Thread: Any site that delivers to the US without using UPS?

    Any site that delivers to the US without using UPS?

    ****ing $36 dollars extra along with the sign bullshit is absolutely stupid. I used to get cigar on line using an ID age identifier where the they just wanted me to send a picture of my ID. Any other places do that but with snus?

    No stores sell snus to the US or within the US without using UPS as the courier. This is due to the PACT Act, which requires all tobacco shipped in the US to be shipped via a carrier that verifies age. This is something the stores don't have any control over.

    On the subject of shipping cost, if you buy in bulk it really isn't an issue. I buy 40 cans every 2 months, and with shipping included I get my snus for around 4.00-4.50 USD per can. For comparison - General Snus sold locally in Arkansas is anywhere from 5.00 USD - 7.00 USD per can. So even with shipping, buying online is cheaper than buying locally, and still cheaper than smoking.

    Right, one needs to order in volume to get the cost per tin down.......... I see that the price of cigs has gone up some since I quit, much faster than the rise in price of snus.....

    I already messaged two swedish suppliers to use the same method cigars international use which is a data base that saves your photo ID. I hope they acknowledge this which will make usps possible.

    It's illegal for them to do ship via USPS as they do not age verify on delivery. The PACT Act requires that tobacco shipment to the US must verify age upon delivery by checking ID, and getting a signature.

    If a store agrees to do this, please do not share their name here, or any further information about this. Discussing violating the law could potentially make it harder for people in the US to get snus if the government found out about this.

    The members of snuson have a collective mind.

    Although a bit twisted......
    I lost my change deep in the couch

    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......


    I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.
