I do have a print out but I cna not show anyone, and the mint has one also...

Today it is once every 10 business days, and I go with the flow...

All CC are still OK except BofA

80k is not a lot...unless it was at one time... 1600 pounds is a lot to lift..

Is there a general BoA problem now?

Did unrestricted back then mean there was no 10 day limit?

In day of old, the orders came every day and the weight was all the UPS man could hold...

The problem then was moving the coins not getting the coin...

In days of old many of us were bold..and the miles still remain untold...

I only give coins where no cc is useful.

I've had several other issues using FireFox on secure sites while ordering with a CC. It may have something to do with the settings I have on, but I won't bother checking since it's easier just to use another browser.

YMMV.
Definitely a Firefox problem. It's been awhile since I've ordered coins and I had forgotten about that, placed an order the other day, and had the same problem. Fired up IE, as much as it pains me to do so, and it went through fine. Got the coins today.

I wonder if 80k or 800k airline miles was worth not ever being able to get a credit card with a particular bank ever again?
