Frugal Travel Guy reports that the US mint has lifted the per-household restriction on the purchase of coins online (which you do with your credit card to earn miles, then deposit into the bank to pay off your credit card).
In its place is a limit of $1000 in purchases every 10 days.
There is a 4-box $1 Coin limit for every 10-day period on any and all $1 Coin orders. Beyond that your credit card will not be authorized. If you need quantities greater than this, please send an e-mail before placing your order to firstname.lastname@example.org explain why your order should be exempted from the limit.
The above is from the US Mint website. Now the speculation begins. One caller to the Mint reports it is based on address so you can’t get 4 boxes and the wife 4 more within the same 10 day period.
Is it by order date, shipping date, credit card authorization date?
I don’t know yet, but will find out shortly.
I actually like this change if the cumulative limit has been removed and I can get $1000 every ten days. It helps the Mint, ,easy on my back and still 30K + per year for a simple task.
US Mint lifts household restrictions. Rules limit you to $1k every 10 days per address. Time to get back to work…is 3MM poss? No! SPG best
