News flash from the US Mint-I just called them

Dear friends,
             They do not have the 100 bags of PA quarters yet, at the US
Mint.  There is also no date for their arrival.  However, as I and
others have seen, they have already charged our credit cards for the
bag.   The woman said that they like to secure payment, before ordering
bags to be sent out.

     She also said that the NJ quarter bags would probably be coming out
late in the summer.  I thought you might want to know this.

    So, those like me, just have to hang in there until the PA D bags
arrive.  Sigh.  I kept looking in my PO Box daily, and no sign of the PA
D bag.  I guess I will just have to wait.

     Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
              Roxanne :)

Thanks for the information!

I was thinking about calling the mint because I ordered a bag of PA-D and
PA-P quarters about 4 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago my PA-P bag arrived and I
haven't received my PA-Ds. I guess I'll just have to wait longer.

Roxanne,

I received my PA D quarters a few days after the P's arrived.  That was over
two weeks ago.

I received my Penn D bag over a week ago so I guess they had an
initial batch, sold those out, and are now making you wait for the
next batch.

Does that constitute credit-card fraud? Does anyone happen to know what
the "rules" are regarding the timeliness with charging and sending?

The rules the C/C companies use are bent very easily.

There are to be no extra charges for the use of any charge card....

Ticket Master  has charged a premium fee for using a C/C,
The IRS also does when your pay your taxes with a C/C,

I have to when a person what's to buy a bullion item with a charge card, the
company called me on this once.
I asked them do you allow ***s to surcharge for cash, the answer was
yes....
I said fine, "do you realize what I sell has a cash value", got back a weak
yes....and was told I still cannot provide this service....

So I said "O.K., I want the same deal ***s get, I'll do the cash advance
service, charge the premium then the customer can spend his cash with
me....same difference no....

It got very quite

I explained... your company in it's merchant fee can not exceed my profit
margin. It's the customers decision to spend cash or accept the service
charge. This is made clear up front in the transaction. Once this is a
consumers decision your no longer play a part in the process.

I was told this would be under review.... that was over 2 years ago.....

As for shipping dates, our business tries to maintain a ship same day
policy, in order to prepare items for shipping the next day we will charge
the previous night. Only accident, injury or a overloaded shipping
department changes this end result.

The U.S. Mint has layers of processing, they probably get this charge
process ASAP only so this process does get completed. If they ship something
out and it does not get charged the consumer never remember the purchase and
balks to the C/C company and the charge gets reversed...."been there done
that on the merchant side of this problem".

One foot on the soap box,
Michael

I have already received my PA bags, both D and P.  And only a few days after
ordering them from the web site 2-3 weeks ago.

I see that now the web site says the mint is sold out of PA and DE quarter
bags.  Guess those who don't already have them are out of luck.

maybe I should have bought more then 1 of each as trading goods.
