Default Where do you buy from?

I used to buy from APMEX through Ebay so i can use paypal. I order for a bunch of people at work and we took advantage of the 50 cents per item combined shipping. no they have gone to free shipping and added the shipping price into the markup. so im looking for somewhere else to buy. the order is place is usually a variety due to what each individual person wants. usual order is around 15-20oz a month. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been buying from MCM on eBay with great service. Modern coin mart. They offer free shipping and fair prices.

But this also depends on what you plan on buying.

Apmex just lowered their shipping to 9.99 up to $500. It was around 12-15 for shipping a order.

Provident metals has 4.95 flat shipping through the end of the month.

Gainesville coins seem to have the best prices but hear their shipping is slower than the others.

If I'm not buying on eBay, I'll open those 3 other sites and add what I want in my cart and see who's cheapest

There is about 4 of them in Houston. I haven't been to any yet since they are still an hour away from Conroe but a simple google search has yielded me like 10 and 4 that I think should be decent.

I have never been a fan of any local shops in any hobby I have been into myself... tons of crappy attitudes, disgusting condition shop environments, inflated prices, crap selection, and overall bad shopping experiences... BUT with this new venture, I really would like to check out a few shops and at least give them a shot of getting my money...

Do you pay by credit or do bank wires?

Check out providentmetals.com, apmex shipping is a day or two faster, but you are stacking and not flipping, and provident is always cheaper than Apmex. Apmex has the best customer service(not that the others are bad, just a day or two longer for shipping), but the worst prices of any PM business.

for ASE check out goldmart.com, they are almost $2 cheaper per ASE, that adds up.
