Full Version: A blind buy. Was it worth it?

I got an email of a "Secret Motherload Flight (Assorted Sizes)" of a brand I liked.  I wanted to see if it was a good deal, so I took a gamble and ordered it.

I ordered it late (after 10pm EST) on July 1st.  I choose to just use the free shipping, not the expedited shipping.  The place was not close by, in fact I'd guesstimate it was over 2,000 miles away.  (Note: Me being me, I just had to check it on Google maps... driving distance from my home is 2,452 miles).

So imagine my surprise when the mail comes yesterday with the package.

Here are the pics:

It was well packed in a box.

Oh, they needed protection, so I went with a body guard plan that was offered....

Wow, nice pick ups for sure.
Nice score!
Nice score!!!
Not too shabby a selection at all.

Whether or not it was a good deal would depend on the price you paid. Though a good selection of cigars, if you were charged like $749.99 shipped I'd have to say that the deal sucked. If it was $9.99, it would have been a steal. YMMV
Somewhere in between. Lol
Holy chit! Those are some nice selections.
