Caught mention of gold prices in the chatbox and it reminded me about this offer (referral link)

It is a no deposit, no strings attached ounce of pure silver (value at time of writing about £26), which can be sold as soon as you open the account if you so wish, and the money withdrawn to your bank account.

They seem a pretty decent place to invest in precious metals anyway, as there are no fees or taxes applicable (just a small commission on trades), yet you still hold ownership of the physical bars of shiny stuff.

I have used my referral link above, I'd get 25% of any commission generated by your acount if you join through it, which I'd be very grateful if you used when joining if ya do.
