Personally, I have never had anything but good experiences from Famous. I am sure this will be a lengthy thread since the vast majority are intimately aware of them. Don’t expect the newest stuff out quick or HTF sticks very often. But the Monster deals can be amazing (Just this week bought a 24 ct box of Oliva Serie G Maduro Belicosos for $31), as can some of their promotions. Not much on their in house exclusives and such myself, but I have certainly bought a LOT of cigars from them.

They always ship within a day or two, usually well packed, can’t remember a problem. The one time I ever had a damaged stick was a damaged pigtail and they refunded it immediately and let me keep the stick. All in all, a really good online retailer, mostly from the deal/stock up category though.

I have had more good experiences than bad ones with them.

There was some unpleasantness a couple years back where we did need to use the power of the CG community to get them to make things right.

Other than that, though, they have provided good service and have replaced damaged cigars without much trouble.

Never once had an issue with any of the boxes I've bought from them. Has errors in my order recently (my own fault) and they still were prompt to react and correct them without delaying the shipment at all.

I have used Famous numerous times in the last few years. You sometimes come around a good sale on their site, but their everyday prices can be on the higher end. The Monster mashup is where its at, great prices and usually free shipping. They do ship quick and nicely packed. FYI apply code lovefamous at checkout and it gets $10 off orders $50 or more.

Just a quick FYI for you, Gary:

Capoeira was re-branded as 'The Judge by J. Fuego'. Same cigar in new, hot packaging.

Your search is over.

Cheers!

I ordered from the Monster site a couple months ago and didn't receive free shipping, so be careful. On today's postings I see that they are back to free shipping though.

 It shows under each item whether free shipping is available. Generally cigars--unless they are very cheap--are shipped free.

I’ve found them to be have the best price on some some HTF stuff like Tat La Verite.

I placed another order with Famous Friday morning. Shipped same day and I received the nicely packed cigars today. This time I used the CG code and got 17% off - nice! I wish I knew about the code last time when I placed a $200 order.
