I use TD Ameritrade. For options $5 and under it's free ($0.03 Fed tax). Normally, they charge $9.99 for trades, but if you sign-up under or call them and tell them you use if you have an existing account, they charge $1.50 a contract + fed tax.

Last year I made over 500 multi-legged option trades that cost a bundle at $10+ a trade. Someone on one of these MF option boards told me about the reduce commission if you just call them. I tell you what, it's making a huge difference in P/L and giving me the ability to be more agile in option trading.

I've looked at other brokerages, but ThinkOrSwim (TOS) is one of the best platforms I've ever used. I was willing to pay that extra commission just to use TOS.
