5.25% on gas and 3.5% on groceries is not that hard to beat. The bonus rewards apply to a combined spending of $1,500 on gas and groceries per quarter. It's comparable to Sallie Mae's $250 per month on each of gas and groceries (5% each). The nicest thing about the card is the 1.75% cash back on a Visa (for places that don't take Amex for Fidelity's 2%). The customer service at BofA is decent, from what I've heard.
Maybe I'll try out Merrill Edge with a small amount of money, but at least for me, this card would be somewhat superfluous with the other cards I'm currently considering.
I don't trade very often, so the 100 free trades per month do very little to interest me. For others that trade frequently, it would certainly be a useful feature.
...Typing that last sentence makes me feel like I'm suggesting a bar to alcoholics that serves cheap booze...
