$39.95 for an 8 oz. bag of Stonehaven is pricey enough, not to mention no free shipping. But this line gets me: "AN ADULT SIGNATURE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL TOBACCO Purchase from NEW CUSTOMERS. A surcharge of $5 will be added to your payment. "
They charging $5.00 to new customers? Am I reading this correctly?
Sounds like a great way to ensure you:
a) don't acquire new customers
b) ensure the first time customers don't become second time customers.
These guys are business geniuses!
Yeah. I love stonehaven, but I'm never home when things are delivered anyway. Five dollars an ounce, plus the delivery, plus the shipping costs, plus the validation of my ID? Yeah, I think I'll sit this round out. Good find though.
Woa you guys complain like little school girls lol. I understand the 5$ isnt that great but i dont mind the signature part for new customers. A teenager could use their parents card to order something
It's true. I understand the policy. But there's a [really] good chance I'd miss it twice and be paying a restock fee. If it was just the signature, or just the five extra dollars, or just the slightly hiked price, I would try to work around it; but all of them at once, is enough to get me to wait for an order from SP or PandC. I respect their ethics. The practice to set up these security measures may or may not be their choice, but buying from them or not is most definitely my choice. I've got plenty tucked away anyway; It'll just give someone who's never tried it a chance I suppose.
This is on my yet to try list but I don't think I will pull the trigger either. I will play the lottery on the other major e-tailer sites.
I still have a few flakes left that Dave gave me. I'm sorely tempted to stockpile some more though
let me know if you want some more, being part of the commonwealth does have its advantages lol
I go to the main page and the price says N/A but it lets me add to the cart, does that mean it is or isn't in stock?
they have that for some pipes too. some of their peterson pipes are n/a then the price will show up.
Does that mean that they have Penzance in stock too!!!!!!!!
and balkan sobrani and the so to bed
I'm guessing that its some amateur webmaster that simply puts N/A when they don't have have something but forgot to remove (or doesn't know how to remove) the button to add an item to the shopping cart (which is ignorant and has no inventory tracking). A sad reality in the wilds of the internet. But hopefully we'll find out. I sent them an email.
My inquiry about the stonehaven had this response:
"Sorry, as of yesterday nothing is available."
i bet 15 minutes after i posted it was all gone hehe
Another strike out for me. But one day... ONE DAY... I shall find some of this mythical tobacco.
This is the one Etailer that I had a nightmare experience with, they sold it to me, as in stock, of course it wasn't. Then I waited, and waited, email after email with this Mike guy....when I finally received it, got dinged with a huge cost from UPS Brokers well over $100.00. Never again!
CVT may be a great B&M for those local to its business, but I found all the extra charges and costs to be ridiculous!
But if they have it in stock, it will soon be in stock everywhere. For a few hours, anyway.
Thanks for the heads up, Dave! The frenzy has began...
for you go to my smoking shop . uk and look for germain rich dark flake.
Sometimes ya gotta pay to play!
