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’m new to investing and I’m getting tired of my hard-earned money going to pay for what I feel are petty fees. Everywhere I turn, it seems like the investing industry has its hand in my pocket. Since my brokerage account is modest at this point, it’s not a big deal, but as my assets grow, the idea is to keep as much money working for me as possible.
“Many of the sites I use to learn about investing are free – for the bare minimum of information, but a lot of them want me to pay for premium content. Is the same true for TiiCKER? The Insights are helpful and free and it doesn’t seem like you charge individual investors like me any fees at all. Is TiiCKER free?” – Neil W., Fargo, N.D.
Answer: Neil, welcome to the world of investing. We are glad to have you along and so glad you’ve discovered TiiCKER, where retail shareholders like you are rewarded by public companies who want to connect with folks just like you.
And to answer your question, there are no fees or other costs for individual stockholders to use the TiiCKER platform and find valuable rewards. Simply put, it is absolutely free to set up a TiiCKER account. Retail investors need only sign up and connect a brokerage to start earning valuable stock perks.
It may be helpful for you to think about TiiCKER the way you might any rewards program that you are already part of today. Starbucks (Tii:SBUX) has its Starbucks Stars program. Delta Airlines (Tii:DAL) has its SkyMiles loyalty program. Grocery stores like Kroger (Tii:KR) have rewards programs as well.
TiiCKER works a little differently than those programs that reward you for spending on their brands. With TiiCKER, there’s no need to spend to earn stock perks. On TiiCKER you can earn rewards simply for owning shares in stocks you already own. Many TiiCKER users also enjoy browsing the platform to discover new companies to invest in that they might not know at all.
For example, many retail shareholders invest in well-known brands like Whirlpool (Tii:WHR), which offers shareholders with a single share of the company’s stock up to 30% off its family of brands including KitchenAid, Amana, Maytag, Whirlpool, JennAir, Hotpoint, Gladiator and more. It’s a fantastic discount from a company you know and love and might already be invested in.
Take a look around TiiCKER. Individual investors might find brands they don’t know quite as well offering some sweet perks. Take Willamette Valley Vineyards (Tii:WVVI) as an example. The award-winning Oregon winemaker is offering 15% off purchases of its wines at WVV.com simply for owning $100 in any assets. Shareholders with 300 or more shares of its Preferred stock (Tii:WVVIP) qualify for 25% off wine purchases anytime.
So Neil, TiiCKER isn’t just free to use and set up an account, it will actually reward you! Take some time to explore TiiCKER. We have some of the top brands in the world on the platform – some that you know and love already and others that we are sure you will be thrilled to discover.
TiiCKER was created for fan-first, brand-first public companies—with exclusive perks served-up weekly to shareholders. Own stock? Connect your brokerage account to view more than 130 perks waiting for you right now!
