As with any investment, you can lose money and past performance is not a guarantee of future performance results.

    I have really liked working with Steve on my gold and silver portfolio. He has had great patience with me answering all of my questions and has been very considerate of my time. I didn't feel pressured to make any decision and he allowed me to work through it all until I was sure about what I wanted to do. I would recommend Advantage Gold to anyone that is considering adding precious metals to their portfolio.

      I recently opened an IRA with Advantage Gold. Due to the volatility in the stock market I was concerned and thought it be wise to versify my portfolio but not knowing much about precious metals I didn't know where to start. Fortunately I received a call from Justin ** with Advantage Gold and he provided me with information pertaining to investing in precious metals. Both he and Shaun ** have got me set up in converting most of my stock ventures into precious metals. I definitely feel more secure with my investments. I have to thank both Justin and Shaun for their great advice in getting me setup in precious metals.

      My wife and I would once again like to thank Brad ** for his gracious manner, ongoing communication, and understanding of our goals from the beginning. Together, Brad ** and Richard ** made our 3rd transaction as seamless as the previous ones! Richard's precious metals knowledge and market insight provided the final ingredient to our portfolio. Now that's a Winning Team!!

      The first purchase experience was very good with exceptions. My issues were: (1) having to pay in advance which forced purchase of additional products rather than a refund of the overpayment and (2) no advance indication of the shipping fee for the items requested. This fee was used to adjust the bill to the amount I had sent, and was not entirely based on the shipment. My purchase was delivered in less than a week which was excellent. As a result of this prompt delivery, a second purchase was made without the pre-pay requirement. This was much better. The shipping fee was still adjusted, this time in my favor (for $0.50). Rapid delivery of both shipments is greatly appreciated.

      I was introduced to Jay by my sister, Debbie **. We attempted to do a partial rollover from my 401K with my current employer to Advantage Gold. Per my plan, I am not able to initiate a transfer until the age of 65. Jay was kind, knowledgeable & accommodating - wonderful customer service! I plan to contact him in 2 1/2 years.

      Thank you kindly,

      Patty

      Travis is very knowledgeable and helpful in the precious metals business. We have been very satisfied with his service over the past couple of years. Advantage Gold is definitely the industry leader. Their connection with Strata Trust IRA is also very convenient.

      The two salesmen with whom I dealt were very helpful and informative. The gold came within a few days after it was ordered. It was wrapped very well and confidentially. It would be difficult to guess what was inside the package. Therefore, the temptation to have the wrong person to open it was minimized.

      So far Cody is being very straightforward with explaining the process and I am getting ready for roll over 401K / IRAs through their company. He has answered my questions and I will have more at our next meeting.
