I recently moved to Texas (near Houston) and I am having trouble finding a good store to purchase bullions from. There are hundreds of "We buy Gold and Silver" stores, but the only one that I have found willing to sell silver charges a $3.50 premium above the spot price. After adding the 8.25% state sales tax (yikes!) ASEs cost $35 when spot is $28.
No good.
My choices seem to be either purchase $1000+ of silver at a time (in texas $1000+ pm purchases have no tax), go online, or pay unfortunate premiums.
Can anybody suggest online retailers with better prices than $7 over spot? Know of any good Houston retailers, locals? ;)
