I see I was correct The Mint is still shipping , just not allowing orders after the max have been ordered .No reason to Close this thread then

IP addresses are easy; even if your ISP doesn't give you a new one when you turn your modem off for a few minutes, you can always go to a coffee shop.

Tracking could be by credit card number, email address, or snailmail address (using the PO's Change of Address service to track moves).

Cancelled again

I lowered my expectations , and placed an order for 8 boxes, $2,000 NA 2010. Again, cancelled next day.

I am going to take some time off, then when I come back I may try a new IP address.

These guys are getting their act together. All of my orders are being canceled. I'm even trying to be fairly inventive, but they've got it all covered.

OTOH, I realized this weekend that the farmer's market is a great place to use these - one of the few places left where I use cash.

Different billing addresses, mint accounts, and email addresses.

IMHO, the variable I am seeing, based on friends' etc experience, is the use of a "virgin" (as to miles) credit card.

Virgins get shipped.

I was able to use a very non-virgin card when I switched the card's address to different zip code.

Actually, I should have been clearer in my post 7780. I meant 'virgin" as to mint coin orders.

Good to hear that a switch in zip is helpful.

In any event, non-virgins can be good, too.

You mean switching the BILLING ADDRESS of the card to a different zip code?

It does not affect the authorization process?

I assume he meant that he changed the billing address on the card with the issuer, then entered the order with the new address. He might be on to something here.

Tried it. Still CX

Trust me when I say I've tried everything, I have. I even went as far as changing my location on FT just in case. I do have 1 more trick up my sleeve but its a long shoot.
