I am Now A Vanguard Flagship Client
What a pleasant suprise -- I logged into my Vanguard account the other day and noticed I was now upgraded to a Vanguard Flagship client.
Vanguard Flagship service is for Vanguard clients with over $1 million in Vanguard accounts. I ofcourse don't even have $1 million let alone that much in Vanguard accounts. However, my entire immediate family has all of our Vanguard accounts registered to my parents address and apparently now the total value of these accounts has exceeded $1 million. Therefore all of us have now become Vanguard Flagship clients.
I expect that I will reap some benefits from this service:
1) I get 12 free brokerage trades a year and any additional are $8. Since I trade so infrequently, I think I could use this as my new primary brokerage account and not pay any trading commisions.
2) Flagship members get Turbotax for free. I might not take advantage of this for the current tax year as my employer will likely be paying for someone to do my taxes with my current assignment.
3) Less attractive, but still worthy of consideration is their free investment review. At some point I could take advantage of this just to get a different perstective on my investment strategy.
