I've tried to bid for items on Cigarbid and have enjoyed watching others out bid me at outrageous prices. There are some deals there, but it seems many of the customers are more than willing to over pay rather than to invest the time to search the web for a better price.
The fun is watching all this and knowing you're smoking the same cigars for less money.
I'd have to agree with the previous posts. The only way I would bid there is by finding something I liked, finding the lowest price on the web and going no higher than that price. Anything else is just a waste of time and money.
I would definitely attest to the customer service part, even though I have never bought from C-bid. It's owned by the same people as Cigars International. I deal with their wholesale division. Very good people. And they wouldn't rip you off. Unfortunately, lots of people end up ripping themselves off on Cbid when they get caught up in the action.
