Hello all. This is my first post so please forgive if this question has already been asked. I could not find an answer on the site. Anyway. I would like some advice on a good online store. I have noticed that the prices vary greatly from place to place and would of course like to find a site with the best cigar prices . Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Folks here are very happy to answer cigar questions... except when it infers an unwillingness to spend the time to do at least some of your own research!
You have no idea what research I've done!I could not find anything as I said.(Ya should have "researched" my question) Funny how you have no answer but chime in just to be rude! Also rude to speak for EVERYONE else on this site. I myself am a member of many other forums and am very happy to help anyone, especially a newbie. Not a very good start here at Puff. Hope your not on any welcoming committees !
I wasn't merely talking about using our search function. I was suggesting that you might be a little more forthcoming about what research you had done so far, not to mention your experience with cigars and prior sourcing, before simply asking to copy off some else's paper.
And, while nothing says you MUST post an intro thread (see: https://www.puff.com/forums/vb/cigar...duction-forum/
) we do consider it common courtesy, especially if you expect to benefit from the accumulated knowledge of our members. At the very least, it would be nice to feel that any of that knowledge freely offered forthwith would be appreciated for the time, effort, and money that went into acquiring it.
No, I did not post any vendor names for you. My bad. Didn't know I was obligated to do so. Frankly, I don't shop that way, anyway. I don't mind paying a little more to deal with vendors I know and trust. But, also I know well enough that (if you're polite) our members will provide a broad array of online cigar vendors they frequent, or point you in the right direction to one of the dozens of threads already outlining them!
Still, as @Scap
said, there's no "one right answer". Some vendors are better for certain categories, but not others. Some may be unbeatable on a special they're running, but not necessarily the lowest otherwise. Some may have better customer service, and/or keep cigars in better condition, or have the best shipping - or offer samplers or fivers or singles on things that others don't. The "lowest price" isn't always the best deal; and in fact, it's almost impossible to pinpoint who does have the best price on a particular cigar on any given day (or week, or hour) without comparison shopping. Therefore, you'll get (or find) a lot of suggestions here on Puff. But ultimately, it's still up to you to discern which are best for your needs. That is called "research" and I've done enough of it to know that it's never final... nor finite!
