Deal Alert: $45 Profit + Free Points and Miles from Buying Coins

Over the past few years, one of the more lucrative ways I’ve earned free money and points is by buying coins from the US Mint. This is not the same method that many people took part in years ago where they’d purchase coins from the US Mint on their credit card and deposit them to their local bank. Instead, this is through PFS Buyers Club.

A few times a year I receive an email from PFS Buyers Club letting me know that the US Mint will be releasing some limited edition coins. If you are able to purchase them, PFS will essentially buy the coins back from you and pay you a premium. Not only that, you can purchase the coins from the US Mint with a credit card and PFS sends you a check. That means you are also earning free credit card points for the purchase and it is a great way to meet minimum spend! PFS also makes the transaction extremely seamless. Once you purchase the coins, you will put your order information on the PFS site and they send you a prepaid shipping label. Once the coins arrive on your doorstep, you attach the shipping label to the box, and drop it off at FedEx within 2 business days. Once PFS receives the coins, they will send you a check in just 7 business days. It is really an easy way to make some money for not a lot of time spent.

A New Deal Coming This Week!

On Wednesday July 3, 2019 the US Mint will be releasing a limited edition Pride of Two Nations coins (twin set). The purchase is limited to one order of five coins per household. Each medal will cost $139.95 and if you purchase the maximum of five coins, after the standard shipping of $4.95, your total order will be $704.70.

PFS will pay you $750.00 for for the five coins. This means you will profit $45.30. You’ll also earn points based on the credit card you use for the purchase. I suggest using a card where you need to meet minimum spend, or one where you earn some extra benefit for meeting a certain spend threshold (i.e., free night hotel certificate, Southwest companion pass, hotel status, etc.).

Things to Know

I’ve taken advantage of these offers MANY times. I’ve never once had an issue and found the process to be beyond easy. With that being said, it is important to follow the directions of the deal exactly as stated. If it states to purchase X number of coins, make sure to purchase that exact number. So in this case, just 5. If it tells you to purchase all the coins in one order, make sure to do that. If it tells you to NOT open the box of coins when you receive them at your house, do not open the box! As long as you follow the directions, you’ll be good to go. It really is a simple process, I promise! But if you are risk adverse, this deal is probably not for you.

To be eligible to purchase the coins and have them bought back, you must register for the offer in advance. If you do not register and receive an approval confirmation email you will not be reimbursed. Registration fills up fast, so make sure to register NOW! The coins go on sale at noon ET on July 3rd, so make sure to purchase the coins at that time on the dot. Any coins purchased after 12:10pm ET might not be reimbursed. You can create a PFS account and register for this offer here. You’ll also want to create an account with the US Mint in advance, which you can do here.



This is definitely one of the better making money offers and I highly suggest taking part of this deal if you are able to. I am personally looking forward to making an easy $45 and earning another 700 qualifying points towards meeting my Southwest Companion Pass requirements for the year!

    • @Sazzy – I just opted in this morning. And just signed into a new account and the opt in option is still available/valid.

  1. Think twice before you jump on this deal. I am the victim of PFS deal last year. I joined the deal and purchased the coin and never opened the box and send it out by fedex as request. They receive the box and never post the payment. I followed up and was told my box was “empty” when received. and subsequently, they delete my order record right away from my account. They claimed have video clip to prove it’s arrived as empty but never provide it to me… I didn’t have the insurance on fedex and end up lost $1,400. lesson learned. think about the risk and reward. If you don’t leave in NYC area and can’t get paid in person. probably not a good idea to pay such an high amount in advance.

    • @David – Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I am so sorry this happened to you. I personally have only had positive experiences with them and have taken advantage of their deals many times. But there are definitely risks with taking advantage of any deal.
