The Gold Standard: The BBB Sets the Bar High
In the early days of this country’s development, every U.S. dollar in circulation was backed by a dollar’s worth of gold. You could go to a bank and receive your gold by turning in your dollars. That gold backing is what made the flimsy paper dollar something that could be exchanged for goods and services.
This gave rise to the term “gold standard.” Today, a business is said to be the gold standard in its area of expertise if it is the one against which all others are measured.
That’s where the Better Business Bureau (BBB) comes in to play.
For over a century, the BBB has been the go-to watchdog in the business community. They’re the ones you call when your complaint is ignored and your injustice isn’t corrected. Their name is even used as a threat. “I’m going to report you to the Better Business Bureau” has been uttered literally millions of times.
Getting a Good Grade With the BBB
The BBB reviews more than 4 million businesses each year and deals with well over a million complaints. Super-high grades aren’t just handed out to the highest achiever; only 23% of businesses earn that coveted A+ rating.
The BBB consider 16 elements for their ratings, including complaint volume and resolution. Then it measures performance against eight standards of trust, including such things as advertising honestly, telling the truth, honoring promises, and embodying integrity. Thus, the hard-earned A+ really means something.
Wouldn’t you be thrilled if your child brought home a report card with an A+ on it? That’s quite an accomplishment, especially when you consider a mark like that isn’t handed out like the government hands out money. It’s earned over time through diligence, effort, integrity and a consistent commitment to excellence.
And that’s exactly why Gold Stash has earned the highest rating from the BBB. There are only a few gold buyers on a national level that have maintained the A+ rating, and of those, only Gold Stash is recommended by Dave.
As of September 2012, the BBB had received only five complaints about Gold Stash over a three-year period and only one complaint in the last 12 months. The company received praise from the BBB for its response and resolution of all five of those complaints, noting that the handling of those matters actually served to raise Gold Stash’s rating.
