OptionsXpress - Black Friday Sale

Just saw this in my inbox… thought it was odd: “Get rid of the “turkeys” in your portfolio this Thanksgiving by selling your non-performers and underperformers during optionsXpress’ Post Turkey Day Event, where all stock sell orders placed and executed are 50% off regular commission costs!* This is a great opportunity to get your portfolio in better shape heading into 2009. But this 50% off event starts and ends on Friday, November 28, so don’t miss out.”

Zecco just did a free month of trading in October so I don’t think it’s odd at all.

You don’t think it’s odd that they are only doing it for sell orders? Buy orders still pay full commission…
