Firstrade Offers Free iPods to Post Thanksgiving Account Openers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - Firstrade Securities Inc., an award-winning online broker, has announced an upcoming promotion to spread the Thanksgiving spirit. Firstrade will be sharing thanks with its new customers by giving away iPods to the first 200 accounts that are opened on Friday, November 28th.

The Friday after Thanksgiving, which marks the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season, is a historically slow trading day. However, Firstrade is determined to break the trend with this new promotion.

"Many people are anxious to take advantage of the blowout shopping sales after Thanksgiving, but they are unable to see the bargain-hunting opportunities that are currently available in our heavily discounted market," says C.S. Hsia, VP of Business Development for Firstrade Securities. "It's a great time to invest and we are simply encouraging more people to do so."

Full details on the promotion can be found on the Firstrade Early Bird Promotion ( webpage.
