QUESTIONS STILL? We’ve got answers
  • What is the StartEngine Owner's Bonus?
    The StartEngine Owner’s Bonus allows investors to:

    1. Earn a 10% bonus in shares on their investment when investing in participating companies on StartEngine.
    2. Be the first to hear about new bonus-eligible launches via email notifications.
    3. Get a 20% discount on the seller’s fee when trading with other investors on StartEngine Secondary.
    4. Unlock exclusive access for the first seven days of new launches from StartEngine Collectibles, including wine, memorabilia and more.
    5. Receive priority on the waitlist when investing in oversubscribed companies.
  • How does the bonus work?
    For a membership cost of $275/year, you will earn a 10% bonus in shares for any shares you purchase in participating campaigns. For example, if you buy 100 shares at $1 per share in a company, you will receive 10 bonus shares with the Owner’s Bonus membership, meaning you’ll hold 110 shares for $100.

    Your Owner’s Bonus membership ensures you will be the first to be notified about newly launched companies. You will receive an email when a company launches that is eligible for bonus shares with your membership.

    Investors with the Owner’s Bonus are also notified by a daily email that features any bonus-eligible company that launched in the previous 24 hours.

    As an Owner’s Bonus member, when selling shares on our trading platform, StartEngine Secondary, you will receive a 20% discount on commission.

    Investors with the Owner’s Bonus membership will have priority access to invest in new launches from StartEngine Collectibles for the first 7 days of launch. StartEngine Collectibles is a Regulation A offering that brings alternative investments to our community, including wine, memorabilia, and more. In addition, investors with the Bonus also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest in a company that has surpassed its maximum funding goal. Owner’s Bonus members will have first priority to invest if prior investments are canceled or fail, freeing up room to invest in the offering.
  • Who participates in the bonus?
    Companies have the option to opt in and participate in the Bonus program. Please note that not every offering will be eligible for the Owner’s Bonus.

    To identify whether a specific company is participating in the Owner’s Bonus, look for the Owner’s Bonus symbol below the “Invest Now” button at the top of the company’s campaign page. The Owner’s Bonus will also be listed in the rewards perks section of the campaign as well.
  • How long does the bonus last?
    The Owner’s Bonus is active for one year from the point of purchase. The Owner’s Bonus will auto-renew every year. If you choose to cancel the auto-renewal of your Owner’s Bonus, it will expire at the end of that year’s eligibility period.

    To cancel your Owner’s Bonus, please email contact@startengine.com
  • How do I get the bonus?
    If you don’t already have it, you can buy the Owner’s Bonus during checkout when making an investment. You can also purchase it as a standalone product from this page. The Owner’s Bonus costs $275, billed annually, and is set to automatically renew at the end of your membership term.
  • How do I renew the bonus?
    The Owner’s Bonus has an annual $275 payment charged at the beginning of your year’s eligibility period. Your Bonus will auto-renew the following year. We will send you an email notification in advance of that upcoming renewal. You may cancel your membership at any time prior to your auto-renewal if you no longer wish to renew.

    If you choose to cancel at any point, your current Bonus will expire at the end of that year’s eligibility period.

    Alternatively, if you make 2 investments of any amount within the first 15 days of having the Owner’s Bonus, you will receive 12 additional months of Owner’s Bonus benefits.

    Note: if you earned your Owner’s Bonus through one of StartEngine’s Regulation A+ offerings, then at the end of your eligibility period, you can renew your bonus by purchasing the bonus through this updated system.
  • Does the bonus come with StartEngine shares?
    The Owner’s Bonus previously was a perk associated with StartEngine’s equity crowdfunding offerings. Now that you can purchase the Owner’s Bonus as a standalone product, the Bonus is not associated with StartEngine shares and does not come with any shares in StartEngine.
  • How do I cancel the bonus?
    You can request a cancelation at any time by reaching out to contact@startengine.com.

    Cancelation requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Not all cancelations are entitled to a refund. Cancelation requests will be assessed based on the investor’s Bonus shares accumulated, and active membership duration up to the point of cancelation.

    Any refunds for the Owner’s Bonus membership will be made to your original form of payment during purchase.

    The Owner’s Bonus is set to auto-renew every year and will charge the payment method on file. If you would like to opt-out of that auto-renewal, you can do so here. Please note that by opting out, your Owner’s Bonus subscription will remain active and expire at the end of your year’s eligibility period. If you have any questions or problems canceling your auto-renewal, you can email contact@startengine.com.
