Shipping Methods and Timetables

When you are ready to check out, you can choose from any of the available shipping methods for the items you are buying. Whether they be from FedEx, UPS or USPS will depend on the items purchased. Certain products are limited to shipping by the US Postal Service as they will be shipping from our Yuma AZ shipping outlet that does not currently use UPS or FedEx.

Our products are shipped by either FedEx, UPS or USPS from our various US warehouses, so shipping times may vary slightly. Orders received before 1 pm Eastern will usually ship out the same day, later than 1 pm Eastern and they will usually ship out the next business day. While we do our best to ship according to the above schedules, sometimes we are so busy we can not get all orders processed in one day so the above should be taken as a guideline only.

In most cases Priority Mail will arrive in 2 to 4 days, UPS Ground shipping will arrive in 3 to 7 days and UPS Air shipping will arrive in 2 to 4 days. FedEx, UPS and the US Postal Service do not count holidays, weekends or the day of pick up, as a shipping day. It is counted the next business day after the pick-up.

We send the tracking number for your order to the Email address in the "Bill To" section of our shopping cart once it has shipped so you will know when to expect your order. These usually go out in the evening or the following morning after your order has shipped. Be sure to print your receipt for your records as we do not always include a copy of your bill with the package.

As part of our age verification process, all first time customers are required to provide an adult signature before their order will be delivered by the applicable delivery service.

ALL orders valued at $200.00 or more will be required to provide a signature at time of delivery. If no one is available to sign for your package, we suggest shipping to your office or place of business or perhaps a neighbor.

Note: UPS does not deliver to P.O. Box, or Military Addresses (APO, FPO etc.). Orders to these addresses will be shipped via the US Postal Service.

UPS and USPS Shipping Rates:
Shipping fees are based on the weight of the package, where it is shipping from and where it is shipping to. Our website connects directly to UPS and USPS during the checkout process to give you the most up to date and accurate rates possible.

International Shipping

When ordering from outside the USA, you will be considered the Importer of Record and a Commercial Invoice will be included with your order clearly stating the contents and full value of the order. Any import duties or taxes levied on your package will be your responsibility. We can not predict what these charges may be. Contact your local customs office for further information. You can use the World Customs Organization web site to find your local customs office http://www.wcoomd.org/customwebsites.

Shipping charges for international shipments are calculated based on the weight of the product. The actual charges are displayed to you during the check out process when you choose the method of shipment.

Prices and shipping fees do not include import duties, VAT or tariffs; these are the responsibility of the recipient and are usually collected upon delivery. We include a copy of your invoice with all international shipments, so be sure to check with your local customs office to find out the duties and taxes you may have to pay before you place an order.

All international shipments are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
Any orders that are refused delivery and are returned to us by the carrier will not be refunded shipping charges and are subject to a 20% restocking fee (and any return shipping fees if applicable) provided they are received within 3 weeks of the original shipping date and are still fresh and in resellable condition.

Any cigars returned to us that have become dried out due to lengthy transit times will not be refunded.
Check with your local Customs office before placing any order to be shipped outside of the USA as you run the risk of losing your money if you refuse delivery and they are returned to us dried out and stale.

Payment Methods

The Cigar Hut offers you several payment options. You can choose any of the following methods during the checkout process.

Secure Online Credit Card Transaction
The Cigar Hut accepts American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club and Discover/Novus payments through our online credit card processor InternetSecure. Orders using this method will be shipped the same or next business day.

Returns and Refunds

The Cigar Hut guarantees every product we sell (except for Seconds and Clearance Items) and will gladly replace or refund any defective item returned in its original packaging within 10 days (minus shipping charges), only if a Return Authorization Number has been issued and is clearly written on the returned package. Items returned without a valid Return Authorization Number are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Cancelled orders are subject to a $6.00 Service Fee.

If you are not satisfied with the condition of the cigars, and you have not smoked more than 2 (out of a box of 20 or more), then we will accept the return and issue you a full credit. If you have smoked more than 2, then we will only issue a pro-rated credit, per stick. Returns for cigars will only be accepted with original cellophane sleeves, tubes, or other "individual" packaging still intact. Please note that Clearance Items and Cigar Seconds are not covered by this policy and because taste is such a personal thing, we will not accept returns for cigars that you just don't like the flavor of and that have no quality issues.

In the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with the condition or freshness of any of our cigars or if you receive damaged merchandise, simply contact us, and we will give you full return instructions. Depending on the situation, we may issue a store credit in the form of a Gift Certificate, refund your credit card or simply replace your order.

All our cigars are stored in climate controlled conditions with a relative humidity of 70-75% to ensure quality and freshness.

Should your item be sold out before the change is posted to the website, we'll let you know, and offer you the choice of remaining on backorder, changing your order, or receiving a full refund. (We update our online inventory almost every day.)

About Us

The Cigar Hut was founded in 1999 and went online in February of the same year. Since it's inception, we have been providing our customers with exceptional quality products at prices well below retail.

This is accomplished by having our wholesalers ship directly to you, the customer. This enables us to keep down our overhead costs and pass the savings on to you. With a variety of suppliers, we are able to have the products we offer in stock and ready to ship.

Some orders may be shipped in multiple packages as one warehouse may not have all the products in your order. Extra shipping charges may apply for multiple shipments, but you will be notified during the check out process if any do apply.


We do our best to keep this site as up to date as possible. We are in constant touch with our suppliers and update the site on a regular, if not daily basis.

Should you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact me directly at the Administration Dept.

Sincerely:
Jim Bullen - President, The Cigar Hut
