Package was received today.

Was supposed to be delivered on Saturday, but since I had put my office as shipping address, it was rescheduled for today.

Haven't had time to open it yet, but will let you all know if things are not right. Otherwise assume everything was complete and packaged well.

When I go to their site, all the prices say "Call." Am I the only one seeing this?

It has been that way since they moved their business from Cali to Nevada.

Just got that email too. Also looks like their live prices are back online.

The sale runs through Aug 14. (I think)

Those are some LOW premiums. Very tempted.

Silver Buffalos $0.59 over spot.
Silver Maples $1.79
ASEs $2.29
1oz gold bars $15

Even though they were terrible at communicating, they delivered everything as promised albeit 2 days late. Considering they were moving, hiring new people, getting a new price feed, I'm satisfied with their service.

Glad they took care of their existing orders before taking on a bulk of new orders. With their issues mostly resolved, I will definitely buy from them again.

FWIW, Goldmart is increasing their "minimum for free shipping" from $5,000 to $7,500. They are in the process of updating their website to reflect that.

Told them their front page still shows $5,000. They honored what's shown on the front page.

They're still one of the lower cost options out there, but this may change (slightly) my purchasing habits. May end up driving down to San Diego to visit some shops and avoiding shipping altogether.

Looks like their premiums on sorted 90% and gold maples have gone up from +$0.70 to +$0.79, and +$34.99 to +$38.99 respectively.

Yes,there moving to Carson City,NV wasn't a smooth experience.I've done several gold+silver purchases with them and they were great.I found a gold item I wanted
and they matched the price saving me $200..Their price was very low on that item
but I showed them a better price and it was a done deal
I am planning on doing a very large gold order with them soon--62.15oz of gold(2.2kg JM
bar for 62 oz in carded 1oz bars and couple of other items I want.
I won't do business with anyone else
Thanks for reading

Anyone know if Goldmart is having delivery problems? I ordered a few tubes of silver Maples and a few gold Maples early January. They still haven't shipped the order despite 10 business days passing since they cashed my check.

I "chatted" with one of their sales reps, and he said they were experiencing delivery problems with their gold Maple supplier.

Not sure what to make of it. True? Or is he blowing smoke up my skirt?


I've given them a decent amount of business in the past 6 months. May be time to try out a few shops closer to home.

Could very well be that they are selling inventory that they don't have in stock (ie. on hand), but merely ordered from a supplier (or directly from the Mint). I'm not aware of any issue with supply problems with Maples, but it wouldn't surprise me to be honest.

I placed my 1st order with Goldmart on Jan. 2. All items ordered were listed as "In Stock, Ready to Ship". Received e-mail on 15th saying that " 2012 ASEs were not availible could they sub. 2013. If o.k. order would ship that week". I say no prob. I have yet to receive my order.
I have e-mailed them several times the last 2 days with no response. Called today and could not get anyone live to answer. They would put me on hold for several min. and then say to leave a message which was never returned.
I don't mind waiting as long as I know upfront. Needless to say I am very concerned.

edit: my order was all ag

Chigg - The US Mint could not keep up with demand for Silver Eagles. They suspended deliveries for ASEs to dealers until January 28:
Quote :
The U.S. Mint has suspended sales of its 2013 American Eagle silver bullion coins after running out of stock due to soaring investor demand for the newly minted coins in the first two weeks of the year.

Sales to authorized dealers will resume on or about the week of Jan. 28 after the U.S. Mint has replenished its inventory, it said in an email to authorized dealers on Thursday. ...

Update: My order arrived at the post office this AM and is currently out for delivery.

It took a few "chats", but they always responded. Their communication may not be the best, but they're still one of the cheaper dealers out there.

That said, their premiums are increasing to the point where several other dealers I've been looking at (CNI in Los Angeles, and Liberty in Del Mar) might be cheaper depending on the mix of what and how much you order.

Avoid Goldmart

So, I stumbled on to this forum because I was trying to see if anyone else has been ripped off by Goldmart.com.
I order PM's 3 weeks ago and till today I have been told repeatedly that my shipment is going out tomorrow, tomorrow and again tomorrow. They do not have any inventory. They have items on the website that states in stock yet they are not. I was told by their manager Nick that their insurance has lapsed into a month to month and that they can not insure shipments. These guys are selling stuff they do not have. I believe they will end up like MF Global. I am about to start fraud proceedings against them.

Hi monster, welcome to the forum.

Did you by chance order Silver Eagles or Maples? Sorry to hear that you are having trouble getting your order. Please do let us know how your order gets resolved.

Yup, please let us know how that turns out.

I've bought from them 4 times in the past 6 months and they've come through so far. Slight delays in shipping and slow communications is the norm. But then again, I care more about cheap prices than quick delivery - after all, it gets inspected then stashed away never to be seen again.

As mentioned several posts above, I won't hesitate to buy from other stores if Goldmart continues to drop the ball.
