Firstrade Launches Enhanced Refer-a-Friend Promotion to Reward Customers for Continued Support

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Firstrade Securities Inc., an award-winning discount online broker, recently launched a newly enhanced Refer-a-Friend promotion to thank customers for their continued support. Under the new promotion, existing Firstrade users may earn a $50 referral fee in their Firstrade account when they refer a friend to open a new Firstrade account. The referee may also earn five commission-free trades upon successful opening of the account while enjoying Firstrade's low rates and fees.

"Firstrade retains its customers by providing continued high-level online trading services with competitive rates and fees. Our customers recognize that fact and are eager to share their satisfaction with friends. The $50 rebate is just a little token of appreciation we have for our customers' support," said John Liu, President and CEO of Firstrade.

The new Refer-a-Friend promotion provides incentives to users to share their Firstrade online trading experience with friends. Firstrade account holders can invite as many friends as they wish through their account, track their invitation codes, and even send reminders. "A good portion of Firstrade's steady growth has been attributed to word-of-mouth from satisfied customers," said Liu. "Firstrade's Refer-a-Friend program has always been a popular promotion at Firstrade, and judging from the reaction we have seen, we have just made it better."
