In the Super Bowl spot, called “Save It”, the E*TRADE Baby demonstrates
just how much money is at stake in hidden 401(k) account fees by playing
out over-the-top spending sprees that could be paid for with the money
spent on fees. In the end, the Baby offers a better idea, “come to
E*TRADE, and Save It.”

investors to take control of their financial futures by avoiding
unnecessary expenses,” said Nick Utton, Chief Marketing Officer of
