With all of the hype surrounding the â€œcash for goldâ€ industry and the soaring price of gold these days, we decided to perform an undercover experiment to figure out which companies really pay the most for gold. We sent the exact same materials to seven different â€œcash for gold companiesâ€ and are sharing our results (and thoughts on the individual companies) on this site.
This particular review is for Express Gold Cash, Inc. (www.ExpressGoldCash.com), which is a â€œcash for goldâ€ company thatâ€™s based out of Salamanca, NY. Theyâ€™re a family-owned business, and theyâ€™ve been in business for over a decade now.
Before we share our results with you, there are some things that we wanted to let you know about. First of all, they have a really great guaranteeâ€¦ not only do they have a 30-day money back guarantee, but if you decide to not accept their offer, theyâ€™ll return your items back to you along with $20 cash. Pretty cool, right?
Another aspect of their business that seems to be different than that of other â€œcash for goldâ€ businesses are that their â€œGold Packsâ€ are insured for up to $5,000 â€“ which is great for their customers because you never know when your shipments might get lost.
On the topic of shipping, you can also track the location of your pack on Express Gold cashâ€™s website.
Now for the results of our experimentâ€¦
Express Gold Cash paid us $174.38 for the materials that I sent to them. This payout was actually a pretty solid one â€“ except for the fact that they returned our silver coins because they claimed that they have no value.
We understand that these silver coins may have been tricky to assess (considering that the silver coins were gold-plated) but they were clearly marked â€œsterling silverâ€ on the side. This is something that you would hope a precious metal refiner would pick up on.
Here are pictures of my interaction with them…
