APMEX.com – American Precious Metals Exchange Reviews
I have been a loyal customer for many years. I have always gotten the product in a secure way. I know what amount of gold or silver purchases with Apmex by just going to my account. I will continue to purchase my silver and gold from this company as long as I am in the hobby. I highly recommend you to buy from APMEX.
I would have to say APMEX is o.k. I am new to this and found their site and thought the price was good. I bought 3, 1 oz secondary market bars and I am happy with the speed of delivery and quality of product. I liked the fact I did not have to have a minimum order to be able to buy from them. But then I found another place that is cheaper for the silver AND shipping AND no minimum order too. I am not a rich guy and have to try to get the most bang for my buck where I can. I haven't bought from the other place yet, but I will be soon. I am not saying I won't ever buy from APMEX again, I probably will if the price is right for the product I want.
Large Selection, Large Premium
I have ordered several times, 5 or 6 I believe from APMEX. I have never had an issue with payments and the PM's I order from them are always well packaged and arrive in a decent amount of time.
I normally order my silver from Gainesville Coins, but there are times I do order from APMEX when Gainesville coins is out of stock on certain items I am looking for, mainly foreign coins. APMEX does have a large selection of product, but you certainly pay for their inventory with some of the highest premiums above spot prices on the compare silver web site.
In summary, if you have a specific need for a certain graded coin or hard to find coin APMEX is great and you will be satisfied. If you are just looking for bullion products, try Gainesville, Kitco, Liberty, you will do much better on pricing there.
Some Nice Coins, Fast expensive shipping as we all know. Primary complaint is their similarity to so many companies who censor us: I purchased several coins and a few were not up to par and when I attempted to provide an honest but deserved negative review, they marked the review as "under review" the deleted them without posting. So they won't allow a negative comment even if deserved. I refuse to deal with companies who violate our rights to privacy and free speech.
First Time, Last Time
Apmex returned my check without trying to cash it, along with hand scribbled note I took as a cancellation. I went elsewhere. Weeks later their collections department hounding me for returned check fee and their lost profit on my order. Pay up or we'll continue to harass is the message I get. Avoid these expensive money suckers, and their "customer satisfaction is our goal" is a joke. Most of my inquiries on this issue went unanswered, phone calls unreturned, no compromise, though they will lose my business and hopefully yours, as a result of money first, money last policy.
I ordered with a check. They did everything as they said they would do. I would order again from them.
Good but Expensive
I bought from Apmex for years until I moved to California. Good service but I buy large quantities and their prices are just too high. When I moved to San Diego I discovered Libertycpm.com and I now buy from them. HiHo Silver!!
Ampex. Expensive yet reliable
I just started stacking and since i see the banner for apmex on a lot of websites, i thought it was a good place to start. It seems that It has higher premium then other sites. Ive also noticed that the shipping was kind of expensive. I purchased a few ASE's and probably wont buy any more.
Quality offerings, buy in bulk
APmex has a great selection, and generally has most products that you want in stock. As most people have mentioned, the shipping charges are higher; however in my opinion you are paying a premium for the fact they are reputable. Try buying about $200 to make it worth shipping.
APMEX has a great selection of gold and silver products. However, their premiums are silly and their shipping is over priced. If you pay with a check it takes weeks to get your order and if you pay with a credit card they charge you even more. The kicker is you cant wire them money unless you spend over 5,000 or something. Which leaves you those two more inconvenient options. This company is huge and their customer service shows that. I ordered once from them and wont again unless they have something I can't find elsewhere.
