Y'all must have not purchased the membership. My order processed Tuesday, and was shipped today. We'll see if everything comes as planned.

Took a look at the P&C site for the first time. Deals not as good, but "Joe" sure looks a lot more distinguished!

Order shipped on Wednesday, and arrived today. Everything was accounted for. Seems like they are back to normal to me.

Spoke too soon about no problems. Ordered a few things from the mothership. Got all but a $20 sampler. Instead, I was sent a $150 box of cigars that isn't even in the inventory, this side or that side. Braved the 30min wait for a rep, and. Told her what happened. She said they'd send the sampler, and a label by email so as to return the box. Thus far, no label, no sampler. Hmm....

Wait, you called to tell them that they sent you a $150 box rather than your $20 sampler? You sir are a Saint

I see today that cigarbid finally refunded $40 for a February order I never got.

They haven't refunded the shipping cost, well, which was only about $7, even though they sent it via the wrong carrier and it never made it past California before it was sent back to PA.

S&H may be caught up, but Cigar Bid is FAR from being back to normal. Still ONLY offer a few dozen NEW 5-Packs a day being posted! Used to be OVER 100 every day except Saturdays, which no new 5-Pack, Box, or Singles auctions start.

I mean 22 5-Packs is SO PITIFUL! Should be about 120
http://www.cigarbid.com/...y/5-Packs/StartingToday

and only 168 Quickes as opposed to over 300 EVERY DAY! before their DOWNGRADE!
http://www.cigarbid.com/Category/Quick-ies/

and only 177 Singles available. Before their Downgrade they always had over 400 up for bid
http://www.cigarbid.com/Category/Singles/

and even boxes are down by 30 for 40 per day. NEVER posted less then 110 per day prior to the downgrade.

who gives a **** about shipping when their ain't nothing worth bidding on at a decent price.


It's a marketing ploy to get us desperate sheep to bid more for fewer lots. Simple.

Exactly what I have been saying on previous posts. It appears Cbid has taken a page out of the oil companies' playbook. Suddenly the refinery "goes down for maintenance" which "creates shortages in supply", and the pump prices go up and stay up. Sound familiar? Not exactly Capitalism at its finest.

Take a peek at the latest cbid catalog....seems prices went up 30% overnight.
Fortunately we have other choices.

Jcdawg23, no, I'm no saint. The box ain't my brand or my size, and I'd really rather have that Punch sampler. I just figured they'd want this box of RyJ back. The lady I spoke with said yes, they want the box back, but I'm starting to wonder if they really do.

Usually my order is shipped on Weds. and I get by USPS on Sat. I got a confirmation of the order Weds. as usual but so far absolutely no response on shipment and was not debited from my checking. I've sent a couple of emails but no response. What the hell is going on?

Not a bad deal by any means, but not exactly free fall

Isn't is ironic that Cbid and CI (I know two entirely different companies, wink, wink) still can't seem to get their shipping sh*t together, and yet the email specials keep on coming. They are unable to deliver what has already been ordered and PAID FOR in a timely manner, yet they are soliciting more business. This is looking less and less like a software upgrade snafu and more and more like a new business model. Prices way up, availability and customer service way down. Could this be the new normal?
