Asset fluctuations (up or down) do not affect the calculation of Qualifying Assets. The cash offer will be determined based on Qualifying Assets in the Account as follows: Less than $500 – cash reward of $0; $500 – $24,999 – cash reward of $50; $25,000 – $99,999 – cash reward of $250; $100,000 – $199,999 – cash reward of $400; $200,000 – $499,999 – cash reward of $800; $1,000,000 – 1,999,999 – cash reward of $3,000; $2,000,000 or more– cash reward of $5,000.
