    This ^^^^

    Famous, Neptune, and Emerson’s are all good choices for me.

    I like Small Batch but I live in Cali and they want to blow my brains out on taxes. Fox is good too.

    Do you check Cigar Monster? Shipping won't be any faster but it's still Famous and a lot of the stuff they sell on Monster ships free

    Good reminder. I often forget about the Monster. I’ll check often.

    I use my local shop plus Famous (17% discount on some items) and Neptune (15% discount on all items I have purchases even OpusX). Both are sponsors and offer discounts to BOTL forum members.

    No, unfortunately there is no BOTL discount at Tobacco Grove.

    I chose other but most of the ones that have already been mentioned are places I buy from... Probably a total of 15 because not every business has the same pricing so I tend to find the best price or as they say... Bang for the buck!

    I also voted “Other”. No “favorite” per se but my recent orders have been placed with Neptune’s, Anthony’s, Egars and Hilands. Also ordered directly from Isabela and got 3 bonus smokes after I put in the promo code “katpack”.

    I'm like the others here and pretty much shop where the best prices and deals are at the time of said purchases. I'll check famous or small batch to see if they have stock of what I want and compare to see if it's more reasonably priced with our discount codes. They're 99.9% of the time the first places I check before jumping to other vendors.

    I think for what you are looking for, you can basically get some good deals in a couple ways:

    Sign up for their email list. Yes...it gets tedious...9am every day Im inundated with 9 emails tempting me to spend my money. That being said, I usually find what I want when it goes on sale, so bonus.

    I have had good luck with cigarpage.com for my run of the mill 'not boutique but delicious' smokes. Good pricing when they're on sale, offer 5ers, 10's, and boxes usually of most everything. Constant sales....

    Other covers everything else for me.

    A good resource is the Deal of the Day thread here too. I keep my eye on that when it is updated. Good luck either way.

    I started using Cigars Daily and I am loving them! Tim is really Goofy but me on YouTube and his deals though somewhat limited are fantastic. And he provides fast and affordable shipping out of Arizona.

    I also use CigarBid a lot. You do have to exercise great patience and watch the bids, but wow, can you get great deals! All I ask is that you don't throw down bids on auctions >>JH in Twin Falls, ID << is bidding on (big toothy grin)!

    When I was active on CBid, I never knowingly bidded against a brother or someone with an APO addy.
