Default Let's put the Social Smoke Contest in perspective! [pics]

I just realized when I got my last round of samples yesterday just how much this contest rocked. I'd just like to thank Social Smoke and for those of you who don't know what 21 samples look like......look no further.







If I don't get to all 12 before the contest ends I'm gonna review them anyways. Again thanks to Social Smoke for sponsoring this generous contest. Everyone else post up those 21 samples, or whatever you got so far!

Wow, I really wish I could've been apart of this contest, that's a lot of free shisha, very VERY generous on their part to eat all the expenses. Unbelievably cool on their end to not only give free shisha out in exchange for video reviews, but 100g tins instead of little shots (of course even free shots would've been very generous as well). Sadly, I wasn't a member soon enough. Oh well, maybe next time.

Soon as I started here... I seen this contest and realized the opportunity I missed. Would of been nice in like 200 ways for me considering I am just starting out. O well just have to stick around and see if I can take advantage of something else down the line.

Here is a video review I did of Social Smoke Tiger's Blood. It was very random and spur of the moment, but I called up Social Smoke during the video .. put them on the spot and they handled it like pros! Great family, great product, great vendor!

Here is the video review of Social Smoke Tiger's Blood with impromptu interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibWVoxW3YQM

Thanks so much to Social Smoke for sponsoring such a great contest and allowing us to all try your new brand and flavors of shisha tobacco! Wishing you great success with everything!

Yeah, this is definitely an awesome contest! I've tried 9 flavors so far and only 2 or 3 out of them weren't almost perfect, but the rest definitely was, especially Raspberry.

Big thank you to Social Smoke for this contest, they'll definitely gain a ton of business from this contest!

Its just sad they dont reply my messages
Ive sent them about 5 messages and asked for international shipping. I gave up now and bought some Social Smoke myself. At least they could have replied my messages to let me know, they cant ship internationally, but there was not even a single line they wrote me.

If you do the math:
21 samples X 100g each= 2100g or 2.1 kilos of tobacco
Now the cost:
21 samples max X $10.95 each (retail) = $229.95+ shipping
If you add shipping \
~$10.00 each time So 21/3 each shipment= 7 shipments for $70 each contestant
Total cost for each contestant:
$299.95 or $300 for EACH contestant.
I'd say that is very generous indeed!
