They weren't 38.50 anywhere I went and trust me I looked. Thanks Ron
oh I should mention I bought my cigs in a duty free shop.
38.50 A CARTON AUGUST 2009
ummm... well my dad is a pilot and when he was flying with Air Tran, we would go to Puerto Rico. I'm not sure how much they cost, but I don't think you can carry them with you on the flight.
To answer your question about how much cigarettes are in Puerto Rico. I smoke Newports and I recently took a Cruise and I bought 2 cartons of Newports and it costed me $44.00 even no taxes and all the cigs there were lower than mine. And you can put them in your bags and you don't have to declare them.
On the cruise your only allowed to bring so many carton's back on the ship but I think it's 12 carton's, but the airlines dont make you declare cigarettes, however they do make you declare cigars, but I had two in my bag and just didn't say anything so...Anyway everywhere I went in the Bahamas the cigs were just as cheap, it's just the United States where they tax the shit out of everything and everyone. thanks
