Lost 29
WINNING 19
10???? OUTBID
Won ONLY 2
PADILLA FUMAS BOX 20 & LIGHTER? OR CUTTERS?

W.T.F.???

Still bidding...ON QUICKIES...

I MAY have to do FreeFall on Wednesday and break my attempt at winning any freakin' bid the regular way we always did from 2005 -2015 ( when all this non winning any bid at all stared EN MASSE...2015 WAS THE START OF THE MILLENNIALS BIDDING CURSE)

Made it a point as to not do
"FreeFall" which I pretty much exclusively have done for the last 3-4 yrs because it's the only way to get a decent price on here anymore...

Too many MILLIONAIRE MILLENNIALS bidding stuff up and WAY TOO MANY SNIPERS ...
SNIPING AWAY IN THE LAST 15 MINUTES ON EVERY LOT...

BUNCH OF B.S.

69 bids

12 won

57 L.O.S.T.

I FINALLY figured it out on how to win bids on here in the
2015 - to present millionaire millennials bidding scourge ERA

( HOW YOU ASK? NO WAY IM TELLING ANYONE)

AND MY GO TO FREEFALL STRATEGY has really changed , because they start at "retail MSRP" NOW ( unlike 1-2 yrs ago when they started at a considerable discount and went really low) and fall extremely slowly...

Thanks RAMMIE but my patience wears thin these days at something /FreeFall/that takes twice the time it used to only
1-2 yrs ago.....and everyone was home in a pandemic back then doing nothing...

When you have a moderator log in, the lowest free fall price is all that shows and you get an employee discount.

It's getting really tough to get a deal on CBID. The wackos have gone crazy and bid high on everything. Freefall has been made bargain proof and a real wast of time.

Hey Jones, how many times do you have to be told to bid higher than the other guys if you wanna win ?

I did pretty decent after I figured out my new strategy...
I'll list what I won and how much once I receive it ?
Next Monday ?
Or maybe this Friday? Saturday?

No butane in order so it might just go regular "whatever" they use nowadays? I won 4? Lighters but they ship empty and can't SPLODE!!!, 🔥💥

I really did do o.k. ...
My guess? At least 40-50% off retail at the mothership on just about everything...which is very hard to do lately...

I am satisfied...

But the new strategy took time to figure out...

I am not like that brainiac VEGAN MEDITTERIANIAN KETO DIET NEW JERSEY WONDER BOY WHO WAS BANNED FROM BIDDING ON C-BID and now lives like grizzley Adams in the mountains of north Carolina...just joking dude!!!dpnewellll
Bwuhahahaha!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣👍👍👍

I got a couple of killer deals early this month and I can't figure out exactly how it happened. The last few days have been crazy with little or no wins. Sniping is not a choice when the bids are too high, but the snipers are plentiful. I guess I'll wait for a better time before I jump in again.

Thats about the time I won my LHC fivers for a buck.
Pretty sure there was a glitch of sorts in my case.

I went crazy on Cuban SAMMICH bundles and FUMAS...
Plus about 5? Five and ten packs of medium grade good stuff and lighters& cutters...

I paid 50-65% less than mothership prices on all the 20 bundles of SAMMICH /FUMAS

I did okay on La Herencia Cubana CORE Toro. 11/ 5 pack and won 4 packs, so 44 for a box (CI price is 180/box). Great cigar, by the way.

Aging Room has been eluding me.

Last I grabbed was 2 boxes of lonsdale Herrera esteli on free fall for just about 4.50$ per. I love that cigar

Box of robusto Jamie Garcia’s for 81$ for 20 smokes. I thought they were good deals for pretty real good cigars

Prior to that I scored a 10 pack of masterblend 3 for cheap. Still the cheapest place to buy those it was a regular bid for 3-4$ per

I spoke too soon. I got 3 fivers of Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Maestro @ 27 each tonight. That translates to 108 a box and last week the box went for 127 - my high bid was 108, so I hit it tonight, albeit only 15 for 81.

Another excellent cigar.
