Remember when I suggested buying $1 coins from the US Mint to max out your credit card rewards? No? Well, I did. At the time, the problem was that they were out of stock. The idea then fell off my radar, but I was recently reminded of it when my son brought home a one dollar Presidential coin from school the other day. When I checked the mint, I was pleased to see that they have several versions in stock, and shipping is still free.
Here’s the Deal
Just hop on over to the US Mint and order $250 or $500 worth of coins. They come boxes of 250, with a limit of two boxes. You can pay with a credit card and, as noted above, shipping is free. Also note that there’s no explicit limit on the number of orders that an individual can place, so you should be able to do this over and over.
If you don’t want the coins, you can always spend them or just deposit them at the bank.
