Gold and other precious metal IRAs are an investment and carry risk. Consumers should be alert to claims that customers can make a lot of money in these or any investment with little risk. As with any investment, you can lose money and past performance is not a guarantee of future performance results. Consumers should also obtain a clear understanding of the fees associated with any investment before agreeing to invest.

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.

    We had a great experience working with Jay ** to set up our first self-directed IRA. Jay was very helpful, answering all of our questions professionally, thoroughly, and personably. He made suggestions to assist us in our decision making, and followed through on all the details. We have already recommended him to family members, and we're looking forward to reading through the information the company shares on their website and in their newsletters.

    My brother has been a client of Advantage Gold for a while. I've he's told me how easy it was to set up a gold IRA. I contacted Rob to find out more information and ask questions. He took his time and was very patient with my wife and I. I'm very glad we did this especially right now. We are very happy that we no longer have to worry about where our money Is invested.

    Inquired into purchasing gold and silver coin. Spoke to rep Jay and he followed up on my questions. He was there when I was ready to buy. Jay explained how the process works, educated me where to look for information on purchasing coins and helped in the final selection process. After the order he followed up to make sure we received the coins and when the coins were delayed, he stayed with us until we received our shipment. Overall a very good experience, we will purchase again thru Jay. Herbert

    I was concerned about the economy and the future outlook, I contacted Advantage Gold after watching a webinar by Adam Baratta. He was very well spoken and made me comfortable with the idea of learning about Gold as an investment. I spoke with Rob ** who gave me a quick walkthrough on their website. So glad to get all the information I did and can't wait to get started with investing in precious metals.

    Ben is extremely knowledgeable, professional. His Customer Service and follow up is exceptional, as is that from the entire staff. He thoroughly explained everything in an easy to understand manner, and walked me through the entire process. This is service you rarely see in today's world.

    These guys have all the tools to get you invested in Gold and Silver. If you're just starting out and have questions about the process, step one is to call the experts at Advantage Gold. Jay was a great source of information from pricing, buying and receiving tangible gold. Didn't feel like it was high pressure sales. They just want you to understand the benefits of owning gold and silver.
