200,000 Silver American Eagles Sold Out in 24 Hours… Amazing!

12/01/2008 01:53:00 PM, Posted by APMEX, 10 Comments

APMEX kicked off our 12 Days of Christmas promotion on Cyber Monday and the results have been phenomenal. We expected this would be a great sale on a very popular item, but didn’t expect the flood of customers. It was like watching the flood of people at Wal-Mart on Black Friday looking for flat panel TV’s.

Amazingly, we sold out of our supply of 200,000 Silver American eagles within the span of 24 hours!

A huge number of customers flooded the site, causing the shopping cart system to crash earlier in the day. With our site down, customers lined up on the phone to place their orders. Needless to say, our trading department was a madhouse. Phones were ringing off the hook from the colossal amounts of orders.

While we would have liked to be able to return everyone’s calls, the sheer volume made this impossible. We’re trying our best to order more, but at this point we can’t make any guarantees. Be sure and check back with us regularly. We’ll keep you updated on events as they develop.

As a substitution we have reduced the price of 2009 Silver Maple Leafs to $3.49 over spot in any quantity while supplies last. This sale is only available for 12/01/08.

Don’t wait for the next rush, get yours today!

This is a great give back to customers. Eagles or Maples at these discounted prices with depressed metal prices on top of it is a great deal. Soon COMEX will be empty. LOL

I tried all day to get my order thru with no luck. With the way things are going, I'd say it's time for a serious server upgrade. Your traffic won't be slowing down any time soon!

I'm off to buy some silver Maple Leafs now. I don't have any yet, so it'll be a nice new addition.

I just got back in town from a trip to the mountains for Thanksgiving...
No internet where I was.
I see I missed out on a hell of a sale... I'll never do that again

These platinum bullion coins resemble their gold counterparts
