(Update: We’ve just posted a full review of the club, check it out!)
Now here is a very unique club! Two things really set it apart: you get to pick the sampler pack of cigars you get each month, and there are 3 levels of membership: 3, 6, or 12 months (no month by month option).
Apparently, Mike’s Cigars doesn’t play by the book. Their club is very different from every other club we’ve run across so far! Here’s what you need to know:
- Price: about $30/mo – includes shipping
- Cigars: 5 (you get to pick your sampler!)
- Newsletter: Yup! You get a “Menu” with each shipment that describes the cigars
- Discount: Yes! Exclusive members-only promotions, discounts and bulletins every month
- Bonus: Multiple! You get a free humidor with your first month (6 or 12 month membership) and additional luxury item (cutter, lighter, cigar case etc.) each month after that (all memberships), free shipping on all other orders
The big thing to focus on here is the fact that you get to pick your 5 cigar sampler that you get each month.
You can visit our sampler section and choose any sampler from these pages (except a few that are unavailable). Send the name of that sampler to customer service before the 11th of each month and we will ship that sampler. If we don’t hear from you by the 11th we will ship the sampler of the month selected by our panel of experts.
We counted at least 7 samplers that sell for $29 or more. There are about 250 samplers to pick from. The neat thing about this program is that you can pick the ones that interest you the most.
Cigar Club Reviewer’s Take
Unlike just about all the other clubs we’ve seen, there’s no month-to-month membership. Instead, you need to commit to a 3, 6, or 12 month plan. However, it is a very unique club and offers quite a few perks. For anyone expecting to place more orders during the month, it seems like you’ll be getting good discounts and better shipping. We will definitely be looking further into this club.
