Don't see PayPal on RCM anymore (re: paying for 10 pack) Confused Face

Also, barn owl available again
Web order only allowed max 1 pack per household ( max 10 pack through rep only )

I think just buying Stanley Cup Pack for $2.50, is not qualified to pay with Paypal. ( Paypal is accepted over certain amount )

8 quarters per person per day. Vancouver - March 18, 19, 20. Ottawa - March 18, 20. Winnipeg - March 24, 25.
Have a nice day!

It is not really worth the trip to Downtown Vancouver just to exchange " 8 new Stanley Cup Quarters " , which you shall get from bank easily soon.

Do you know which will banks have these quarters? Not all banks carry commemorative circulation coins. Its really hard to find them in banks. For example, none of the banks have the circulation 150th loonie. And none in my change yet.
Have a nice day!

RCM just released Stanley Cup special wrap quarter roll today on its website. For sure it takes time for RCM Bulk department to deliver these coins in boxes to banks.

I am just saying that I am not a fan of Stanley Cup and do not want to waste my time to walk to Mint Boutique just for few coins.

Just ordered 10 packs from rep. It is much easier to write e-mail to rep than to walk to Mint Boutique. lol.

p.s. regarding 150th anniversary coins in face value plastic rolls, RCM is fully focusing on selling sets with " premium " and postpone distribution to dealers and banks at face value.

By the way, I heard Mint Boutique hand stamped customers during coin exchange to prevent customers exchange coins repeatly.

HAND STAMP on RCM customers for few Uncirculated quarter?

Do not like this idea from RCM at all.

p.s. I do not go to RCM Coin Exchange.

No kidding? RCM insulting customers by stamping hands for quarters exchange. Do they think we’re all 12 years old?

I’d pass on it, too.

Yes, the RCM boutique hand stamped during the 2nd day of the last coin exchange for 150th looney. Was not hand stamped 1st and 3rd day. 2nd day also reduced the limit to $2.50 from $5.00 because they feared ruling out of stock.

I wouldn't get away with repeat visits anyway because the staff know me.
Have a nice day!

Have you tried wearing a wig and some lipstick for repeat visits? It's legal these days. You can even use the women's bathroom.

lol

I did felt pretty insulted when I went to Mint Boutique in Vancouver for coin exchange.

Staff ( Asian ) spoke to me loudly in front of other customers, " you were here before, right? You are only allowed once "

Do not want to go back anymore.

p.s. I only went once.

Good grief....if they only knew who they were talking to :facepalm:

You should mention that story to your rep...pretty sure he/she would be appalled...maybe give you something to make up for that awful situation

I know who you talking about. The guy's name is Andy and he is a jerk. He has been there a long time so he probably thinks he is the boss. There has been a lot of turnover of staff since the store opened in 2010 but Andy has been hanging on. Probably can't find another job elsewhere.
Have a nice day!
