First you will get them cheaper in Cuba. When you say face value I would consider that buying in Cuba.  BUT you will have to open boxes and check for quality and not all stores will let you open boxes, maybe one or two but not anywhere near to the extent our host at FOH does when grading boxes. Nobody sells at the same price if you compare to Cuba. Another thing is if buying in Cuba you would want to freeze the boxes to kill any chance of beetles. You can check prices on other sites but you will almost always pay a nice price for shipping and you will get what you get. I do not work for FOH and I can say I have never been let down. All shipping is done very discreetly. I have received every order with no problems. Will you pay a little more for a box of something with abit of age from 2016-2017, maybe. 

Great information, thanks for sharing.  seems like I'll have to try and find a mule since I'm not heading out for vacation for some time.

As someone who was extremely skeptical and  started making purchases from FOH back in September, I'd agree with @Jal154.  In truth, it took me about 4+ months just to make my first trial purchase. Value wise, I'd say they have us covered. 

FOH has never let me down and you have a good idea of what exactly you will get as they inspect all boxes which is not always the common norm. Though, I assume you can probably request that it not be opened but you'd assume the risk.

Anyhow, I recently got a box from the store with a date of 2015 which was a lovely surprise!!!  

There are many benefits dealing with FOH from 24:24, pop up deals, on-demand store and even this forum! I have not come across any other sites where you can make purchases and have discussion with other customers and community members all in the same place.

Just my 2 cents.

Also great information here, thanks.  I did read up on the 24/24 or 24/72 sticky post.  I am quite happy with open boxes as I prefer them to be inspected and graded so I at least have an idea what im receiving quality wise.

That’s the idea! Well worth it! For me, I am in South Florida. Easy trip to Cuba. I’d rather buy here than going on a mission while in Cuba. I might pick up a box there if I see something exceptional. But that’s about it. 👍🏼

Exactly. Seconds are always 🏷 “Seconds”

Oh really, that says a lot about the FOH system considering how close to Cuba you are.  Thanks for the heads up and info it is greatly appreciated.

Quick newbie question on 24:24.  Apologies if it's already been answered.  When a box is labeled as clearance, what does that mean in terms of grade? Is it safe to assume it's PE or higher?  Every box I have gotten from FOH has been amazing, just curious what that meant in terms of quality.  Thanks!

Your assumption is correct.

Hey hopefully this is the right place to post this. As far as dry boxing is concerned. Is there a reccomended humidity % and temp as well as an amount of time recdomended for the dry box??

Less than your humidor RH, at least 24hrs (24-48hrs for me), temp not much of a concern. YMMV.

I use a small sealed tupperware without any mediums of humidity. Just the sticks by themselves. At least 3 or 4 days, sometimes 1-2 weeks. Everyone seems to have their own way of doing it

If dry boxing, I put what I want to smoke in a empty wood cigar box I have. Let them sit for maybe 48 hours to a week and that’s that. No felt inside the box like you may find in the upper lid of a box of Arturo Fuentes, just a plain old wooden cigar box. Don’t over think it. You could make this post a topic in the Water Hole and I am sure you will get many more responses.

I hope this hasn’t been asked before but I tried looking all through this post’s comments as well as searching the forum in general but no luck. When the 24:24/72 is put up is the post just titled 24:24/72 or are each box for sale listed as separate posts? Also, if I want multiple boxes would it better (I.e easier on Diana) to send one email for all the boxes or separate emails for each box I want? 

 

Really enjoyed all the information I’ve found on this site so far and looking forward to participating in the next 24:24!

The thread is title "24:24" followed by the day. Susequent 24:24 threads are hidden once the day passes.

For your sanity, and more importantly Di's, send the one email listing all the boxes you want to purchase. Except on cart order days (Fri & Mon).

I read that you can look at previous 24:24’s to see what’s been offered. What’s the best way to find them? Again, I tried searching for “24:24” it got nothing.

Google archive, if you're lucky. If not, hopefully somebody has copied the details. Otherwise, you cannot see it on FOH. Only Mods and Admins have that access.
