Default New to Hookah

Hello. I've smoked hookah a few times and am seriously considering buying my own. So, I was wanting to ask a question regarding shops carrying hookahs compared to the websites. I would buy off of a website in a heartbeat because of all the good things I've heard about the people behind the websites and helping out the community but I'm 18 and a I don't own a credit card at the moment. So I was wondering should I wait the time and take the time to get a money order out and buy from online or if I go to a local-ish tobacco shop that carries hookahs will they have a decent selection of hookahs and shisha? Also, when buying online they give you a lot of free samples and things such as tongs, coals, and shisha; do shops offer the same thing or will I have to buy a 80-90 dollar hookah and then another 20-40 on accessories?

it all depends on the shops around you, there are two places around here (chicago) that I usually get some free shit at becuase I'm always there. I would just do your homework check out the shop find a hookah or two you like get the price and check online, that way you can avoid the noob mistake I made and pay out the ass for a pos sahara smoke

depends, there isn't one standard "shop" rule. From my experience, you will get a better deal overall online. Honestly, if you are 18, it's pretty much time to get a bank account and a debit card. Most banks have a visa/mastercard logo on the card, so you can use them at all online stores. Plus, with hookah, there is a ton more stuff (shisha, accessories, etc.) online at way better prices than in your local place. I am almost positive of that.

You can go to Walmart or the like, Get a prepaid visa with what ever amount you want on it, and order online with the prepaid visa, simple as pie!

Really depends where you go to buy the hookah i guess if your buying local. Go look at smoke shops and look at the types of hookahs their selling. Im also betting they wont give you all the extra accessories you get when you buy online.

Just check out the shops in your area and see what they have. It's really the only way to find out if they are good or not. Welcome to the community, btw. Have fun. Smoke happy.
