An Inconvenient Truth ~ Gold Buyers

How many times have we had a customer come in and tell us the 14K white gold chain in their hand was tested as 'silver' by some other gold buyer in Chandler? Far too many times for us to ignore it! 

Here at Turn it To Cash we have been in the jewelry business for over 35 years and throughout our decades of experience we have learned the hard way that there are lots of cheaters trying to scam people into making an easy buck. Currently in the gold, silver, and diamond buying industry we have personally heard far too many stories of people explaining their unfortunate circumstances to gold buyers and getting cheated out of hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

All of those crooks out there have unfortunately tarnished the reputation of the precious metal buying industry but we are here to restore your faith by treating you with the compassionate professionalism you deserve. Here at Turn it To Cash, your trusted gold buyers, we are accredited by the Better Business Bureau because of our top dollar prices and our track record of exceeding customer expectations. Feel free to stop by out office today, rest assured we guarantee your satisfaction and ensure you will be treated fairly and with optimal value.

We strive to be different than the typical gold buyers. 

Come visit us in Chandler - located at 1200 N Arizona Ave, #4, 
a 1/4 mile north of Ray Road.

We are open Monday - Friday, 9:30am to 5:30pm, and Saturdays 9:30am - 4:00pm.

What goes down comes back up

What happens when you hear that gold and silver have dropped down over $200 in a matter of a week's time? To the lowest in 2 years? Disregard it....unless you are heavily invested in gold and or silver (then you need to see your doc to get that BP under control!). And even then, we'd say, sit tight. These precious metals are still valuable. Once the dust settles, they will climb back up. But it does make one blue while it's down.

As for those that have unwanted jewelry but now think they will not get enough, it is a slightly valid concern but you will still get a lot more than you think. 
Now this change is not because we want to pocket more from you. But as gold goes up or down, so do the prices. All reputable buyers base their buying prices on the New York Spot Price. Yes, that price keeps changing but we use that as a basis to set the buying price.

Bottom line, here at Turn It To Cash, we treat you fair and square whether the market is $1900, $1600 or $1300! You know, just a few years ago, gold was in the $600 range! Imagine that for perspective.

You are welcome to visit either of our locations where we can evaluate what you have right in front of you.

Exceeding Expectations

Every week we have customers visiting us unaware of what to expect to receive for the jewelry they bring in. People bring in an assortment of gold and silver jewelry including bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings in varying conditions, sometimes like new other times beaten and battered. They come in to sell their gold, not knowing how it will be. 

Just this past week, we had a gentleman and his wife bring in their jewelry box, most of what they had thought was junk; they wanted to be sure before tossing the stuff out. They let us know they had been referred by a friend, one of our regular customers who let them know we are honest and trustworthy, providing the most competitive payouts in town. Our associate began by separating the jewelry into categories sterling silver, 18K gold, 14K gold, and 10K gold and proceeded to test each item, all the while explaining the process step by step.

We quoted them our price based on the weight of their unwanted, broken, scrap and the minute spot prices of gold and silver, a total of $700! Shocked and amazed that they would receive such a sum of money for what they were just ready to toss out, “Let’s do it before you change your mind,” they joked.

Here at Turn It To Cash, we exceed customer expectations of the silver and gold price per gram by up to 10 times. Feel free to stop by one of our two offices today, rest assured we guarantee your satisfaction and ensure you will be treated fairly and with optimal value.

Recycled Gold Recycled Silver

We all know gold has been mined from the earth. But mining and processing raw gold is not cheap nor easy. It is a multi billion dollar industry. 60 percent of the gold mined today becomes jewelry.

While we have data showing what happens to the 60% of mined gold, what happens to the remaining 40%? I do not know the precise answer to that just yet but am guessing investment demands and technological demands, like electronics, dental, medical and industrial use up the balance.

Interestingly, we can and do buy and recycle gold from all these areas. You know we buy jewelry of course. But did you know we buy industrial wires, dental gold, electronic components?
As long as we can test them, we can buy them.

And at our locations, testing is always done in front of you.

American Eagle Silver Coins....beauty and value

The Walking Liberty Silver 1 oz Coins are beautiful as well as valuable. Many people depend on these .999 fine silver rounds to preserve wealth and build portfolios. People also appreciate the artistic value of The Walking Liberty, also known as the American Eagle Coin. Two leading designers are responsible for these beautiful and highly coveted coins.

The obverse side of the American Silver Eagle's design was taken from the Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, a sculptor and architectural sculptor born in Germany who arrived in the United States at the age of 10.  
It was his design that originally had been used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin of the United States from 1916 to 1947. As this iconic design had been a public favorite and one of the most beloved designs of any United States coinage of modern times, it was revived for the Silver Eagle decades later.

The reverse side of the American Silver Eagle coin features a heraldic eagle behind a shield, with an olive branch and arrows. This spectacular design was designed by John Mercanti, an American sculptor and engraver. He was the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in United States Mint history.

These American Eagle coins were released in 1986 to the public and are minted in Gold and Silver. The demand for the silver far outnumber the gold. Just in it's 1st year of launch, 5,096,000 coins were sold in just 2 months. 

The Silver Eagle is struck only in the one-troy ounce size, which has a nominal face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.
These coins are minted by the US Mint.

People are buying and selling American Eagle Silver Coins. It's a good coin to hold on to. Or to give as a gift. And should you get in a tight spot, you can sell them as they hold their value well.

Gimmick Free Money for Gold

Have you ever walked into a business and felt it's more gimmicks and games than an honest transaction? Here at Turn It To Cash, anytime you come in, it's a gimmick free zone. Our policy is to treat each and every customer the way we like to be treated. Add to that our extensive knowledge and background that gives us the ability to buy and pay the most to you with our higher gold prices. 

As we test your jewelry to determine the value of gold or the value of silver, we educate you so you know what you have. We can't tell you how many times we've been told by customers who went to other places and were mis-informed about their gold or silver. It's disappointing to see the unscrupulous methods some businesses will adopt to make a few extra bucks. We have had many instances where a white colored chain that other places offered to buy as silver was actually White Gold, or even Platinum! The difference in payout of a sterling silver chain versus a 14K white gold can easily be 6000%.  Consider this and do yourself a favor - try to know what you have, in case you are going somewhere else to shop for gold prices.

With that said, there will be instances when what you have and what you think you have will not test to be that. 
We have seen numerous chains marked 14K and they are nothing but brass. We have been told it's usually a woman, who says she and her family are in need of money, and if you can give $20, you can have this '14K gold chain'. Well, that chain is not even worth 5 cents. 
Or a man will approach you with a deal of a lifetime - a '14K gold chain for 20 bucks'! This is usually in a parking lot. And again, the chain is a fake and worth nothing. 
We also have experienced jewelry that is marked 22K but it tests lower than 18K. 
How is that possible you ask? Well, pure gold is 24K, and when jewelry is made, the pure gold is cut down to standard jewelry making karats like 22K, 21K, 18K, 14K, 10K or even 9K. That is done by adding alloys into the pure gold into set percentages. Since this is a mainly manual process, some margin of error is present. Sadly, a few manufacturers in the jewelry industry are also unscrupulous like some of the gold buyers and they play with the gold content on purpose, stamping pieces a higher karat of gold but making it with a lower karat.

Wherever you go to sell gold, or sell silver, it's best to always know what you have. You want the most money for gold. Your knowing what you have will ensure that. 
While we here at Turn It To Cash believe in honest and gimmick free service, that is not always what other gold buyers offer.

We don't mine it but sure do buy unwanted gold

The World Gold Council states it is rarer to find a one ounce nugget of gold than a five carat diamond.
Can you imagine stumbling upon this rock then? The largest ever true gold nugget weighed 2,316 troy ounces when found in Australia in 1869. Incredible!

Do you wonder where gold is being mined? That has changed over the years. 40 years ago, South Africa was the prime country producing gold. 
Now China is not only the top consumer of the the yellow metal, but also the top producer of gold, a crown it swiped from South Africa in 2007. Australia, United States, Russia, Peru, Canada, Ghana, Indonesia and Uzbekistan join China and South Africa as the leaders in gold production. 

We don't mine it but sure do buy your unwanted jewelry, coins, flatware, silverware, Native American jewelry, broken chains, dental gold, bars. Our background has been in the jewelry industry, giving us a better understanding and you the edge. 
We welcome you to our location in Chandler, where we conduct all transactions right in front of you. No gimmicks here....we say what we do and do what we say!

Silver Coins....hold value and get you value!

Silver has been used in coinage for centuries. Now its not in circulated coinage but more in bullion rounds and bars. The most popular are the American Eagle, also known as the Walking Liberty. These are struck by the US Mint only in the one-troy ounce size, with a nominal face value of one dollar and guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. These Walking Liberty Silver 1 oz Coins are beautiful as well as valuable.

The Beautiful Silver Eagle .999 Fine Silver
But there are older coins still in circulation that have silver! Yes indeed. We still see and buy American coins from 1964 and prior, which have 90% silver.
So if you have dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollar coins dated 1964 and older, bring them in. That silver dime will get you over 12 times its face value!

Dimes can have 90% silver
Quarters 1964 and older are 90% silver 
Silver half dollars are worth more than 50 cents
And let's not forget the gorgeous Silver Dollar Coins that are also 90% silver, the Morgan and Peace Dollars. The Morgan Dollar was minted from 1878 - 1921. The Morgan Dollar is named after its designer, George T. Morgan, who designed the obverse and reverse of the coin.
The Peace Dollar was minted from 1921 to 1935 and designed by Anthony de Francisci. It was the last United States dollar coin to be struck for circulation in silver.

These Silver Dollars are a whole lot more than $1! 
Now whether you collect coins or happen to have them, it's wise to know what you have. Should you need to sell them, we are here for you.

Who is buying gold

Do you wonder who is buying gold? And why all of a sudden so many people are ready to buy your gold?

Well, the overall demand for these precious metals has skyrocketed over the past 6 years. The demand has driven the prices up also, with both precious metals becoming an attractive option for investors. Consumer demand has been on the rise, with the expanding middle classes of China and India who are eager to buy gold and silver. Add to that the demand of investors who are adding gold and silver to their personal investments. 

While these precious metals are mined from countries across the globe, that process is slow. It takes years for a mine to get to full capacity production. Another avenue to fulfill the demand is via recycled gold and silver, which is where Turn It To Cash, Inc comes in. When we buy unwanted gold and silver from you, that very gold and silver gets assayed, refined and then goes into bullion which down the road gets made into jewelry and rounds.

We base our buying price on the daily market price. That does not translate into the buying price to be the daily market price as we do need to cover our expenses of operating this business. But we are reasonable and that's where the difference is between us and the numerous other options out there. We don't play games. We don't try to underbid. We weigh the items 100% accurately on certified scales. We check each item for its gold content and price them accordingly. If you come in with a bunch of silver items, and while testing we discover some white gold items, we will immediately point that out to you so you get the benefit of that, not us. 
We believe in being fair and transparent in all our dealings with you. 

So if you are wondering who is buying gold, Turn It To Cash is. Call us at 480-854-4849 or visit our website www.titc.us.

Where can you sell gold? Come to Turn It To Cash in Chandler, located at 1200 N Arizona Ave, a 1/4 mile north of Ray Rd.

Come to Turn It To Cash and get the most money for gold. We are open 6 days a week, Mon to Fri 9:30am to 5:30pm and Sat 9:30am to 4pm.

Increase your payout with Precious Metals Gold Silver

Gold and Silver are both precious metals that have increased tremendously in value over the past few years.
Gold began its upward climb in 2006, when after years of being in the $300 to $400 range, it went up into the $700 range. After that, it kept climbing, hitting the $1,900 range in 2011. Now it's hovering in the $1,600 range.

Silver itself has been rocketing upwards. It was under the $10 per ounce mark till mid 2006 when it started jumping up into the $30 range. The all time highs of silver we saw was in 2011 when it peaked at close to $48 an ounce! Now it's down to the $29 - $30 range.

The jump in value of these precious metals has been mainly due to the demand for these precious metals. Consumer demand has been on the rise, with the expanding middle classes of China and India who are eager to buy gold and silver. Add to that the demand of investors who are adding gold and silver to their personal investments. 

Here at Turn It To Cash, Inc, we are buyers of your unwanted Gold & Silver and we believe in being fair and transparent in all our dealings with you.

Feel free to call us or look us up online on our website, www.titc.us or on facebook, twitter, yelp.

Where can I sell gold? Where can I sell silver?

It seems everybody wants to buy gold and silver from you these days, to make an easy buck. And easy bucks are usually made by cutting corners. That's where you have to be wary. 

Where can you sell gold is not the issue, as many stores just sprout from nowhere, with gas stations, oil lubes, barber shops, and the kind adding a 'we buy gold' arm to their business.
How they conduct business and treat you is important!

Businesses that add a 'we buy gold' component usually do so without checking with the laws of the city and state. They just see a quick way to make some money and start doing it. 
If you want to find out where can you sell gold or where can you sell silver, you need to make sure they have the correct license and certifications. This is a regulated business, with many laws in place to protect the consumer. Ethical businesses will comply with all these laws and not take any shortcuts.

Scales should be state certified so they do not under-weigh your precious metal.
Make them weigh in front of you.
Have them test in front of you.

We do all that and more here at Turn It To Cash. We treat each and every customer fairly and with dignity. 

We are located at 1200 N Arizona Ave, Ste 4, Chandler, AZ 85225. 1/4 mile north of Ray Road, off Arizona Ave in the East Valley.
