Default Free Guru Tobacco Samples?

I got a message on my YouTube account from somebody representing maharajahookah.com informing me that they were giving out free samples of their new line of shisha named "Guru." Sounds promising so I checked it out, and they've got a good amount of flavors... but they don't actually describe what most of them taste like. Like... how am I supposed to guess how Stars & Stripes tastes like? I also don't know what size they would be sending. I can't find that information.

Anyway, when I put them in my cart it does check out as $0.00. However, if you want to participate be mindful that you still have to pay shipping (something I'm not used to doing for samples thanks to Hookah Pro contests ). They say ten samples will have a $20 shipping charge, but I found that five or less samples will only be $10. I mean, that's not bad because even if they are just 50g samples, it is still only $2 a pack.

I don't know if I'll go for it yet, because I just dropped $20 on this contest and I don't have the money to keep throwing around. I just wanted to pass this deal on to all of you guys unless you were interested! Here is the link: http://www.maharajahookah.com/sales-...s/info_12.html

I ordered a hookah from them before a LONG time ago, and everything went smoothly and if I needed to, I would buy from them again, so I know this place is legit.

Checking this out..I put 10 samples in my cart and it comes out to $10 shipping to michigan. Looks promising, but how big are the samples?

I have no idea how big they are. I looked around and found no such information. :\

Like I said though, I'm 100% positive they'll be at least 50g. Hopefully more though.

That is interesting, for as long as I've known of the site they've been running the same deal on cleopatra tobacco that never really expired, you just had to pay shipping.

well... "free" samples, they will mostly be 50g, and they are in essence charging for them through shipping. last time I check, 50g didnt cost 2 bucks to ship. that said, a 50g box of af or naklha is roughly 2 bucks. and the shipping goes up 2 bucks per 50g? doesnt sound "free" to me.

that said, im not to keen on spending 10 bucks on 5 things that will most likely sit in my cabinet and collect dust :/

but if it ends up being a good moassel, sure ill take part in it :/

Exactly what I was thinking. I mean, their flavors seem promising... even though I don't know what they would taste like, so I'm hoping that they are good.

I understand paying shipping for samples to some extent... but $10 does sound kinda pricey. However, I remember when I bought a $40 22" hookah from them more than a year ago the shipping was $10 too. I remember them saying that they had a $10 flat fee for most everything, I guess including shisha which is weird. Otherwise, I know that they aren't just super-pricing the samples just to recoup money because it's the same price for everything.

However, things could have changed from last year. Or I could have just remembered wrong. :P

Every time i look at tobacco or anything hookah related. the cheapest i have seen shipping is 10 bucks, even for a 50g of af...So its just a base price for everything.

I did a checkout to see how much shipping would be to canada ($38 wat to much for my blood) either way it said the weight is 9lbs if u figure that maybe 5lbs for shipping amterial and tobacco containers... 4lb=1.8kg/10 sample=180g so ill assume they might be 200-250g samples

Thanks for doing that. I got excited when he quoted 200+ grams up there -- that would have been sooo worth it. Oh well.

I guess this wouldn't be too bad of a deal if you needed to buy other things as well. Since the shipping is a flat rate of $10, might as well get other things you need. I noticed they have a bunch of other brands of shisha, plus the usual accessories and whatnot.

I guess if I find something else on the site that I need and would be willing to pay for, then I would go for the samples.

I have talked to people at maharajahookah.com several times. Seem to be nice. They told me that there was no limit that someone from the U.S. could get as far as quantity. *! Also, when viewing your basket, before you check out, you enter "samples" in the promo code box, then click the "apply changes" button. This will remove all shipping rates! The page for samples is here --> http://www.maharajahookah.com/guru-tobacco/cat_55.html

So no limit..So I can order every single flavor (over 1kg of tobacco) for $10?

EDIT: Over 17 = $20, 17 = $17, 12-16 = $15, 1-11 = $10.

I had 4 orders sent to 4 different addresses with one of each, and 3 of what i thought i'd like. then i used "samples" as the promo code, used the apply button, and it removed shipping. i don't know how long it was supposed to last. all my orders are being "processed".

May be kinda off topic, but since we talked so much about http://www.maharajahookah.com
the person also told me that i could receive a free gift of their choice if i would rate, review, yada, yada about it on their youtube page. so i'm supposed to have something else besides these Guru samples
