Oct Is 20% Off Month At P&Cs

Post by Goose55 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 9:49 am

Thought I would remind folk about October being 20% off all month long, at P&Cs, on orders over $100

Do they tell you what month they'll ship your order in?

It has been a problem with them lately. Maybe they are keeping their inventory low, in hopes of selling out or something?

I had ordered a pound of McClelland 2015 Virginia Perique a while back and after two months of waiting decided to buy it from Smoking Pipes. So, it wasn't a problem of McClelland not having the blend, otherwise Smoking PIpes would have been out of stock as well, with such a popular tobacco.

They have a weird system. I've never had a bad experience and am not knocking them, but they typically don't have what I'm looking for when I'm looking for it. Then again, I don't cellar, either. I work on a just in time inventory system.

Another odd P&C characteristic--backordered popular products often.

Currently no Trout Stream.

Earlier in the year, no Stokkebye Luxury bulk (however, they did make this up to me later).

Beyond. I am simply not willing to pay you today in order to receive a hamburger on some putative Tuesday.

Besides the new computer system issue they had around IPS day, I always get my orders within a few days. And even then, they sent me a gift certificate code for $50 of merch. Can't complain there.

Sure. Or do you mean this particular Christmas.

I just ordered some cigars, pipe tobac, and supplies.

Got my order promptly.

P&C said that they were getting the system back under control. Looking good now.

My last order was when they did 15% off bulk. I got the order in 5 days and it was correct and fresh. I have had good luck with them other than the IPS mess.

I've never had a problem. They've just always been out of what I wanted when I wanted them.

I actually got in on a special over the weekend. If you ordered over $150 worth of merchandise, you got 27% off. I got a pretty good deal on 1 lb. each of McClelland 2015 & Mac Baren Dark Fired as well as 7 tins of Escudo. The McClelland and Escudo are backorder. The Mac Baren is on its way here. First time to have something b/o from them. We’ll see what happens.

As did I.

But oddly, the offer of free shipping on orders over $79 was rescinded. I was charged $3.99 for shipping on a $116 order (after discounts). Given the size of the discounts, I was fine with paying it - but this is one very strange way to do business.

McCl 2015 has been back-ordered at P&Cs for months. All other outlets have had it in stock, and continue to have it in stock.
