How about a Vanguard door mat for when the Edward Jones salesmen comes to your door.
That made me laugh out loud.

It took quite a while for me to hear from her.
I had actually given up, and then... suddenly the nice pdf attachment.

But perhaps she was on vacation. And there was no rush.

I just placed an order for a couple of Bistro Mugs and the tan hat posted earlier in this thread (not on the flyer and in short supply as it was a limited run). The order will go out today Fedex. $5 Shipping for my order

I own the "Jack Bogle bobblehead doll" in its original box. I will sell it for $5,000 with all the proceeds going to The John C. Boglehead Center for Financial Literacy.

Best wishes.

Well, obviously you aren't Santa. But perhaps someone will purchase it with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause. That is a very nice offer as the doll has sentimental value to you as you know Jack Bogle personally. My Christmas budget is much less than $5,000. My family members probably won't pony up for me. I have been good this year but not $5,000 good.

I talked with Connie at Vanguard this morning. My coffee mug is on the way!

She also asked if I was a Boglehead and attended the conference.

The tan hats were a short supply? A limited run? That means I can sell the one I have for a higher price (if I can get someone to offer more), right? If there's only so many of the tan hats available my tan hat should be worth as much (or more) than bitcoin!! There's 21 million bitcoins in total but less tan Vanguard hats!! (if only there's a market for them).

Yesterday, Vanguard posted a photo of their mug on Facebook and everyone asked where to get it and their social media person said to send a private message to Vanguard get one.

If you "like" or add Vanguard on Facebook you can then send them a private message with your name and address.

Fingers crossed I get a mug!

I got one too. I saw Yankuba's post and messaged Vanguard on Facebook. The mug came about 10 days later. :sharebeer

My Vanguard Coffee Mug

Bogleheads:

I have been drinking my morning coffee from a Vanguard mug for at least 10 years.

Coffee does not taste the same without it!

Best wishes.

Bogleheads -

Would anyone know of where to buy a Vanguard golf ball? I have searched eBay but did not see any.

Thanks!

The first rule is don't tell people about your investments.
The second rule is don't tell people about your investments.

Maybe I'm paranoid and overly cautious, but anything with even the name of one of my financial institutions gets shredded.

Sure, if a someone I trust asks for advice or recommendations, I'll mention Vanguard... But I do not feel the need to wear a Vanguard hat, have a Vanguard cup at the office, or put a Vanguard bumper sticker on my car.

If it is true to form I would expect it to taste inexpensive, bland and passively brewed. :)

I sent a private message from their Facebook page and I have a new Vanguard coffee mug on the way! They responded in less than a day. I don't know how many they have left but all I did was leave my name and address through the PM.



Here's the mug:
