If you’ve been considering investing a little bit of your money you might want to check out the deal that Sharebuilder is running right now. When you open an investment account with a balance of $25 they will match it and give you another $25!
Sharebuilder’s system is intended to be very simple and does not require formal investing experience. It only takes about 10 minutes to open your account and you can start investing right away. Their base plan is even free and offers $4 automatic investments which is a really good deal.
Neither my husband nor I am a professional investor by any means, but we are going to give this a try. I think it would be fun to take just $25 (which will be doubled right off the bat to $50) and see what we can do with it!
