Default Buy online or in store?

Just wondering how many people buy their smokes online vs in a retail store? I was looking online at some prices, and wondering if anyone actually pays retail for a smoke.

I do both. I have a great B&M in Tampa that I shop at. I also watch for super deals online.

I do both. But i would say about 75-80% is online and the rest is when I go to a B&M to smoke.

I buy 90% online, mostly forum sales. I average maybe $50 a month in a B&M. It would be more if I used the B&M for their lounge/social aspects, but the store I prefer only has a very small lounge area that I never use. The money I save buying online vs. in store is just too much to pass up.

I started buying almost exclusively on-line but a few years ago found a B&M that I enjoy and have since purchased there more that half the time.

I haven't bought cigars in a while. I usually buy singles from the B&M and anything larger than that online.

Will do...thanks for letting me know.

What online sites do you guys use? I generally use ci, jrcigars, and famous-smoke for most. I need to find a good B&M where I would be a regular.

I do both. As soon as everyone starts buying 100% on-line for lower prices, our last sactuaries to smoke in (in many "smoke Nazi" states) will be gone, and those who have wives that won't let them smoke in the house will be chit outta luck in the winter.

When I can find the Marcas I enjoy in store, I will buy there.
