www.cigarbid.com is a company that host 24 hour cigar auctions online! They have different types of auctions that members of the site can bid on!
What www.cigarbid.com does not tell you is how good the quality of the cigars are or where the cigars come from. There really is no telling where they come from, or how well the cigars have been kept humidified. A good quality cigar can be ruined within days if it isn't kept within the right humidification.
WHAT CIGAR BID DID TO ME!
I love to sit out on my patio and enjoy a nice cigar while I watch my kids play out in the yard! I am a cigar enthusiast and have been for quite some time now! I know a lot of the different varieties of cigars as well as where they come from, why they taste the way they do, what causes the level of strengths in each cigar, and how to take care of them when you have them at home. Cigar smoking is a passion and one that I deeply consider to be one of mine!
On 5/5/2012 I visited the www.cigarbid.com website and began bidding on whats called a free fall auction. They start the price of the cigars at one price and began to drop the price every second allowing you to catch the cigars at the lowest price. I bidder on a bundle of 20 Rocky Patel Connecticut cigars and won them at $45.15. Not bad right? I was very excited and couldn't wait to receive my cigars in the mail! The day they came in the mail I felt like a kid that just received a christmas present and ripped the box open right away! Inside I found my cigars nicely wrapped in a package but immediately realized that there was no kind of humidification device in the package. Not thinking much more into it I placed the cigars in my humidor and went about my day.
About a week later my father in law came by to visit me and I pulled on of the cigars out and sent him home with it. That night I decided it was time to try one for myself and so I began toasting the stick which lit up very quickly and took a big puff! The taste of the cigar was so repulsive that I vomited right their on my patio, loosing my wonderful dinner my wife prepared earlier! I threw the cigar down and went inside to investigate that rest of them. Taking a sharp razor blade I began cutting them in half to expose the tobacco within the connecticut wrapper. What I found was brittle dried out leaves that literally crumbled in my hands! I was PISSED!! Every single of them were this way! Not even one of the cigars was capable of being smoked!
I decided it was time to contact www.cigarbid.com and see if I could get a refund or replacement! What the lady told me had me cursing on the phone! She told me that because I had cut the cigars that there was nothing that they would do for me. I pleaded saying "Mamm, your company made a mistake by sending my bad cigars, and I made a mistake by cutting them to see if at least one of them was worth smoking?" I asked to at least be sent one good cigar that I could enjoy after spending $50.00 on 20 that where bad! Again she said that there was nothing that she would do! How's that for some customer service!
My suggestion would be to never order anything from www.cigarbid.com. This is an untrustworthy company that could care less about customer service! I WILL NEVER order a cigar from the site again myself! I will also do everything in my power to tell the world what this company has done to me!!
