I think I'll just ask a friend to swipe the 1000 dollars on their business cc machine and pay back the fees... That their charged. Better safe than sorry

Mint and Gift cards(even though they're from Amex) purchases are both getting red flagged. They know the system, I think it's just a hit or miss situation.
Is it those purchases or is it going over 50% utilization of your credit line and/or prepaying.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Is it true that AMex will block these transactions to prevent people from getting points?

Here is alternative way to spend $1,000 at the Mint...buy 5 $200 E-Gift Cert's they now offer which never expire, and can be used for anything including the $1 direct ship coins.

Perhaps this is less risky...I confirmed the above with the US Mint CS rep. There is also no 10 day limit as w/ coins! Thus, a great way to activate multiple cards quickly and place the actual coin orders in a staggered fashion.

Would this make a difference as far as the CC is concerned? after all they probably both just show up as US Mint to the CC company. Why would this be safer?

true, but at least you dont need 10 days between $1k purchases and can activate all cards instantly...

What can I do with a box of a thousand one dollar coins?
Can I just bring it to my local bank and deposit it?
Any other ideas?
Thanks!

i think many people have been successful doing it with chase cards.
In order to understand recursion, you first need to understand recursion.

I don't think 1k will be a problem, but I'm sure abuse is.

As an aside, does Amex consider it a cash advance even if you're not purchasing coins that are legal tender (i.e. if purchasing bullion)?
