-This offer only applies for accounts opened before 08/01. It does return several times per year so it’s worth opening an account with them for next time.

-If you are one of the 1,000+ people who have been to one of the DD seminars you’ll (hopefully) already have an account and know some pretty cool stuff to do with it…and that’s all I’m going to say on the matter 😉
