Angry BF special a joke at hookah shisha!

This is a rant from me but they call this a black Friday special. This is more like a flee market/garage sale at most:

http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/pc/viewSpc_h.asp

if it gets me banned so be it but that's a joke for vendors to actually post so called specials to "us" the customers. that's my 2 cents, and hope that vendors come up with real deals for us to spend our money. Now if vendors don't want to provide deals to entice new and old customers then so be it. I'm sure I'll find a vendor that wants my money.

Share your thoughts and opinions!!

I kinda garee, though that Al Waha is a nice deal. Even though they don't carry the Energy Bull flavor Only AW flavor worth the time imo

Seriously though. What kind of sales for BF can hookah and tobacco dealers really have? BF is mainly for main retail stores and electronics. Atleast they are trying!

Yeah, seems like BF could be an opportunity for these stores to really win us over.

Even if they shipped a bunch of stuff and made very little profit, it could be a great opportunity to make new repeat customers. Especially since for a lot of people online is the only option for purchasing this stuff. Sell us the things we want anyway at dramatically reduced prices, let us meet their customer service and have a good experience, and we're more likely to choose them again even later when things aren't on sale. Or, more importantly, we're more likely to tell our friends about the good experience.

But it's true, at least they're trying.

Although, let me add that H-S is a great company. I've been more pleased with their customer service than any other company I've dealt with. And for that, it's still the company I'm most comfortable shopping with.

BF should be the opportunity for them to make more people like me.

After researcing this "sale" they are just advertising a majority of whats in their clerance bin, and not even discounting those any more than what they are. It is a sad offering.

However again, atleast they are offering something.

If u think that stores or vendors work or sell in the benefit of our wallets then u are sadly mistaken. If that were the case they would go out of business in no time.

Seeing as how you have an affiliate's link to H-S in your sig, I think you might be a little biased! LOL

--- Not biased at all... I would much prefer to buy from Hookahstore, or Nazar if they had cheaper shisha prices... I just go to where the iron is hot I LOVE Al Waha, so that's the reasoning why i went there... If Hookahstore had that brand and it was on sale for dirt cheap... Damn well know i would be going there and giving them my business.

--- Well the thing is, what i have been smoking is Nakhla, Romman, and Al Waha... Nakhla and Al Waha are def. my favs, and Romman is just too expensive.

I really just like it and i don't know why so many people don't fancy it also. I really am looking forwards to trying some Mizo grape, and some cinnamon from Nakhla Just got done watching a few reviews for them.

From my own experiences so far, i think i am a shisha whore... I literally have the desire to try every flavor out there and just... try it at least once... I don't want to be close minded to flavors and or brands.
(I would LOVE to smoke some SB because i never did yet, but the lack of a job and their expensive prices are kind of conflicting with one another.)

eh, h-s is one of the first if not the first when you type hookah into google,
honestly, i think the majority of their customers really know very little about hookah, so saving 3 dollars on a 3 or 4 head bowl seems like a steal to them.

They used to be the first, but the wiki page and Hookah Company overtook them a while ago. I think even South Smoke comes before them now.

Your second statement is true for the big online vendors. People from the forums make up only a small portion of their customers.

--- Possibly why they can be so fantastic with customer service. Also, why they can offer 20-25% off promotion codes.

Just read the comments in the reviews of their products:

"OMG this Starbuzz hookah smokes amazing! I loaded up a bowl with SB Code 69 and put 5 Golden Coals on it and got huge clouds! But 5 minutes later it started to taste really bad. "

"Nakhla is a horrible shisha. I gotz like no smoke 4rom it and it made me sick. Starbuzz and Romman are so much better!"

No these aren't directly off the site but a good generalization. The only reason I, and I'm sure others, still order from them is because thay have one of the biggest product selections of any vendor, especially for tobacco. If your new to hookah and looking to try lots of flavors from different brands they're a good place to look.
