Confusing Whtiman ad.

5 posts in this topic

If I buy 10,000 spiral Guide Books at $17.95 I have spent $179,500. I will, if the ad is as it seems, receive 10,000 American Silver Eagles and 10,000 2x3 “frosty cases” (whatever they are…), and 10,000 Guide Books.

Silver is $24.33 today and ASEs are bought by the bullion companies at about $29.00 each.

If I sold my 10,000 ASEs for $29.00 each I would have $290,000 or a profit of about $110,500. Plus I could easily sell off the Guide Books for $8 each to resellers (that’s below Whitman’s wholesale) for an additional $80,000 profit.

The frosty cases would bring maybe 25-cents each or about $2,500.

Thus, my total profit would be $110,500 + 80,000 + 2,500 = $193,000. Not bad for 10 minutes on the phone.

You get a Frosty Case. Nothing else. 

Very confusing to have the promo code ASE22. They should have used PlasticJunk or something similar. 

Yep...and their illustration clearly shows the coin.....nothing about "coin not included." Courts have upheld false advertising claims in the past....
