If you are investing for the long term,

If you are investing in an IRA, you really should make a purchase each year in order to have your money invested as long as possible.

So with Scottrade it's $17 a year, or with Vanguard it's $20 for the first year, and then $10 for the next 4-5 years, and then free.

Who thinks you need to look at the overall fee picture...

I totally agree, but look beyond the first year costs.
