The dollar coin gig is over

Posted on: December 15th, 2009 by: Jason

As I presented in class last December, it has been possible to order dollar coins from the US Mint with free shipping in order to earn frequent flyer miles / hotel points.

I lost track, but have done easily over $80,000. I’m not trying to brag, as I was an amateur compared to some people, such as “Mr Pickles” who did $800,000.

But with the recent coverage by the Wall Street Journal and the LA Times, the gig is up.

I did try and spread the dollar coins throughout the city. Just ask my babysitter, people at fast food restaurants, and Costco.

It was fun while it lasted.
