Buying Stock for Yourself or as a Gift has Never Been Easier! #HappyInvesting #GiveStockpile

In exchange for my honest and unbiased review, I received a $25 gift card to try out Stockpile. This post contains a referral link. I am not a market professional and not responsible for gains or losses that you may experience. I am not affiliated with or own an investment in any company or brand mentioned, and have no plans to do so. Securities products are not FDIC insured. Not bank guaranteed. May lose value.


Can you invest in the stock market? Would you gift shares to someone?



I am definitely not an expert on buying/selling stock, but I'm not a stranger to it either. There were several times in my life when I delved into the stock market, for quite a long period of time. Then things happen, life shifts and your hobbies/investing strategies change. Today I have just started investing again, albeit on a small scale, but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? A company I am working with just provided me with a $25 Tesla stock gift card, and redeeming it was a cinch! $25 to invest in TESLA?!?!?! Yep, with Stockpile you can choose from a selection of nearly a thousand stocks, ETFs and ADRs & you can buy fractional shares!! I didn't even know there was such a thing as fractional shares, but what a fun (and smart) idea.

You can buy stocks in actual gift card form, or you can gift it electronically.

GIFTING?

If you want to give someone stock for a gift, Stockpile makes it super easy, giving you the option of either a code sent to their e-mail, or an actual gift card (perfect for tucking into greeting cards, putting on gifts, etc.). I can't think of one adult this wouldn't be a thoughtful gift to offer.

INVESTING for YOURSELF

Even if you don't know a thing about investing, using Stockpile to buy, monitor and/or trade your stock is really a cinch. You can do it all online or through an app you put on your phone.


You can also get this handy "Rookie's Guide to Investing in the Stock Market" guide for free. It gives you information on what kind of stocks to buy, how to buy them, ways to diversify, etc. It also lets you know what common trading and investing terms are that you might not yet understand. It's a handy guide that will have you talking in 'stock' terms in no time at all.

I'm EXCITED about Stockpile! I look forward to watching my new stock to see how it performs on the market, and I will definitely be buying more. I'm also thinking this would be a great way to get my grown kids interested in investing. I think I'll be gifting Stockpile Gift Cards to them for Christmas (yes, I am always thinking of Christmas). ;)

READY TO BUY?

I'm not asking you to buy anything, but if you ARE going to buy anyway, please use my link. For each person who does buy using it, I'll get a $5 stock credit (nice, right?). :)

  15. I've never thought of giving someone the opportunity to buy stock as a gift. I wouldn't even know what stock to invest in myself but I like how there is the rookie book to help.
