Shipping and Return Policy

We offer the following carriers: UPS and USPS.  FedEx offers non-tobacco shipments only.  Orders placed Friday after 3pm and on the weekend will be shipped the following business day. We reserve the right to limit amounts and quantities of any order.

Most orders are shipped via Standard Shipping within two business days of receipt. Please note we do not deliver on the weekends.  Shipping and Handling cost is based on the total weight of the order.  


For all orders shipped within the State of Florida, Bennington Tobacconist, Inc. is required by LAW to collect FL State Sales Tax of 7% on the TOTAL value of the order, excluding shipping cost.  We do not charge tax when shipping outside the State of Florida.  Outside the state of Florida including foreign countries, the purchaser is responsible for remitting any additional taxes to the appropriate taxing authority.

While we do our best to ensure that we have sufficient stock on all of our items, on rare occasions we may run out of stock. If we do run out of stock on a particular item you’ve ordered, we will ship any in-stock items in your order immediately and then notify you via e-mail regarding which items are backordered. We will then ship these backordered items at no additional cost as soon as possible in order to complete your order.  Backorders may take up to 10 business days or more to be completed.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please call Customer Service 1-800-237-5074 Monday through Friday 11AM to 8PM EST within 30 days of your purchase to request an exchange, credit or refund. We will refund it for full credit excluding shipping cost. After 30 days, returns will NOT be accepted.

We are happy to reimburse you in full if you have smoked one or two cigars from a box or bundle of 20 or more (less shipping). On boxes or bundles of 10-15 cigars - a full credit will be issued for cigars if 1 or less have been consumed (less shipping). Otherwise, if you’ve smoked more than what the guideline states, your refund will be pro-rated based on the number of cigars smoked.

We would appreciate receiving the returned cigars in the condition you received them – as they may be returned to the cigar manufacturer if the cigars are in fact defective or unsmokable. We reserve the right to issue partial credit or no credit for cigars not returned in satisfactory condition. If returns are received in less than adequate condition, our Returns Department reserves the right to refuse the package and/or deny or pro-rate your credit accordingly.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

Please note that No returns will be accepted without prior authorization. Several types of goods are exempt from being returned such as hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases and gift cards.

We will gladly refund original shipping under the following situations:
- You have received defective merchandise.
- Wrong item(s) were shipped due to our error.
- Your cigars were damaged in transit.

In the cases above, we will also pay the shipping on your replacement – using the carrier of our choice.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.
