The EA Carey Pipe Tobacco Club

Tobacco 2

The Tobacco Club is a very simple concept – we believe that most tobacco pipe smokers know what they like to smoke and how much tobacco they tend to use.  Carey’s Tobacco Club ensures that they always have the blends they like whenever desired, whilst saving money at the same time. (To find out more about our pipe tobaccos and how they stack up against some of the bigger brands out there, read this).

Membership of this exclusive Club has grown by invitation, with customers keen to take advantage of the numerous benefits it offers.  At a time when the demise of the local pipe shop or tobacconist is well documented, you will be pleased to know that we can provide a service and choice when it comes to pipe tobaccos that is second to none.

The benefit for us is that we’re able to predict how much pipe tobacco we will sell at any particular time, and thereby order more efficiently from our suppliers – the largest and most respected in the world.  And this allows us to offer the following member benefits:

    • Discounted pricing on Tobacco Club pipe tobaccos for the life of your Membership
    • Introductory ‘6 pouches for the price of 5’ Special Offer and FREE Day Pouch worth £17.95 delivered with your 4th regular shipment
    • Deliveries direct to your door, in an amount and frequency defined by you to suit your requirements
    • Once up and running as a Tobacco Club Member you may add further, commonly used products to your regular tobacco shipment such as pipe filters, pipe cleaners, Carey Boutique Tobaccos, smokeless products and even certain hand made cigars
    • Flexible – make changes if your habits change – and FREE
    • Guaranteed freshness and quality
    • 10% discount on all other, non-tobacco purchases from Carey’s Pipe & Tobacco Shop
    • FREE standard p&p on all additional website and catalogue orders over £100 in value

Don’t just take our word for it either!

“Hi all at Carey’s – Just a thank you for sending me a free tobacco pouch, and to thank you for sending me my regular supply of tobacco, ‘Carey’s Bruno Special’. I like this very much. At least I’ll never run out of tobacco now, and to wish you all a very happy new year.  Kind regards, AB” (21/1/2014)

    I used to be in the tobacco club

  2. avatar michael ingham says:

    i am thinking of joining the tabbaco club and wondered if when i get my shipment through i can pay and send you a cheque later,as i’ve tried some of the brands and like them
    yours mick ingham

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Mick – thanks for your enquiry and I’m pleased to hear you both like our blends and as a result are now considering joining our Club. Unfortunately however we are no longer able to accept payment on invoice by cheque simply because of the constant uncertainty surrounding the future of cheques. As a result our preferred options are either by a credit card which is securely lodged by us according to all the necessary cyber security protections, or by direct debit/bank transfer. Hopefully one of these methods will work for you… Happy puffing!

  3. avatar Paul Ironmonger says:

    I’ve just sent in my first, of many to come orders and would like to join the tobacco club. Not sure how to proceed.
    Kind regards

    • avatar Jenny says:

      Hi Paul – please call Jenny on 01481 811740 and she can enrol you into the Tobacco Club over the phone.

    Hello everyone. I have just started pipe smoking again I used to smoke a pipe and gave it up. now I have started again and I noticed when I was on carrys website there was a tobacco club. I am very keen to join as I would like to try as many good tobbaccos as I can. this club seems to offer this. also I am looking for the best advise from others that have tried certain pipes and tobaccos. From DAVID GIBSON.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi David. First of all, welcome back! I will pass your details on and someone will be in touch regarding the Club. It is a great way to enjoy Carey tobaccos at great prices, and as you will see the benefits extend to product discounts and free postage on certain additional orders also. The best thing to do initially would be to try one or both of our samplers to see which of our blends you prefer, and then set up a regular Club shipment of your favourites. Jenny will be able to help you set that up… All the best!

  5. avatar Billy Gunn says:

    To everyone at Careys especially Jenny,

    I just wanted to say hello and a massive thank you! One great thing about Pipe smoking is the choice, Pipes, Tobaccos, tools and so on.

    Gone are the local tobacconist, with all that knowledge, love and understanding. It’s true now in this age of internet, there are videos, forums and advice around from fellow smokers. They are great but sometimes you just need that personal touch, an experienced recommendation.

    Until a fortnight ago I was drifting looking for affordable, quality tobacco and I had lots of questions and problems…

    Then I found Careys! I feel like I’ve known you for ages like a local tobacconist. All my questions were answered. I’ve emailed and spoken to Jenny a few times now and since, I’m fully enjoying my pipe again!!

    I’ve just joined the Tobacco Club and looking forward to receiving my membership details and first order!

    But most of all I think I’ve found my new home. The site feels like waking into that shop. All that’s missing is the aroma and that light cloud of Pipe smoke in the air!

    Thanks everyone

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Thanks Billy – that’s great to hear! Your comments are music to our ears as what you describe is exactly what we are trying to provide – a home from home for pipe smokers. Having been in the business for 40 odd years we like to think we are well placed to offer advice and make recommendations and I’m pleased that you have found this side of things useful. And if you ever feel we come up short in any department please be sure to let us know as that’s the best way for us to evolve and improve… Happy puffing!

  6. avatar Janice Toyne says:

    The pipe I chose for my husband at Christmas was a success as was the selection of tobacco, thankyou so much!

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Thanks for your comments Mrs Toyne – we’re delighted your husband was pleased with the pipe (the Beehive I believe?) and the Aromatic Tobaccos. All the best…

  7. avatar Andy B says:

    Just received my third order and my new “free of charge” tobacco pouch; really chuffed :-)

  8. avatar Andy B says:

    I joined the tobacco club on Monday and received my first shipment on Wednesday, great service. Never run out of tobacco again :-)

    • avatar Marcus says:

      I’m pleased you’re happy Andy – we are also now offering members the ability to add other consumable products to their regular order such as filters, pipe cleaners and even our boutique tobaccos…

  9. avatar Dr Marcel Blaise says:

    I am pleased with the speed of your service, very impressed by the’ magic inch’ and your splendid ‘Balkan Mix’ which reminds me so much of the Balkan Sobranie which I used to buy in tins. I am disappointed in the Lucky Dip pipe I received which seems expensive at the price! You will nevertheless retain my custom. Kind regards.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Thanks for your kind comments about our pipe and tobacco, however I am sorry you are less impressed by the Lucky Dip pipe. I would like to think this is partly as a result of comparison with the Magic Inch pipe you bought! Feel free to return it and providing it is unsmoked we will refund you for that pipe, no problem. Best Regards…

  10. avatar Brian says:

    Can you tell me if replacement stems are available please? I am concerned as I have been known to either bite too hard or otherwise damage one.

    The question relates to your Magic Inch pipes.

    Thank you.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Brian. We do have replacement Magic Inch stems so there’s no problem there, but we also sell the Soft Bite Stem Grips for exactly the issues you raise. It may be worth trying these and at £3.45 for 4 they won’t break the bank!

  11. avatar Brian says:

    I am considering returning to a pipe after a break of some years.

    I am considering a 10 min 1/4 bent , I assume the 1/4 bent refers to a bend in the stem. I would prefer a straight stem. Do you offer a 10min straight stem, please?

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Brian. 1/4 bent does indeed refer to the bend in the stem. It is a very mild bend and simply takes the bowl away from the upper lip/nose a fraction in what is a small pipe. If you were adamant about a straight stemmed pipe I would suggest a Milano Straight Billiard instead – slightly larger thereby accomodating a straight stem more easily. I hope that helps…

  12. avatar Jonathan Taylor says:

    Hello there, I have been thinking about smoking a pipe for a few year now, and wondered what is the best way to start? Like what tobacco? What pipe to use? I wait for your advise thanks.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Jonathan – thanks for your interest in pipe smoking. One of my colleagues will contact you directly to discuss…

  13. avatar eleanor jean jackson says:

    looking for a different pipe for my brother

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Eleanor – if you could let us know what your brother currently smokes and the kind of thing you think he might like, we’ll do our best to give you some alternatives. Thanks.

  14. avatar Angus says:

    I’m a keen smoker, of cigarettes usually, but I have a wee pipe as a contingency for when I run out of cigarettes, but that isn’t feasible any more because I’ve lost my pipe… Lol! I’m looking to get a new one, I’m an amateur pipe smoker with very limited experience, can anyone recommend a pipe for me? I like full curve pipes… I’ve been looking at the vauen connexion full bent pipe, any thoughts? And thanks in advance for any assistance! XD

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Ahhh, the million $$ question. A lot will come down to factors such as whether you want a filtered or unfiltered pipe, the size you require (do you like a long, leisurely smoke or what we call a 10-minuter) and of course budget. If you consider yourself new to pipe smoking, a starter kit may be the best bet. But what you can be certain of with a Carey pipe is that it is made from quality, Mediterranean briar which is important for the quality of smoke. Good luck!

  15. avatar Angus says:

    How do I join the tobacco club?

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Angus – to receive a membership pack or just to talk through the options please call 01481 811740 or email with your postal address. We look forward to welcoming you to the Club!

  16. avatar David Houston says:

    I have just recieved my first order from the Tobacco club and as I am not a heavy smoker, I feel that the next order is too soon. Therefor please alter the frequency of delivery to 6 weeks, until I can see a pattern.

    • avatar Jenny says:

      Hi Mr Houston, The Tobacco Club is very flexible and you can alter the frequency and/or quantities of your shipment whenever you wish. Just contact us and we’ll do the rest. Kind regards, Jenny

  17. avatar Bill says:

    Marcus, greetings. I have just taken delivery of a Carey’s Meerschaum which I am running in at the moment, I am absolutely amazed, this morning I opened my first pouch of Carey’s Bruno Special to try out in the new pipe, and the combination just goes on and on and on. I have had well over half an hour out of that combination, with the bowl running cool. The pipe itself is very smooth. Many thanks.

  18. avatar Bill says:

    Marcus thanks, I have just read your comments, indeed what I discovered this weekend reflects on your comments. A pipe now lasts around half an hour, compared with 10 – 12 minutes in the past, also, no more tongue bite as a result.

  19. avatar Bill says:

    I have read your instructions on how to load a pipe, and I must say that it has made a tremendous difference. The pipe no longer needs to be lit time after time, but I am still having problems with a hot bowl occassionally. I think that I will smoke the pipe over a longer period. And I have just ordered my second Carey pipe.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      That’s great to hear Bill, thanks. Regarding the hot pipe, smoking more slowly over a longer period should help but also you may find that as the cake builds up in the bowl the pipe will smoke cooler as this acts as a form of insulation…

  20. avatar Bill says:

    I have just taken up pipe smoking after a number of years of rolling tobacco. I must say pipe smoking is much more relaxing, I am thoroughly enjoying the experience. I, of course have purchased my first Carey pipe, and a range of their tobaccos to try out which I haven’t got through yet, but my favourite at the moment is Black Aromatic.

  21. avatar Fiona Hamilton says:

    Dear Sir,

    I was wondering if you could tell me when and if there will be a special pipe available which you normally have on the front cover of your christmas magazine. I would like to purchase this for my son as I have in recent years. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Fiona Hamilton.

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi Fiona – thank you for your enquiry. Our next catalogue is due for release in the next couple of weeks and although we have a few new ranges none are a Limited Edition. However our next Limited Edition – a Meerschaum pipe commemorating the centenary of the Scott/Amundsen Antarctic Race – is in production as we speak and should be available early in the New Year. They will as always be strictly limited numbers so please let me know if you would like me to find out more precise dates and I can reserve one for you if you wish…?

  22. avatar S Anderson says:

    I am a newcomer to pipe smoking and see adverts for 9mm filters I wondered where in the pipe are they fitted and how do you insert them and remove them

    • avatar Marcus says:

      Hi there. The filters are small cylindrical tubes with charcoal inside (although other types such as balsa are available). They fit in the part of the pipe that joins the bowl to the stem, known as the shank. They are easily replaced – simply remove the mouthpiece, slide the used one out and replace before refitting the stem. Some people replace after every smoke, others retain them for longer… hope that helps.

    • avatar S Anderson says:

      Thanks Marcus but my pipe has a metal insert that fits into the stem do I take this out and insert the filter

    • avatar Marcus says:

      OK, well that means your pipe is not compatible with a 9mm filter. There are many different filtration systems available and a metal insert is a different system, designed to cool and condense the smoke as it passes through. To use a 9mm system you would need to buy a compatible pipe. A low cost option would be our Little Gem range (click although these are small capacity pipes. It would at least allow you to try the 9mm system.

    I have been a member of the Tobacco Club for many years and have purchased pipes with the aid of the vouchers you recieve. Is there a way you can order on line with vouchers, rather than having to do “origami” and send them by post Like the website.

    • avatar Garrick says:

      Thanks Robert, we are in the process of reviewing Tobacco Club benefits and how best to offer discounts to our members online and as soon as we have any news we will let you know. Thanks for your comments they are very useful.

  27. avatar ALAN JOHNSON says:

    I have purchased pipes from Careys for some years, enjoy them. I like to vary the Tobacco which I smoke, having for many years purchased and used Balkan Sobranie.
    I travel regularly to The Gambia and bring back fresh tobacco from there which I like to mix with others.
    I would like to discover a source of latakia to mix with this but find this difficult to obtain.
    Can you guide me please.

    • avatar Garrick says:

      Hi Alan, I am glad you enjoy smoking Carey pipes and would be interested in knowing which is your favourite. With regards your question on sourcing latakia our Balkan Special blend contains this along with Virginia and Oriental tobaccos, according to our supplier’s tasting notes, giving it a smokey and spicy flavour. If you have not tried it then perhpas you may like to. Meanwhile, some of our other customers might be able to point you in the right direction. Thanks for your comment, I will post it on our Twitter page too and let you know if there is any other response, meanwhile it’s over to them!
