Get a free HTC EVO without contract from Charles Schwab, with one large string attached
To celebrate their relatively new Android app, as well as drum up some extra business, Charles Schwab is giving away a free HTC EVO 4G (white or black) or a free HTC EVO 3D to all new or existing customers who make a deposit of $75,000 or more into a brokerage account.
According to the fine print of the offer, you will receive an offer code that you have to fulfill through Letstalk.com. The phone comes contract-free (you still pay for monthly service), and while the Schwab website does not specifically mention the HTC EVO line, I did confirm with a representative from Schwab that this offer does indeed include the EVO 4G and EVO 3D.
The only string attached, and it's a fairly significant string, is that you have to keep the $75,000 in your account for at least twelve months. However, this could be a perfect deal for you if you have a 401(k) from an old employer that you need to rollover, if you've just received a large inheritance, or if you are just a good saver.
Disclaimer: Schwab did not solicit this post from us, and we aren't receiving anything from them in return. That being said, I've been a Schwab customer myself for around three years and have been extremely happy with their customer service and increasing emphasis on technology. For example, they are still one of only a handful of banks and brokerage firms that allow you to deposit checks just by taking a picture with their Android app, which is available on the HTC EVO. In my experience, their fee structure is also one of the most consumer-friendly around. So this isn't necessarily a bad place for you to park your money for a year.
If you have an extra $75,000 just laying around (doesn't everybody?), here's your chance to score a free HTC EVO 4G or EVO 3D. All the details can be found at the link below.[Schwab]
