Are all Chase cards out of the loop? the BA Visa to be more specific? Just need to do some 1k or $500 to do a min spending requirement for 3 months for some extra miles....Never used this one before?

How about the AMEX Gold Premier Card w/ Membership Rewards points?

Can someone pls pm me? I am dazed and confused after this tax season

I'm getting really tired of "Line was cancelled" (which is actually spelled wrong) on the 2010 NA's.

Yes, the Starwood Amex has worked fine for me, although I only placed a few orders as I don't really have a convenient way to get the boxes to the bank. So I've got a couple thousand coins in my closet...but at least I've always got tips for the delivery guys!

Please, everyone: check the FAQ. It will always have an up-to-date list of cards that don't work. Everything else works.

My presidents just shipped. Hopefully, the mint gets around to charging me and then I'm done this month.

Last December when I called in to have my credit line increased, the SPG American Express CSR said, "Oh it looks like you have been making purchases at the mint, what a great idea! I really should look into doing that as well!" I never mentioned anything about the mint... haha I asked if Amex was okay with it, and she seemed to think so!

I'm trying to time these for the Chase BA 10K deal - my last order came too soon to qualify me for May.

Any idea what the normal lead time is currently?

Must. Have. Coins.
I also hit my limit (and also my wife's limit). Tried different credit cards, does not work. Let me know if you try something and it works

Native American 2010 have been shipping 6,7 or 8 days after placing order.
Presidents seem to be all over the board.
If timing is important, stick with the 2010 NA.
