Flagship milestone: Thank You Bogleheads!

Post by sam5 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 2:21 pm

Wow! My Vanguard account reached Flagship status last week! :thumbsup

I am grateful to have found the Boglehead community because there is no way I would have achieved this milestone without the knowledge I have gained here. (Of course, the market helped a bit.)

Thanks especially to the moderators who keep this online community pleasant, civil, and on topic.

Automatic when you hit 2 commas. May take a few weeks for VG to make the switch on his accounts.

May take more than "a few weeks." If eager to get switched, you can call and poke them.

Congrats!
Did you take a screenshot of your account balances to remember the date you reached the milestone? It might be interesting to compare how long it takes to reach the next million.

I don't care for math, but I enjoy seeing what the power of compounding does to our account balances over time. :D

The possibility of a second million hadn't occurred to me until I read this post. What a concept! :D
