    About a year ago I stopped by one of those Smoker's Outlet type places. I saw two 8 oz bags of Dan's Blue Note marked $26.99.
    I drove by there today and decided to stop in to see if they were still there and if maybe I could talk them down a few dollars since it's been around a year or more.
    The lady said she would go $20.00.
    I looked in my pocket and only had $17.00. She said sold!
    So I took it and ran!
    So was 17 bucks for 8 ounces of Dan's Blue Note a good deal?

    Hi Don,
    I can't say I've ever smoked it, but that is still one great deal! Enjoy!

    Yes it is a very good deal, especially for a sleazebag like yourself. If your not satisfied I know an old bird with a severe skin rash that would be willing to trade you out of it.:whis:

    I'm thinking about it. Or any of my local pipe buddies wants it, I will give them the info and the shot at it.

    Ha, living with Canadian prices, I would say you practically stole it. :)

    If you like Blue Note, it was a very good deal.

    Where is this place and why did I not know about it?!?!?!

    I have a few of those bags, and paid almost twice that 5 years ago.

    And Australian prices that works out about $18 an oz less than here that would be about $160 here.

    Don, I would say that was a good deal. If you enjoy Blue Note, then it was a great deal! Enjoy it!:th1:

    That's really cool Mington. Most tins of Dan tobacco are $10-13 per 2 oz. One pound bags are $60+, so you got a great deal.

    Way to go. Whenever I try to talk the down in price they just grab me up by the scruff of the neck and seat of the britches and give me the bum's rush. Sometimes they punctuate their displeasure by giving me a good swift kick in the rump as well.
