Re: New smoker recommendation?

I have a big green egg and a Weber summit charcoal grill/smoker. I like them both but if I had to pick only one I would choose the Weber. All of the benefits of ceramic, with some benefits that you don’t get with the egg.

Re: Health equity investment fee. High or low?

I think that the big question is whether doing a transfer is worth saving $120/year. I think it is, although this sizable reduction in fees from HE is still welcome. So we can transfer as many times as we want during the year? Yep. No fees on either end. Besides no fees with Fidelity's HSA, you als...

Re: Health equity investment fee. High or low?

I logged into my HE account today and saw that they are lowering the investment fee to 0.03% monthly and capping it at $10 per month. In other words, you hit the cap at $33,333 of investments. Must be in response to all of the people transferring out to Fidelity. That makes it much more reasonable ...
