I signed on with American Express brokerage because of the free online trades. This move smacks of bait and switch. I called them up to complain and without even hesitating, they gave me 20 free trades instead of 10. I pressed them by asking if this would be forever. They replied by saying it was only until March 1st of 2001.

All of this gives me less than a warm and fuzzy feeling towards AMEX. And despite the trouble it takes to switch accounts, I'll do it, if they don't reverse this policy by March.
