These terms and conditions are subject to change without prior notice. Any new changes will be available on the website (services.goldredemption.com) and click on terms & conditions, and will go in effect as soon as they are posted online. The items that You send to Us under the Program are referred to herein collectively and individually as "Items."

To send us an Item for analysis, You should print a mailing label available by following the directions on our website and mail your Item to Us as indicated on our website using a Label. If your package includes the Label, We will insure the package and its contents as provided below, and You can obtain additional insurance at your expense. Within 3 business days after We receive your package containing the Item You want Us to analyze, We will notify You by email (1) of our assessed value of the Item; and (2) whether and at what price We offer to purchase the Item from You. Our notice pursuant to the preceding sentence is the "Offer", and the date we send the Offer is the "Offer Date". If We do not offer to purchase any Item You submit, We will at our expense return your Item within 3 business days after receipt of your package.
If You accept the Offer, We will mail to You at the address You provide a check for the amount of the Offer.
