CEF DRIP PROGRAMS, Did you know...

I suspect some of you know that many CEF's offer dividend reinvestment programs that allow dividends to be reinvested in additional shares on a discounted basis. Trying to find out how to take advantage of such programs is somewhat of a mystery. Most CEFs suggest that the funds need to be held by the Depository Trust Company, which would be a grand hassle for me. I have recently learned that Fidelity makes a conscious effort to take advantage of such programs such that my reinvested dividends on CEF's in my Fidelity account are purchased at a significantly lower price than the same dividends received by Vanguard. To me this is a BIG deal, but it's hard to find any discussion of the issue on the internet. Anyone else on top of this issue?
