Do you ship outside of the USA?
No ... currently we only ship cigars to consumers
within the USA or those with APO/FPO USA military oversea addresses. (The latter
group even receives a military discount on JR Cigar items)
We have thoroughly researched the option of shipping cigars to foreign cigar
consumers. Sadly due to the variable costs involved and more so, the myriad of
different tobacco and tax laws worldwide it really is not feasible for us to
currently ship outside the US. When we weigh the benefit versus the costs, shipping
outside the USA simply is not good for our business. For some business models it
could be great; for us, it simply is bad business.
Also, we do not send catalogs outside of the USA. In some countries it would be
regarded as an illegal solicitation since we are not authorize to export cigars
into that country.
Every year we reconsider our current policy, looking at all our options. Hopefully
one day, we will be able to provide every cigar smoker on the planet with great
cigars at a great price.
Do you sell cigarettes online?
JRCigars.com does not sell any cigarettes or
related products online in compliance with the state and federal laws and our
desire to -not- be in the online cigarette business. However, we do offer
Yes, we know other sites do so. Obviously they have a different interpetation of
the various legislations and company philosophy.
Do you sell Cuban cigars?
Nope, that would be illegal.
However, we sell a ton of cigars that are as good as any Cuban cigar. And for much,
much less ... you gotta be nuts to be spending $15 for any Cuban cigar! Check out
our Cuban alternatives to get started.
Why is jrcigars.com verifying my Age?
JRCIGARS.COM is committed to only selling their
products to adults and to protecting your identity and privacy online. As a part of
meeting that commitment, JRCIGARS.COM uses a non-affiliated third party age and
identity verification company, Veratad Technologies, LLC, to assure that customers
online are of age to purchase their products and are who they say they are.
Veratad's AgeMatchSM Age Verification services use multiple trusted data sources
containing billions of public records to return an age validation based on the
personal information submitted by you. This service is specifically designed to
validate and protect your identity while maintaining the highest level of consumer
privacy when processing online transactions.
How does Veratad's Age Verification work?
Veratad's access to public records allows them to
validate the information you provide and in some cases, depending on the nature of
your purchase, present a series of multiple choice questions based on non-credit
related ("out-of-wallet") historical facts about you as an individual. These facts
are obtained by instantaneously scanning billions of public records from trusted
data sources containing information that would not generally be found in your
wallet if lost or stolen.
Is the information I provide secure?
Absolutely. Veratad's secure 256bit encryption
technology ensures the safe delivery of the information you provide online. In
addition, Veratad DOES NOT store your sensitive personal information or share (or
sell) any data with other third parties; this practice assures you that
unauthorized parties cannot gain access to your sensitive personal information.
What happens if I cannot be verified by the Age Verification process?
Our Customer service reps will contact you and
verify your information.
I live outside of the U.S. can I be verified?
JRCIGARS.COM's use of Veratad's Age Verification is
based solely on U.S. record information and therefore verification of individuals
residing outside the U.S. is unavailable. [Military Addresses outside of the US are
