Default Re: Any experience with egars.com???

If memory serves, Egars was actually owned by someone else about 3 yrs ago. I remember stumbling onto that site and checking it out, they had a picture of a gruff looking old guy that said he was the owner. He had a pretty good selection of cigars mostly they regular fare (Macs, Partagas, Montes and the like) and some other "new" stuff (Drew, Lars, and a few boutique stuff), the prices were good (not as good as some of the stuff on there now).

I went back there about a year ago and it was they way the site is now. I never went in too deep to the site, because I was buying from CI and FSS, just thought they had they best prices. I guess the only thing you can do is call and talk to them and trust your gut. One thing I would find out is what is in stock, you could sell boxes of DCMs for 50 bucks, but if you don't have it in stock it doesn't matter.

Who knows,maybe they are one of those maverick dealers, the kind that sell their product for what they want not what the manufacture tells them to. If thats the case, I would let people know here by PM's, might be some good deals to be had.

I have actualy ordered from egars and I know of two others who have also. Other than a mix up with the padilla miami's that Mr.B ordered there haven't been any problems with this site.

I was a little concerned about the site but since I got my order with out a problem they seem pretty good to me. Got a box of Tat P's and they are legit as far as I can tell.

I ordered from them in October 2007. I ordered a couple samplers and a humidor. No problems with the cigars, but the humidor was out of stock. Their customer service asked if I would like my money back, a different humidor, or if I wanted to wait until the humidor was back in stock. I asked for my money back and everything went well. I haven't ordered from them since that time though.

This site is getting a lot of discussion on several boards. I feel we will find out soon enough if they are for real. If they are, their pricing on all DPG blends (including Tats, My Father, etc) and Ashtons are outstanding. Will keep an eye on this thread. It is funny that their Anejo pricing is 10x their Opus pricing.

The price on the Anejos was bothering me so called to speak to them. They told me they are out of stock of the anejos but the price is correct! Two issues here. First $140 per single and second they do not have real time inventory which probably explains why they seem to be in stock with so many of these hard to find sticks.

I am hunting anejos right now and have stocked up on almost eveyrthing else... if my at collection starts getting low I will bightt he bullet and order.

Got my order in today from these guys. It was packaged fine but didn't come with a humidity device ( pillow ) so they arrived warm. They pack pretty much like CBID does but they arrived in great shape with no flaws. Only 4 days from start of the order to arrival. I ordered the La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Celebracion National - 7 x 52 - of which I did a review on earlier. I got a couple of 5 paks for $22 ( which is about $2 per stick,,,,I'll pay this all day long for this cigar )

Next order is for a box of Tats!

If those turn out to be legit I have a problem:

(1)Nowhere to store more boxes of smokes after the Monster got me in the last couple of weeks (including a box of VSGs and a box of San Cristobals).
(2)My credit card really could use some rest (see #1)
(3)My "wanna get at those crazy prices" list is scary long.

I am afraid to read this thread any more. :-)

I want to order a Palio from them but I'm scared since they aren't a dealer.

If they aren't a dealer, they may not honor the warranty...I would go through an authorized dealer.

I agree. Remember, Even though the price is around $35-40 a piece, you are also paying for a lifetime warranty. IMHO, These cutters are easily worth $20 atleast, and to pay $15-$20 to ensure that it lasts for decades is a good enough price.
