i have ordered their generic "they pick 'em" bars before and got nothing but northwest territorial mint bars that were still sealed. i would definately complain, you should not receive that garbage if you bought the generic 1oz. bars. what was your cost per unit?

If you buy enough from Apmex, you'll get a big tub of candied popcorn for Christmas. I don't know what the dollar amount trigger is to get it, but I did think it was a nice gesture.

theyre closed now, but i sent an e-mail on the site, im sure they will straighten it out fast, the rest of the order is really nice. the plated stuff is like $315 worth, and thats not what i was after. keep an eye out kiddies.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but did you check your order and verify that you bought what you thought you were buying.

they dont give freebies even if theyre plated unless this is something new. ive placed several big orders with them and never got a freebie, i do get the popcorn though. looking forward to my 3rd can this year.

Or that you didn't receive those in addition to your full order placed?
went and did the weigh 2 more times, and now see they either counted the liberian and the sams tolken as 2 full ounces only, or made a mistake. the sam has no .999, or does not specify its silver. AND CAN SEE THE BRASS CENTER ON THE RIDGE. the liberian is what it is, a made for TV "silver leaf" CLAD over brass trinket. the 2 items are 7.32 oz. some 5 oz over my order. apmex sends me my 2 oz .999 and we are square. its like sending a gold plated pokemon card to even out a gold order. screw that.

those casino tokens are .999 in the center if it has a brass ring around it, they only weigh around .60 of an oz though.

the .999 marked are solid. some say 999 HSC,heavy silver clad. this says nothing,and can see the brass on the rim like the filling in a oreo cookie. the decorative brass has been removed.

BTW, some of the Apmex employees hang out on the forum at goldismoney.info and Apmex is a sponsor there. I'd say that over the past year, or at least since they got a new company president, Apmex has gone down in customer service and their margins have gone up. I switched to buying and selling from Tulving almost exclusively since Tulving have the lowest margins.

I have never had anything as odd as that come from Apmex. they are great people, and I am sure they will straighten things out come Monday morning.

Free popcorn is a very nice touch.

im sure they will too, mabey another buyer would either not notice or be happy with the twin tower liberia bar at the added weight. idk. at first i thought i got more than i paid for till i googled it and found it to be only a plated "CLAD" bar.

I've bought 10's of thousands of dollars from Apmex over the years and never heard of them selling plated, the casino tokens are silver strikes, they contain small portion of 90% in the center....kinda like a tootsie pop....lol

Oh yea,,,i get a can of that crappy popcorn every year, usually feed it to the chickens....
