I have never paid a fee to purchase Vanguard funds. And I only pay $2 per stock trade at Vanguard now that I've used up all my free trades for the year. Purchases of Vanguard ETFs are still free.

I've never been able to figure out why anyone would purchase Vanguard or Fidelity funds through a broker instead of directly. Well....I take that back. If you want all your information in one place, but want your money in different places, some place like Schwab would be a viable option.
