Some MSB Updates – Sign Up With Silver

A few things for MSB and perspective MSB Members.

1. had been doing 7% off all purchases.  The code expired at the end of the year and they now have a new and better deal for the MSB.  There are now two codes one for shelving and that gets you 10% off and the other code for Thrive Food Items which gets your 5% off.   If you want to order shelving and food in one order it will be best to call the order in and give both codes to the customer service rep that takes your order because the online system will only let you use one code.

2.  Backwoods Home’s code expired, I do have an email in to Dave Duffy to get it renewed.  I expect that they will remain a supporter and renew the offer or come up with a new one.

3.  There was also an issue with the ordering link for Common Sense Prep for 15% off all Paladin Press DVDs and Books, the issue is now corrected.

Lastly I have been taking silver for MSB for quite a while but I have now made the silver option easier to understand and have standardized it.    Those wanting to pay with silver can now use the new order form which has two options for paying with silver.  I am now taking either of the following for each year of MSB you want to order.

1.  One Ounce of any .999 pure silver.  These can be bullion rounds, American Eagles, AOCS silver rounds, bars, you name it.  As long as it is pure silver it will be accepted at one ounce per year.  You can order one year at a time or prepay several at any quantity you want to.


2.  $1.50 Cents of pre 64 US Silver coin, I will take dimes, quarters, half dollars or silver dollars for this.  This is just over one ounce of silver melt value.

I decided to go to one ounce flat on silver because silver is at an all time high, so while I am taking AOCS coins as always I am not putting a premium on them.  In any event this is a significant discount.    With silver right at 30 dollars an ounce this is effectively a 20 dollar discount on MSB for paying in silver.

  1. Jack. I see your logic but is it wise to accept one oz of silver for a year membership? I was and am happy to mail you $50 a year to keep you able to keep doing what you’re doing. I think I will continue doing so and don’t really need the great deal of only sending one ounce.

    @Cryptozoic, mailing silver can be a pain in the ass, it definitely takes more than a single stamp. I also figure in another year it is likely that the 30 dollars in silver will be worth about 40 dollars and the 50 dollars of US Reserve Notes will be worth about 40 dollars.

    I used to take 2 ounces of silver that is now 60 dollars, you would be paying a premium to send silver and fractional rounds are expensive. So this is just the most fair way for me to be with everyone.

    The options are all there for each person to do as they please. 95% of all members use and will probably continue to use Paypal.

    The silver transactions are also totally between me and the buyer with zero visibility by anyone other than the two of us, that also offers some advantages.

    Oh and Cryptozoic, thank you so much for your continued support, it is indeed the members that pay the bills and keep me on the air. There is no other way TSP could be my full time endeavor. Thank you again.

  4. Jack,
    Thanks for doing the house keeping for the MSB discounts.

  5. Jack. Sound thinking. I have not seen info on your new physical mailing address relative to moving to your former BOL, now your home. I assume you have obtained a POB? What is that? I would like to prepay a few years of MSB in silver. Is that acceptable and to where do I mail it?

    Right now and for at lest a month the current address is fine. No I don’t have a PO Box in ARK yet, just use the form and at any point the address on the form is the address to use.
