Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are filtered cigars? Are they like cigarettes?
A. Filtered Cigars are wrapped in a natural tobacco paper instead of a chemical-filled "fire safe" paper. Filtered Cigars are not cigarettes, but many smokers enjoy them just as much, if not more! If you are not sure which brand to try first, we highly recommend trying our Variety Sampler to help you decide which brand is best for you.
Q. Are your cigars and tobacco fresh?
A. Yes! All of our products are guaranteed to be fresh! BuyDiscountCigars.com uses a "just in time" inventory model. This means that we do not keep or store large amounts of product in our warehouse. Your cigars and tobacco products will be as fresh as possible!
Q. How old do I have to be to order cigars or pipe tobacco from your website?
Depending on the state you live in, you must be 18 or 19 years old to order.
Q. What about taxes?
At this time, there are no federal reporting requirements for the sale of cigars to individual consumers. However, laws vary by state and jurisdiction. It may be your responsibility to report your purchases to your state or local government in order to pay any applicable state or local taxes. Please contact your state or local tax authorities to determine what taxes may or may not be due. As of recently we have had to add taxes to all Indiana and Delaware orders.
Q. Why do you now require new customers to send in a copy of their id?
The FDA as of August 2016 has taken over control of ALL tobacco products including Cigars and Pipe Tobacco. This is now the law of the land and every retailer has to comply with the new laws.
