Beware of Imitators!

Recently, you may have noticed an upswing in the number of places saying "We Buy Gold." Our customers ask all the time: "Why are so many of these places popping up?"
There are obviously many reasons for the increased activity in the business, such as those seeking to capitalize on the surging gold market, or as a backup for an existing business - but as we always say: Let the Buyer (or Seller in this case) beware!

Drive around town, you will notice carwashes, barber shops, and thrift stores advertising "We Buy Gold." There are even new companies that are trying to use the "Sell Us Your Gold" name in their advertising - however make sure to stick with the original.

We have over 35 years experience in the jewelry business - in the wholesale, retail and contract manufacturing sectors. When it is time to sell your precious items, you want to ensure that you are consulting with experienced, and ethical businesses - do not settle for less.

As always, we will test your items in front of you, analyze and give you the best possible price. In the case that there is an item that we do not specialize in that you will receive more for - we will tell you up front.
The goal is to build lasting business relationships, and to deliver an honest and enjoyable customer experience.
Visit the original Sell Us Your Gold at our 2 locations:

Gilbert, AZ 85234

Let The Holiday Rush Begin!

Now that the Thanksgiving and Black Friday rush have passed - it's now onto SHOPPING SEASON! There is no better way to get that holiday cash than to sell your broken, scrap or mismatched jewelry items.
One recent Sell Us Your Gold customer came into our Scottsdale location with an old bracelet that was in fashion in the 80's. She had kept it in her jewelry box, hedging her bets on seeing whether it would become fashionable again - but finally gave up on that hope. She brought the bracelet into our office - we quickly tested the item - and shocked her with our offer: $600.00!
In her own words: "I would have been happy with $100!"
With the gold, silver and platinum markets so high, stories such as these have become more and more common. No matter how tangled, bent or unfashionable the jewelry item - they are still worth good money. We will explain the entire process to you, and test the items before your appointment needed.
Come into either location and get that holiday gift money - you will not be disappointed!

Exceeding Expectations! (again)

This week, a customer came in to sell a large 14k necklace that she has had for years. She had previously taken the same item to a well-known heavily advertised competitor for a quote as well. When we tested, weighed and priced the item, she was in shock: $870.00 was the offer she received at Sell Us Your Gold.
How much did the competitor offer her? $500.
Our price nearly doubled that of the well known competitor - suffice to say, that the customer was very pleased with her experience, and disgusted at the lowball offer she received elsewhere.

She also stated that she wished she sold her previous items to us - because she knows that she could have received more at Sell Us Your Gold!

This story is something that we are hearing daily - with satisfied customers visiting our Gilbert and Scottsdale locations. Not sure? See for yourself - come visit us at either location, and you will receive a consistent customer experience in a safe, courteous and professional environment.

Another Record Day!

As we transition into October, we are seeing a continued upward trend in the Gold, Silver and Platinum markets. All three metals have risen sharply - with Gold being the most intriguing. As of today, the Gold market has risen to $1316.00 per ounce, which is another record.
This would be an ideal time to sell your broken, scrap or mismatched items - and get paid record amounts for it! We continually adjust our pricing to fit market conditions, therefore our payouts have been skyrocketing recently!
Come visit our Scottsdale or Gilbert locations, and we will outline the entire process for you. We will separate the items, conduct a brief test, and you will be paid on the spot. Enjoy a cool drink on us, get paid, and leave a satisfied customer. That is why the majority of our business are repeat and referral customers - because we focus on the customer experience.

They Paid You What???

Here is a true story that we are passing on from a recent Sell Us Your Gold customer. This customer came into our Gilbert location a week ago, and wanted to receive pricing on her unwanted gold jewelry. After our resident experts tested the items and calculated the pricing based off the market value - we told her the price: $166.00.
The customer was truly astonished - and here's why. She saw a commercial on TV from an un-named (large firm) who encourages customers to mail in their gold. She thought to herself, "Hmm...this looks easy enough." Little did she know that she was in for an epic battle.
She requested one of those gold kits that many of these places advertise - a prepaid envelope sent to your front door. She followed the instructions and sent the very same items that she brought to our store. Her total payout? $11.00.

That's $11.00, just in case you thought this was a typo, or the decimal was misplaced. Suffice it to say, the customer was furious. She escalated the issue to the mail-it-in corporation, who initially met her frustration with very little empathy. Finally, after weeks of haggling, and the threat of legal action overhead, the firm finally relented and sent her items back intact.

We have heard many similar stories, and the moral of the story is: Sell your items to professionals. You should be there during the transaction, to see the entire process. Sadly, many people just accept the payout that they receive from these firms, and are being cheated out of hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. By just taking her items into Sell Us Your Gold, she received over 15 times what she received from the competitor.

She was truly happy after selling her items to us - due to the speedy, precise and professional nature of how we conduct business. Come visit our Gilbert or Scottsdale stores to see for yourself.

Records Are Meant to be Broken!

Another week, another set of all-time highs for the Gold Market! Although the gold market was previously thought to be of the bubble-variety, it is now becoming clear that these high prices are going to be around for a while.
We could be seeing the market hit unthought of levels such as $1,400.00 per ounce, according to some analysts. If you have been hanging onto your old, unwanted jewelry for years and years and are now thinking about selling - now is the time! We continue to be a market leader in terms of our pricing, adjusting upward as the market continues to rise.
Remember, Sell Us Your Gold does not deal in small print, and does not require minimums in order to receive the best pricing. We offer a professional, consistent experience that has helped us gain our stellar business reputation. Judge for yourself, come by and see either of our locations - Scottsdale or Gilbert. You will receive an up-front honest assessment of your jewelry items, and most importantly Maximum Value on your Gold, Silver and Platinum items.

Another Resurgence in Gold Prices!

With the latest upswing in the gold market - $1,228.00 per ounce as of Friday, it is once again a great opportunity to sell your broken, scrap or unwanted items. Many analysts had predicted that the gold market cannot sustain above the $1,200 mark, however we have seen it cross this historic threshhold for the 3rd time in the last calendar year.
Each subsequent time that the market crosses the $1,200 plateau, we are seeing higher levels of resistance, i.e. $1,215/ounce in December, then over $1,250 just a few months back. The prices generally have dropped, however are stabilizing at higher levels each time. Many analysts say that the market may cross over the $1,350/ounce range by December. The truth is, that nobody knows for sure - but it is interesting to examine the trends that have taken place over the last year.
This only means good news for the consumer: Higher payouts for your gold, silver and platinum items. Now the question remains: Where should you sell your jewelry and coins?
Beware of unscrupulous dealers that are tending to pop up on every corner, as many are looking to make a quick buck. Within the last year, we have seen many of these type of outfits come and go - reason being that they are not in the industry for the right reasons. Also be wary of outfits promising hundreds and hundreds of dollars of "bonus cash" or gas money in their advertisements. If they have to add hundreds of dollars in bonus cash, it is likely that their up front pricing is not high.
At Sell Us Your Gold, we treat all our customers with integrity and honesty. Visit our Gilbert or Scottsdale location, and you will see how professionals handle the art of purchasing your jewelry. We ensure that you are comfortable with the process, and offer highly competitive pricing.
The proof is in our clientele. The majority of our business is through repeats and referrals. It is not about one transaction, it is about building a long-term business relationship. We conduct business in a safe, professional environment - and have changed the landscape of the gold buying business.

Returning Integrity to the Gold Business

As we continue to interact with our growing customer base, it is truly shocking to hear some of the experiences that they have encountered at other "Gold Buyers" throughout the Valley. Tales of deception, bait & switch tactics, along with leaving with the feeling that they got an unfair deal are commonplace. It is the goal of Sell Us Your Gold to change that perception.
We represent 2 generations within the jewelry industry - with over 35 years experience in the wholesale, retail and purchasing aspects of the gold business. Our extensive knowledge of the industry, and commitment to integrity will ensure that you receive the best possible experience when you come to our 2 locations.
We always encourage our customers to bring in their items for a full analysis, and will give an honest, fair assessment on whether we can provide maximum value for their items. For example, a repeat customer wanted to sell a 130 year old coin that was in graded mint condition. Knowing that local coin collectors may pay more for this item, we encouraged the customer to check with these collectors to receive maximum value. Remember, we are not the "typical" gold buyer!
We test each item in front of you, explaining the process to ensure you will be comfortable in selling your valuable gold, silver and platinum items. Our pricing structure is very upfront, and consistent with changes/fluctuations in the precious metals market.
Still not convinced? Come into our Gilbert or Scottsdale location to experience for yourself!

Our Gilbert location just got a face-lift, with a new and improved lighted-sign! Just another proof, that Sell Us Your Gold is here for the long-term, and not one of your run of the mill "we buy gold" places popping up on every corner.

With over 35 years in the jewelry industry, as wholesalers, retailers and now buyers - you can rest assured that you will be speaking to experts who are out to give you an honest, fair deal.

Gold is once again over $1150.00 per ounce, which makes this a perfect time to sell your unwanted, scrap or broken gold items.

Are All Coupons Created Equal?

When flipping through your local coupon books, newspapers, mailers, etc., you would have to notice the upswing in the number of gold buyers offering "Bonus Payouts." Its a great way to attract attention - even we at Sell Us Your Gold do it as well. But the question is: Are all coupons created equal?

There are buyers who offer 5% extra payouts, 10% extra payouts, even as high as 25% extra. Do the higher coupons promise the best possible payout? The answer is no.

Be sure to read the fine print written on the coupon. Some buyers publish a higher amount of bonus cash, but expect a near impossible amount in order to achieve the so-called bonus payout. One store required over $2,000.00 minimum in order to achieve their advertised payout. The vast majority of consumers would not have that much jewelry to begin with.

Secondly, if there are buyers who are offering exorbitant amounts like 20% or 25% extra, it is likely that their up front pricing is not very good.

At Sell Us Your Gold, you can ensure that our prices are extraordinary. First, we do not require any minimums if you bring in a coupon. Whether its $3.00 or $3,000, we will honor the coupon regardless. Secondly, our up front, honest pricing ensures that you are getting the best deal, even without the coupon. We test the items in front of you - ensuring that you will get maximum value on your Gold, Silver and Platinum items.

What has been the common thread among Sell Us Your Gold customers versus the competition? Our customers consistently state that we carry ourselves with honesty, integrity and give them no doubt that we are giving them an honest, fair deal. That is why the majority of Sell Us Your Gold customers are repeat customers and referrals.

See for yourself, we now have two locations to serve you:

1034 N. Gilbert Rd, Suite 4
Gilbert, AZ 85234
(480) 398-3249

4110 N. Goldwater Blvd, Suite 100
Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Announcing Our Second Location!

We are proud to announce the expansion of Sell Us Your Gold - with our second location in Scottsdale, AZ.

As Valentine's Day quickly approaches, there is still a way to get that much needed cash. At Sell Us Your Gold, we will ensure that you receive maximum value for your Broken, Mismatched, or Unwanted jewelry, guaranteed.

When pricing out your jewelry items, be sure to get a clear understanding of what unit the buyer is pricing in. Many in the industry are creating diversions by saying that they are paying high prices for gold and silver, when in reality they are just quoting in Pennyweight (dwt) versus grams. Remember, there is 1.555 grams per pennyweight, therefore the price per unit of a dealer who works in pennyweight will obviously appear to be higher. At Sell Us Your Gold, we provide consistency and honesty with our pricing assessment. If there is an option that will yield our customer a greater payout, we are happy to offer up this advice. There is no smokescreen, fuzzy math or trickery here.

An example of this is testing "upward" on your jewelry items. Most jewelry should have a stamp as to what metal has been used. Whether it is 14k, 10k, 18k, or their respective corresponding percentages (585, 417, 750) we are able to identify the metal by the stamp. But in the case of broken jewelry, many buyers will assume that something without a stamp will be a lower karat, i.e. 10k. However at Sell Us Your Gold, we will test the item for 14k and 18k to ensure that you maximize your payout - just as the customer who thought she was bringing in a 14k chain, but received 18k money after our testing.

So this Valentine's Day, make it a point to visit our Gilbert location. Chances are you will receive great value for your unwanted items, and will have that extra cash to make Valentine's Day special.

Selling Your Gold For the 1st Time?

The most common thing we hear is that: "I've never done this before." Although many individuals have jewelry that they want to get rid of, they are reluctant to seek out a buyer for their items. Many reasons can be behind this, such as feeling nervous, ashamed, or scared that the buyer will try to take advantage of them - without giving proper value.

People are genuinely surprised at how seamless and quick the experience is at Sell Us Your Gold. First, we enjoy explaining the entire process of testing the items out. We do all testing in front of our customers, so you never will lose sight of your jewelry. Next, we explain the rub/acid test process and how that affects the payout that you will receive. Finally, we weigh everything in front of you, and give a no-hassle quote. The process is so quick and painless, that you can be in and out of our location in less than 10 minutes with CASH!

Recent quotes from our customers:
"You guys are so much nicer than the competition. Those other guys talk down to their customers"
"That was quick and easy. I should have come here long ago."
"I really appreciate how you test everything in front of us and explain it to me."

These are just a few of the things we have heard from our grateful customers. The gold and silver market are still holding strong, which presents a great opportunity to sell your broken, scrap or unwanted items. If you have any questions, feel free to stop by our office or give us a call. We look forward to seeing you.
