United States Mints Incompetence shines through, Again!

Coins | Stumpy

Yesterday I received an e-mail from the U.S. Mint telling me that I had met all requirements for free shipping through the Loyalty Shipping Program. I ignored this e-mail because I am aware of the requirements under this program and knew I had not met them, since the program resets ever Jan 1st. Well today I get an e-mail from the U.S. Mint apologizing for this "e-mail sent in error". It went on to further explain that yes, the original rules were correct and you would not receive free shipping until you had met those requirements. Wow, by itself, this is not a big deal, added to the sheer number of other gaffes, blunders, lack of proper planning and incompetent Management decisions exhibited by the Mint over the last year I have to ask myself... When will this end? How much more are we expected to endure? I have said this before, and will now say it again, if this were a private business, Mr. Ryder and his lackeys would have been fired by now. I say this to Mr. Ryder, "Good God Man, get a grip". An honorable, truly dedicated person who cared about the Mint, it's good name and the formerly loyal customer base would step down, after apologizing for his obvious incompetence. He is in way over his head and it continues to be shockingly obvious from the crap coming out of the mint, over and over and over, (and I ain't talking about the coins), Mr. Ryder, do yourself, the U.S. Mint and us, the formerly loyal customers a favor, Step Down, Now! Nuff Said.

Ryder looks like a donkey too. Do this with Biden's mint director at the end of the year if he sucks.

I just hope they don't make a complete mess of the 2021 Morgan and Peace Dollar bullion program. But, of course, they will.

Bama, your question about Oatmam & Gals, only during the Biker rally or if they ride in the truck with you. Lol!

That was me not Bama. I've been there. Those burros were everywhere. Fun place. I highly recommend it. I didn't see a coin store but they did have those fake territorial gold souvenirs. Oops! I see he had a question as well. I did see that girl in a flatbed truck. She did look back to see if I was looking at her. I was. I'm weak..

Yeah, the donkey reminds me of one of my cousins, just put a red neck hat on him. Lol

It isn't the fact that you didn't receive free shipping, it's just the incompetence. I am refraining from purchasing anything from the Mint until they resolve some of the pressing issues.

That mint director looks like a guy I met in Oatman, AZ. Stumpy, there is nothing I can add to what you have said, here and elsewhere. We all, I think, have contacted the mint to a big IGNORE! I would like to say I won't buy from them again but that may not be true. I'm weak if it's shiny. Thanks.

I don't pay that much attention to the mint. I have heard the website doesn't work well when a product is released. I am not a regular buyer of mint products. I appreciate everyone's review for sure. Buy what you like of course. Struggle with the website if it happens. I will be trying for those popular low mintage products though !

What makes you think we have not sent an e-mail? Like ever other feedback they have gotten, they ignore that medium as well.

What is so hard to go to there site hit contact and send an email. I'm the only one I'm tired of it. Refusing an interview with coin world was the last straw. He knew the questions and could not put a spin on it. He got caught !! I would like to know what the Treasury Department said to him. You do not refuse interviews after your system crashes!! Ryder take a ride we have one for you . It's up top. Looks.like a mule!

The Director won't. He doesn't care that much. My opinion. I could be wrong.
