Well FedEx just picked up my package...what a nice guy and a hottie might I add. Hopefully they will call in the next few days with my offer. Based on my weight and kt he told me it should be around 905. Woot.

Did you have to supply your own package for the gold, or did FedEx have one?

I'm assuming that FedEx came to your house?

No I put it in a manilla envelope and informed fedex that i would be needing a padded envelope and an airbill. the fedex guy brought it right to the door and told me he would wait while i filled it out. usgb emailed me very specific instructions on filling out the airbill.

btw I sent it in to USGB.
I will update with my offer tomorrow! Wish me LUCK!
Alright, they called me and told me $1053. Said some of it was not gold, but silver. Said it was about 3oz all together. I asked if that was the highest offer they could give me and he said yes, that their profit margin was low, only 2% and he could not offer any more. Should have my check and my rejected stuff in a couple of days

Sounds great!

Did they say how they'll return the rejected stuff - ups? And do they just deduct the shipping charge from the check?

it's impossible to tell w/o knowing kt. weight but just guessing, i'd say you'll get quite a good settlement with that.

I have a (hopefully) different question. A DISer posted that she was going to got to yard sales to look for scrap gold. I want to do the same thing, but what do you say to the people who are having the yard sale? How much do you offer them for it? I don't want to cheat anyone, but would like to make a little profit.

BTW, I had a yardsale a few weeks ago and a local dealer in scrap gold stopped by. I took him number down and his offer for my gold. I compared it to what USGB would offer me. The local guy's offer was almost exactly what I figures USGB would offer. I got my cash ($2,450) without having to mail it off.

Thanks

Amy
