Open an Account at Arthamoney and Get a Free Silver Coin

Artha Money which is a new specialized finance management portal from The Times Group. It offers various financial products like trading stocks/shares, mutual funds, insurance, commodities, and even loans. It was started with a tagline “Make Friends with Money”. To encourage more people to an account in their site, they are now giving away free silver coin to all those who open an account for free. Moreover you can also have a chance to win free gold coin daily when you open an account and write a slogan.

As said above, Arthamoney which is a new personal finance management portal from The Times of India. This is said to be first financial supermarket in India which is said to deal with all the financial products from stocks to insurance, income tax to loans. But I wonder I have seen many sites offering these too! But after analyzing I found that they offer even services than a regular financial portal do offer like credit cards, foreign exchange, tax filing and even bill payment. Now, I am convinced that this is the first of its kind financial management portal which deals with all your personal financial needs.

Okay, coming back to this offer. For a limited period they are, to let more people to join them, offering to open an account, whereas the annual fees of Rs. 299 for a silver account and Rs. 899 for a gold account has been waived off. This I have even confirmed with them personally by calling them. And what more you will get a free silver coin if you open an account before August 15, 2008. They have not mentioned about the weight of the silver coin that they are giving for free. But the gold coin is of 8 g weight and 22 carat gold.

To open account, you cannot actually register at their site, instead you need to call them through their customer service number at 46 000 000 and they will send a money manager to your place to help out in opening an account. You will need to submit your PAN Card photocopy and address proof photocopy and two photographs to facilitate account opening, just call and confirm it with them what else you actually need to open an account, I am exactly not sure entirely. As soon as you give these and fill out the form to open the account, he will immediately hand you over the free silver coin. And also a contest form where you need fill out the slogan and the best slogan will be chosen to win the gold coin for the day.

I saw this in ad in the news paper in Chennai, where I live, but I am not entirely sure whether this offer is valid across India. Though when I asked the person (the money manager) who called me book an appointment to open the account, he said it is available across India. So you can give it a try by calling this number 4600 0000. Or you can SMS ARTHA to 58888. Or even email them your queries at customer@arthamoney.com.
