Fidelity has inked an agreement with American Airlines in an effort to help its brokerage products take off in a fiercely competitive environment.

This month, the airline company and Boston behemoth announced a partnership through which brokerage customers will earn "miles" for opening accounts.  Of course, the more money investors deposit, the further they can go, with an initial deposit between $2,500 and $9,999 earning 5,000 miles, between $10,000 and $49,999 earning 15,000 miles, and deposits of $50,000 or more earning 25,000 miles.
