What places dont put the return back on the same card?

BTW if you want more than 3k per month, just create another account.   That's what I did.
dont recall offhand, it is posted somewhere tho

Nordstrom has a pretty liberal policy when it comes to returns on a different cc than the one used for the purchase

No you run the risk of getting caught by Paypal and them keeping your money.

Is this only for the john quincy adams coins (as it seems they're out of them),or does this work with all the $1 coins on this site?

This article doesn't even factor the cost of shipping all those $1 coin orders for free, I bet just that cost the mint a mint (pun).

I don't get why people stopped doing this. True, the mint put out a "warning," but IME they are not doing anything to enforcing it.  I still bring my coins to the helpful silent teller and I am still being thanking for my business. Do you think the mint has a way of tracking that those coins came form me and send me a bill one day?

I highly doubt it. Given that the mint is ran by the government, it make no sense to thing that they are that advanced?

I dont see how anyone can care.   The credit card companys get their % and the mint gets rid of the coins no one wants for 3.33x there value and we get miles. Win-win-win
Perfection is my goal, excellence will be tolerated.

The mint/government isn't getting rid of them if the bank ships them right back to the federal reserve.
