Here is an email from TD Ameritrade's iZone describing their commission structure for cool-trade customers. I found pieces of this recipe scattered throughout the Internet and wanted to put it all together.

======================================================

Thank you for your email. Your account has been coded to receive the following offer:
Your first 20 trades each statement month $0 Commission per Trade
Your trades 21-100 each statement month $3 Commission per Trade
Your trades 101-200 each statement month $2 Commission per Trade
Your trades 201 & above each statement month $1 Commission per Trade
Please keep in mind the following requirements for this offer:
1. You must place a minimum of 30 Trades per Month
2. There is a minimum account value of $30,000
3. The reduced commission rate applies to equity trades placed on the Cool-Trade platform only. Any trades placed on the Izone website will be subject to the Izone commission rates.

======================================================

Here is how I got there ...

1) I clicked on the link to cool-trade from the TD Ameritrade website in order to get the cool-trade discount ($39.99/month)

2) I downloaded and installed the cool-trade software to try it out ... in simulator mode ... I still haven't figured out enough to use it live

3) I opened an account with TD Ameritrade iZone (the discount brokerage side of TD Ameritrade) ... they ask for $30,000+ equity balance to get the best commissions

4) I then sent an email to TD Ameritrade iZone asking for the cool-trade pricing program. Here is the format of the email ...
