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 "
Yes, very insulting. No need to single out a customer by raising his voice.

This guy Andy must have low self esteem if he needs to puff himself up by "busting" customers. He's probably not even aware that he's making himself look bad.

Especially that was my first and only visit there for particular coin exchange and he embarrassed me.

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.
Yupe, that is the one.

I think RCM prefer him as staff over customers...............

lol.

Just look at those eyes. To bad we don't have a silver coin like that. ;)
I wonder what other animal might look good like that?

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.
Guess Gwako has no problem getting bank rolls (helps to be a dealer since bulk coin program for 'regular folks' terminated at Winnipeg RCM)......anyway, the bank rolls cheaper than special wrap rolls (obviously) and up on his site now that we have reached March 17th

Hopefully we see him put up some GITD toonie rolls........need to know what the embargo date is for the Canada 150 mixed bank rolls? Presumably Canada Day July 1st but I don't know for sure.

Very upset with RCM atm

Got email today saying I have a $130 credit that expires in 14 days..........Grrrrr

Did not get any indication of this until this moment!!!!!!

I'll let you know how it turns out.......on the phone with RCM

[Edit] apparently they are fielding a lot of calls about this problem.

Solution: extension to end of April and if there's not something in next release I would like then we will discuss further...notes made on the account

It stated in the letter that they send out with the code. I used it for the MC member coin

Yeah the issue is, various MC members were never notified of their credit.

Letters didn't go out to some MC Platinum members, like myself.

In my case, I was just notified today (for the first time by email)

Had I known I had a $130 credit, I would have used it on Pysanka

The purpose of the $130 credit is because the monogram collector case is not being sent out this year.

I should have had Dec,Jan,Feb,Mar (4 months) to pick something to use the credit towards. Instead I only was given 2 weeks.

Hence my phone call, and RCM decision to extend the deadline.....so I have 6 weeks. Hopefully something worthwhile in April release
