Title says it all. Pretty good deal. Use coupon 10 off 50 -- C10FALLFLASH

here is link : http://www.ebay.com/itm/SPECIAL-P...SwKtlWjqcc

Unfortunately, the category does not qualify for ebay bucks but after the 10 off and credit card money back certainly this is a slick deal.

Price is $1388 and coupon does not work...don't waste everyone's time by not verifying your 'slick' deals before posting them. Thanks!

He was saying that spot was $1346. That is pretty close to spot for a US coin, even without the coupon. That you can use a cc to pay for it means that you can close the gap even further.

As a side note, what kind of deal do these people have worked out with ebay/paypal that they can actually make money on this?

Lots of people forget about the CC angle..... if you try to buy PM at reputable sellers (like APMEX), they charge like 3% on top of the sale price to cover the CC fees they incur - here even with the lowest cash back card you'd get 1% back, which is worth $13.46 alone.

my local dealer pays about $12 over spot for buffalos. So for me I can make a little bit on this deal. -Bean

p.s. I have a 2% cashback credit card that I use for purchases.

not sure really why thumbs down, people (i am sure mostly Indian women) are buying it like crazy... someone bought 18 coins, so should be a good deal.

Just adding my input, I am not a gold digger.

as I said show me a better deal. I have yet to see anyone come close to this deal. Yes the coupon wasn't good for this deal but still at $40 over people are buying them like hotcakes. Funny how many thumbs down I get when I am just trying to help. Stick Out Tongue

I meant how does the seller on ebay make any money. even if somehow they are only paying 5% for ebay+paypal (very unlikely) that is still like $65 they are giving them. that should be making the margin negative, and even more so since they are probably giving more than 5%.

My guess is they either have a deal with eBay (less likely) or they have a large supply of gold they bought "way back when" on the cheap. It doesn't really matter which coin specifically they bought vs what one they're selling now. It gives them plenty of room to sell for close to spot (boosting sales) and still profit significantly.

They aren't making money, they're trying to unload them on the bump so they don't lose more money when gold drops in the next few days

Yeah, assuming by the time you receive them gold is worth what it is today...good luck.

They don't have a supply from "way back when". They turn this stuff like your momma turns tricks. They're cutting their losses before gold tanks
