It Pays to Compare Gold Buyers

If you watched the Super Bowl last week, you probably saw the ad with Ed McMahon and MC Hammer – both known as men sometimes in bad need of ready cash – touting a company called Cash4Gold. According to a recent article in Newsday, the Florida-based company spends millions each month on advertising on the Web and the airwaves to convince folks to mail in their gold jewelry, coins, medallions, or trophies to get cash back in a flash. What Ed and MC didn’t mention is something that the company’s Web site does: Customers may get more at their local gold dealer.

In other words, Newsday reports something that we have been telling our readers for a long time. That is, many local dealers provide substantially better buying offers for gold. And that if you are concerned about getting the best price for your gold (or for anything else you want to sell) information and comparative shopping are your best defense.

The Newsday article cites Amit Verma of Nassau Gold Buyers, in Hicksville and Rockville Centre. She says that gold sellers should go to several dealers to convince themselves that offers are competitive, and “get referrals from people who are happy with how they are treated.”

Murray Gordon of Whitman Coin & Jewelry in Melville, a store that buys gold jewelry and gold collectibles and which has a pawnbroking section as well, also confirms the fact that mail-in companies could easily pay less than what the gold could get elsewhere.”Believe it or not, a few earrings can add up to a hundred pennyweights, which can be worth $1,500, $1,800, depending on the quality of the gold,” said Mr. Gordon.

So San Diego gold jewelry sellers don’t forget to call around to your local gold buyers or drop by their shop before deciding who you are going to sell your gold to.
