National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Oh, I feel jipped alright. Look at this subscriber insert from a foreign, English-language edition of NGM. Here, we get a "bonus world map".

But THEY get this awesome fleece jacket too w/ NG colors + logo. Where's the beef? I want one! 

Ha, well, look at the inside pricing, and wow, I don't know what the exchange rate $$$ is, but dang they pay $75 or $85 for a year down under, in New Zealand, Australia. Perhaps now I understand why, they are buying a jacket too. 

There's been other gifts over the 2000's too that I've seen (but can't think of right now) that are for them thar non-Americans.

note: this insert offer is dated c. 2015

Hey.. I want my jacket...!!

I know, tell me about it  : )

As of today, 75 Australian Dollars equals 57 US Dollars. 85 New Zealand Dollars equals in US Dollars $60.93.

...that still sounds quite steep! More than double the U.S. rate, so I suppose the international delivery/shipping is quite an investment in itself !

So what you're saying, Scott, is that they get fleece and we get fleeced.

ha, cute Tom, very clever.
