    Probably about 5-7 minutes, and then I got confirmation.

    I have my orders and confirmations , just never showed, I gave up finally after sending them a note, two different offers from two companies and nothing showed from either, but maybe my mailman is happily smoking them

    Never got mine either. They must have drawn names from a hat. Could not have been 1st come, 1st serve. I was one of the 1st to order. :wch:

    That reminds me, I still have that coupon for $3 off a pouch of Captain Black. Must see if its still valid.

    Never got mine, either. A couple months after I filled out the form (and had pretty much forgotten about it) I did get an email saying they "couldn't confirm my age". Not worth the hassle to try again, IMHO.

    Neither did I, lol. I guess it blew up bigger than they expected and so they cut it off short, or maybe it was just a marketing stunt to see which tobaccos were most popular and they had no intention of sending anything out. :msty:

    This is also really old and not even offered anymore as far as I know.

    I got my Velvet sometime ago, around the time I got a sample of a very well known, highly regarded tinned blend. The Velvet, as negligible a reputation as it may have, embarrassed the tinned blend.

    I've yet to try recent Velvet, but I've been smoking early 70's Velvet and it's been pretty good. A mild honey flavor that's really aged, still good to the bottom of the bowl.

    Got my pouch of Velvet last June... :) Liked the flavor but wow my mouth and tongue did not like that smoke.
    In retrospect I really should have tried something not really available locally...Like Troost or something.

    I jumped on this when it first showed up (well over a year old now) and got confirmation etc only to get emailed 3 weeks later stating US only.
    Added insult was the sudden swamping of spam email. From what I've seen in my time here is it's a little hit and miss if you get your samples and usual deal seems to be country of origin only, which makes sense I guess since it's a freebie

    If your lucky enough to live in the same country as a blender/tobacco company perhaps try emailing them about what they could suggest for you to try and see if they're likely to be persuaded to part with some samples.

    And good luck to any who try.

    The last coupon I got from them was for a pouch of tobacco for $1.00. It is worth registering for the coupons if you like their blends.
