Those of you reading this blog has at least one credit card with 1% cash back on everything. If you have a Countrywide savings account along with this Visa Rewards card like me, you can get 2% cash back on everything. That is how I made 10 bucks free when I ordered $500 of John Quincy Adams Coins from the U.S Mint department. From the website:
To encourage robust national circulation of $1 Coins (non-numismatic, circulation-grade coins), the United States Mint has introduced the Circulating $1 Coin Direct Ship Program. This program makes it easy for retailers, financial institutions, and other interested parties to obtain smaller quantities of $1 coins than can otherwise be obtained from the Federal Reserve.
The $1 coins, wrapped in rolls of 25, are available in quantities of $250 (1 box) or $500 (2 boxes).
For this special program:
* The United States Mint pays for standard shipping and handling of domestic orders. Any special handling will be paid by the customer.
* Orders are limited to two boxes ($500) per President.
* Specific coins are available only while supplies last.
* Please allow approximately 1-2 weeks for shipping.
* All sales are final.
Shipping is free and you can pay with a credit card. Since my Countrywide visa is 2% cash back, I can get $10 in free money. Once the coins arrived, I simply take it to the bank and deposit. I know $10 is not a lot of money, but this is pretty much a free cash advance. Besides, free money is free money. Some people who are struggling to pay their rent can use this instead of paying a hefty price for doing a real cash advance.
