Now here is a very unique club! Two things really set it apart: you get to pick the pack of cigars you get each month, and there are only 2 levels of membership: 6 months or 12 months (no month by month option). And then there’s the bonuses…
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 $29 /mo for the 6 month option, about $27 /mo for the 12 month option – both include shipping
- Cigars: 5 (you get to pick your sampler!)
- Newsletter: Sort of. You get a members bulletin with lots of cigar info, but not necessarily related to the cigars you are getting
- Discount: Yes! Exclusive members-only promotions, discounts and bulletins every month
- Bonus: Multiple! You get a free humidor with your first month, then an additional luxury item (cutter, lighter, cigar case etc.) each month after that
We are a little confused if you also get free shipping on other orders. Here is what their site says: “Receive members only Priority Shipping & Handling on our entire inventory.” So is that free shipping or just faster shipping for members? We’ll see if they can clear that up for us.
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 25th of each month and we will ship that sampler. If we don’t hear from you by the 25th 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
We aren’t big fans of having to commit to a minimum of 6 months of the club, however, since it is so unique and offers quite a few perks – it may offset the commitment level. 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.
