Complaint / review text:
Do not buy from American Mint! All they want to do is sell you cheap crap and hope you don't read the fine print or use a bit of common sense. I am not a coin collector; I have never even bought a collectible coin as a gift, nor have I purchased anything from American Mint in the past. All that, but I have apparently been personally chosen to receive a free coin. Oh, and the offer is only available to American Mint Registered Collectors, which is bull or I wouldn't have gotten this offer. Then, in the description of the coin, it says GOLD-LAYERED! And the offer is only good for 10 days after I receive it. How would they know when I receive it? There is no date on the info, so I bet if I waited until this time next year I would still get it.
Now, on to what so many people can't seem to read... This is a part of a collection and I can view future coins for twenty days. It says this twice (!), once in a smaller print, and once in a text size that is the same as most of the mailing! On your voucher, it explains the collection details AND what to do if you don't wish to receive more coins in the set!
I have received numerous similar offers from this company, so I finally decided to Google it to see if my assumption of scam was correct and found this page. So is it a complete scam? No, it actually isn't since they tell you what you are getting and how to not get more coins for high prices. I would say it is a scam in the sense that they lie about things like your status of an American Mint Registered Collector. Is it a complete rip-off? Hell, yes! If a company is offering something supposedly worth $79.95 for free, just pay for shipping, then you should throw that offer in the trash. No company is going to give away $80 worth of product for nothing in return! They just want people to fall for the gimmick and charge them crazy prices for future items.
