Have you been saying forever that you’ll start investing? Know enough to nod along in a stock chat? Downloaded an app but never actually used it? If you’ve made those baby steps but haven’t got cracking yet, this offer may just nudge you over the edge…

moomoo is an investing platform that’s just landed Down Under. Already available in the US, Hong Kong and Singapore, moomoo is used by a whopping 18 million people across the globe. It gives you the option to invest in both the Aussie and United States markets, plus there’s a sweet social element if you’re keen to swap tips with fellow traders.

But the real kicker? To celebrate its arrival in Australia, moomoo is offering actual free shares for users who sign up. If that’s not the final push you needed to jump on the investing train, I don’t know what is.

moomoo isn’t just handing out shares willy nilly, though. There’s a few tiers you can take advantage of, depending on how invested (sorry) you are, if you join before June 30.

To start with, you can score brokerage-free trading on Australian and US stocks for 180 days and free access to level two US market data, all by just opening an account. Free perks!

The next tier up gets a bit more fun. Once you’ve opened an account, deposit any amount you please to unlock one free share in the Aussie market. It is that easy. You can’t pick the exact share, but you do get to spin a nifty digital wheel to find out which one you score. There are five shares up for grabs, including QBE Insurance and Bank of Queensland.

But to take things up another notch, if you deposit $2000 or more into your trading account, you can then get your mitts on two free US shares. Once again, you can’t just choose the hottest stocks in the States, but you do get to give the fun virtual wheel another spin. It’ll reveal which two are yours out of a possible six that include Tesla and Nio.

If you were looking for a sign to start your investing journey, this might just be it. Think about how good it would feel to go all-in and brag to every crypto bro about your stake in the US market. That’s a win in my eyes.

You can head on over to moomoo to find out more about the offers.

In Australia, securities products and services in moomoo are offered by Futu Securities (Australia) Ltd, an Australian Financial Services Licensee (License no. 224663) regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
