If a couple has over $2 million which they can transfer, why would they
need to use Merrill?

Merrill Edge is a self-service brokerage, without advisory fees, unless you ask for them.

$2500 out of $1000000 can be lost in fees rather quickly.

Since, at that level of assets, you would get at least 100 free trades a month, and there are no advisory fees, you pretty much get to keep all the money, except for any taxes that might be due.
