You have two steps to qualify for your cash bonus. First, open a new online Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or Individual, Joint or Custodial account on using promo code XCOFW60017 by the promotion expiration date: 01/31/2018. (The promotion is not valid for Capital One Advisors Managed Portfolio accounts or accounts opened through a financial advisor.) You must have a U.S. Tax I.D. (Social Security number) to open a Capital One Investing, LLC, account. Second, make a net deposit, transfer, and/or rollover that posts to your new account within 90 days of opening your account. Your net qualifying assets posted during that 90-day period must be at least $5,000 to be eligible for a $50 bonus, $15,000 for a $100 bonus, $50,000 for a $200 bonus, $100,000 for a $300 bonus, or $200,000 for a $600 bonus. If your net qualifying assets are within $100 of a higher bonus level, you will be credited at that level so you receive a larger bonus. Your net qualifying assets are the total amounts of your deposits and transfers, minus any withdrawals. (Note: the qualifying asset amount isn't affected by any change in value for your securities after they were deposited.) Transfers from an existing online Capital One Investing account, or from a Capital One 360® IRA to an online Capital One Investing IRA, do not qualify. Promotion is non-transferable, not valid for ESAs, and not valid with any other promotion. Limit one bonus per customer or custodial beneficiary.

Capital One Investing will add the bonus to your account within 5-7 business days following the 90-day period. The bonus is not available for withdrawal for 180 days after it is awarded to your account. Qualifying assets must remain in the account (minus any losses related to trading or market volatility) for at least 9 months following the 90-day period or your bonus may be reclaimed. Bonus may be refused or recovered if it is determined that you violated Capital One Investing's Account Agreement.
Any applicable taxes related to Capital One Investing Offers are the responsibility of the account holder. To the extent required by law, Capital One will report the total value of the bonus with respect to a non-IRA investment account to the IRS on Form 1099-INT for the applicable tax year in which it is paid. Account holders should consult a tax or legal advisor to determine the appropriate tax treatment of this bonus for tax purposes.

For traditional and Roth IRAs, the bonus is a cash award that will be deposited directly into the account holder's IRA and treated the same as investment earnings in the account. The bonus will not be reported to the IRS as an IRA contribution and will be reported when distributed on Form 1099-R the same as the remainder of your IRA balance. Account holders should consult their tax or legal advisor about the treatment of earnings in IRAs, guidelines on IRS contribution limits, and the appropriate tax treatment for this bonus before accepting the bonus.

One of over 3,300 entrants (all categories combined) across 2013, 2014 and 2015. Each entrant submitted an essay detailing accomplishments since January 1, 2014, as well as a biography of the leader of the department or team being considered for an award. Winners were determined by two independent reviews conducted by ABA Stevie Awards staff approved volunteer judges in April and May of 2013, 2014 and 2015. At least five judges participated in the first round and members of specialized committees judged the second round. First round judges assigned ratings to entrants in each category using a scale of 1-10. Entrants with scores of at least 7.0 were deemed Finalists, and were rated by the second round judges. The Finalist with the highest score in each category received the Gold Stevie. Finalists in each category with an average score of at least 8.0 received a Silver Stevie and all other Finalists in each category received a Bronze Stevie.
