As I've always used my Fido Amex for Costco purchases, I had thought for awhile that I'd use the Amex to buy one or more good-sized Costco cash cards prior to the switchover in order to prolong getting my 2% discount. (I don't carry Costco's house Amex card so wouldn't be subject to receiving their new Visa replacement.) The new Fido Visa eliminates any workaround and I welcome it for this as well as for a number of other reasons.

The ER for U.S. Bond Index Fund (premium) will drop from 0.07% to 0.05%. The "institutional premium" class will drop to 0.03%.

Wow. They also introduced large cap growth and value index funds.

I guess there is a fight for the instutional 401K plans now that they are cost conscious due to recent lawsuits.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
