pronounced Investor) to earn a free stock plus free cash to invest. You can get from $8 to $1,000 in cash.
Our Experience: It takes a few days for the free money to hit the account, but you can indeed use it to invest. Keep in mind they take back the money if you don’t make a trade within 30 days, so make sure to trade something on the account.
Robinhood Free Stock Sign-Up Offer
Robinhood Free Stock Offer Details: Robinhood gives you one free stock when you sign up. You also get a free stock every time you refer someone else.
Our Experience: I use this app actively, because it has a top notch interface. Robinhood also has a full featured website as well. Again, it is not perfect, but it has served me well for somewhat active investing.
Firstrade Free Stock Sign-Up Offer
Firstrade Free Stock Offer Details: Open an account today and receive a free stock.
Our Experience: This app anecdotally has given the best stocks on average. We have heard people are seeing $30+ stocks regularly. I have personally received AMD before which is worth about $45. I should stress this doesn’t guarantee that you will get something similar since they promise a stock valued between $8 and $1,000.
Public Free Slice of Stock Sign-Up Offer
Public Free Stock Offer Details: Open an account today and receive a random amount of money towards a piece of stock in big companies like Amazon.
Our Experience: Signing up for Public is a fast process and my account was approved within a couple of minutes. Public gives you a slice of stock that varies in value. You can then invest that slice in a ton of large companies like Apple and Microsoft.
Dough Free Stock Sign-Up Offer
Dough Free Stock Offer Details: Open an account with Dough and get a free stock valued at $2 – $200.
Our Experience: Dough took a little longer than others to approve my account (about 3 business days), however the free stock posted shortly after approval. I received a $10 stock for my sign-up.
Acorns Sign-Up Offer – *Featured Offer
Acorns Offer Details: Acorns will invest $5 in you.
Our Experience: Acorns has been around awhile and I have had an account with them for years. This platform is designed to get you saving. They will top off your purchases as savings, get you cash back on purchases and invest the money for you. Worth a look!
