Where to buy Cigs

Any recommendations in C Teguise or Arrecife where to buy Benson and Hedges

Each time I go the prices seem to be constantly changing.

I always seem to be in and out of shops looking forthe best deal. Many do not even put their prices on B&H. I only buy 8 or 12 each time for myself and my traveling companions. This trip the price varied from 18.50 to 24 euros per carton,


Is there a cash a carry that does not require you to hold a card or a place where the price is always reasonable?

Tks in advance for any replies.

8 or 12 cartons?!! Careful at customs because every so often they confiscate the lot.

You should easily get a carton for under 20E at any of the major super markets but even if you pay 24E you're saving a fortune!

I smoke "Canary Kingdom" cigs, Terry. They taste exactly like Bensons to me. (JPS would be my smoke of choice). They're just €3.95 for 200 (no, that's not a typo). Silver box with a large CK on the side. Or buy a single pack for about a euro and a half and try them first. Then you've lost nowt if you don't like them.

Thanks for the tip will give them a try.

HOw about the cash and carry's, do they all require you to have a trade card??
I walked into once by the airport once (CASH Diplo) filled up my trolley and was highly embarrassed at the till them they asked or my trade card.

Walked out empty handed and hanging head in shame lol

Have seen another within 100 yards or so of the one called CASH & CARRY, but no way i'm making the same mistake again

You're welcome terry.

Not sure about the cash & Carry shops up that way. Have only been in the one in Playa Blanca, and yes you need a trade card for that one.

Maybe someone else can help with that?

There is a cash and carry just past the one you went to...and you don't need a card and yes I think it is just called Cash and Carry...been in it.....very cheap indeed.

Thanks for the tip about Canary Kingdom, Lou smokes B&H and so it would be worth a try. One thing I do know is that it is cheaper to buy duty free in the supermarkets or plane certainly not at airport although of course it is still a massive saving to Uk
