APMEX Complaints:

APMEX has 48 Complaints reported to the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

The company has higher than average complaints from current or previous customers online. One thing to consider, however, is they have been in business longer than most precious metal dealers so it would be expected to see a higher review/complaint ratio. Due diligence is recommended.

Promotions & Advertising:

APMEX has published a few marketing videos explaining the basics on precious metal IRAs as well as some of their featured products for purchase. They also offer potential clients a free precious metals IRA guide available on their company website.

APMEX Review Score:

Our APMEX review concludes that APMEX has a higher risk reputation online from previous customers but seems to resolve any complaints. However, we recommend your perform your own due diligence and contact them directly in order to decide for yourself.
