Whew...this P&C blowout was good for my soul...glad to see I'm not the only that has been screwed by them...joy in shared misery?
YES!!Is now a good time to bring up the paracord bracelet and the coffee?
Their lawyers told them the deeming rules sad they could no longer offer the products for sale.What do y'all think about P&C converting some house blends over to "blend at home" kits, where they send you the ingredients and you get out the salad bowl and tongs to create your 8 oz of Butternut Burley (or whatever)?
I am of two minds: it's not much trouble to mix up, so why not, if I still want to buy that blend? OTOH, I wish they'd either go to the trouble to still be able to offer the finished blend, or just list the recipe for the blend and let me place the ingredients in the cart. They don't need to tell me where they got each tobacco.
I also imagine this kit approach doesn't work for blends where there is casing or topping applied after the individual tobaccos are mixed, unless they are going to include a "flavor packet", like ramen noodle boxes.
My grandfather mentioned this to me several times when I was growing up in the 70s. He did not like margarine - butter or nothing.This reminds me of when the Dairy Council prohibited oleo (artificial butter) from having food dye added to try and discourage competition. It was shipped white, but with a food dye pill that you'd add and mix together with the oleo to make it a more appetizing yellow color.
I actually ended up getting my coffee and tobacco that I didn’t order. About a month after I placed the initial order.YES!!View attachment 102296
I received this coffee and some tobacco at the same time the debacle was going down. I hadn’t ordered either.
I offered it to @WalkinStick but he was already chapped.
And way to go Bannard - taking a perfectly lovely P&C bash and turn it into something we have to think about.
What are you, a teacher?
It is , turns out the guy is not going crazy over it, but still embarrassing for me because i feel responsible for the unwelcome inundation. I don’t even know how they got his name. Who knows maybe he saw something he liked and snuck an order inAs frustrating as that sounds, that’s hilarious.
Thats funny. I finally got tired of the unsolicited cigarsinternational catalog I received in the mail every month from them and called to have my name taken off the mailing list. Normally I'd rather stick a fork in my eye than call any company's automated hotline but given how I already get a little eye roll from the Mrs. every time a new package arrives, the monthly catalog just sort adds that much more irritation to the mix.I’ve had bad customer service experience with SP as well but generally speaking they do great and even though SC is further away than PA somehow their stuff gets to me faster. After the IPSD thing a few years ago I stopped ordering from P&C unless I had to or the price was just outrageously low (which does not seem to happen much anymore though they used to have some crazy deals before then). The number one thing that made me stop ordering from them is their catalog. I was living at a place that shared an address with another guy and I wanted to stop receiving the catalogs because I knew it would annoy the other guy who got the Mail (it was a business address and the catalogs went to the office and he was a non smoker and you know how those people can be). I politely emailed them, then still got a catalog . Then I wrote to them and said please don’t send any catalogs to this address anymore. Still got them (by now I’m getting p&c plus all the cigar catalogs they make). Then I cut out the address and customer number from the catalog page and sent it back to them and said take this customer info out of your records and I removed that address from my online account. Still got them. Then I MOVED and did a usps change of address and everything. So my wife is on the phone with the secretary from that business the other day and they said not only are they receiving those catalogs, they are now addressed to the guy instead of me!
