A. We encourage all customers to create an account with us. A MintProducts.com account allows customers to access their order history, use all coupon codes, take part in the MP Cash Program, and also use our website properly. If you do not have a MintProducts.com account, you can create one by entering a valid email address and password on the sign up page. If you do not have an email address you can only place orders via phone and will not be able to place orders through our website.
Q. What is the MP Cash Program?
A. The MP Cash Program is a loyalty program offered to registered members of MintProducts. The program allows customers to earn points with their orders and then use them at checkout to receive discounts on their order. MP Cash is automatically applied at checkout unless removed (and saved for a future order). Previously, it was known as the Customer Reward Program. To learn more about the program visit our MP Cash page.
Q. I received a coupon code from you. How do I use it?
A. Coupon codes can be entered at two points, your shopping cart or at checkout. In either case, you will see a "HAVE A DISCOUNT COUPON?" link below the totals in both the shopping cart and checkout areas. Click on the link and a box will appear where the coupon code can be entered. Click the "Apply Coupon" button to ensure the coupon is applied. You will see the coupon adjust your total if the items in your shopping cart were eligible.
Q. I don't remember OR I need help with my password. What should I do?
A. There are two solutions. You can use the "Forgot Password" link on the sign in page to reset your password. In doing so, a link will be emailed to the email address associated with your account allowing you to reset your password. Alternatively, you can contact us via phone at 1-866-65-6468, and we can enable a temporary password. Once you are logged into your account with your temporary password, you can change the password. For your security, we do not have access to your passwords and cannot provide them.
Q. Do you charge any additional fees at checkout?
A. The product prices you see on our product pages are the prices that you will pay at checkout for each payment method - Credit Card, PayPal, Check/Money Order/Wire Transfer, or BitCoin/BitCoin Cash and Ether . Shipping and Handling is free for all orders of $99.00 or more. For orders under $99.00, or select shipping methods, there is a fee. Please view our Shipping and Handling page for our rates. If paying by Credit Card, PayPal or BitCoin/BitCoin Cash and Ether, there will be a 3-4% payment method "fee" applied at checkout. Please note this is reflective of the price listed on the product page and is NOT additional - the checkout is simply based off of the Check/Money Order/Bank Wire pricing tier. The "Payment Method" you see added to your totals is simply the 4% discount being added back to your account.
Q. Can I have my order shipped to an alternate address?
A. We do not ship to alternate addresses. For security reasons the billing and shipping address must match that of the credit card. If we receive an order with an alternate address request you will be contacted via email and/or phone to resolve the matter.
Q. Why is my credit card charged at the time the order is placed?
A. Many items on our site are based on Real Time Pricing and tied to the Metals Market. Charging your credit card at the time the order is placed locks in your price.
Q. How are your packages shipped?
A.The majority of our packages are shipped in discreet packaging via the United States Postal Service. Packages can be shipped by First Class Mail, Priority Mail, Registered Mail, Certified Mail, or Restricted Delivery Mail. On rare occasions, we will send packages via an alternate carrier. All of our packages are insured and packages of $1,000 or more require a signature. Customers also have the option of adding a signature to their shipment, for a fee, on orders under $1,000. See our Shipping and Handling page for more details and rates.
Q. I received an email indicating my order shipped. Why wasn't I given a tracking number?
A. MintProducts.com does not provide tracking numbers to customers. This is for security reasons and also due to the USPS tracking system. If a tracking number is necessary, we are able to provide it to you via phone or email.
Q. Do you ship orders internationally?
A. At this time MintProducts.com ships orders within the United States and its Territories.
Q. Do you accept cancellations or returns?
A. For information on our Return and Exchange Policy, you can see our Terms and Conditions.
