Order the 2001 coins. You even get a classic wrapper. If only the mint would direct ship the Susan B's or the fantastic Eisenhower's.

If only the Mint would sell more presidents under the Direct Ship program!

They keep sending out these flyers with all the new president coins being issued, but it's always the same old first ones for sale under Direct Ship.

Especially with the Lincoln coin coming up, the Mint needs to open the rest to DS sales.

Did anyone else today get the email from the mint lifting the limits on the NA coins to 1000 boxes per address?

Mr Pickles will be needing a forklift!

How do I get in on this? I called the Mint and Amex as well as my other cards to see how I too could qualify. I gave them the names of the people on this board who received the offer and they said they would look into it and get back to me.

Happy 4/1

For a minute there I thought I was really missing something

Yeah, and then what? The Mint decides it won't sell them coins under this program. But they never bought coins under it, and don't intend to, so that affects them about as much as my decision not to sell my condo to you affects you.

Same here .... caught me totally off guard, especially after I called two months ago and was assured Mint-purchases would qualify to earn points !

April Fools, ?

Is this an april fools joke. If so let's clear it up fast , so people don't waste a lot of valuable time and effort.

I am searching my 10 different e mail addresses to see if I am targeted.

Ugh, those with high-volume cards...

My email invited me to order 100 more boxes of the NA's...

Oh well, that's still good for a RT in the US

Your limit is due to the higher shipping cost for the mint to Alaska, same for Hawaii

I believe it is and I think it is a rather wasteful usage of bandwidth.

Not a joke at all. The email I received actually offered me the opportunity to buy 1,000 boxes of each President.
