Can I select specific cigars or brands that I want to receive?
Although you cannot choose specific cigars or brands that you would like to receive, we do follow up on requests from our members to evaluate cigars or cigar makers we have not featured. A big part of being a member of The Premium Cigar of the Month Club™ is having the opportunity to try cigars and brands that you wouldn’t have access to otherwise or might not have thought to try on your own. If you find a cigar that you really like, you may reorder it in 5-cigar increments or full boxes at exceptional values.
How do I create a gift announcement?
You can create a customized gift announcement that can be either printed or emailed on a specific date during check out. You may also create a gift announcement outside of the ordering process by choosing the “Gift Announcement” button in the footer of any page on our web site.
When will my shipment arrive?
Cigar shipments will arrive the last week of the month.
When will my credit card be charged?
Please note that charges will appear on your statement from "MonthlyClubs.com".
Your card will be charged on the 2nd of the month that membership commences. If you chose to have your membership commence this month, but your order was placed after the 2nd, your card will be charged within 2 business days. Charges for memberships commencing in a future month will take place on the 2nd of the first month shipped.
Where can you ship a cigar club membership?
We can ship our cigar clubs both within the United States and abroad, including APO addresses. Please call 800-625-8238 to place an order shipped outside of the U.S. as separate charges may apply.
How will my cigar club shipment be packaged?
Your cigars are sealed in a slightly porous bag designed for shipping cigars, along with an enclosed portable humidification regulation device to ensure proper humidification levels during transit. The humidification device will continue to work for multiple weeks and can be refreshed with water. A new one is included in each shipment. They are then packed in an environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable tube which is then shrink-wrapped.
What happens if I cannot be home to receive my shipment?
Please either call us at 800-625-8238 no later than the 1st of the month to inform us if you have moved, plan to be out of town, or otherwise will not be able to accept delivery that month so that we can either re-route or reschedule your shipment.
How do you verify the age of your customers?
We use Veratad's "AgeMatch" age verification services to quickly and easily verify your age. This service uses multiple trusted data sources containing billions of public records to return an age validation based on the information you provide.

What happens if I cannot be verified by the Age Verification process?
A small percentage of shoppers may not be verifiable due to limited availability of publicly available information contained within the Age Verification databases. If this happens, we will attempt to contact you via phone, mail or email to verify your age.
