Most people buying duty free Cuban cigars for their own personal use will almost certainly be interested in any offer enabling them to buy their cigars from a wholesale Cuban cigar store. The reason for this is quite straightforward – buying at wholesale prices will cost you less than buying at the normal retail prices, such as you’d find in a High Street cigar store.
Buying Cuban cigars wholesale
Buying Cuban cigars wholesale you might be buying directly from the cigar manufacturer or possibly a specialist cigar merchant. As they do not have expensive High Street stores to maintain they can offer you a price considerably below the normal retail price that you might expect to pay. There is, however, a consideration to take into account; in that cigar wholesalers will expect you to make a purchase worth several hundred dollars at least – in order to meet their economies of scale. Or, put another way, it is not worth the wholesalers time to sell and dispatch an order for 5 Double Corona’s, but a box of 25 or more – may well be worth it for them. So, the key thing to remember here is if you want to buy Cuban cigars at wholesale prices – be prepared to place a large order. This will, of course, mean that you will take delivery of enough cigars to last you for some time, so it’s important to have a cigar humidor big enough to store them in; in order to keep them in peak condition for when you want to smoke and share them.
Wholesale Cuban cigar prices
As an example, at retail prices you can expect to pay up to $20 for a single top quality Royal Coronas, or approaching $500 for a box of 25; regardless of whether you’re visiting a High Street cigar store or an online retail cigar store. However, as a guideline, at an online wholesale cigar store that price could easily drop to $200 – making a significant saving for you by bringing the cost of an individual Royal Corona below $10 each! How do they do it? Well there are several ways that a wholesaler can make their prices incredibly competitive for you – without compromising either the quality of the product or their service to you.
One way is that the wholesaler will either also be the manufacturer or will at least be trading directly with the manufacturer; meaning a lot of ‘middle-men’ get cut out. This decreases the number of people that are looking to make a profit on any of the cigar trading that is done. Secondly, by trading directly out of the ‘country of origin’, transport and import/export duties are also kept to an absolute minimum – if not totally avoided. Obviously the lower the taxes on the goods can be kept – the lower the cost that you can buy them at. Also, you can expect the price you pay per cigar to drop even more according the size of your order. It wouldn’t be unfeasible for the price of each Royal Corona to drop to about $5 each were you to place an order for several hundred.
Reasons to buy Cuban cigars wholesale
You might think initially it’s difficult to justify buying Cuban cigars in boxes of at least 25 or up to say 100. However, if you do smoke quality cigars such as these then you’ll probably have friends who are also cigar smokers, even if only occasional cigar smokers. So, having made a bulk cigar purchase through the wholesaler – why not use some of them as gifts for your friends and relatives? Also, don’t forget that buying some of the rarer and more expensive cigars can be seen as an investment. For the top-class Cuban hand-rolled cigars only a certain number are manufactured in a year and the quality of the cigar can be shaped by the age of the tobacco leaves used to make them. Subsequently whilst you might be able to purchase a box of 25 Churchill Cigars made this year for say $500, to buy a box of 25 dating from the 1980s would more than likely cost you at least $1500 now.
