Once Halloween ends, it's time to start thinking about winter holiday gifts. Whether you like shopping for holiday gifts or not, if you have family or friends, it can't be avoided. Fortunately, if you have to go shopping for a fellow aficionado (or feel like buying a nice little gift for yourself), the Thompson Online Cigar Store has lots of excellent options. While you could just buy that lucky person a box of wonderful, quality cigars, items that combine great cigars with something else are very suitable for both veteran aficionados and people who have never tried a cigar.
One such fine gift item is the Romeo and Julieta Habana Reserve Toro Natural Cigars with Tire Gauge. Buy this gift set and the happy recipient will get the chance to enjoy five high quality Romeo and Julieta Toro Naturals. Given the excellent, medium to full bodied cigar experience that comes from drawing on these fine smokes, that would be a fine gift on its own. However, in addition to enjoying those excellent cigars, the recipient also gets a quality tire pressure gauge. This isn't a simple metal gauge either but a sleek and accurate digital tire pressure gauge that's easy to use and tells you exactly how much air is in the tires of your vehicle.
Cigars have a much longer history than most people realize. Native Americans were fermenting and enjoying tobacco for hundreds if not thousands of years before the arrival of Columbus and at least one Mayan image dating back to the 13th century shows someone smoking what appears to be a cigar. The Spaniards discovered the beauty of fermented tobacco shortly after colonizing the Americas and cigars eventually spread to Europe and elsewhere. Although little information is known about the cigar shop from before the 18th century, we do know that tobacconists were selling cigars in many parts of Europe and the Americas by the 1820s. At that time, since a high percentage of the populace was illiterate, a statue of a wooden Native American was used to denote the location of a cigar shop. This emblem was used because tobacco played such an important, sacred role in native cultures.
Those early tobacco shops resembled the ones that graced many small American towns and cities up to the 1970s and 80s. The culture was also similar and involved very knowledgeable tobacconists who worked closely with customers to find the best cigars for their needs. Although customers could and did ask for specific brands of cigars, the owner of the cigar store was also expected to be capable of recommending a good cigar for the morning, everyday smokes, and high quality cigars for special occasions. Cigar smoking began to decline in popularity during the 1970s and 1980s along with a similar decline in traditional cigar shops. Once the Internet happened, fewer brick and mortar cigar stores became available as the popularity of the online cigar store grew. Although one can still find brick and mortar tobacco shops here and there, the online store has more or less taken over because a good online cigar store provides a wider variety of product for low prices as well as expert tobacconists ready and eager to recommend a good cigar.

Cigars that sell for a discount don't always end up being the best cigars in your humidor. Many of us have purchased wholesale cigars that ended up generating a less than ideal smoking experience. Although we might have used them for everyday smokes or gave them away, we didn't exactly reach for those cheap sticks when we wanted to smoke a quality cigar. That experience has kept many of us from buying other discount smokes but the smartest aficionados keep on buying discount cigars and enjoy quality sticks for low prices with every purchase. Here are a few hints on how they make that happen:
Shop for cigars at a trusted, well established online cigar store: Buy cigars from an online store like Thompson Cigar and not only can you trust what is said, but there's also a much better chance of finding a variety of quality sticks for low prices. Search the Thompson Cigar sale page and you might find great cigar deals on sticks like the Victor Sinclair 55 Series Churchill Sampler.
There are two main places for buying cigars but one of them offers far better deals on a consistent basis than the other. That one place to shop for cigars, cigar accessories, and other tobacco-related items is the online cigar store. Buy cigars at the right online store and you can be sure to find great savings on many types of cigars every day of the week. However, you also have to know where to look for the best cigar deals. These are a few surefire ways to always save on cigars every time you shop for them:
Only buy cigars from a well known, online cigar store that has been in the business for a while: A cigar distributor that has been around for nearly 100 years is going to be a much more reliable place to shop for smokes than fly by night sites or ones that have little experience with cigars. The Thompson online store demonstrates deep connections and experience with the cigar industry by always offering discounts on hundreds of smokes, offering great deals on exclusive cigar brands, and wonderful prices on a huge variety of smokes.
Check the Thompson Cigar sale page: Click on the Thompson Cigar sale page and you will find far more than cigars on sale. There are also pages for closeout deals, outlet cigars, cigar deals, and other ways to save on premium smokes.

If you are still buying your cigars from brick and mortar cigar shops, there are several reasons why you might be better off buying cigars from a reliable online cigar store. If you have already ordered cigars from an online store then you are probably already aware of the main reasons why this is the best way to buy cigars. However, if you have yet to shop for cigars online or still make most of those cigar purchases at a local cigar shop, the following two reasons might convince you to do all of your cigar buying at the Thompson Online Cigar Store:
More and better cigar deals: A good online store can offer so many deals, you might not know where to look first. For example, click on just about any page at the Thompson Cigar site and you will find sales on cigars, accessories, humidors, and much more. However, head to the cigar deals page and the Cigar Auction and you will probably find some of the best deals on cigars that you have ever seen. This is because unlike brick and mortar stores, an online store can carry more product, has far more customers, and can thus offer more deals.
Cigar samplers, cigar accessories and more: A good online store like that of Thompson Cigar carries products held in a warehouse and can thus offer many more samplers, quality cigars, and much more than a brick and mortar shop.
Find excellent deals on premium cigars and much more at Thompson Cigar today.
Cigars can come in boxes, be bought as single sticks, be purchased as cigar samplers, or come in bundles. Each form of purchasing the sticks we love to smoke has its purpose but there's at least one other way to buy cigars. Shop at the Thompson online cigar store and you can also buy smokes as five packs. But why buy cigars in the form of a five pack when you can get more of them in boxes and bundles?
There's more than one good argument for purchasing five-packs, including the following two reasons:
Travel: Unless you happen to be taking a vacation of a month or more, you won't need to bring a box of cigars with you. Besides, carrying a box of cigars while traveling is kind of a pain anyway. Instead, buy a couple of choice five-packs to have just the right number of sticks for travel. It will also be a good excuse for treating yourself to fine smokes like a five pack of Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Toro Maduros.
Buy more five-packs and get a bigger discount: When you buy certain five packs from the Thompson online cigar store, you also save more. For example, if you buy 2 five packs, you can get 41% off, buy 3 and you might get a discount of 51%. However, when you buy 4, you can get up to 59% off!

It's easy to think that good cigars are always going to cost a lot but in actuality, they really don't have to. Sure, it's going to be very difficult to find low prices on some legendary brands like Cohiba and Macanudo but when you shop at the right online cigar store, you can at least still find good prices on those and other high quality cigars. Then there are other cigars that are really good, satisfying smokes but just aren't as well known as some of the more popular brands. If you know how to keep your eye out for those choice sticks, you can find some very good deals on cigars.
Look in the right places and the aficionado eventually realizes that premium cigars don't have to cost an arm and a leg. Take Don Rafael Vintage Cigars as an example. These are quality, hand-made cigars created by the same expert cigar maker behind Victor Sinclair cigars. Aged Dominican tobaccos and choice wrappers are used to create these wonderful sticks but despite their top shelf nature, for a limited time, you can buy them for less than $30 a box. The quality long filler tobaccos used to make these smokes turn them into either very fine everyday cigars or premium smokes for a fantastic low price. Either way, they make for a very satisfying cigar experience.
Cigar experts need to stock their humidors now and then and are always watching for good deals on quality cigars. Although they may know how to recognize subtle differences in flavor and quality of the wrapper, they still need to buy cigars like the rest of us. So, that raises a very good question: "Where do cigar experts go when they want to buy cigars"? In a sense, the answer is intuitive because they are probably going to look for cigars in the same places as any aficionado of fine tobacco. Cigar experts always shop for smokes in places with:
Good prices: You wouldn't buy cigars at a store that only sells them for high prices and neither would any expert with common sense. For example, a place that sells single cigars of the winning, 96 rated, Flor de Antillas Sun Grown Toro for the excellent price of just $6.90 a stick is probably going to have a lot of cigar deals.
A wide selection of premium cigars: Cigar experts don't want to shop at a place that offers the same old selection of cigars. Since they want to try something new now and then, they look for cigars at a well stocked online cigar store.
Excellent, knowledgeable service: Although a true expert on cigars probably doesn't need much advice on smokes, they still like to hear suggestions from people who are passionate about cigars and know what they are talking about. This is yet one more reason why so many experts shop at the Thompson online cigar store.

If you are just getting started out with cigars, it can be tough to find the best place for buying your smokes. Although you might find a few choice sticks at a local cigar chop, you don't really know if the prices are good ones until you get the chance to compare them with smokes from other shops and online stores. Since it can be tough and time consuming to find several brick and mortar cigar shops, it's much easier to look for smokes online. At online cigar stores, you also have to look around and see which ones offer the best bargains on cigars the most often.
During that process, you also have to watch out for online stores that might not deliver the goods. Although that's not such a common occurrence, it has happened enough to warrant shopping for cigars from a company that has been around for nearly one hundred years. That company is Thompson Cigar and since we have been meeting the needs of aficionados since the early part of the 20th century, new cigar smokers should feel good about buying cigars from our online cigar store, especially when they see the multitude of cigar deals that we offer every day of the week. At our site, you can get free shipping on certain cigars, find plenty of premium cigars for low prices, and even participate in cigar auctions.
Whether just starting with cigars or having enjoyed them for 30 years, you will find the best deals on cigars at the Thompson online cigar store.
Finding gifts for people who are just starting out with cigars can be easy as long as you shop in the right place. The gift possibilities at most local brick and mortar shops are going to be limited at best and probably over-priced. Instead of looking for gifts at a local cigar shop (if you can find one), check out the Thompson Online Cigar Store for a wide array of gift items that range from singles of premium cigars to every type of cigar accessory. However, if you want to spend as little time as possible in picking out a gift for a new aficionado, buy the Black Leather 20 Count Humidor with Accessories. This makes for a fantastic gift for anyone just starting out with cigars because:
It includes a humidor: Every cigar smoker needs a humidor and the sooner that special person gets one the better. Cigars can't be safely stored without it! In addition to the 20 count humidor, this cigar deal also includes a small traveling humidor.
Double-bladed cigar cutter: Cigars need to be cut before smoking them and a cigar cutter is designed for the task. The new aficionado is going to need one and this double-bladed cutter works like a charm.
Cigar case: Cigars should never be carried in a pocket without some form of protection. The black leather two finger pocket cigar case is ideal for bringing a couple of smokes to the golf course, or to enjoy after a fine meal.
Many aficionados are successful in business and other endeavors. Whether it's because we have the right mindset for success, are very determined, or just lucky, we know how to enjoy the good life and strive to do so. It allows us to appreciate and collect premium cigars but it's worth it to know when you should buy those fine sticks. For example, even if you can afford it, it doesn't make sense to buy cigars that you can't properly store. Never commit that sin or those precious sticks will dry out and be impossible to smoke.
Instead, buy smokes on the following occasions:
The humidor could use some more cigars: If stocks are running low in the humidor, this is one of the obvious times for ordering more cigars. Think about buying a couple of samplers like the 90 Rated Dynamic Dozen to ensure that you have a good supply of quality sticks.
Travel: Whether it's a business trip or a family vacation, buy some of your favorite smokes to take add further enjoyment to time away from home.
A month before an event: You don't want to keep good cigars sitting around for too long so time your purchase and buy them about a month before you hope to smoke them. They can be stored for longer than that but the sooner you enjoy them the better.
We would all love to enjoy a couple Cohibas a day but for many of us, that's not even close to being an option because we just can't afford it. Sadly, some of us have other responsibilities that don't allow for a huge cigar budget. Nevertheless, there are ways to enjoy many a great cigar even with a low budget and the following three tips will help:
Check the Thompson Online Cigar Store every day of the week: If you shop for choice smokes at a brick and mortar cigar store, that reduced cigar budget might only allow for 3 or 4 sticks a month. Fortunately, the online store at Thompson Cigar makes it possible to find a variety of ways to save on cigars. Just search for your favorite brands and there's a good chance you will find a discount. However, if you are looking for even better deals, check out the excellent low prices at the Cigar Outlet.
Buy more and save: This is one of the easiest ways to spend less on cigars and still manage to fill the humidor with quality smokes. For example, a 25 count bundle of hand-rolled Flor de Filipinas might sell for less than $14!
Work the cigar auction: Our cigar auction could be the best way to buy premium cigars for rock bottom prices. Since you won't be the only aficionado at the auction, you can't expect to win every deal but work it enough and you will eventually get great cigars and accessories for fantastic prices.

Swisher Sweets are one of the more popular cigars in the USA. While these reliable little cigarillos aren't rolled by hand, they come through with delicious, satisfying tobacco flavors, and can be had for an excellent low price. Of course, as with any cigar, the price you pay depends on where you buy them but when you shop for smokes at the Thompson Online Cigar Store, you know you are going to find a huge number of sticks for excellent low prices. Swisher Sweets are no exception and can be purchased from Thompson for less than 60 cents a stick. Fans of these delicious little sticks also love how Swisher Sweets can be quickly enjoyed during lunch break or smoked for a bit, put out, and then finished at some later time.
Swisher Sweets also come in more flavors than some people realize. In addition to the ever popular natural sweet series, grape, rum, peach, and other flavors are also available. Whether extra flavors are added to Swisher Sweets or not, all of these satisfying sticks are crafted with a time-tested, four nation blend of quality tobaccos. The result has been enjoyed by millions of aficionados for decades and continues to be a popular everyday smoke to this day.
When it comes to great cigars, who wouldn’t love to pay less? Nothing brings this thought to mind quicker than when we visit a brick and mortar cigar kiosk in a mall or airport, because the prices they charge are nothing short of an absolute outrage - especially if the stick in question is an average, everyday smoke! Instead of searching for nonexistent bargains at such places, your time and money could be much better spent shopping for cigars at the Thompson online cigar store.
Thompson Cigar Co. is the first place to go for true savings and deals on literally hundreds of cigars. Even within the Thompson Cigar site, however, it's worthwhile to know exactly where the best deals are listed. The finest of cigar deals aren't necessarily the sticks that cost the least, but are the cigars that offer the best value. In other words, what you should seek out are high quality smokes that go for everyday prices. The place to look for such fine cigar deals is at the Thompson Cigar Outlet. Although the brands and prices offered change on a regular basis, there are always a few amazing deals that are impossible to pass up.
For example, check out the Closeout Deals page and you might find a box of excellent Honduran cigars for an excellent low price or a fantastic Robusto Cigar Sampler that sells for half of its regular price! Stop by today and you’re sure to walk away with more thank you were expecting!
Once aficionados buy cigars online, they rarely purchase any more smokes from brick and mortar shops. Even during travel, they pass up the cigars being sold in airport kiosks or at the train station because they bring their own. They don't need to buy any extra cigars because it's so easy and so much cheaper to just stock up on cigars from an online cigar store. In addition to better prices overall and the quick and easy process of ordering cigars online, the following are a few more benefits of buying smokes from an online store:
The best cigar deals: An online store run by an experienced, wholesale cigar distributor is filled with deals and sales on cigars. Unlike a brick and mortar cigar store, the online store can afford to sell cigars for lower prices because they sell directly from their warehouse and have ample supplies.
Variety: A good online cigar shop can carry literally hundreds of cigar brands. For example, at the Thompson Cigar website, you can find good prices on everything from the amazing 96 rated Flor de las Antillas Toro Sun Grown (the top cigar for 2012) to bundles of lesser known, quality, everyday sticks.
The cigar auction: No brick and mortar shop hosts an auction 365 days of the year on cigars and cigar accessories. Thompson Cigar does, though, and it gives aficionados the chance to find amazing savings on cigars and cigar-related items.
Buy cigars with less hassle and lower prices at Thompson Cigar today.
If you buy cigars once in a while, then you are probably familiar with them being sold as single sticks and boxes at brick and mortar shops in such places as airports and malls. While that is a pretty straightforward way of buying cigars, it's far from being the least expensive. In fact, unless those cigar shop owners have decided to give cigars away for free, it's probably the most expensive means of acquiring the sticks we love to smoke. If you really want to find great savings on cigars, you are going to find some of the best deals when purchasing cigar bundles from an online cigar store.
To find those great wholesale prices, look for big cigar bundles and deals that offer two bundles for the price of one. Since these deals give you more cigars for less, it's an excellent way to stock your humidors, get a good batch of everyday smokes, and cigars to pass out at parties and events. Look around the Thompson online cigar store and you will discover that many of those cigar deals also include quality sticks. For example, the Don Oswaldo 2-fer Sumatra deal makes it possible to buy 40 delicious Dominican cigars with Sumatra wrappers for about $40. For an even cheaper cigar deal on Sumatra wrapped smokes, 40 La Veleza Coronas have been on sale for less than $30!
Those of us who are old enough can recall the tobacco emporiums of our youth. Back in those days, it was pretty easy to find a shop that only dealt with cigars and other tobacco products and the owner would often be able to recommend the right cigar for any occasion. Unfortunately, most of those charming tobacco stores are long gone and have been replaced by strip malls and housing. Although this means that walking to a nearby tobacco shop is no longer an option, nowadays, we can buy cigars from the comfort of our homes when shopping at the online cigar store. The following are three of the biggest benefits associated with buying smokes from the Thompson online cigar store:
Variety: While those old cigar shops could only carry a certain number of cigar brands, there are hundreds of brands to be found in the Thompson online cigar shop. These include everything from unique flavored cigars to top rated premium, award winning sticks like the Flor de Las Antillas Sun Grown Toro.
Delivery to your door: No waiting in traffic or spending hours searching for that tobacco emporium. It only takes seconds to order cigars and they get shipped right to your front door.
Cigar deals: Look for cigars at the Thompson online shop and you will find more deals on cigars and cigar sales than you ever imagined.

When you enjoy cigars on a daily basis, finding the best deals on quality smokes, cigarillos, and other aged tobacco treats takes on a higher degree of importance. Back when you enjoyed a few cigars over the course of a month, you could afford to pay top dollar for a box of Cohibas now and then at the local tobacco shop. However, now that you smoke two or three cigars a day, there's a lot more financial incentive to find better deals on Cohibas and cheaper, everyday smokes. One such smoke is known as the Garcia and Vega 1882, a fantastic find for aficionados with a tight cigar budget.
As their name implies, Garcia and Vega 1882 Cigarillos have been around for quite a few years. These cigarillos offer up a fine, mild smoking experience for an excellent price. A lot of people compare them to delicious Backwoods Cigars in terms of flavor and wholesome, satisfying tobacco taste except that the price for these great little smokes is even lower. Order Garcia and Vega 1882 Cigarillos from the Thompson online cigar store and you can get 80 of these fine little cigars for less than $30! With a deal like that, who knows how long supplies will last so place you order today!
Shop at the Thompson Online Cigar Store and you will find your fair share of cigar deals. Many of the cigars are going to cost less than buying them at a nearby tobacco shop because they are offered for low, on sale prices. However, while saving on cigars by simply searching and finding your favorite everyday smokes and premium cigars, you can also find some of the best deals on the site by checking out the offerings on the Cigar Sale page. Visit the page, take a look around, and it won't take long to find some truly amazing discounts on quality cigars and accessories.
For example, how about a box of twenty, fantastic, premium Honduran cigars for less than $2 a stick? The Sonador Habano Robusto Grande Corojo originally sells for more than $130 but if you order before supplies run out, a 20 count box of these fine smokes is available for $39! Crafted with choice tobaccos that have been aged four and five years, this is truly a top shelf smoke that deserves a premium spot in any humidor.
Or, how about the Best of Boutique Blends 10 Cigar Sampler? Originally available for more than $70, if other aficionados don't buy them all first, you can get this wonderful sampler for less than $35! It includes such boutique Dominican smokes as Swap, Small Batch King (S.B.K.), and Aging Room.
