recently, i opened a rollover ira at e*trade. i then performed a direct rollover of funds from a 401(k) with my previous employer into my rollover ira. because this was my first account opened at e*trade, and i was registered with, e*trade gave me a $100 promotion signup credit, which they deposited into my rollover ira. i was wondering if this commingling of funds would cause problems in the future if i wanted to roll the funds from my rollover ira into another plan at some point in the future. i also opened a roth ira with e*trade, and perhaps the $100 should have been put there instead. any advice?

thanks for the help! take care, everyone.
