When retail investors and public companies discover TiiCKER, some have questions about how stock perks work. So the editorial team thought it would be worthwhile digging into our mailbag and answering some common questions about TiiCKER. Periodically, we will answer these questions and give individual shareholders and companies looking to reward them a few tips and tricks so they can get the most out of the platform that rewards shareholders for simply owning stock in their favorite companies.
Question: “I recently discovered TiiCKER and I like the stock perks that I find on the platform. I’ll admit: I’m an experienced individual investor and, well, a little older than the average shareholder poking around online. The only thing that gives me slight pause about signing up for a TiiCKER account is connecting a brokerage to the platform. Why do I have to connect a brokerage account to claim perks?” – Karen B., New York, N.Y.
Answer: Karen, first, let me personally welcome you to TiiCKER, an online platform designed to connect retail shareholders with stock perks. We get this question a lot. I’ll start off by answering a question you didn’t ask: What safeguards does TiiCKER have in place regarding online security. It is important for you to understand that keeping your privacy and personal information safe is our most important job.
TiiCKER is backed by industry leading online security, so it is important to know that any brokerage information you connect is in good, safe hands. We understand that by connecting a brokerage account to TiiCKER, you are putting your trust in us that we will keep your information secure. I can assure you that we will.
Now let me answer your specific question: You have to connect a brokerage account to TiiCKER so we can verify your ownership with our brand partners offering the valuable perks. Brand partners on our platform trust TiiCKER to verify stock ownership and holding periods for them so they can reward you with valuable shareholder rewards.
When you connect a brokerage on TiiCKER, the platform analyzes your portfolio and informs you of the stock perks that you are eligible to claim based on your holdings and how long you’ve held the assets. TiiCKER vets shareholders based on these connected brokerage accounts. Without that connection, there is no way for us (on behalf of our brand partners) to make sure you hold the proper assets to claim the valuable rewards.
When you think about it, it’s really no different than presenting a ticket to enter a concert or sporting event. The ticket is proof that you bought a seat to the event. Consider your connected TiiCKER brokerage as your ticket to shareholder rewards.
There are 100's of brokerages supported on TiiCKER including TD Ameritrade, ETrade, Questrade, Interactive Brokers, Tradier and many more via Plaid. At no point in time does TiiCKER ever has access to your credentials. You are always in complete control. So Karen, connect your brokerage today with complete confidence and start earning your stock perks today.
