Is the Public app actually free?
Yes, it sure is! At Public, our mission is to open the markets to all which is why trades are commission-free and there are never any account minimums to set up or maintain. We never charge any hidden service or convenience fees because, well, frankly, there's nothing convenient about a convenience fee. We are proud to keep Public free and open to all so you that everything you invest and earn stays all yours.
What are the terms for claiming my free stock?
We like to keep it simple at Public and that goes for the terms and rules of claiming a free stock.
Claiming a free stock is limited to one redemption per person and your account must be approved and active to qualify and receive the stock. The free stock is worth $20. Public reserves the right to disqualify any claim at any time.
Can I share this with friends?
Absolutely. Feel free to share this top-secret page with your trusted friends. Just a heads up though that since there is a very limited supply of free stock we'd recommend doing it sooner rather than later because it won't be around forever.
Is Public safe, secure and credible?
Every account at Public is fully SIPC insured up to $500,000 since we're a registered broker-dealer that is a member of FINRA. Public is also backed by the investors behind Venmo and Facebook and we are located in New York City.
