Right now the only places I am still ordering from are APMEX, and JMBullion. I see Silver.com has a lot of the best prices on the compare prices site, has anyone does business with them? I couldn't find a review on here.

I placed an order for some ASEs with these guys (Amagi) last week. Price was very good and I used PayPal for a change instead of the normal personal check. Shipping was very fast and arrived nicely packaged.

As far as silver.com 11C1P- I read on reddit in a few places that they are owned by JM Bullion. Anyone know if there's any truth to that? They have pretty good prices but I can't find much info about them on the web.

I've never ordered from silver.com. Lately I've been using silvertowne for small orders of silver.

If they are the same company why would there be a nearly $1 spread on their ASE's & CSM's?

Guess that's why I don't run a business, makes no sense to me to pay to run 2 different sites that have 2 different prices for the same products.

Okay, giving these guys a shot. As it's a Saturday, I hope they ship on Monday and don't consider Tues. as being shipped "next day".

Wow just noticed they did not charge me what the quoted price was for the ASE's & CSM's The ASE's were listed as being $19.53, I got charged $20.31, each and maples listed at $19.09 ea I got charged $19.86 ea. Shady stuff right out the gate doesn't look good.

So they sent an email saying it did ship today and that I can track it. Only thing, they didn't send me a tracking number or link, and there is no number or link in my account page either. :shrug:

Silver arrived today. They never did send me the tracking # for it, so I was beginning to wonder what was going on. Place the transaction solidly in the "meh" category.

OK, orderd a roll of ASE from Silver.com Dec 31. Per their site, there is a 48 hour wait while they confirm first time credit card orders. All this happened, then I got an email saying my order had shipped (two day priority USPS mail).

here is the tracking info:

Yeah, I'm still waiting on an order I placed on the morning of Jan 2nd. When I email them asking them where my silver is, they start talking about the updates on the USPS site. I'm done with them and APMEX. Both have gone to crap on my last 2 purchases with them.

It looks to me that silver.com did exactly what they said they would do. 48 hours from 31Dec14 is 3Jan15 when you realize that there is 1 holiday and 2 weekend days in between.

The post office took 9 days to deliver a Priority 2nd-day package, which is extremely long in my experience. In my experience with 2-day priority, packages get delivered in 2 working days most of the time, and occasionally 3, but never 9.

So, anyone that blames silver.com for slowness like this is being unfair to them in my view.

yes, i have NO quarrels with Silver.com. (they were actually 20 dollars a roll cheaper also). I merely posted that because I thought the tracking was humorous. I'll order from them again. I want to try Provident, though, now that they have eliminated the sales tax in Texas.

even the postmaster here said WTF? this package should have been delivered a week ago

ordered roll of ASE Friday from Silver.com, in my hands Monday morning. (Of course silver has gone down about 50 cents an ounce since then).
