Cash4Gold Appears in Leading Dutch Publication

Cash4Gold was recently the focus of a large feature in the second-largest Dutch newspaper The Algemeen Dagblad.

The article on Cash4Gold was titled “Rapper Also Recruits in the Netherlands for Gold Melter Cash4Gold.” In a wide-ranging and expansive story, the journalist explored the company and its origins.

Much of the article centered on MC Hammer and his important role as celebrity endorser for the company. “I got involved with Cash4Gold by participating in their Super Bowl ad last year,” Hammer told the paper, adding that his interest in gold and the company led him to seek and acquire a long-term and deeper role within Cash4Gold. According to a translation of the article, “In Hammer Aronson found a golden spokesman.”

Hammer recalled how his fascination with gold began during his days as a youth hanging around the flamboyant baseball players in the Oakland Athletics’ clubhouse.

The Dutch article also focused upon the simplicity of Cash4Gold’s service offering and the great convenience it provides for customers who are looking to monetize old or unwanted jewelry but don’t want to run the risk of running into friends or neighbors selling their wares in a pawnshop or jewelry story. The reporter also emphasized that all customers have 12 days from the date on their check to contact Cash4Gold and have their items returned postage-paid and insured at no cost to them.

In addition to the Netherlands, Cash4Gold is operating in the United States, the UK, Spain, Germany and Canada.

Leading International Mail-In Gold Buyer Plans to Open in New Markets in 2010

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 20 / -- Cash4Gold (, the world's #1 gold buyer direct from consumers, recently closed the books on a successful 2009 by securing its spot as the number one name in the industry that the company created. Cash4Gold experienced massive growth and expansion during the past year and looks to continue that through 2010 and beyond.

Cash4Gold kicked off 2009 with a bang when the decision was made to advertise during the Super Bowl, the largest stage for advertising in U.S. television each year. The spot featuring three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer and the late television legend Ed McMahon received rave reviews from critics. The ad put Cash4Gold into the U.S. pop culture lexicon and vaulted the company toward international expansion.

In 2009, Cash4Gold expanded to new territories by opening for business in the UK, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain. Consumers in the new markets have shown interest in the ease and simplicity of Cash4Gold's service. Any customers who change their minds can have their items returned at no cost by contacting the company within 12 days of the date on the check, as stated by CEO Jeff Aronson. There is now no need for residents to travel to the local pawn shop or jewelry store, as they can mail in their gold from the comfort of their own homes.

"In 2009, Cash4Gold experienced tremendous growth in the United States and beyond," said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. "Following our successful Super Bowl spot we decided it was time to take our mail-in gold buying service to additional territories worldwide. Consumers in each of these markets showed a desire to use our service right off the bat, and we have seen great success. We are continuing with plans to launch in additional markets in 2010."

In addition to the Super Bowl spot and the company's international expansion, Cash4Gold made a number of charitable contributions during 2009. At the end of last year, company spokesman MC Hammer joined CEO Jeff Aronson to hand out toys to children in need during the holidays in South Florida. The company also helped launch a Feed The Children campaign in the UK called Breakfast2Live, among other various charitable initiatives.

So far this year the company has undertaken a series of steps to support those impacted by the devastating earthquake in Haiti, including collecting more than 570 pairs of shoes, matching dollar for dollar all employee donations to the Red Cross and Feed the Children and collecting canned goods, infant supplies and other food items
