    i've ordered from pipesandcigars.com and had a good experience (as well as bought from local shops) but what other sites are recommended? what has good selection of products as well as comparable prices?

    thanks for sharing!

    Pipesandcigars.com is very good. Smokingpipes.com is another standby. Great selection of pipes (both new and estate) and tobaccos, with friendly and knowledgeable customer service. http://www.smokingpipes.com/

    Of course, don't overlook Ebay for great deals on estate pipes.

    I've been buying the staples from wvsmokeshop for some time . Sadly , they're not selling pipe tobacco after july . Their prices are really good and they are cool people . I'm veering toward smokingpipes as their prices seem in line .

    Mars Cigars is good for tobaccos, especially bulk, though they rarely have pipes I can't live without. Speedy shipping and reliable.

    Both Mars (above) and Cup-o-Joes are my go-to on line sources.

    I use Pipes and Cigars and Cup O' Joe. I've had good luck with both. I've also used Milan Tobacconist once, and good luck there as well.

    4Noggins is highly recommended, but I haven't used them yet. However, when my house English blend is gone (currently C&D's Epiphany), I'm going to give 4Noggins and their Brit's Balkan a try because of the description provided by 4Noggins and the excellent reviews the blend has gotten on Tobacco Reviews.

    I got introduced to pipes through paylesspipes.com and I've yet to have a bad experience with them. I also use smokingpipes.com because they seem to have the mac daddy of selection though they can be a little slow for my tastes. I've also used justforhim.com, their selection and website are both hit or miss, but they ship at light speed. My last order was placed at 2 am on saturday morning and was on my front door monday afternoon via standard shipping. Unbelievable. I am going to try 4noggins next, and I've heard good things about cupojoes.

    I looked at these sites. I am on disability. Can anybody recomend a site that carries a good pipe for under $100.00?

    A good pipe under a c-note is easy and all the listed sites here should have some. Smoking Pipes has a "Pipe Locator" that will allow you to search their pipes by style, size and price and find one that you like. You should be able to find quite a few good pipes in the 50 - 75 dollar range. Or if you want to be very price conscious then look for a MM Cob pipe, they provide a good smoke for as little as 15 bucks. Also make sure to look at estate pipes, these are "used" but often they have very few flaws besides maybe some charring on the rim.

    Thank you all! I have looked at the MM site and am going to get a Cob pipe. Will check out smokingpipes.com, Beale.

    My choice of preference is Pipes and Cigars as they take orders in which I can use Paypal.
    I just ordered a shipment of baccy and they were prompt in sending my order.
    I hope to have it sometime this week.

    I just ordered a great Peterson 2011 St. Patrick's Day limited edition pipe for $76.00 from Pipes and cigars.com. This will be a great pipe for the price. Also, I ordered a very nice Ben Wade pipe from Cup O' Joes for around the same price. Give the pipes and and these 2 websites a try. Both are very reputable.
