The shipping price is the biggest issue when dealing with apmex. You can usually get a better deal on here or on eBay. I also buy local a lot from a dealer. You may want to try that. If you are a regular they will cut you in on deals.

If you are buying small orders like 5 oz, go to silvertowne and they have a lot of stuff free shipping.

Best thing to do when buying is to just open 2 or 3 tabs at the top of your browser. Put the same items into each cart at different sites and go with whatever comes out lowest with shipping. Provident has proven to be lowest on many things recently. For awhile, JM Bullion was lower than them, but not anymore.
