I think that the main reason is that you can avoid some of the minimum account balance requirements that Vanguard imposes when you have your account with Scottrade. A secondary reason might be that if one want to invest in individual stocks in addtion to mutual funds and one desires to minimize the number of accounts one has they might go to Scottrade for their low commissions.
Personally, I have a preference for working directly with the fund family and I have a Vanguard account in addition to a Scottrade account.
