As many of you know I am from the Great white north, Canada, AKA: the land of milk, honey and ridiculous tobacco taxes.
Humour aside; I'll be in Austin TX in a couple weeks and buying as many cigars as I can humanly bring back across the border (about 100 with the help of a friend's limit).
Here is the issue: with the unsettling discrepancy between the US dollar and the Canadian dollar (think around 50% CAD worth to USD) I need to find bundles, boxes, or deals that make this worth while.
Do you think I should wait to buy cigars in Austin??? or order online and ship to my hotel?
I know there were lists of "discount" cigars out there, but this is different because I'm interested in a good deal, not necessarily cheap. What sites do you get your best deals from?
Thank you so very much,
(I also plan on sending out a few more "random" packages once I get there!!)
ahh, the fun of travel!!
thanks Stefan, I will check them out!! (and mention your name!)
I would buy stuff online and have it shipped to you. Typically if you are buying boxes/bundles B&M's just can't compete with online prices.
I'm not sure what cigar stores are like in Texas or what the local taxes are.
I also agree with the sites Stefan posted. I would say that a majority of the cigars I buy these days come from one of those stores.
Yeah, if you're looking to buy like that, I hate to say it, but I'd go online. Significantly better prices on most things. I love you B&M shops, you know that, right?
