Wait, is this really free?

Yep. We’re giving away free stock this Valentine’s Day so you can make your crush an investor.

Do I need to be a member to send stock?

No. You can gift stock in five minutes by using this microsite; however, for your crush to redeem their stock they will need to download the Public app and be approved for an account.

How much are my stock gifts worth?

Each free stock gift will be worth up to $50 with the amount selected at random. The recipient will be notified of the exact value upon successful account approval.

How are stock gifts redeemed?

In order to redeem the gift, the recipient will need to set up an account with Public, the social investing app behind this service. Signing up is free and will take about five minutes. Accounts can generally be created by any U.S. resident over the age of 18. In certain cases, a person might be restricted from opening a brokerage account.

Are there any restrictions on when the recipient can sell their stocks?

Recipients can trade their stock at any time, but must wait 60 days to transfer its value to their cash account.

How do stock slices work?

Buying partial shares of stock is known as fractional investing. Public makes it possible to own a piece of the companies you believe in for any amount of money through "slices," which are traded in real-time.

How many stock gifts can I send?

There’s no penalty for being generous! Send as many gifts as you like, the only limit is one gift per person.

Can I send a gift to myself?

Self-love is a beautiful thing, but this holiday is all about showing others you care. That said, if you do send a few gifts, Karma (and Cupid!) just might return the favor.

I don't live in the United States. Can I send stock gifts?

Yes, but the recipient must be a U.S. resident to redeem their stock.


A fun and free service from
