As a First time Metal’s buyer Brandon and Steve made my experience very easy. They Explained the buying process from start to finish and made sure I understood everything we were doing. Brandon and Steve are both extremely knowledgeable and know their products. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. Marlyn
I was extremely happy with my experience purchasing gold at AdvantageGold. I worked with Finis ** and he made me feel extremely comfortable. He was very thorough and explained the entire process as well as strategies and pricing for purchasing gold. I will definitely return to buy my next batch of gold.
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.
Dealing with Advantage Gold has been a professional and pleasurable experience. My account representative was not pushy and gave me the space I needed to make my decision to invest with A G. Once I made the decision to invest with them, the guidance I received from my representative as to what to invest in was great and his recommended allocation of the assets made excellent sense. Overall this has been an easy, pain free process with as much assistance as I wanted.
I have another IRA with a different custodian and while they have been good to work with, their customer service falls short of Advantage Gold's. I am pleased to have them as my precious metals IRA team. In addition to my superb account representative, I received stellar support from the person that takes care of the documentation to transfer pension and other type funds to the IRA custodian for Advantage Gold. In summary, you won't go wrong by choosing this team for your precious metals IRA.
Thank you for your review Michael! Providing education and guidance for our clients before any transaction is always important to us.
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 watched a webinar and learned a lot, I contacted the office and spoke with Rob **. He helped walk me through everything they had to offer. So glad I spoke with them about this, I'm really happy about my decision. I'm feeling much safer now than I did before about my investments.
Jay was very professional, knowledgeable of gold and silver coins and friendly. He returned my calls promptly, plus I was very impressed how quickly Jay processed my order! The unit that finalized the sale by taking the recorded statements were very friendly and professional.
I have been procrastinating about my decision of what to do with my 401k when I heard about Advantage Gold. The people at Advantage Gold have been a great help in educating me on precious metals. The process to transfer was smooth. I appreciate Steve and Charlie as they helped me along the way.
I had a really good experience with Michael ** at Advantage Gold recently. Not knowing a lot about precious metals I needed someone to explain and guide me about them. Michael was very knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything to me. Thanks a lot for a good experience.
In talking to Jorge it fire me up (like jumping out of bed and get going). I am new. I don't know what is up ahead but ready to go. Hope I can use my time wisely I will get back in the next few hours.
