Deal Alert: $1,000 Profit + Free Points and Miles from Buying Coins

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Over the past few years, one of the more lucrative ways I’ve earned free money and points is by buying coins from the US Mint. This is not the same method that many people took part in years ago where they’d purchase coins from the US Mint on their credit card and deposit them to their local bank. Instead, this is through PFS Buyers Club.

A few times a year I receive an email from PFS Buyers Club letting me know that the US Mint will be releasing some limited edition coins. If you are able to purchase them, PFS will essentially buy the coins back from you and pay you a premium. Not only that, you can purchase the coins from the US Mint with a credit card and PFS sends you a check. That means you are also earning free credit card points for the purchase and it is a great way to meet minimum spend!

PFS also makes the transaction extremely seamless. Once you purchase the coins, you will put your order information on the PFS site and they send you a prepaid shipping label. Once the coins arrive on your doorstep, you attach the shipping label to the box, and drop it off at FedEx within 2 business days. Once PFS receives the coins, they will send you a check in just 7 business days. It is really an easy way to make some money for not a lot of time spent.

Two new deals coming this week!

On Thursday November 5, 2020 , the US Mint will be releasing two different End of World War II 75th Anniversary coins — a Silver version and a Gold version.

V75 Silver Coin

The cost of the V75 Silver coin will be $83.00 and PFS will pay you $150 for the coin. After $4.95 shipping fee, you are looking at a profit $62.05.

V75 Gold Coin

The cost of the V75 Gold coin will be approximately $2,550.00. Exact pricing will be released the on Wednesday, November 4th. PFS will be offering a commission of $525.05.

UPDATE: The Gold coin will cost $2,600 and PFS will be offering a commission of $1,000.05!

You can place an order for both the Silver and Gold coin, or just one of the two. However, each coin will need to be purchased as a separate Mint order, as such, each purchase will also have a $4.95 shipping charge.

In addition to making money on this deal, you’ll also earn points based on the credit card you use for the purchase. I suggest using a card where you need to meet minimum spend, or one where you earn some extra benefit for meeting a certain spend threshold (i.e., free night hotel certificate, Southwest companion pass, hotel status, etc.). For example, if you use the Chase Freedom Unlimited you’ll earn 1.5x points for this purchasing — so approximately 4,000 Chase Ultimate Reward points. I value that to be approximately $80 in value towards travel. And that is in addition to the profit.

Things to know

I’ve taken advantage of these offers MANY times. I’ve never once had an issue and found the process to be beyond easy. With that being said, it is important to follow the directions of the deal exactly as stated. As long as you follow the directions, you’ll be good to go. It really is a simple process, I promise! But if you are risk adverse, this deal is probably not for you — or you can just opt for the Silver deal to get your dip your toes in the water and not lay out as much cash right away.

To be eligible to purchase the coins and have them bought back, you must register for the offer in advance. If you do not register and receive an approval confirmation email you will not be reimbursed. Registration fills up fast, so make sure to register NOW!

The coins go on sale at noon ET on November 5th, so make sure to purchase the coins at that time on the dot. You’ll then need to input your purchase information on their website by 1pm ET. You can create a PFS account and register for this offer here. You’ll also want to create an account with the US Mint in advance, which you can do here. (Note: When the coin arrives at your house, PFS asks that you do not open the box).



This is one of the best money-making offers I can remember, and then to earn points and miles on top of it is a huge bonus. I will personally be taking advantage of this offer, but you must do what you feel comfortable with.

So register now (if you are comfortable with this promotion) and set your alarm to 11:59am ET on Nov. 5, 2020.

This seemed like a great idea, until I read the legal contract. The indemnity clause basically says you take all the risk, and can’t hold them responsible or get reimbursed if the coin is lost in the mail for example. At least I think I’m reading that correctly. Seems like a lot of risk for only a $50 profit and some points.

Do the recent changes to American Express purchases of “cash or cash equivalents” mean this would show as a cash advance if we use an Amex card to participate in this offer?

I got both coins and decided to use my Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Figured I’d play it safe. I used an Amex EveryDay card at 2 points/$ for the Palladium offer and had no problems but that was in September before the change in terms.

Is the contract enforceable?
