No doubt that theres nice gold in Felixs' bags. I've bought several over the last few years. If you don't mind spending $100 to get $50 worth of gold you'll like it. Thats typical. This stuff is designed for people who really are clueless about the values or don't care.I do this for fun, but bottomline, its really a poor value. These folks are mining the miners. Read the reviews, theres sellers out there that offer better concentrates consistently. Felix Paydirt Co. is the number 1 marketer, bar none. My hat is off to them for that. They could sell air conditioners to the eskimos in the winter. Because of their unique product, and their marketing, these guys make a killing, and where we do this for fun, its very expensive and the return is very poor. There are people/businesses out there that sell an honest bag of concentrates for a fair price. But this isn't one of them.

I am thinking of ordering some paydirt from Felix's for my husband for Christmas...very reluctantly. I realize this is not at all a way to make money, but more of a fun experience for him. He and my daughter can't miss a single episode of 'Goldrush', and I know they would love to try this but He would be terribly disappointed if he found nothing at all. (and I will be in trouble) after reading the reviews I am afraid I'll be setting him up for disappointment. What companies sell similar products with good reputation to find at least 'something' ?

Sorry this post will be to late to help with Christmas, but if you want to surprise your husband and daughter with a good gold panning experience, buy some flakes/nuggets on ebay, say about 2 grams (cost you about $100 - 120), mix that with a little gravel and some dirt and they will have a rewarding, enjoyable winning experience. As for Felix Paydirt, my experience with those folks was for every $100 spent on their "paydirt" you may get back $30 -40 back in gold. I know 1 fella on this board talks about the big nugget he got, well thats from their big promotion in November for the "Jackpot" bags, kind of like winning the lottery, but that is the exception to the normal bags they sell throughout the year, my opinion, a big rip off, send me $100 and I'll send you $30 in gold all year long, it's good for Felix, horrible for the buyer.

WoW, 11 bags, that cost you a small fortune at $360 per bag. They suck you in dangling the chance of getting a "big nugget", but the typical experience is you spend $360 plus another $20 for shipping for a total of $380 spent and wind up with maybe $150 in gold, great for Felix, major rip-off for the consumer. Felix has to make up his $$ on the masses to make up for "giving away" those big nuggets, so you have some lucky winners and everyone else, unfortunately people like you that bought 11 bags, line Felix's pockets with a great marketing scam enticing you with the possibility of getting that big nugget!! So when you hear that Felix or anyone is going to give away some big nuggets, there's a catch, somebody has to pay for that giveaway and that somebody is you!!! Felix Gourmet Gold = Rip Off

Make no mistake, Felix Paydirt salts their bags. Unfortunately greed does not allow them to give but a select few a reasonable deal. A very, very, small percentage of people may end up with a reasonable amount of gold. Whatever you spend, you will be lucky to get 1/3 to 1/2 of that in gold. Felix must actually get around $3000 to $4000 an ounce for his gold. Pretty good. I expect that they probably buy most of it anyway. These guys make a killing due to their marketing. Anyone can buy raw gold just like these guys. Why buy their gold that they've diluted by 1/2 to 3/4 with dirt when you can buy your own and not get ripped off?? The odds of you getting a "nice surprise, nice gold from Felix Paydirt, are the same as winning the lottery - it ain't gonna happen. Sorry, but its just not going to happen. And their claim that "Felix is the #1 Paydirt" is all self proclaimed.

I've had some folks say that you are paying for the "experience" of panning out the gold that you receive, I can understand that, however, wouldn't you rather spend $100.00 on some flakes/pickers and throw in some dirt/gravel and have the same "experience" as paying Felix to salt you about $30.00 in gold and charge you $100.00??? Just makes no sense to this old timer. Felix is in the business to make money, he cannot give you dollar for dollar in gold for what you pay, he would go out of business, but what people pay to get his "gourmet gold" should be a crime. I see it as legal thievery, he knows he's sending you 30-40 cents on the dollar in gold, and thats OK??? Live & learn people, save your $$ and remember your pot o gold is NOT in a bag from Felix.

It is a business. Why would they be in business if it were not for profit? Why would they do all the work and then send you all the gold for face value? Get real.

I stated that they could not give you dollar for dollar in gold, that they would go out of business. They do all the work?? salting bags at 30 cents on the dollar is work, if so, I would be happy to "work" sending you 30 cents on the dollar for my "work". Been mining for 40 years, son that ain't work, thats love for what you're doing and picking peoples pockets with "salted gold" is most definitely not work, it is a business to make money for sure, a reasonable profit is expected, but this is just playing on poor folks who hope there going to get a reasonable return for their money, which ain't gonna happen. Get real ??? Wake up and smell the coffee son, even us old timers got to much horse sense for these "business people".

Theres some pretty incredible boneheads out there. Any one that thinks that Felix is doing them any favors is beyond clueless. Why anyone would think that the "experience" of finding gold is worth the fees he charges is beyond comprehension. If you think this is normal business, normal and acceptable profit margins, you have zero business sense.I know this is hobby material, we do this for fun, but man, if you think paying $200 for $100 worth of gold, or $2000 for $1000 worth of gold(and I'm being generous with these figures) is OK, you've literally got money to burn. Sorry but Felixes gold is not twice as valuable as any other gold out there, which, if you look at all you will find raw gold for purchase at spot prices. Its really not that hard. They honestly could put a little more gold in their bags and make it almost a legitamate business, but greed steers these guys, period.

I have mineral interests in the Big Belt mountains in Montana. I work hard for my gold, but I always find it. It sure as hell beats paying some greedy money monger the equivalant of $4000 an oz., which so many people out there seem willing to do. Since Felix more than likely buys most of his gold at $1200 to $1500 an oz. and sells it for around $4000 an oz., we could all do the same thing. Like I say, hes mining the miners. Not much real mining going on here. If you belong to the GPAA you can read his drama queen stories about mining and fighting off claim jumpers! With guns drawn! OH MY!!
I don't know how anyone can justify his prices, unfortunately there are a lot of people out there that either don't have a clue, or don't care, and will continue to be screwed by Felix Paydirt.

Every now and than, as in several complaints here, Felix, after getting his nose rubbed in it long enough, contacts some of the customers hes screwed, and wants to make it right - at least try to redeem himself. These guys roll over, and after telling everyone what a crook he is, suddenly they pull a complete about face and now have nothing but good to say about Felix. They forget about the screwing they took when he dangles another bag(specially salted with the good stuff) in their face.Too bad he doesn't make it right with the other 98% of his customers. These 2 guys will learn again. Ain't education wonderful?
Screw me once, shame on you, ...screw me twice shame on me...Save your money.

Rip off

I must say, I ordered three two pound bags for a chance to win a large nugget. That was 900.00. I were ghee all gold from three bags. Weight was three and a half grams. At today’s spot price that was only 161.00 worth of gold. That means Felix paydirt made over 700.00 out of the nine. Complete and total waste of money. I live in North Carolina and have mined over half pound of gold in Western North Carolina. Some days with a four inch mini Keene dredge have gotten half ounce in a day. That’s 15 grams. You re probably much better off getting a small section dredge and sucking it out of the creeks that spending money on Felix paydirt. I don’t care if Felix paydirt offers a nugget prize of a 1/4 pound. I ll NEVER spend money on them again. Nope not ever.
