Just a heads up for a new PFS Buyers Club coin deal in case you want to get in on over $5,000 in spending. Tomorrow, March 17, the US Mint is releasing a new set of coins at exactly 12pm ET. The coins will cost ~$5,337 and all cards except US Bank/Elan (Fidelity) cards should work to earn miles, points, or cashback.
There’s some speculation that Amex cards *might* charge a cash advance fee. Incidentally, I just got the Amex Gold card in the mail yesterday and need to meet the minimum spending requirement. But I think I’ll use my BofA Premium Rewards card for 2.62% cashback (~$140) instead.
Aside from minimum spending, you could also gain traction toward spend bonuses like free hotel nights (Hyatt, Hilton), elite status (AA cards), or any other promotions you’ve signed up for.

If you haven’t already, sign up for PFS Buyers Club. Then opt-in to the deal. Only opt-in if you can purchase the coins at exactly 12pm ET tomorrow, 3/17 – these coins FLY within seconds and you have to be ready.
I’ve successfully completed three deals, the last one a year ago almost to the day. I’ve opted into others, but don’t always make it to the purchase page. It’s an adrenaline rush to get the coins bought!
But I mention this to say that I’ve personally done these deals before, plan to do this one, and recommend PFS Buyers Club as a reputable reseller with fast payments. And for this deal, you also get an extra ~$162 in profit. Not bad for receiving a box and then dropping it off at a FedEx store.
The coins will cost $5,332.50, plus $4.95 shipping, for a total of ~$5,337.50 in spending.
They’re expected to ship shortly after 3/17, but if it goes on back order or the shipment is delayed, you might need to float the money. I’ve never had to float anything with past coin deals, but mentioning it on the off-chance this happens. I fully intend to do the deal.
Between the $162 in commission and $140 in cashback, that’s $300 for a trip to FedEx. If you have an AA card, that’s 5,000+ Loyalty Points – pretty good if you’re gunning for elite status with American!
PFS Buyers Club coin deal bottom line

Go forth and prosper! You can sign up for PFS Buyers Club to get updates on future deals, even if you can’t do this one. Only opt-in if you’re confident you’ll be around to receive the box when it arrives (or send it to someone you trust, like a family member nearby).
PFS does a great job of laying out the instructions. This is an easy way to generate some spending toward rewards, especially if you currently have minimum spending to complete.
Feel free to share data points in the comments! Would love to hear from people using Amex or Barclays cards before tomorrow!
