The only way u get decent shipping deals on here is to set your shipping frequency to a weekly setting and win several auctions. It varies between $.25 and $1 per won item after the first item is won. As far as getting a good deal on smokes, that's on you. Gotta be persistent. I've got PLENTY of good deals on here. But there are a lot of idiot bidders out there that help pay for others good deals. Herfing

Do you remember when you had to pay shipping and worried about how long they’d take to get there?

I have found the best way to get good deals here is through volume.

I turn the volume all the way up on my computer/phone when i am bidding, and I get great deals that way.

Volume is the key.

This used to be my basic strategy but with the absence of “better” cigars and the enforcement of MAP when the “better” brands do appear, there is less and less reason for me to look, let alone bid these days.

No; CigarBid is not a good online store for good cigars at competitive prices and reasonable shipping. There are at least two online retail stores that sell at a consistently competitive price and, ship my cigars for very little or no shipping charge. These two stores ship via USPS and I get my cigar bundles in 2 - 3 days almost without fail. So, I tried CigarBid for my cigar purchase and it wasn't satisfactory for me. I called customer service and I was given the "....we often sell at below cost" nonsense.


I’ve really slowed down my cigar purchases the last year or so with an occasional spike when I run across a *really* good deal on favorites or htf stuff. However, I got them from other sites and could never imagine finding similar deals here. Too bad as this used to be my #1 online site....

I won a 5 pack of Lying Pony Faced Dog Soldiers (Maduro) Belicoso because I really liked the Palomino wrapper ones I aged for a while. Super nutty and very fruity in flavor.

I got them for a steal , only 15% over MSRP.

I live in Virginia Beach, and have mine shipped on Tuesday. I usually receive them 2 days later on Thursday, but have got them on Wednesday a couple of times. I always check the price on other sites before bidding on an item just to make sure I am getting a good deal if I win.

I've been smoking cigars for about 35 years. I've seen cigar brands come and go and prices primarily increase. I made my first "bid and buy" last Thursday on CigarBid. I got a $3 per cigar purchase on 15 cigars middle of the road cigars. The cost IS competitive with other online retailers; competitive. The sorry part of the buy is shipping. My cigars are "daily ship" and, to CigarBid good efforts, my cigars WERE shipped the very next day. The thing is, it cost me only $1 less in shipping cost from CigarBid. The shipping time via the only method provided by CigarBid is EIGHT days. Competitive online cigar retailers sell for prices competitive to CigarBid however, after buying the darn cigars, the competitors ship and I receive in 2 - 3 days coming from Burlington, North Carolina to my front door in Katy, Texas via USPS. I called CigarBid Customer Service and was told "that's just part of the deal of being able to buy cigars 'BELOW COST'...it's just the way it is, there's nothing we can do about it". Below cost? Am I to think CigarBid is GIVING CIGARS AWAY AT A LOSS and because of this loss, the cigars MUST be shipped via UPS SurePost (for a $1 less than USPS Priority as online competitors ship)? Not a good deal.

It is one of the "well, it happens automatically, the system does it and unfortunately there is nothing we can do" scenarios.



Sorry. I got into the liquor cabinet and went on a bender. Bought everything for 3 days and bid everything else up for weeks! I go to the airport to pick up this week's haul. Where's Jeeves when you really need him?

I've only noticed this on Padron, Ashton and Davidoff the most. Obviously our definitions of "good" may differ some but it can't be that far apart. There are still a lot of good deals to be had on here on good smokes. I will admit though, Fuente is usually not one of them.


Edit: left out Davidoff

This is NOT the place to buy Fuentes and Padrons............for those who do.....we thank you.
There ARE a handful of good brands that can be had for less than any other place........on occasion.
It’s also a good place to buy pipe baccy.

Cbid was numero uno years ago.........now?..........eh, just one of 5 or 6 places I buy from.

Yup. I don't know what it was like during the "golden age" of auction sites but for the first 3-ish years that I was here, you could score some good deals here and on other sites. My all-time best score / purchase was getting 5 AF BTL for $15.00! At $3.00 per cigar, I'm sure that'll never happen again!

not that I really care, but some might find it offensive that you used the first person subjective case pronoun "I" instead of the first person objective case pronoun "me". I'm sure you remember the rule of grammar...that objects in a prepositional phrase (in this case the preposition is "between") take the objective case pronoun.

I know, I've heard it a million times..."but it sounds classier to end with I instead of me", but class has nothing to do with it. The rules are the same for lower class as well.

Are you thinking of hanging around for a while? Cuz between you and me (see what I did there?) membership is waaaay down.

Well, another one bites the dust.

Seems like the average lifespan of a nOOb is <6 posts / 1 week.

Iffin’ this keeps up, our chances to get some of those nicer things exponentially diminish.... Brick wall

More than a few B/SOTL from this forum do / have met up and shared conversations over adult beverages.

Speaking about the ones I’ve met, there are some *really* good people here.

Ultimately, I hope you stick around and share some of your knowledge and insights, you seem to have thicker skin than some who have quickly come and gone.

I actually liked a couple of his (now deleted) answers to the mini questionnaire, but he was a bit too sensitive for this forum and should have registered with another screen name. Deleting and editing posts is another thing that annoys many online forum members.
