Re: vanguard IRA to Roth conversion question

Assuming the Vanguard Roth IRA account is already established, all you have to do to convert from TIRA to Roth IRA is exchange from the fund in your TIRA to a fund in your Roth IRA.

Re: 10% off Target GiftCards - Black Friday Preview

I received an e-mail last Thursday at 2am (12/11) that it shipped and yesterday (12/15) it arrived in a regular envelope, clearly from Target. It's a generic Target gift card, not the design I picked or the design they said they were sending but I don't care about that, just glad it finally arrived.

Go to the traditional line and click exchange. It will show on the left. On the right select the Roth you're converting into. Select the fund it should go into.

Re: Need help with men's exercise clothes please

Under Armour is pricey, in my opinion. I like C9, Target's brand. Regardless you want something that wicks away moisture. Does he do any races? They give away shirts that (often but not always) are wicking.
