Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and reliable My Fidelity account is the best brokerage account that I ever had. It combines excellent internet self-service navigation features, with excellent customer service assistance by phone. And the few times that I have had to go to an office, the service is fast and excellent as well. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Fidelity makes it easy to consolidate my accounts. The rep was fantastic when I needed to consolidate from 2 separate providers. Walked me thru all the steps and was patient. Online research is great for the do it yourself investor. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure and reliable Service is world class, accuracy and speed of trades unmatched. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenience and Value Fidelity is constantly updating their web site with additional tools, calculators, and articles. I especially enjoy the View Points I occasionally receive via email. Whenever I've called the company to discuss a problem the first person I talk to takes ownership and stays with me until my problem is resolved. My Account Executive is professional and personable, and the amount of contact I have with him is just right. October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pefection I tried many other brokerage firms and have found Fidelity to be the best. Gotta love the low commissions, lots of research, cash management account with ATM fee reimbursement, 24/7 live person availability, and credit cards that pay 2% back. Bravo Fidelity. Bravo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Although having a Fidelity account for many years, I recently opened a trading account and am very happy for doing so. The convenience of transferring money, transferring other funds and making trades has impressed me very much. The ease of use with the website, the convenience and ease to navigate is wonderful. The website is great for viewing my accounts. I've very happy to be using Fidelity. I've also used the phone technical people and they have always been fantastic, super cooperative, informative, patient, etc. I've told numerous family members and friends about the great service, if they choose to use these types of accounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great customer service The Fidelity website is very functional and user friendly. The guidance I received from my account executive was excellent. No pressure or over selling. All aspects of my Fidelity experience are exemplary. August 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grateful for Fidelity I can't remember, exactly, when I first created an alliance with Fidelity; it's been that long (I'm now 82). I've been advised by ao many of Fidelity's splendid associates, always to my satisfaction. It's an organization rooted in efficiency; I've never had a complaint with any of those assigned to my account. My Fidelity account supports me now, as it has for decades. I'm a grateful customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable Very satisfied with your services. Prior to joining Fidelity, I compared you with your competition, and you were the clear-cut winner. Execution of trades are fast, your system keeps me informed of the status, independent stock research thru several well-known providers is available, and information on earnings and dividend, etc. are available on a daily basis. No complaints on your accounting system---statements are available when I want them, and I always reconcile my dividends and never had a problem. Your customer service department has been contacted by me several times, and they have always been polite and helpful. My daughter recently changed jobs and I plan to talk to her about moving her 401k to Fidelity. March 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life should be so easy Working with my accounts at Fidelity is as easy as it gets. I really feel more secure in my investments becaaue of all of the tools Fidelity offers. I was a broker for 35 years and I wish I had the tools available to me that I get from Fidelity. Fast action on trades, instant reponse from my inquires -- really a great pleasure to work with Fidelity. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent web site I have a number of different brokerage accounts, my fidelity account is by far the best. Web site fast, easy to navigate, and offers excellent research tools. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always Helpful The tools associated with a Fidelity Account are powerful and versatile. I also have called Fidelity on many occasions and have always found the representatives to be helpful and informative. In addition, we have a personal representative which is a valued relationship for us. May 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Brokerage Account Yet We are very pleased with the professional relationship we have with your associates and the respectful communications we enjoy. We trust this level of service will continue in the future. May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable I am very satisfied with Fidelity, still learning since I took over the account from my husband May 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nemo Account is clear and easy to use. Contact is not too intrusive, and can be helpful. Transaction costs and fees are trivial when compared with 7% buy and sell fees from years ago. May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full Featured Portfolio My Fidelity account is very easy to monitor and conduct trades online. May 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too new to have a full opinion I am a long time Fidelity customer, but until recently, only IRA's and workplace accounts. I presume you are asking about the taxable account. I've only had it a short time and haven't really invested all the cash yet. However, I am a long time fan of Fidelity. I appreciate that the reps are not clueless and if they need to check something, they do. Overall, I think I can count on the advice and service I receive from Fidelity. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Help with my Visa card The representative was very kind to address my specific question that did take a fair bit of work to handle. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT HERE Words can't express how awesome the employees are here at Fidelity. They are experts and very professional. My best quality about this company is how patient they are with answering your questions and they ensure you have a clear understanding of whats going on. Thanks Fidelity!! May 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy To Manage Great Site I find this site very easy to get around on. Very simple, honestly, because of the green color, it makes you feel like money is waiting for you. Eye catching. also, after you learn what you really need to know, you can make your own choices without help. The only downside is that you wait for a person to come to the phone for a good while should you need their services to explain things to you. May 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Montly reposrts waste a lot of paper One or two pages would be plenty. Transactions, current number of shares, and end balance is all I want. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Website I can find almost all of the information I need on the website. The mobile app is not quite as user friendly. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full Feature Portifolio & Cash management Fidelity has all the features that I need to review and manage my account. May 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could offer better convenience Fidelity forces LIFO or FIFO when trading around large positions. It would be better if we could specifically choose the lots we wanted to trade. May 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Highly Recommended! Great layout. Use it almost everyday to keep track of investments. Better financial news feed would be nice. Switched to Full View from Quicken recently - wish it is more robust! May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Customer Caring They have been persistent in helping our family get some estate items cleaned up. Great Job. May 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by One suggestion We really like almost everything about our Fidelity accounts BUT the debit card is a weak link. On a recent foreign trip our card was rejected multiple times even though we had called in advance to tell of our traveling. Even after talking again the card was refused. Another weakness is the absence of an ATM only card which is much safer than a debit card. Fidelity should find a new provider and also offer an ATM only card. May 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to handle I have been with Fidelity for many years on my 401/Ira accounts and think it is outstanding and recently set up the stock account! April 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Above average Above average discount broker in a competitive environment where technology is displacing human action. April 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure I like my new cash management account. It is easy to see what is happening. April 26, 2016
