Shipping

Hey All. I was talking to a co worker and we got into the conversation of having our cigars shipped. He totally disagreed with me about next day air shipping. He thought that I was wrong of going with the ups ground shipping. I told him if I was to order partigus 150 $1000 for 25 cigars then yeah I would do next day air. I can't justify spending the extra bucks on shipping, The way I look at it if I was to pay the next day air charges I could go down town and buy locally and have them same day. Whats your 2 cents?

    Yeah, I usually go for the cheapest shipping. It's only when I absolutely NEED something as quick as possible do I choose a different shipping option. Besides, when I order from CCom, they are in PA and I am in NJ and I usually get my stuff within two days, sometimes one day.

    I have a box of the Partagas 150 but I did not pay $1000 for them.

    USPS priority mail. cross country in 2-3 days.

    if all smokes are in a zipper bag then there should be no problems for up to 7 days.

    I used to do the 2nd-day shipping for bigger orders, but eventually noticed that the standard shipping -- and we're talking UPS here -- pretty much always gets here in 3 days, anyway. So now I don't bother.

    for me, standard shipping usually gets here on the 2nd day anyway :)

    Here in California, shipping from CCOM takes a little longer since it's going across the country.

    But I usually still opt for the standard shipping. Why spend the extra dough on shipping when you could spend it on more cigars?!

    Especially true of ccom, they ship with humi-paks.

    I always use the cheapest ground shipping. Never had any problems and usually here in 3-4 days.
  • Just started smoking cigars, got on order here and one order from another site, both were the next day using the cheapest shipping, live in TN

    Shipping is such a mark up. I'm fine with waiting a week. though I hate dealing with ups and fedex to get my packages...

    I call a company to see if they use the postal service for because my mail comes way before the ups or fedx the ups has been known to come at 5pm to my house

    UPS hasn't done me wrong yet...since they broke my guitar two years ago. I will never forgive them for that.

  • I use the cheapest shipping when dealing with CCOM. I live in AL and my sticks are usually here in 2-3 days and they are shipped with pillows so no worries.
