I retired a few years ago and started living primarily off my IRAs. I had a financial advisor who helped me establish what I thought was a good investment strategy. Over time I lost my confidence in how the strategy was working and decided to manage my own investments. One of the issues involved bonds. It seemed like bonds lost money, just like stocks, when the market made a major adjustment… and they took longer to come back. I didn’t understand how they were providing me protection.
I responded to an ad by Advantage Gold. Finis ** contacted me and has worked with me since. He set me up with the ‘Gold is a Better Way’ book and Investment Guide. He prompted me to get involved with the Advantage Gold Website, Webinars and Platform. I am very impressed with Adam **. He seems to have answers for some of the holes in my investment plan. I decided to invest in some physical gold. Finis was a great help to me. He was patient with me as I learned the process. I will be digging deeper into the concepts I am learning. I will recommend Advantage Gold (and Finis) to my confidants.
I want to share with everyone who might be considering buying Gold or any other metals as a safe investment thru Advantage Gold. I have found new friends there who really make you feel at home and give you the guidance while your making this plan. I found the experts at Advantage. I personally spoke with Kirill, who is very patient and who educated me about the various choices he had for me. I really felt he cared about my investment and made it very easy for me.
Once I chose the metals I wanted, the next step was truly easy for me to set up. I placed some of the metals in my IRA account so the metals were sent to a special vault and are available when I need it. I also got some sent to my house and they arrived very quickly. Kirill also sent me a special gift and a book written by the President of the company, which I enjoyed very much! I have had a wonderful relationship with the knowledgeable and friendly people over at Advantage and will continue to call whenever I need their services. Truly a great company to deal with!
I was reading an article online and they had some materials where I could put my information. Advantage Gold was the one that responded and they readily sent me the additional information that I needed. Then, they gave me a callback and wanted to know why I wanted to go with the gold. I and my husband had two different reasons but they gave us time to consider what we wanted to do. There was no rush to purchase so we considered it and we felt like that was the company to be with.
I was fortunate enough to work with an executive who was also the co-founder and it was a smooth transaction. It was a full disclosure of information where he sent the material, explained it to me and I figured out what metals I wanted. It was fair and with no pressure. I would not advise anyone to purchase gold if it's not their decision to make. One has to do any decision personally and that's not what Advantage Gold is there for. They're just there to tell us whatever we want and direct where we need to be with what we're doing.
Thank you for your review Cora! We make sure that every client understands every aspect of a precious metals purchase before any transaction and were happy to accommodate your timeline.
I researched the movement of part of my 401k into precious metal for over a year. There were a few companies out there worth looking at, but Advantage Gold had a few things going for them, but one of the items that helped me pick them was that they are able to purchase and sell metals directly to you as well as arrange for the storage of the metals. This means that I don't go through a middleman to purchase my Silver and Gold. That is what got me talking to them. Once you talk with Travis or Scott, by the end of the conversation you have you know that they know their business very well, and more important, that they are looking out for your best interest.
Everyone that I have spoken with are very professional in manner, they call you back when they say they will, they have followed through every aspect of the transactions, from helping me move my money out of my 401k and into self managing IRA, to sitting with me asking me questions to understand my goals, to investing their time to ensure I have the best portfolio that meets my goals. I highly recommend this company, they may be others out there, but you won't find any as professional and understanding of your goals as Advantage Gold.
Thank you for your review Ronald! We are proud to have impressed with you every aspect of our customer service and to have been mindful of your goals throughout the process.
I’m so glad I picked advantage gold to roll over my 401K into precious metals. Micheal ** was very instrumental in giving me information on why silver and gold will preserve my wealth better than paper assets. I really appreciated the efforts he made to explain where I was in qualifying for a rollover and how to proceed. And they were very patient when I decided to wait a few months to actually do the rollover. Once I committed to the transaction Micheal and his staff were very kind and efficient in getting the combinations of gold and silver that was right for me. Once the metals were bought I was again impressed on the price that I received from them and their follow up on my purchases are also a nice touch. Overall I feel confident I made a good choice converting my 401K into precious metals and happy how Advantage Gold treated me throughout the process.

I have had greatest experience dealing with Mark at Advantage Gold, I was laid off from my job, and I needed to liquidate my holdings to tide myself over, so I wouldn’t get behind on any of my financial obligations. Mark made it a breeze. Which was a huge help. He even called me on the weekend, which was hugely comforting! Thank you Mark, and Advantage Gold.
Thank you for sharing your convenient experience!
All I can say about Advantage Gold is WOW! I made two purchases with another company a few years ago. I didn't know I got taken for a ride. I only received about half my monies worth in coins. With Advantage Gold, I spoke with Michael ** many many times before I decided to buy more coins. He was very patient, he educated me on the product, and when I made my purchase, I was blown away! 99.9% of my money went towards my purchase.
Glad to hear it! We strive to distinguish ourselves from other companies with our education.
I had great experience with Advantage Gold company. Travis helped me a lot in explaining everything and I felt safe with transaction. Their website has a lot of information about gold and silver. Will come back again and again to buy more.
Thank you. We are glad you had a comfortable experience!
Steve was very personable and very knowledgeable. He helped me understand gold and what the advantages are. It was a pleasure speaking with him and I have recommended him to my friends and family. I plan on pursuing my interest in gold with his help.
Mark ** was a superior guide through the process - he helped me navigate a process I was not familiar with. He went above and beyond with intelligence, knowledge, skill and above all patience. I would highly recommend Mark ** to my friends in planning for their financial futures as well. Thank you again!
