If you have to ask, then this program is not for you.

Finally. I've been wanting to ask a doctor if Flomax is right for me.

It is humiliating and not an experience you want.

You did read the FAQ right?
I can't help but notice you made no reference to the tracking devices . . . RFIDs, tracking dust, aggressive Mint agents showing up at one's place of work, etc., but that's all in the FAQ too.

I always scan my coin rolls with a "magnetic wand" to deactivate the RFID tags in each roll before I deposit them into the bank.

I just have one account set up to ship an order to the office every ten days. Don't want to ship too many here since our security guard has to sign for them and he has made a couple comments about how many heavy boxes I get One day I joked with him and told him I was a coin collector and bought large quantities of coins and another time I said I couldn't tell him what was in the box but its contents was worth $1,000 and he laughed (both times were the truth LOL).

I'm in the same boat. I am only doing the 10 every day right now and have been getting them shipped to my office, which finds its way to my desk.

Just curious how others were doing it.
