Just do a search of FT threads let alone other forums.

Just another friendly warning to all members, when you play with fire most likely you will get burned!!!

ETA: Maybe the scammers can explain the tax consequences to this scam.
This is no more of a scam than the topic of this thread, the Mint. All this is is a glitch which produces churn.

If you don't like the deal, don't do it, but for heaven's sake don't kill it for everyone else.

We've lost Amex GC, Visa GC, and Xipwire in the past few months. We don't need to lose any more.

There is nothing else like it out there. I suspect we'll begun to convulse and foam at the mouths from the sheer horror of coin withdrawal.

I agree it is a GREAT program. Easy way to get most of my $40K spending in on my hilton am ex for diamond status. Playing by the rules of $1k every 10 days means i only need an additional $4k in spending a year which I can do with one business transaction. With a Delta platnium or delta reserve, playing by the mint rules an easy way to earn to earn 10 to 15K mqms a year.

Oh, priceless. This from the person who recently found out about the diamond scam from Mr. Pickles via twitter and apparently is now participating.

ArizonaGuy on 3/12: My only real concern is what happens when some bean counter questions what you're doing. Have you had such issues thus far?

and then after the news broke here...

ArizonaGuy on 3/17: Discretion went out the window, apparently. Love/hate relationship with the internet, most definitely.

Hi

I ordered $250 in coins today. It was my first Mint order and I got George Washingtons!!!!!!!!!!

Will those earn the miles for my frequent flier miles programme or do some coins not count?

I have a credit card !!!!!!!!

oh Hey is this a scam because someone told me this is a scam and my friend owns a business so I don't want to get anyone in trouble.

I heard of a diamond trade thing too and I would love to get in on that because I like 60's rock.

Anyway you can personal message me with any tips and that would be greatly appreciated.

My own mint

I just bought 1,000 direct ship seeds on my AA Visa, so I should be able to start up my own Mint operation now. I will accept Amex GC's and Visa GC's, and you can choose from 250oz boxes of Peppermint, Spearmint, or Wintergreen.

Cost is $1 per ounce, and you should be able to to take them to your local farmer's market and liquidate them for cash. This is the next big thing people.

PM me to adopt a plant for pennies a day, and provide all the water and nitrogen rich soil it needs to flourish! You'll receive a 4x6 glossy in 5-8 business days.

shipping charge

I have been doing the coin thing for a while, just got hit with my first shipping charge, $4.95, not going to call the mint about it, not worth the chance they might notice how much they ship to me.

Just wondering any one else been hit for it?

It's weird because it shows the shipping as $0 when you add it to your cart but then when you go to check out it's $4.95.

The gravy train could be over. For my hilton card it is worth it since I value hilton points at least a penny each and get 3pt/$ charged so will still be netting $25 plus helping to meet my $40K spend for diamond.

Don't think it's worth it for the sky pesos on delta though.
