    Wonder if any of you have dealt with "Bullion Exchanges"? They sell on Ebay. They had some ATB Shenandoah bullion pucks for $116.00, good price. I got the last one, or so I thought. Item was shown as shipped on my Ebay page, with tracking number. Then they call me, and tell me they "oversold" the item. Guy tells me I can get a "KIsatchie, or a Blueridge instead. I say, no, don't want them. I tell him that I notice they have some slabbed Shenandoahs for 30 bucks more than I paid for the raw coin, thinking they might be interested in making my first experience with them, a positive one. Guy get's off the phone to speak to his manager, comes back and tells me that they'll give me 5 bucks off for my "Inconvenience". No thanks dude, give me a refund! Now, asking for the slabbed coin may seem like alot, but 30 bucks for ensuring a future customer, and me posting a positive message right now, versus this one, seems like a no brainer. Worst case, they would break even on that deal. Guy had to talk to a Manager to offer me a 5 dollar discount? Later Dudes!

    I had exactly one interaction with them.

    I had some ebucks to get rid of so I bid on an auction of theirs. Roll of SAE's which was bid to 359.00. I bought at the last second and got them for $364.00. With my last 90.00 in ebucks, not a bad price for $274.00. I believe that was on a Friday or Saturday night.

    The following business day I received the USPS tracking number. On ebay I saw that the label was printed at so & so time late Sunday night. I saw the item was picked up by USPS at appx. 0200 AM that Monday. I then see another entry indicating the item was a 'Service Exception' at 0205 hrs.

    I figure OK... I'll see if it clears in a few hours. It didn't. I email bullion exchange for an explanation. email back indicating that there 'must be a problem' (no shyte?) and they'll get back to me no later that 72 hours.

    Almost exactly 72 hours later, they email back (important: ALWAYS use the ebay interface for emails when things like this happen) stating, the problem has been corrected and my item ought to arrive in the next few days.

    The roll arrived THAT day. I was not impressed and that will be the last time I deal with them. Hope this helps.

    Just saw this while perusing dealer threads, but I can't help but think it sounds like it was a UPS issue and they had to investigate. Clearly they had shipped it if it arrived the same day as their follow-up.

    Placed an order for 2016 kooks with Bullion Exchange Ebay store on Wednesday 12/30. Order shipped sameday and arrived on Saturday January 2. Well packaged and the kooks look fine to me. Will be placing another order tomorrow when Ebay bucks are available. This was my first time dealing with them and I had no concerns.

    Ordered roll of 1 oz Aus Year of da Monkey through Ebad 2015.
    Effortless from beginning to end, with less cost than anywhere else.

    Skipped Ebad for yesterdays order from Bullion Exchanges directly.
    Bullion Exchanges had all seven(7) silver coin designs I wished to purchase.
    There was no other site with combo of all.
    The cost per item was less than JMB and tied with Provident Metals, if they carried them.

    I did get "lucky" and purchased 2 items which were no longer available by end of day @B.E.
    Which is the reason I searched B.E. after 1st choice seller ran out of most important foreign coin.
    This did kick arse as I was able to add two ounces to my order, due to savings.
    By check this order is, and I will report asasa (as soon as shipment arrives).

    The complaints above appear to be self generated.
    "They called" to state a mistake.
    Surely you do not ever make one... mistake.
    You were offered an available replacement for ownership not rental upgrade.

    You ordered and it arrived on time with a preface of USPS/Ebad message entanglement.
    HHHhhhmm Ebad and USPS on monday @ 2:05 am.
    Tell me coins were run over or had been fondled.
    Something other than he said she said.

    Regardless of the above entertaining, thumbs up thumbs down Siskel and Ebert seller rating.
    I could be eating my shoe when and if my second order arrives.
    I am betting B.E. bats 1000.
    As perfection of some other sellers well known, is absent of striving.

    note: the sites metal charts seem slightly... slow. But hey silver is completely horizontal right?

    Order, well packaged arrived friday, with Customer Service as return address.
    No coin showed abuse.

    Pandas look sweet in new China Mint sheet.
    I bought an empty sheet to investigate.
    Great for kids, gift with space to fill that is viewable, touchable, and stackable. ahhhble.
    Many different countries fit these mint sheets.
    Fill one and put up on the desk, so shhiiiiinyyy.

    There was a USPS tracking... disconnect?
    Showed in above mentioned, then to distribution center NJ wed pm.
    Departure from NJ am thurs... dat was it.
    Tracking attempts thurs pm, & fri am, listed as labeled, pending shipment... what?
    Checked BullionExchanges acct for shipping fri high noon, which showed at zip code & ready for pick-up.
    BUEX was correct.

    USPS tracking, something doing? Beyond regular doing.

    Cashed in my gift checks and went crazy,... not.
    Ordered 6 beauts however and all healthfully arrived.
    Requested part of order be inspected for milk spots I have seen personally, and heard about on 2017 Kooks.
    The pair I received were flawless.
    That is all I'll need of those Kooks as the Koalas look 10x more realistic.
    Family be getting '17 Koalas for EVERYTHING this year.
    BUEX is not presale offering however, and I have no gift checks remaining.
