Wealthfront and Betterment

Evidently Vanguard is linking up with Wealthfront, Fidelity with Betterment. Has anyone tested either of these?

Betterment

.25% (Wealthfront) after $15,000 I suppose is cheap but that would take a chunk out of our IRAs. I really want to know if they are better than Wellesley Income's management.

Vanguard linking up? Not according this Investment News article:
It's Vanguard vs. Fidelity in the robo-advice game

Quote:
Vanguard has an ally in Palo Alto, Calif.–based Wealthfront. The company's algorithms direct about 90% of the average portfolio to Vanguard funds. The firms don't have a financial relationship, and they're chasing different markets.
Wealthfront and Betterment simply uses Vanguard ETFs just like everybody else.

Vanguard's investment management is .3% from $0. WealthFront is cheaper.
