Get $100 when you Deposit at least $500 through Wealthsimple Invest (New Customers Only)

Deal Link:
Retailer:
Wealthsimple
Their portfolios suck for multiple reasons (e.g. investor with 40+ year horizon can't invest in 100% equities - lolwut?!) but hey, it's an easy 20% ROI.
You can withdraw after 180 days according to the fine print at the bottom. This money was going into my TFSA for the long haul anyway, so I don't see this as "locking up" $500 but YMMV.

You can also get up to $10,000 of your investment managed for free for 12 months using one of the countless referral codes available online. You'll have to enter your referral code after you've completed signup and have access to your account, through the Rewards link in the top right corner of the page. The $10,000 of free management for 12 months does stack with the $100 bonus.

If you already have any WS product you are not eligible for this offer, as per the T&Cs. If you have a WS account, but no products, you can try doing what this user did to get the $100 bonus.

Thread Summary
Terms from the promo:
Wealthsimple will pay a one time bonus when you sign up for a Wealthsimple Invest Account (the "Promotion Account"). Please note cash bonuses will be applied to your account within 7 business days of meeting required investment level.

This offer is only applicable to new Wealthsimple customers, being individuals who have not previously registered or created an account with Wealthsimple. This offer does not apply to Wealthsimple Trade Accounts, Crypto Accounts, Cash Accounts or clients under the Wealthsimple for Work platform. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer. In order to validate this offer, you must click through from the relevant affiliate link containing the unique tracking code allowing Wealthsimple to identify you. You may only have one (1) Promotion Account. If you open more than one Promotion Account during the offer period, the accounts will be prioritized for payout based on account opening date. Deposits that are split across more than one account will not be considered for eligibility when calculating whether you meet the net new asset minimum threshold (for example, $250 in a RRSP Account and $250 in a Non-Registered Account cannot be combined to reach the $500 threshold). Minimum deposit threshold must be met within 30 days of registration. Customers who receive a bonus payment must keep at least $500 in their Promotion Account for 180 days from initial funding date or their bonus payment will be deducted from their final withdrawal amount or otherwise recovered by Wealthsimple.

I did the promotion of $50 worth of airmiles for $500 deposit last year, It went well for me the fund was up a little more than 8 % in August and I sold it all. The not being able to invest 100% in equities is the same with RBC's robo investing portfolio.

Yes, but for the purposes of this promotion Trade and Cash accounts are not eligible for the $100 bonus.

Still a solid deal if you're investing it anyway in the way that the OP is doing.

That's a different product called Wealthsimple Trade (which doesn't charge for stock trades except for a 1.5% exchange rate markup for US stocks)

This promotion is for wealthsimple Invest, an automated robo adviser that keeps your funds in stocks and bonds, it sells one asset when it inflates too much and buys the other asset which has decreased in proportional percentage of the portfolio. For my portfolio when stocks crashed earlier this year and bonds increased in value the fund automatically sold some bonds and purchased stocks (equities).

Hmm I created a WS Trade account a few days ago for 400 Air Miles. The terms aren't entirely clear but I'm guessing if I have any WS products I wouldn't qualify?

"This offer is only applicable to new Wealthsimple customers, being individuals who have not previously registered or created an account with Wealthsimple."

Yeah, seems like if you already have any WS product you don't qualify.

How?
Can you also choose your asset allocation for the equities? For example 30/30/30/10 Canadian/US/International/EM?

Hey @RichardStroker

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that you can combine a referral for free management with this offer as you stated in the OP, from the offer terms:
This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer. In order to validate this offer, you must click through from the relevant affiliate link containing the unique tracking code allowing Wealthsimple to identify you.

It's not commission, it's the exchange rate which you get hit by every time you buy or sell US stocks.
But this promo is not for brokerage account; it's for WealthSimple Invest which is a roboadvisor.

Is it possible to let the funds sit in a money market or low exposure to market account to ensure no decrease of initial investment?

It worked for me. I have both offers on the site's "Rewards" page. See the images attached.

Not as far as I can tell. The most conservative portfolio seems to be 30% equity and 70% fixed income.
