Haven't checked up on this thread in a while. Haven't been shopping in a while. Have a lot of inventory already and not smoking as much as I used to....But always interested a good deal...lol Haven't bought a new lighter in a while...may take a look...and you know...if I get a lighter...I might as well get another one of those Palio's cheap...gotta save on that shipping...LOL...Oh and then I might as well get some things to cut and light...maybe a box or 2 and some 5 packs...got to save on that shipping again...LOL
There are deals to be had still, but as Gary said, seems like they have a reduced lot sizes and the better deals tend to be in the freefalls. I was good and didn't buy more to "reduce" shipping. But for certain auctions in the freefall lane, you can get below the usual price on 5's and 10s. I was able to beat some of Cigarpage's deals. But sometimes, CP does a decent job on sticks that they don't put on Cbid. I have started to keep a spreadsheet of pricing from cp deals and some cbid freefalls. I wonder if I can host it or put it somewhere, so we can work to keep current pricing.
4 – Caldwell E.S. Midnight Express Robusto (5” x 50)
4 – Caldwell Dos Firmas Robusto (4.7” x 52)
4 – Caldwell The King is Dead Robusto (5.5” x 50)
4 – Caldwell Eastern Standard Robusto (5” x 50)
4 – Caldwell Long Live the King Corona Gorda (5.7” x 46)
They will go below $80 every cycle. The lowest I observed was $73.54
With shipping that comes to $80.49, or $4.03 per, if you buy nothing else.
The lowest prices I know of on these 20 cigars is at Cigarpage, would come to $136.68 total. Which makes the current cBid deal a 41% savings.
Macanudo Inspirado Red $18.00 for box of 10 ...WHAT! very good price for a pretty good cigar.
Yeah, that's a good one at a great price. Just saw the 5 Vegas Classic Torpedo 10 pack reset at $16.73. One of my favorite medium blends, but the stogie budget is tapped out for another week or three...

Hey Chuck. Those have been going for ~ $2.35 on cBid lately. How do they compare to an Undercrown Shade?
The Shade definitely has more of a bite to it, ever so slightly stronger, slightly spicier. The one issue with the 101 is the wrappers are super thin and I have had cracking issues, while smoking. Now I know Conn. shade wrappers are notorious for being fragile, this one just seems a little more so.
IMO, the time right after Christmas is the best time of the year to pickup deals on cBid. I've only bought one set so far, these prices are per cigar and include shipping.
Happy Hunting y'all.
