H&R Block Financial Corp. is offering $150 rebates to people who sign up for on-line investing before April 17.
The offer is available to any new customer who opens an on-line trading account and invests a minimum of $2,500. It does not extend to retirement accounts, the Kansas City, Mo. company said.
Customers who trade through the Web with H&R Block have access to real-time stock quotes, research, and portfolio monitoring.
H&R Block, which made its name as a tax-preparation specialist, has reinvented itself recently by broadening its financial services offerings. The company targets middle-income investors with a range of services including brokerage and mortgages.
