    It works via a referral system. Look at the previous posts here for people's referral links.

    I'm not looking for a referral link, just confirming why some turkers are linking to other companies in the sigs.

    Trying to do my taxes & the online tax form they give out is confusing.
    Well, luckily I was able to report my stocks using the grouping option. I couldn't imagine entering each one individually, yikes. Closing my account with robinhood today.

    turbotax/taxact have an auto import. turbo is a huge ripoff tho. Not sure of the markup on taxact. Also, you might be able to cut out a bunch of steps if you don't have disallowed wash sales

    I think if you click someone's link, you each get a stock. I clicked someone's link, and I did get a stock worth around $4.50. So someone here - I forgot who - probably got a stock too. OK, so far, so good. It is the only share of stock I have owned, but I find it interesting so far... You have to "fund" the account, but $1 will work.

    Yep, thank goodness I figured out that I could report as a group. That was confusing though. Yeah, I haven't gotten any referrals in a while so I went ahead & cancelled my account. My money is better spent paying off my student loans. Went with free H&R Block.

    ah yeah i hear you. my RH has been relegated to gambling only right now. it's half bio/pharma and then amzn, aapl, and botz. I've been slowly taking gains out and dropping it in my IRA at vanguard and a tiny bit into TDA. I'm thinking of just moving a bunch over to fidelity at some point tho.

    Won't click any. I'm better off using it toward the rent.
