I ordered the Gladiator Sampler from Thompson Cigar in January. Their catalog shows a metal case that has a foam interior with cutouts to hold 12 cigars, a humidifier, a bullet cutter and a guillotine cutter. The sampler also came with their humidor solution and twelve cigars. Cost was $59.00.

After ordering the sampler, I got a call from Thompson explaining that their humidor solution was back ordered, and it would not ship until March. They offered to ship me everything else, if I didn't want the solution. No thanks, I'll wait, doesn't the solution retail for around $25?

So I finally get the sampler, and actually get it in February, earlier than expected. But the case is nothing like the one shown and described. Just a cheap metal case. No foam padding to protect cigars, no humidifier, no cutters.

Naturally I am unhappy with this unexpected case and make a complaint through the website. The response I get from Linda of Internet Customer Service, is very indifferent. Just states they apologize for the inconvenience, but the case is no longer available, so they substituted it.

So I reply that I am unhappy with their substitution and their response to my complaint. I tell them I am no longer going to do business with them if this is how they do business and handle complaints and ask to be removed from all of their mailing lists.

Linda's response - We have removed you from our catalog and email lists as requested.

Resolution in the works

AUTHOR: Mike33183 - (U.S.A.)

I was contacted through this site by a supervisor from customer service, Hoc Mai. I am very happy with the response, their apology and their assurance that the matter is being resolved. They gave me the option of getting the right case as soon as it's available or finding me a similar one if I don't want to wait.

Thompson

AUTHOR: Atlanta Guy - (U.S.A.)

Yep, that's Thompson. Overpriced, terrible private label cigars. There are much better places to order from.....particularly that place in NC ( won't mention the name, as it will be removed ). Anyway, as you have learned, stay away from Thompson.

I forgot to mention that I have also received the latest catalog, and they are still showing the same "unavailable" case and description for the sampler.
