@cpm9ball, Eric is handling the orders today.
I guess I was lucky then. First time in my life!
You, too, huh?
I assumed that I was put in a time out period, probably because I tried to log in too many times over a short period of time. About 45 minutes later I tried to log in and was successful. I was able to get my order placed for the V75 eventually.
Yes, but he ain't runnin'!
Location... I am in Florida and several others here tried and got the same Error, refresh, etc. Sister in Delaware had no problem.,.
Good for you! I had other things to do today so I didn't try. I'd like to have one but at that price, I'm not gonna go crazy if I don't get one! Certainly won't be the first time I lost out with the US Mint!
Somehow, that old address magically became my "default" address (I didn't do it). A rather expensive order got earmarked for that address. I immediately called the Mint to resolve the problem (once I saw the bogus address in my confirmation email), but they said the order was already sent to their Fulfillment Center and, even though the order wouldn't be shipped for at least a week, there was no way they could reroute or cancel the order.
They told me to simply return the unwanted item once it was delivered. I tried to explain that it was being sent to a bad address, but they couldn't break from procedure. I told them..."Well, I hope you send it with insurance because because I'm cancelling payment. You've been warned!".
Long story short, they still have me listed for non-payment of the order. Oh well...I'm not paying for something I didn't receive. I told them not to do it!
Wow, what a nightmare! Do you think the new person at that address got some free coins? Has the Mint tried to collect payment from you, I mean was it sent to a bill collector? As far as the US Mint goes, they're not my favorite coin dealer at all!
They just won't let me buy any new coins. I think of it as an "intervention".
Yep, good way to think about it!
I don't genuflect to government incompetence.
