If you have a large amount of money available to invest or move from another investment firm, these are some great investment offers to earn you more miles/points in your “travel bank”.

Here are the top offers:

Earn up to 50,000 miles

Offer expires September 30, 2012…shtml?MSC=AA01


Earn up to 50,000

Expires October 1, 2014…shtml?MSC=UA01


Earn up to 50,000 miles…on_delta.shtml
Offer expires February 14, 2013

I personally have not done any of these offers because I don’t have the funds to play with.  I know some do though.  From what I’ve read on the subject, you may even receive bonus miles if you have an existing Fidelity account and deposit more money into it.  Just call and talk to a representative regarding the promotions and ask if you could receive bonus miles for depositing X amount of funds.
Also, you can make several deposits that accumulate to the $50,000 to receive the maximum bonus.  You can also transfer funds from another external non-Fidelity source.  The terms and conditions indicate that you must keep the funding amount in the account for 6 months but fellow travelers report otherwise in the article listed below.  If you are thinking of doing this deal, read these articles in their entirety.  They have a great deal of info.  Also, the comments too have useful information.

  1. I have not done this either and will began to look into it. Questions like when funded with say $25,000 can I just let the $$ set for a week and withdraw/repeat and once the $100,000 is met, withdraw the final $25,000 and move on? Will there be any tax 1099 sent out? Thanks

  2. Kevin according to the "FlightSpin" article this is what the blog writer and others have done and report receiving the miles very quickly. The terms and conditions do state that you need to keep the funded amount in the account for 6 months. Does't really seem to work though as they say also you'll receive the bonus miles within 8 weeks. As far as the 1099. I see no where in the Terms & Conditions that state you would receive a 1099 for the bonus. I would call and speak with Fidelity over the phone to clarify if they do that. I think it is just a crazy Citibank thing.

  3. Thanks for highlighting all the important items. As you know most men don't read instructions or need directions. I have began setting up my first with AA and did call Fidelity and they are helping me. Next is Delta and then my wife has a different address so we will begin with her. Thanks again!
