    I think the key to this one is that you've gotta spend your $550 in brokerage within the first 60 days of opening an account. Does anyone know off the top of their head what the charges are on commsec ?

    These are ok offers if you are doing a lot of trading. That is lots of little transactions, as you need to use the credit up in 60 days from sign up. I recommend having a very very good read of the terms and conditions
