Default Who is your favorite vendor?

So looking at the "whats in your shopping cart" thread, HJ is mentioned the most out of any vendor.

Top 5: (Not in any order)

The one with the best customer service, cheapest prices, and fastest shipping. To point at one particular vendor as "the best" depends on all those factors aligning and giving me the best bang for my buck. I will not blindly order from someone just because they come highly recommended or are the preferred favorite among members. I want what is best for me as the end consumer of goods and that changes day by day for each of the vendors you have listed.

********** has hooked me up so many times it has to be him. Whenever I have a question he either responds to my email in minutes or shoots me a phone call. I think it's awesome that a vendor will personally call you to answer some basic questions or to check up on how I liked a product. No question my favorite vendor. I've had good experience with hookahstore.com as well.

yes i understand where your coming from here. I was thinking of placing an order with saharasmoke the other day and didnt, today they had a pretty good deal if you bought 30 bucks worth you got a free vortex bowl, screen, tongs and roll of coals. so i placed a small order of things i kinda needed. everyday is something different when it comes to deals.

same with me, when i ordered my first KM from him i had simple lil questions about this and that. well he usually got back to me right away via email. one day at work he emailed me via BB and we got the order figured out before it went onto the FedEx truck. great one on one service so far.

other places have gotten back to me quick, on emails but john makes you feel like a good buddy!

I like Hookah-Shisha. I don't like the flatrate that HJ has because I tend to not buy enough to make it worth it. Hookah-Shisha is just my #1 vendor, I haven't had any problems with them and they give some good offers.

Default Re: Who is your favorite vendor?

I go for three things when looking for my vendors, I like several but :
1. Do they support HP?
2. Who has the best prices/ deals.
3. Who's closest to me so I can get my stuff quick.

I've had positive experiences with almost every vendor here at HP and they are all my favorites depending on what I need to buy and when.

John, for sure. The dude carries almost everything I am into. Usually throws in some cool freebees too. Solid products from a solid vendor. Constantly doing great sales too.

For anything he doesn't have, I go to Hookah Company for the same reasons stated above. The 15 percent discount they do on anything (no limits) and the by weight shipping rules.

1. Hookah-john.com
2. Guesshookah.com
3. Hookah-shisha.com
4. Hookahcompany.com
Those are the only ones that I have gone to and hookah shisha messed up my order way too much so It was kicked down a couple of steps. But I found Hookah John is best for customer service.

so if some random vendor donated 50% of his profits here and costs 10x more youd use them? i dont see how the top 3 arent price/selection of what you want, not screwing up orders, and customer service

A dutch vendor, where I got my first hookah, awnsers most questions in <1 hr, he sent me a free hose when mine was broke, I had to send the other back with some shipping costs, and he sent me free tobacco to cover it.
and if I order something in the morning I can expect it next day here.

Too bad his tobacco is with duties, so EUR 5,80 for 50gr Nakhla

Thats the criteria she uses, why question it Gnu? Its her perogative as to who she likes and what criteria she uses. But I do believe what she was saying is that she supports supporting vendors, that means more to her than you I guess.
