1/4 krugs @ 267??

Still broken methinks?

I think it to do with how much it costs to source. 

Im not sure the changes are for the better mind you. I asked about their buy to supply deal and Im not convinced it will work for them. 

One of the reasons people buy is so they can add purchases together and its not possible at the lower prices. Now you have to buy consistently and pay postage each time.

They are still taking bank transfer for products they have in stock.

They are going to lose a fair bit of custom from folk here who are shall we say, overly frugal. 

If it aint broke, don't fix it 

The  "+3% on most items" business model was my key reason for repeat buying. 

No need to do the mental gymnastics and calculations

Need to go back to selling cheap, 2% on ounces, 3% on sovs of all kinds back to lucky dip, no cherry picking. Hgm sovs were attractive until people cherry picked and then it became obvious some were getting the dregs much of the time, thats when I looked elsewhere and I'm not the only one.

3.5% sovs are not a good deal, other dealers at least offer premium reductions on larger orders but not hgm. Why not? The pricing of specific dates and heads without guarantee of condition is difficult to justify when others offer the same coin at bullion prices. The old way was better. Hgm used to be good.

I am going to have a long hard think about what you have said for sovs. I can fill that void of spot plus 3 with consistent quantity as well, whilst I feel like its a kick in the teeth I am more than happy to fill the void they have now left, I can certainly do savings on bulk.

I do not buy from them any more.  what i think they have done is increase their margin on smaller coins and some sourced coins from bullion vaults etc. 

I to think some were getting rubbish while others got the best, those cherry picking  thought it was right and proper that it was the way to go, now where are those people.  Again 3.5% on sovs from a dealer is not a good deal, you can get that at lots of places ( in better condition) and with deferred delivery if you ask so you can add a  coin or two.   

Also selling to HGM, why would anyone sell to them at the prices they give now, looking at the sell margins on other coins I would want more for my coins from them now.  The margin on Gold should be narrow eg 5-6% at most at those prices.

Dear HGM

You were my first love, we have been together since the beginning of my journey.   I used to feel so deeply for you, I’d do anything for you. When other doubted you I’d defend you, when others said I’d you’d betrayed me I defended you .

and this is how you treat me

i feel we have grown appart and you are just wanting more and more and not offering any thing it return.   So it’s time to cut our losses and move on

i hope you are like Snapchat and see the errors in your ways and come grovelling back with your tail between your legs begging for forgiveness 

until that day I feel our relationship is over

yours cornishfarmer

Order is now dispatched... who dares wins

Lucky you.  I put a couple in my cart, noticed the buy with card which surprised me since they wouldn't take cards before so stopped to look around the site.  Went to check out but my cart was empty but others had them in carts according to the page.  Waited a few minutes and they came back into stock but went before I could check out again.  This happened a couple of times before I gave up.

My previous days coins arrived today  but nothing interesting, a 69 shield and 82 liberty head half eagle.

looks like a good deal to me for someone looking to complete a set. Only have one. 

cheaper on ebay, especailly taking into account postage, nectar points and cashback https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2002-Gold-Half-Sovereign-Coin/273075919064?hash=item3f9497d8d8:g:YkUAAOSwNZdakD3d
