Hope I'm wrong, let us know if your merchant is identified. Please excuse my hyperbole.

I was a first timer about two weeks ago and ordered some NA coins. I told my wife about it after I ordered them and she said, "you finally ordered some coins....". This is after I had been talking about it for months. Just could not do it and then decided to go ahead. They shipped out about a week later and arrived in a couple of days.

Will attempt to order some more after I have completed placing these coins in circulation.

I've order about $x in coins since the beginning of the program, I use them but still need to deposit a good portion of it. I do have a good amount set aside for tolls and vending machines. Never had an order canceled.

Blue Skye, you're money. I'm in the 25c to 50c range, but in dollar coins.

I got the same letter and new cards for an old FIA card that I don't use much. I've probably only used it for some recurring bills like health club and cell phone in the past year. I've never used it to buy coins because I only buy coins with new cards to meet the inital spend requirement.

If I call the Mint, can I order larger amounts (like $10k) over the phone? I have legitimate reasons as I am distributing some of them at my car washes...

Uncancelled order

I received an unusual email this morning. About two weeks ago I had placed a $1000 NA coin order in my daughter's name. Last week I received a cancellation email with the standard working, unable to process etc. This morning, however, I received a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number for this same order. I verified it was the same one that had cancelled, its the same order number and its the only one I had submitted in my daughter's name in the past 5 weeks. I will post when and if the coins actually arrive.

Now I am going to go back and check other recent cancelled orders to see if they still show as cancelled.

I just checked four other orders that had cancelled over the past month. Three of them still show as cancelled, but the last does not. It was for $1500 NA's and on the track order page it shows one line as cancelled, but there is now another line below that one that shows $1000 NA's shipped yesterday with a tracking number. Is anyone else finding some of their cancelled orders coming back to life?
