As I wrote about in my previous post Presidential Commemorative Coins – Are
They Worth Much?, the 2020 free Donald Trump Coin is in fact real, and they’ve been making waves ever since it was announced that these limited edition coins were available and free to the public.
They’re calling the 2020 election “the most savage in American history,” and while I hope people get along no matter who ends up winning, you have to admire the dedication of the Trump campaign.
They want to get these coins out to as many MAGA people as possible, and
whether you’re a fan of Trump or not you have to admit it’s great news for the
coin collecting community.
What’s The Catch?
This may seem too good to be true, but the first-issue batch of 2020 gold-plated Donald Trump coins are 100% free — anybody who’d like to snag one need only pay the shipping cost this time around to reserve their coin.
So, how is the company able to offer these gold and silver-plated collector’s items at practically no cost, you may be wondering? The free Donald Trump coins are not the biggest money maker for this company (needless to say), that’s how.
The upsell is what they’re actually aiming for when they get people to click on these websites and claim their free coin.
That’s not to say that these free Trump Coins are a scam; not by a longshot. The coins are totally legit. But there’s a simple trick to navigating the checkout page that any buyer should know.
How To Get Your Free Donald Trump Coin — No Strings Attached
The key to the free Donald Trump Coin offers and making sure you don’t pay anything other than shipping when you get your coin is to be aware of the “upsell” process.
Upsell in sales terms means any item, either online or in a store, that the company attempts to get you to add to your order at the last minute (thankfully you won’t have any screaming kids to worry about when you get your coin).
The company manages to “get you” on the upsell whenever you buy some candy at the hardware store, or any of the items available on the Free Trump Coin website.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the website yet, it may look too good
to be true, or like it may be a scam to the untrained eye.
But this 2020 Trump coin really is free, as long as you know what to do when
you click on the “Reserve Your Coin” button on the site.
After clicking the button, you will immediately open a new window with four new options (tricky, I know).
In this case you will be given multiple options for adding extra coins to your order.
You don’t want that.
That’s how they get you!
These coins go well in any presidential or other US coin collection, whether
you’re a fan of the Trump campaign or not.
I’m a Ronald Reagan fan myself, but the Trump coin is still a lot nicer than I expected.
It’s gold and silver-plated and looks really close to the presidential dollar coins the US Mint began producing back in 2007. I don’t know how they did it for free, but it’s worth checking out!
Pro Tip: Get Your Free Trump Coin, and Get Out!
If you don’t have have a whole lot of time or just want to get your free coin, the first option on the “upsell” menu is the best option.
This is the best deal by far because the other options are cleverly masked. If you don’t pay attention, you may end up paying way too much.
Option two on the “upsell” is a clever marketing trick if I’ve ever seen one.
The company wants you to think the price is similar to the first option, but it’s actually “per coin” not a single shipping price.
Your mission here, should you choose to accept it, is to get your free coin and to get out as soon as you can (you’ll thank me later).
As I said earlier, these free Trump coins are as legit as they come, and a great
deal considering you don’t have to pay anything and they could grow in value as
time goes on.
To get your coin, save yourself a headache and click option number one, once
the second menu comes up.
You will then be taken to another menu with your coin and all the pricing details
right there for you.
You can even pay your shipping for the free Trump coin through Paypal — it doesn’t get any simpler than that!
When you’re finally ready to get your coin, scroll past the MAGA hats, bumper
stickers and all that junk.
Just click on the “Pay Now” option while avoiding all the expensive bells and whistles. From there, you’re good to go.
These coins really are the genuine article, and I really hope you get a chance to
check them out before they’re all gone.
Even if you’re not a Trump fan it’s hard to pass these coins up as a collector.
‘Til next time,
