Folks - Not sure if you noticed the subtle change in the Points Contests. Going forward the gift certificate reward will be coming from Famous Smoke. Those guys have been a long time supporter of CG and it only makes sense for us to spend the money with them. I don't have any problems or ill will toward CI, but it has been primarily Famous that has kept the lights on here at CG. So now the reward will be for Famous Smoke Shop and you'll be able to add our special CG 17% discount on top of it.
BTW, don't forget to click through their banner when you buy from them and use our CG17 discount code. It is VERY hard to beat their prices especially when you add the discount code.
I swore off CigarBid because each of my last 3 orders had issues, either something didn't get shipped, or an auction didn't actually exist. (Isn't that illegal? I mean, can you sell something on eBay and then turn around and offer a substitute?!? WTF? I know they try to explain it away, and maybe that's acceptable once in a blue moon, but every 2 out of 3 orders?! To me, it feels like their process is really, really broken, or worse. Either way, I can't condone it, and by extension, CI.) I now order my "catalog" cigars from Famous, so it's great to know I've got a discount code I can use in addition to their free shipping policy. P.S. Famous' Auction is pretty darn good, too.
