Newbie Sampler Contest

I didn't do a year three contest, so I guess this is my third anniversary contest. Good traders list and all the other crap applies.

We get noobs on the forum a lot who are wondering what to smoke. I thought we could turn this into a contest and use cigar.com, our gracious sponsor, and maybe drive a little business to them.

Here are the rules. Go on to cigar.com and pick out up to $100 in cigars that you think a newbie who doesn't know anything about smoking should try. Put them all in your cart, add them up so we know what the final price is, and then post your suggestion.

You don't have to actually buy them! Just post a picture of your cart, or list your cigars and the total if that's too hard. You can take advantage of any deal or promotion that is current when you make your list, even if the promotion expires before the end of the contest. That means daily deals, weekly specials, build your own sampler, whatever you want. You can do a daily deal and a couple of singles and a build your own sampler or whatever.

edit: $100 in cigars, tax and shipping won't factor into the total price

The winner will be determined by votes. You can vote for more than one person if you want or change your vote at any time. If there are any ties, I'll break them.

The person with the most votes who has a sampler under $100 will win a non-newbie sampler from me. I hope you like tats and padrons.

Maybe we can have some fun and then point new guys to this thread when they ask!

Maybe we can also talk Lindsay into offering the winning sampler for a special deal! @TheCigarChick ?

You have two weeks to enter your submission and then we will run voting for another week after.

Aaaaannnnnnddddd go!

    Great idea for a contest Frank. Here's what I would suggest for someone that is just starting out.

    Don't let the wife know what you spend on guns, ammo or cigars.
