Leading Mail-In Gold Buyer Enjoying Recent Pop Culture Spotlight
Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 30, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from consumers, emerged onto the U.S. pop culture radar in 2009 with its Super Bowl spot featuring hip-hop icon MC Hammer and the late, great TV legend Ed McMahon. As a sign of the brand’s increasing relevance and popularity, on Sunday night, the company was referenced during the 2009 Soul Train Awards telecast on BET.
Cash4Gold celebrity endorser and three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer was briefly interviewed during the broadcast by the Soul Train Awards co-hosts Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. As part of their on-air comedic banter, the co-hosts approached MC Hammer at his seat to congratulate him on the 2009 success of Cash4Gold. Terrence Howard then opened his jacket showing a number of gold necklaces and asked Hammer what he thought. MC Hammer chuckled and said, “We’re trying to melt that gold, baby!”
“It is gratifying to see the Cash4Gold brand regularly mentioned on national television and in top-tier magazines,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “We have worked hard to provide our customers with a secure, convenient and top-notch experience.

The company has enjoyed the recent spotlight on such pop culture barometers as “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Colbert Report,” “The Soup,” ESPN The Magazine and “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” included a Cash4Gold envelope in their original music video, “Still a Boss.” Also, Stephen Colbert pointed to the trend of people monetizing their unused jewelry by using Cash4Gold’s mail-in service.
In ESPN The Magazine’s “Ask a Fourth-Grader” Pittsburgh article, a class of fourth graders were asked what they would do if they had the Stanley Cup for a day. One child responded that he would send it in to Cash4Gold.

For Immediate Release
CASH4GOLD COOKS UP EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION AT THANKSGIVING
Leading Gold Buyer Provides Two Tons of Free Birds for Turkey Day
Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 25, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.cash4gold.com), the world’s #1 buyer of precious metals from consumers, is not only dedicated to satisfying its customers, but also making sure its employees are taken care of and ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. This week, as each employee left Cash4Gold headquarters, they were given a turkey by company CEO Jeff Aronson and President Howard Mofshin to ensure that they were prepared for Thursday’s holiday.
Cash4Gold employs more than 300 people at its Pompano Beach, Fla. headquarters and yesterday each person left the building with a 12-14 pound Thanksgiving turkey. This adds up to around 4,000 pounds of free turkey for Cash4Gold’s staff. The employees were notified of the reward last week by Cash4Gold Co-Founders CEO Jeff Aronson and President Howard Mofshin, to ensure they didn’t buy them over the weekend. This has become an annual tradition at Cash4Gold since the company launched in 2007.
“Our employees work extremely hard all year and it’s important for us to make an extra effort around the holidays to ensure they thoroughly enjoy the season,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “We appreciate the dedication displayed every day at our headquarters and we wanted to reward everyone leading up to Thanksgiving.”
The Cash4Gold staff has grown rapidly in 2009 with the company launching its mail-in gold buying service in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain. Keeping employees well-fed is not new to Cash4Gold; each day, Cash4Gold provides a catered lunch from a local restaurant to its 300-plus employees.
Anyone interested in using Cash4Gold’s mail-in gold buying service is encouraged to connect with the company on Twitter and Facebook. More information about Cash4Gold can be found on the official Cash4Gold blog and U.S. residents who would like to sell gold are invited to call 1-877-GOLD-590.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CASH4GOLD ESTIMATES MELT VALUE FOR MLS CUP AT $10,730
Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 23, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from consumers, congratulates the 2009 MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake on the title they captured Sunday. Real Salt Lake won the most coveted trophy in U.S. professional soccer at Qwest Field in Seattle after a hard-fought match that went into overtime before ultimately being settled on penalty kicks.
The champions of Major League Soccer hoisted the sterling silver Philip F. Anschutz Trophy, which weighs 43 pounds and stands 24 inches tall. Cash4Gold estimates that the trophy’s melt value is around $10,730.
The virtual appraisal from Cash4Gold, based upon the trophy’s reported weight and makeup, refers to the melt value, which is the value of the actual precious metals content included in an item. This does not account for the item’s craftsmanship or its artistic, historic, or sentimental value. By comparison, the Stanley Cup was estimated earlier this year to contain $7,500 worth of precious metals.
“Everyone at Cash4Gold congratulates Real Salt Lake on their 2009 title,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “At Cash4Gold we always provide a completely free evaluation to all our customers, but certainly don’t encourage people to send items such as these trophies, whose great sentimental and historical value probably outweigh the value of the precious metal they contain.”
Soccer has huge popularity worldwide and in 2009, Cash4Gold has undergone a widespread global expansion due to its success in the U.S. The company has launched its mail-in gold buying service in Canada, the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Spain.
Cash4Gold is the world’s #1 buyer of precious metals including gold, silver and platinum from the general public. Hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers have received millions of dollars from Cash4Gold since inception. For more information, connect with Cash4Gold on Facebook and Twitter.

Cash4Gold.Com Sponsors Aaron Riley Versus Ross Pearson in Highly Anticipated Fight and Sees Growing Excitement in Britain Around Online Gold-Buying Services and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
LONDON, November 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Cash4Gold.com (http://www.cash4gold.com/), the world's #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, is sponsoring veteran MMA talent Aaron Riley in a highly anticipated fight in Manchester at the MEN Arena on 14 November. Riley, who competes in the lightweight division and boasts a record of 28-11-1 will face off against Sunderland native Ross Pearson, who was the season nine winner of reality TV show "The Ultimate Fighter."
Cash4Gold sponsors a variety of the world's most elite MMA stars, and the company has a long tradition of other sports sponsorships. The company also backs an MMA-related charitable organisation called the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, which was established by U.S. Army veteran and Hall of Famer Randy Couture to honor and raise money for soldiers wounded in action.
Jeff Aronson, CEO and Co-Founder of Cash4Gold.com, said: "Aaron Riley is a tough and talented fighter and Cash4Gold is proud to be in his corner. Cash4Gold is glad to be open for business in the United Kingdom and we have been thrilled so far with the outpouring of interest in our secure, easy, discreet and 100 percent satisfaction-guaranteed service that has redefined how people sell gold."
Like the service pioneered by Cash4Gold.com that enables customers to send items through the post, MMA is also generating tremendous excitement in the UK, becoming more mainstream and exploding in popularity. Cash4Gold sees its MMA sponsorships as an opportunity to further become part of British pop culture.

We were surprised and delighted to discover ourselves in an entertaining and highly unusual article in this month’s issue of ESPN The Magazine. In the story, fourth graders from an elementary school in Pittsburgh answer all kinds of sports-related questions.
In response to the question of what he would do with the Stanley Cup if he had it for a day, one young scholar by the name of JJ said: “I’d sell it to Cash4Gold.”
JJ may have just been giving a silly answer. Maybe he was displaying a keen business sense and expressing a desire to capitalize financially on a unique situation. Perhaps he knew that Cash4Gold estimated the Stanley Cup’s melt value at around $7,500 earlier this year.
The lesson that we draw from this is that even fourth graders know that Cash4Gold offers a quick, easy, secure and 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed service.
However, we must remind the public that all Cash4Gold customers must be age 21 or older and the lawful owners of the goods with absolute authority to sell the goods that are the subject of their transaction with Cash4Gold.

Cash4Gold today estimated the melt value of the championship hardware, which consists of 30 pounds of sterling silver and 30 gold-plated flags, at around $7,750. Melt value refers to the actual value of the precious metal contained in an object, and does not account for sentimental, historic or artistic value.
Clearly, the World Series trophy is not something that would be sent in to Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility to be melted down. However, the company has offered to do a free appraisal of the hardware.

Randomly chosen from among those who suggest the British celebrity that Cash4Gold ends up selecting will be one grand prize winner, who will be treated to tea with Hammer and the UK celebrity.
The contest is advertised on Cash4Gold’s UK website with a special message from three-time Grammy Award-Winner MC Hammer.
To see the five best and five worst suggestions so far, read the full text of the release below:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Peter Andre and Katie Price among favourites to star in new Cash4Gold ad
3/11/09 – London, England
What do Simon Cowell, Goldie and Katie Price have in common? They are just some of the celebs that have been suggested by the UK public to star in a future Cash4Gold television ad. Since the company launched its competition in September, thousands have voted for who they would like to star alongside MC Hammer and for a chance to win afternoon tea with the rapper and UK celeb.
Katie Price’s ex-husband Peter Andre and former TV presenter Jimmy Saville are also popular choices. Some of the worst suggestions for a UK celeb include Americans Mr. T, Jennifer Aniston, Madonna and Elvis Presley, whose death in 1977 makes him an extremely unlikely candidate for the job. Perhaps just slightly less likely than “The King” to appear is The Queen, much as we would love to see her next to MC Hammer in all her bling.
“We have seen a great response from the British public”, said Jeff Aronson, CEO and Founder of Cash4Gold. “Celebrity culture is as big here as it is in the US and people love the idea of seeing their chosen celeb star in our next ad.”
Suggestions can be submitted until the 15th November at http://uk.cash4gold.com/
