$5 Gold Eagles (1/10 Troy OZ) for $125 + $38 s/h charge. You can buy up to 10 making your total $1288 per Troy OZ which is below the current spot price not to mention the normal upcharge for the Gold Eagles.

You will have to put up with about 10 minutes of hard sell while they try to get you to buy some graded coins, so if you are OK with saying no for a few minutes, this should work out well for you. The call was no big deal, and I expect they will call back to hard sell me again a couple times. I'll just say no, and let them know it's a dead end.

Info is below, and they will ask for the key code. It came out of one of the Sunday coupon circulars. they told me that code limits you to 10 coins, but that was after he tried to find out how many I wanted at that price. obviously fishing to see how much I was willing to spend.

Just realized the deal's online too, but I'm sure they will still call you for the hard sell, so no escaping that.

Hmm... I'm kind of surprised at the thumbs down with no comments including 1 for not a good price. I'd like to know where to buy an ounce of gold with a credit card, much less Gold Eagles, for $1288 especially when gold opened around $1350 today, and it currently north of $1360.

SDers will go to all kinds of trouble to save $10 on some instantly depreciating consumer goods, but at least Gold Eagles have a potential return (no guarantees of course). To each their own I suppose...Smilie

Just an FYI, i found a lot of internet posts where if they don't succeed in up selling you, they don't ever charge your card, and don't ship.

They definitely tried to charge my card because they had to call me back when my card company wouldn't process the order suspecting a stolen card. Had to call the card company to approve the charge, but I'm sure some of the less scrupulous sales folks do that. The guy I dealt with was pretty decent.

I actually got all 10 of mine today via FedEx. They are very nice, and came with 2 to 3 coins in each plastic coin flip/sleeve. I never did receive any more calls from the company yet like I expected, but maybe they are waiting for delivery first.
