Business Editors

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 17, 2003

ShareBuilder(R) is the First Online Brokerage to Offer Cardholders

the Opportunity to Earn Points Towards Cash Deposits Into Their

ShareBuilder Brokerage Account

ShareBuilder Securities Corporation, one of the nation's fastest growing online brokerages, today introduced the ShareBuilder Platinum Visa(R) Card as part of the Company's new "Investor Rewards(TM)" program. Cardholders will earn a one percent rebate on all transactions which will be deposited directly into their ShareBuilder brokerage accounts(a) on a monthly basis. ShareBuilder is the first online brokerage to offer a Visa card with cash rewards that are deposited directly into customers' accounts for automatic reinvestment.

"Credit cards are part of everyone's daily life and we recognize that incentives through affinity card offerings have become very popular, but most of those incentives are designed to get us to consume more," said Jeff Seely, chairman and CEO of ShareBuilder Corporation. "The ShareBuilder Investor Rewards program creates the natural link between monthly purchases and monthly investing in stocks. The monthly rebates will effectively create additional yield on our customer's portfolios and help them build wealth continuously, a little at a time."

The ShareBuilder Platinum Visa Card also features a zero percent APR the first 12 months, no annual fees and balance transfer savings. Monthly Investor Rewards cash rebates can be tied to customer's automatic monthly investment plans and the one percent savings can be continuously invested. Customers can apply online for the ShareBuilder Platinum Visa by going directly to www.sharebuilder.com, or by phone at 1-800-685-6055.

In addition to the cash rebate benefits of the Platinum Visa card, ShareBuilder's "Investor Rewards" program provides customers with additional incentives for long-term wealth creation, including cash back promotions, commission rebates from Costco ShareBuilder, mileage rewards on Alaska Airlines, and more.

ShareBuilder makes investing in the stock market easy and affordable for all investors. Uniquely, ShareBuilder allows anyone to buy fractions of shares in regular, dollar-based amounts -- truly making it possible for first-time or moderately experienced investors to create their own long-term investment plans. By abolishing minimum dollar requirements, ShareBuilder removes financial barriers for individuals who have never considered investing in the stock market before.
