Provident Metals reviews
Easiest to order
Ordering is fast and easy. Shop their sales (which are often). Ordering more than $99.00 gets you free shipping. Pay by check and wait about three weeks for shipment. Want faster shipping? It will cost more and really one can wait an extra few days.
Spot price alows .08+ in their favor
If I go to Kitco, or this site and look at the current price per once of
silver, then compare it with Provident, they are reporting a price they use for the basis for their prices of at least 8 cents per ounce in their favor. It is NEVER the other way.
I have had 7 orders with Provident so far and have had all great experiences with them. Quality of products shipped has been excellent, especially the Morgan Silver dollars. Have purchased mostly a variety of 1 oz. coins and rounds. All packages have been securely wrapped and arrived in a timely manner. Their website is easy to use and they will do an E-check order, which saves a few days waiting for checks to arrive and clear. They offer some excellent 1 oz. rounds that they produce exclusively. Check out the detail on their Prospector round! They also are great sources for Air-Tites, scales, and magnifiers,too. Always a pleasure to order from them. Always order some pre-1965 constitutional silver U.S. coins in each order and have gotten nice dimes, quarters and halves, definitely not "junk" or slicks. Their selection and prices have been very competitive. Good people.
Good experiences with Provident
Have had 6 orders filled and no complaints so far. Very competitive prices, larger selection, and well packaged,too. Outstanding detailed silver rounds by their mint. Wish they could clear a check faster. Usually very conservative on Morgans, nicer than expected! Easy website to navigate.
Reliable and Responsible
Have used several online dealers. I tried Provident being they had the best price inclusive of shipping. My order was processed much the same as any other reputable dealer. However, I had a problem with the postal service in my case, the postal worker signed for the package himself and left it in my box. You can imagine my horror to get a note from Provident indicating signed and delivered when it was surely not. I initiated a claim process and they were thoroughly professional and I had no concern with there insurance and tracking promises. I found my order on my desk after my 6 year old brought in the mail the day before. What a relief, no fault to Provident, intact, they shined thoroughly through the incident. I will patron them again as long as they remain competitive on comparesilverprices.com.
I have bought a lot of stuff from Provident. They are very reliable. Never had one problem with them. Maybe 25 orders so far. Only once was one item back ordered and took an extra week. It was when silver spiked and I totally understand the shortage. They also seem to have a larger selection of products than the other companies.
I love ordering from Provident. Their site is easy to use; their deliveries fast. They have a great selecetion of bullion products and the occasional oddity or interesting piece you want to tack on to an order. Excellent customer service and very competitive pricing on both PMs and deliveries.
Great place to buy!
I love this place, the only thing better is my local coin shop because I save the shipping cost. I just got my 'Don't Tread On Me' round from the pre-sale! its my new favorite coin!
-I wish they accept paypal, my only complaint!
i paid with a check and ordered many different things. Overall i was very satisfied with price and product. I just wish they were a few days faster. I would order from them again.
All good but...
I was very happy with everything except for the shipping time. I made a deposit directly into their account and it still took over a week to "verify" everything and ship from the moment they received payment. Too long in my opinion. I might try somewhere else next time.
