I have one property tax bill on a rental due 6/30. Hopefully I have these orders by then.
All the $1 are currently backordered, so any delay right now is unsuprising.
On top of that, they just started their quarterly inventory, so that's likely to slow things down some more.

i feel like I might have gotten in on this too late....i placed my first order a few days ago and the expected ship date on the backorder has moved back, some people ordered two days ago and had their orders shipped yesterday, whats up with that? And also, it says my order is on hold, is that normal?

Luck of the draw

Yes. It'll go: On Hold -> In Process -> Shipped

Buying coins with CC

I read the FAQ and only two cards are currently listed. I'm not sure if the list is updated. Can someone confirm if we could use a Chase, Citi and Amex cards to purchase coins? I read somewhere that Chase has caught up and now classify it as an advance. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

What are alternative ways to buying coins that works right now? I've heard buying gift cards, but I don't like shopping enough to buy 6k worth of GC;s and would prefer some other method.

TIA

The rule is that we list cards that don't work, not cards that do.

The FAQ is up to date. The rumour you quoted regarding a certain card issuer is simply not true.

Or not. Strange things happen with the mint orders now. Also with GC orders.

Just be wary with AMEX as The Spanish Inquisition hates heretics. Coins and GCs make you an AMEX heretic. Beware Cardinal Fang and the dishrack.

Glad to read Chase is safe as I have a new card arriving soon and need to hit my 3k in 3 months spend for bonus points.

Is there any risk if consistently using same cc and new virtual acct numbers for all my coin purchases? I have been doing this across 3 cc accounts.
