About how much are memberships? I'm on Sam's Club but wanted to know if it was worth it to switch to Costco just for this promotion. I make seven trades/month so even 25% wouldn't save me a month's salary.
Before risking swimming into a weir, I have a few questions for the wise.
1.) Does the Costco number have to be in your name? If your spouse was the account holder, would just the number suffice?
2.) What exposure does buying a $1 stock and forgetting about it incur? Could Sharebuilder change their fee policy and start charging the account?
3.) Assuming a non-dividend-earning stock was purchased, would there be any tax headaches down the road?
4.) If the account does incur a fee, how would it be assessed? If my linked checking account was closed, would I still be liable (i.e. could I be "caught")?
I suppose a call to a consumer representative is in order, but I hope those that have had accounts open since this thread was started could voice their opinion. Hopefully I'll eventually be able to get to the other side of the Q&A game. Thanks in advance.
