These reviews are based on our personal experiences with the individual cash for gold companies and our rating reflects our feelings regarding our transactions with them. Your experience with the gold refiner/dealer may fare better or worse. But we always try to give the most accurate representation of what you are likely to find.
It is always a good idea to do your own research and find the company that works for you. We do these reviews because it is important for anyone looking to sell their gold to understand that very few online gold buyers will actually give you what your gold is worth. You would be surprised how many cash for gold businesses payout less than half the current price of gold. And not everyone has the time to properly look through and research the hundreds of gold buyers that are out there today. We hope these reviews will give you an idea of what to expect and will help you to make a wise decision.
Turn Around Time:
Refinity.com is another cash for gold site that doesn’t list much information on their website. They are a Richmond, Virginia based business but other than that you can’t find out much more about them. They have no Better Business Bureau accreditation which all legitimate refiners have. Also they don’t have their payout listed anywhere on their site. They have a “Double Cash Back Guarantee” but that is only if you find a better price at the same rates they offer (i.e. really low rates).
We sent them a collection of a few 12-14k pieces of jewelry worth about $340. It took 4 days to get word back from them and when we finally did we were outraged. The check was for $74.22. I don’t think we need to say much more about them. I would strongly encourage anyone still looking into them to think carefully about it and take the time to check out a few of our other reviews first. If you can’t take the time to do that then at least consider Empire Gold Buyers who has some of the highest payouts of any gold refiner.
