I'm new to posting on this board. Hope you don't mind if I jump in. I am just getting started investing in Intel through their DRiP program. If you are in it for the long term, the Intel DRiP is an excellent way to start. Buy your first share through a broker, have it transferred to your name, then contact Intel to get an authorization form for the DRiP program. Sign the form, send it in with or without an optional cash payment to purchase more shares commission free.
Yes, Intel's DRiP plan is totally fee-free. After your first share, you pay nothing to buy all subsequent shares or to have dividends automatically reinvested. The only downside is that you can't control exactly when the shares are purchased by Intel through the plan or at what price. But, again, if you are dollar-cost-averaging monthly or quarterly for the long term, it won't matter that much.

In my view, Intel is making the rules and will continue to do so.
