Old Coach has Questions

coach946coach946 Posts: 10
Old man, but knew to this site.  My Question is, what makes this the best market out there?  Prelim, I've never ordered my sticks from anywhere else.  Always bought them from a BM store. 
Just threw this bone out to see what the Bulldog would bring home?

    I have never had a problem ordering here but from what I hear the customer service is top notch, if you have an issue they will make it right.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum @coach946

    Thank for the forum.  I've never had a problem either.  Was just wondering if anybody else did or where the prices fell for the competition.

    Hey coach, just noticed you were from Oklahoma, it seems I just read where our resident Oldfart @jmarta had friends or relatives from Oklahoma, where are you from?

    There are deals all over. Daily deals, sprint sale and getting on a ccom rep's email list.
    It's just like anything else, prices vary and you just have to,keep your eyes open,

    Here are the links, but they are on the site too.

    Daily Deal

    Deal of the Week

    Sprint Sale

    Call or email Ccom, ask for a rep. When you get one, Tim, Andrew, etc, email them and ask to be on their email sale list.

    Is there a list of upcoming brands.?
    Second choice......

    Welcome to the forum @coach946

    To be honest, I really enjoy a cigar with water. Second choice would be some nice sipping whisk(e)y, neat. Third choice is w/ coffee. 

    If if I may throw my .02, Ccom has good prices, takes care of her customers, and ships humidified. Plus they run this forum--one of the nicest corners of all the internet.

    Hope you'll stay and enjoy the company here

    Thanks jarubla
    I will go with your 2nd choice.  Right now a rock glass of Irish Whiskey and a Diesel Heart of Darkness.

    Sprint sale is one of those, what you see is what you get.
    If you are looking for a specific cigar, it is possible to sit there all day and not have it come up.
    Then again, I've been lucky and had stuff I like ahow up fairly regularly.

    As for pairing.
    I like my Sarsparilla and a cigar. 
    The Sarsparilla goes well with cameroons.
    It's all a matter of taste.
    If you like bourbon, whiskey or whatever, it all boils down to what you like.

    Thanks to everybody that responded.  Been away for a few days.  Checked out the sprint sale, loved the anticipation of the buy, could never close the deal.  but, like someone new to a game, I will figure it out.

    The sprint sale is quite addictive!  Thanks to the forum for introducing this old coach to a way to buy some new cigars that I wouldn't have never looked at!

    @coach946

    When on Sprint make sure you have a 2nd screen up that shows the cigars you are watching, at the top of the page "Cigar Brands". Too many people think the Sprint starting price is a deal, it ain't.

    Also make sure you know what "specials" are being offered. There are usually some good ones.

    As far as C.Com's service goes, you can't beat it. They have corrected problems for me that they did not cause.

    Sitting around and watching the Sprint Sale can be fun, and the free shipping is no doubt a bonus.  But if it were me, and there were a couple 5'ers I wanted, I'd just pick up the phone and call Andy - ask him, "Hey, I want this and that, and if it was on Sprint Sale, what would they go for?"  He'll say $x.00, and you're golden.  I've asked him more than once if they mind calls like that, or calls asking them to match the price on another site, and every time he says 'heck, no'.
    Yep. I remember buying a bundle then saw them on sale cheaper somewhere else the next day and they matched the price.

    Old Coach doesn't get scared off that easy.  Just been busy with offseason football and baseball season coming up..  If anyone is interested, I'm smoking a A J Fernandez Ruination with a rock glass of Jameson.
