    They should have some kind of contract
    with the mint are who ever there getting
    there supply from, if they constantly sell
    out maybe they should get a clue, what’s
    the point if there’s no availability…

    and Krugerrands ? don’t really do maples.

    I wonder how often the change the price as
    of this minute it’s 2,074 which would be
    $3.00 under spot :)

    It's been a long time since I've posted. I had some issues that turned me off the hobby for a long time, but I'm slowly getting back in.

    For those wondering, Costco does sell out quickly. I've now bought 3 ounces of gold from them. All Pamp Fortuna bars in separate orders. They deliver in a day or two - and require signature. I had a local coin shop validate them with a digital tester. They are real, they are legit. There was no sales tax on them - California of all places and I made sure of that. As we all know, there's no sales tax on transactions over $1200 for investing in bullion. I'm not buying eagles at a $6 premium - but you can try adding them to your cart with 3 tubes and see if you get sales tax applied.

    They had 100 gram bars from RAND literally for $10 under melt at the time, and by the time I added one and went to checkout - they were sold out.

    It's one of those things where if you look daily in the morning, you might get lucky. But I can confirm that they are legit.

    Bonus tip - for Costco executive members, you do get the 2% cash back added to your account and you can buy on a credit card. So I get 2% on credit card purchases, 2% for Costco cash back - and saved 4% on each purchase. I was literally able to flip them immediately to a local dealer for a small profit.

    Happy hunting!
