Random quote: A broken heart is what makes life so wonderful five years later, when you see the guy in an elevator and he is fat and smoking a cigar and saying long-time-no-see.

I was over to the JR website. looking at the JR Luxury Cigar Club. Seems a little weird to me.

You pay $25 to join the club, and then you get a 10% "discount" on the "Luxury" cigars they offer. The fee is automatically added to the initial order of any Luxury cigar[s].

So it seems to me that you have to join the club in order to buy the Luxury cigars. Am I correct? If so what kind of a discount is it?

If the only people who can buy these cigars must be members who get 10% off, then all of the Luxury cigars sold get purchased for 10% under the alleged "retail price". So a person buys a $25 membership in order to buy cigars at the same price as anybody else who is permitted to buy them.

I guess I don't really mind that they have a fee to get special offerings (not much!). But don't claim to offer a discount for that fee, if that fee simply allows one to pay the same rate as everybody else.

Again, am I reading this right?

I guess they figure that as a member you will buy enough luxury cigars at 10% discount that it makes up for the one time $25 membership fee. Although anyone can buy them at regular price, you have to be a member to also receive "special E-mail offers. It might be a good deal if they have things you cant find locally.

From the JR site:

"The $25.00 fee will be added to your first purchase of any Luxury cigar item should you choose to join."

Ah - I probably should have read the last five words as long as I had started the sentence.

thanx.
