Is My Monthly Cigars Worth Joining?
That's the big question! That's also the question you should be asking yourself when considering joining any cigar of the month club.
The nice part about My Monthly Cigars is that it truly is A Cigar Club For Everyone. From new cigar smokers all the way to experienced cigar smokers, each month MMC brings something of value in some way shape or form.
Value of course can be measured in multiple ways. My Monthly Cigars aims to bring value in the areas of the introduction to the cigar community for new smokers, education and palate development to the novice smokers, and awareness of different brands to the experienced smokers.
The best part about all of this is that you can do this from the comfort and privacy of your own home!
Of course one of the key values to look at with any cigar of the month club is cost. After all, the education and awareness is great, but you want to make sure your hard earned money isn't just disappearing.
My Monthly Cigars is now in its 4th year as a club which gives us 3 years of data to review in order to help you see the true value from a dollars perspective.
This is a great place to start when it comes to the value of My Monthly Cigars.
Our Robusto Box (4 cigars a month) and El Presidente Box (8 cigars a month) offer an MSRP Guarantee. This means that the MSRP value of the cigars (in other words, what you'd pay if you went to a lounge) will meet or exceed the cost of the subscription.
So right away you know that each month you're going to get more than you're paying for!
We can talk all day long about the value and MSRP, but let's take a look at some actual data of the value that MMC members have been receiving for the past three years.
So you're basically getting better than a $10 cigar for free every month in the Robusto Box!
When it comes to the El Presidente Box, you're already getting a discount on 8 cigars, but on top of those 8 cigars you're also getting an average of over $33 worth of cigars per month!
THIS IS VALUE! And on top of that, we aren't even taking into account the many months we've thrown in an extra cigar as a bonus or the fact that you can get multiple months at once for a discounted price!
How are the MSRP's determined?
MMC doesn't just make up these numbers out of thin air. These MSRP's come directly from the manufacturers and brands. They are the ones who set them and these are the prices you would pay in a lounge.
Trust us, you'll hear some clubs say things like "this is $60 of value" except when you actually go past the fluff and marketing/hype, you see that the value isn't even close to the claim. We've heard it before, and we know you have too. This is why we tell everyone to do their homework and look past the fancy marketing tactics!
"I can get these cigars cheaper online."
This is an argument we hear all the time. In reality, this person is not meant for a club because they don't see the benefit and purpose of the club, especially MMC. And you know what? That's perfectly fine!
While the argument is not completely incorrect, it's definitely not true either.
What do we mean? Well, yes, you can get cigars at a lower price per cigar when you purchase them in bulk (i.e 5 packs, 10 packs, boxes, bundles, etc).
However, let's say you purchase a box of 20 cigars for $200 and after you try the first cigar, you hate it. Now what? You're stuck with 19 cigars you don't even like and you've lost at least $190 just to "try" the cigar!
With MMC, you'll be able to know if you like that cigar so you can have confidence in knowing you're spending your hard earned money on something you're going to enjoy. Even though we like a good craps table, taking up precious humidor space with cigars we don't like is not something we want to gamble with!
At the end of the day the choice of which club to join is obviously entirely up to you. There are plenty of clubs that fit all types of cigar smokers which is fantastic for the industry.
At My Monthly Cigars we strive to cater to all levels of cigars lovers from beginners to experienced smokers. We also aim to provide members with cigars that they have access to after smoking the ones from the monthly box.
A rare cigar is great. But what happens when you're done smoking it and you want to get more but now you can't because there's none left?
We want to help create a domino effect that helps multiple levels of the industry.
Here's how that would potentially work:
A member finds a cigar in the box they like and they're able to get it again. WIN.
Then that member goes into a lounge asking for the cigar. Let's say the member buys the cigar at the lounge. WIN for the lounge AND member.
Let's say the lounge doesn't carry that cigar, now they make the lounge aware of a new cigar they could potentially carry and sell. WIN for the lounge, the member, AND the brand/manufacturer.
We are huge proponents of supporting lounges and shops and encourage our members to do the same. This is because it benefits the entire industry.
So if you're looking to experience quality premium handmade cigars every month in the comfort of your own home, at a price point that guarantees you're not wasting your money, then My Monthly Cigars is the club for you.
