I notice that Schwab now has a list of corporate bonds for sale on their website. Schwab charges $5/1000 as the purchase fee. What I want to know is whether Schwab's selection of corporate bonds is an OK pool to choose from and whether the $5/1000 purchase fee is reasonable? All things being equal, I would rather purchase within an existing account than open yet another account to buy bonds.

Don't know about their selection, but the purchase fee seems reasonable. If there are no other spreads between buy and sell prices, this is probably a decent deal.
