Congrats to those who got in on this! Sign-up for PFS Buyers Club so you don’t miss the next deal when it pops up!
Via my friend Meghan, you can purchase a Platinum coin from the US Mint tomorrow for $1,300 + $4.95 in shipping, then get paid $25 a week later. And yes, you can use a credit card.
The coins become available at exactly 12:00 pm Eastern time tomorrow, July 6th, 2017. Sometimes these deals go within minutes, so set a reminder for 11:50 am so you can be ready, if you’re interested. And be sure to opt-in (details below).
Then, PFS Buyers Club will send you a pre-paid label and pay you $1,330 for your effort – which yields a profit of $25. They send a check or PayPal payment within 7 business days of when you send them the coin.
Here are a couple of tips if you’re interested in this deal.
About PFS Buyers Club
I’d never heard of this company, so had some trepidation about it. But apparently they have a good reputation. My friend Meghan says:
“This could be an option for meeting minimum spend requirements. Tomorrow’s deal is good for $1,300 in spending.PFS Buyers Club will give you a bonus if you buy particular coins from the mint and send them their way. The process is really simple, they even send you a shipping label. I’ve done a dozen of them and never had any issues.The only moderately annoying part is registering your card on the US Mint’s website.The next deal is tomorrow at noon EST, and these things normally sell out within minutes.”
So I’d recommend going ahead and setting up your credit card on the US Mint site today so you’re not futzing with it tomorrow.

I wish I could do this deal, but I’m leaving for Montana on Saturday morning, otherwise I would. :/
This is an easy way to manufacture $1,300 in spending or meet a minimum spending requirement. Knowing someone who’s had several good experiences doing this type of thing put my mind at ease.
My friend Meghan also said sometimes the cash payments are as high as $150 on PFS Buyers Club deals! So if you can’t do the offer tomorrow for whatever reason, sign-up for an account so you’ll get notified of any other deals that pop up in the future.
Hopefully this gives you some ideas. Thank you for signing-up with my link if you decide to opt-in and get some free cash tomorrow!
