Total cost for each contestant:
$299.95 or $300 for EACH contestant.
I'd say that is very generous indeed!
Actually I'd like to correct your math. The bolded portion is wrong. The samples are shipped three times. 3 cans first shipment, 6 cans second shipment, and 12 cans third shipment. That would make the shipping (ground) for the first batch $12. Don't know the second or third as they offer free shipping over $50.

Still, it is alot of money for a contest. THANKS SOCIAL SMOKE!!!

Nobody ever know when contests will be until Samb announces them. As to the join date, that's something new to the current contest. Don't know if they'll keep doing it or what.

They said they sent out over $5,000 worth of tobacco, but I don't know if that's retail, wholesale, or just production cost.

i think retail cost, tobacco is cheap to produce and wholesale prices are cheap as well. the most expensive thing is the tax. at least here in germany.

Thanks! I'm not participating so I didn't know. If you say the average cost for the three shipments is ~$13, then that's $39 that puts the cost down to $270 per person max, which is still a decent chunk of change. They said they've sent out around 5K worth of tobacco, add in the cost of all the shipping and... .

Yea putting the monetary value on the samples can really blow your mind lol I'm stoked being that so far I've only disliked 6 out of the 21 I've gotten. Now I just gotta blaze out these reviews lol.

Yup, another happy customer here. We've put up some reviews and got 6 more coming in the mail. Definitely very generous, hats off to Social Smoke, and for the Hookah Pro community for offering such an active and fantastic contest. Expect more reviews, cheers.

Default Hat's of to Social Smoke!

Just got 3rd box in, I'm just overwhelmed with the great service, great product, and great experience! Really the samples that they've sent are beyond generous (2.1 Kilos to be exact). I just really can't thank them enough. They got me a a future customer that's for sure!

A huge thank you social smoke and hookahpro! I'll be enjoying your product for quite awhile!

Too bad they don't ship to Europe afaik (which is understandable).
But it's cool a vendor can make so many smokers happy with giving free new shisha.
Thumbs up for SS!

I'll admit.. Going into this contest, I expected Social smoke to suck. But now, after trying so many flavors, I've only had one,maybe two that i did like. I've still got 11 more to try, but so far they have an A in my book. =]

Thanks so much, Social Smoke.

These guys really are the best. One of their packages from them arrived to my front door while I was away and some bung hole swiped it from me by the time I got back the next day. I messaged them to let them know what happened and told them I planned on just buying the flavors again because I had already promised them video reviews. I didn't want to ask for more free shisha because the package at my door really was my responsibility.

I got a reply the next day (today) saying that they had just shipped out another package free of charge and that this one would require a signature. =D

After this contest is over, they will definitely still be a company I will routinely buy from.

I got my third box the other day. I did a unboxing review 10/10. I haven't edited or smoked it though since I have been sick as a dog. (Even required an ER visit) but I've got some meds and hopefully I can knock this last box out asap when I am feeling better

That right there is what I call customer appreciation, hell, it's not even customer appreciation since you didn't actually buy anything.

Social Smoke has gone to my #1 spot as the go to vendor and I'll always order from them, unless of course I need something they don't have. I got my last set of samples coming in tomorrow along with a Nammor, Windcover, and some coals. Really looking forward to it. Got a garage sale tomorrow too, so I'll be lighting up as I'm trying to sell some stuff and make some money to buy some 250g Social Smoke cans.
