Comments to Merrill Edge $100 Sign Up Bonus

  1. Hopefully, the ML account pays some sort of interest while your deposit is locked down – if not, why would you lock up $25K for three months just to get $100?


    • Michael,
      ML is an investment account, so you’d be able to invest the money while it’s there.

      Otherwise, you’re right, it wouldn’t be worth it to tie up the money for that long.
