    Any American brethren that would be interested in forwarding a package to a fellow forum member once a month?

    Absolutely! Just sign up for the double-up option, give them my address and your credit card number, and we'll work out the details later.:th1:

    I just called P&C to ask a question before pulling the trigger. Years ago I signed up for a Book of the Month Club that was also a "no contract" deal. The problem was after I decided it was no longer for me I would forget month after month to close the account -- thinking about it only when a new book arrived. :doh:

    With that in mind, I thought the two-month option might be good. It would be a small commitment, but would give me an idea if I liked it. There would be an automatic end -- and would cost the same as going two months on the month-to-month. The question I asked was whether I could "re-up," change to monthly, if I really liked it -- without paying another 5-buck sign-up fee. (OK, call me cheap -- I prefer frugal.:)) They said that could be done.

    I also asked if they had a list to give one a general idea of some of the "national brand" tins that might be included. Nope. No information on that. Oh well, it was worth a shot since I had someone on the phone.

    I saw this on the upgraded website as well.. not sure if anybody noticed but the baccy reviews are a lot different now with the ratings and things. I am going to sign up for this starting next month. Good way to try things out.. and add to the cellar. I like it.. two thumbs up.
    Cheers

    It's not very expensive and there is no commitment.

    ...assuming their site matches their actual stock. I've called P&C before and scored Stonehaven when it was reported out of stock online.

    Plus one. I'll still keep track. Love to hear updates from the guys who did sign up. I just don't have a huge desire to end up with a bunch of sweet cavendish sitting on my shelf.

    I'm giving it a try for two months. Feel like that might give me an idea of what to expect. I do wish there was at least an option to express a preference for aromatic or non-aromatic. Maybe after launch they will be open to suggestions for fine tuning.

    I wonder if the selection is the same across the board or if each person gets a different bunch. If that's the case those of us who signed up could sign for a trading pool.

    If it's done anything like CI's cigar of the month club, everybody will get the same thing, the newsletter usually has a little information on that months selections.

    CI did right by me on the cigars, I didn't alway love what they sent but they didn't send any crap cigars, it was two years before I got a flavored cigar and I think that was only because it was something new that was selling well.

    I jumped in. FYI - PayPal is only good for a one time sale. I had to call and set up on cc if I wanted to stay on every month.

    I guess I had better call them today since I put it on PayPal. Did they say why it was only a one time thing? I've had other subscription based services on PayPal before and it took out once a month

    I emailed them because they didn't charge the one time $5 shipping, and I didn't want that to hold up my shipment. I also asked them to verify that I was automatically signed up for future months, and they said they were not able to do monthly auto billing to a PayPal account.

    I still have not been billed for my order and it now shows as backordered. Strange.
