Is there a thread on US banking and brokerages? I currently bank with Chase and they don't have a brokerage for banking customers. I trade with ETrade which has ridiculous trade commissions. So I'm thinking of moving over to BofA and using their Merrill Edge platform, which gives you free equity trades if you meet certain criteria. Although I don't want to completely leave Chase, because I like the Freedom, Sapphire Preferred, and checking account combo. Any recs on what to do? Anyone know the minimum balance one must maintain with Chase to be fee-free?

I like Tradeking. It works well, only costs $5 a trade. Etrade isn't bad and the $10 commission isn't the highest out there.
Live forever or die trying.

I have seen a lot of threads discussing the best first card, and building up credit but nothing with simple detailed instructions for building your credit from scratch.
I personally applied for a few cars and was declined. I then applied for the capital one secured card and was instantly approved. The card has a $29 annual fee and offers no rewards but I had no choice.
I made sure to spend at least a few dollars on it each month and pay the bill on time. After 6 months I applied for an Amex spg card and was approved.

Thanks for saving me some time  ;)

Should they be merged? On second thought it won't help.  :-\
I think it will.

Look what happened to all the 2/3/4bms questions.

I don't anyone started a new thread since ;D

Oy. Thank you! If I have time I suppose I'll try and organize a summary.
I thought about doing that every time I saw a new post like "I haven't been able to get approved...." or "I have a friend who has no credit history...". The list of threads dedicated to this one question goes on and on.
I still consider myself new to the forum and didn't want to add to the clutter aside from which I'm not sure where it would go so I was reluctant to post a summary, especially if that meant starting a new thread.
