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

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!

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.

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:

Considering the above comments, it would be nice if Vanguard gave each of its Flagship clients one of these small items as a gift every year or so. I don't know what that would cost, but if Vanguard is giving away coffee mugs to random people who ask for one, surely Vanguard has the budget to give something to its "better" clients.

To that end, if anyone from Vanguard is monitoring this thread, I'd appreciate a Vanguard baseball hat. I've got a small head, so one of those "one-size-fits-all" type with a Velcro fastener in the back would be great. I presume that you've already got my mailing address....

If you have a FB account just click the link above and to the right of their page up top it says send message. That’s what I sent it through. I just left my name and address and it came in less than two weeks.

Santa, what I want for Christmas is the Jack Bogle bobblehead doll. I have been really good this year.
In addition to the recent posts about getting the mug via Facebook link...just yesterday I spoke to Connie and ordered a couple of items. She could not have been more nice...immediately asked "are you one of the Bogleheads?" She gets calls every week apparently...from all over. Looking forward to wearing my hat with pride!

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.

Hi Taylor -

Have the Bogleheads or The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy ever considered selling bobbleheads to raise money to support the mission?

Best.

Sitting with the new pour over stuff.
Mine came, too. Quite nice and fun to have. Quite subtle and restrained.

Thanks to Bogleheads for bringing it to my attention.
Received my #InvestingLikeABoss mug yesterday. I requested it in mid February. It looks great and I'm using it this morning. A couple of months ago I ordered the VG beige cap and and Vanguard coffee mug. Good quality products.

What is the connection between Vanguard and "#investing like a boss" that's on the free coffee cup?

Just wanted to update that I tweeted Vanguard and they do not have plans to launch an official store online at this time. Connie was great though in getting me a coffee mug!

It's not free. We all pay for them. :D
Sorry about that :P
Considering the above comments, it would be nice if Vanguard gave each of its Flagship clients one of these small items as a gift every year or so. I don't know what that would cost, but if Vanguard is giving away coffee mugs to random people who ask for one, surely Vanguard has the budget to give something to its "better" clients.

To that end, if anyone from Vanguard is monitoring this thread, I'd appreciate a Vanguard baseball hat. I've got a small head, so one of those "one-size-fits-all" type with a Velcro fastener in the back would be great. I presume that you've already got my mailing address....
The irony that that you publish this under the username "Random Poster" :D
How many Random Posters could there be? They’ll figure it out.
Well, thanks to a certain Bogleheader (who will remain nameless to protect their privacy) and someone from Vanguard who apparently saw my post, I did, in fact, receive a Vanguard baseball hat.

The one I received is gray, with gray embroidery, apparently made by Callaway. The embroidery is a tad hard to make out, particularly from a distance---it sorta blends in to the body of the hat like the beige hat posted earlier in this thread. But the hats fits and my wife says that it looks good on me, so I'm happy with it. Plus, because I wear a hat everyday as I walk to work, it will get put to good use.

So thanks Vanguard for giving me the hat (and thanks to the Bogleheader who passed along my contact information)!

That stinks! I was hoping they would relaunch the online store and expand the offerings.
