I have been smoking Marlboro Cigarettes for 14 years and the last month all the packs of Marlboro Smooths and Menthol lights in 100's have been bad. The cigarettes have been going out in the middle of smoking them for no reason. Pluse the cherry is falling off of the cigarette in the middle of smoking it. I have never had this problem before it is very weird. This is very annoying and has burnt wholes in closes and my couch. This is happening to the packs my husband has been purchaseing also. You just sit there holding the cigarette and the next thing you know the cherry has fallen off and is on the cough or burning your pants. Plus the whole go to take a drag off the cigarette and nothing cause it has gone out while you are sitting there holding it. Is there something that can be done to stop this why is it happening. I don't want to change cigarette's but if this keeps happening i may have to try something different cause it is costing me money very annoying.

    I smoke Marlboro Red Label 100's and my husband smokes Marlboro Black Label Kings and we both are having the same issues. I have smoked a variety of Marlboros and have found that all of them have these issues. The 3 main issues we have are:

    1.) The Cherry always falls off near the end of the cigarette and sometimes even the middle.

    2.) The cigarette randomly goes out for no reason.

    3.) There have been sticks and/or tears and cuts through the paper making some cigarettes unsmokable.

    Now I understand that that issue #2 ( randomly goes out) is to help prevent fires by making the cigarettes go out when not being continuously smoked but this does not work all the time and even when it is being continuously smoked they tend to go out anyway.

    Issue # 1 (cherries falling off) is my biggest complaint because considering they are trying to help prevent accidental fires, the cherries falling off defeats that purpose and causes more accidental fires, burns, and holes in clothing, furniture, etc. So whats the point? Every Marlboro does this every time it gets near the end so its not a fluke or it only happens sometimes. It happens EVERY TIME. This is irritating and costly.

    Issue #3 (stick, tears, holes, cuts, etc) I have found these issues in more than 1 pack of cigarettes recently. I have even had a pack that had 3 cigarettes with tears in the paper that looked like they were cut by a razor blade and in the same pack I had 2 cigarettes with tears due to big sticks in the cigarettes. What happened to the quality? Where is quality control? As much as a pack of Marlboros cost every single cigarette should be smokable period. When I pay for a pack of 20 cigarettes I want to smoke ALL 20.

    These are my biggest complaints and I'm sure there are tons of smokers who can relate and feel the same way as I do.

    Please get your $**t together Marlboro! It is not a lack of funds that is preventing you to put out quality cigarettes.

    I have been smoking Marlboro for quite a while now and i have never experienced such an bad product before. I bought a carton and found that some of my cigarettes are not glued correctly at the filter end which makes it quite impossible to smoke. Please have this complaint look after I found that there's a few of these complaints
    Thanks

    It is very unfair that they promote a campaign wherein products are available, but the products are out of stock or unavailable for more than half the time the promotion is running. Very discouraging.

    The last 5 packs of cigarettes I have bought were in faulty packaging. When you open the pack, the side top of the box is not sealed. This has caused me to lose many cigarettes out of my packs due to it not closing properly. Tape is not always handy. Please replace the cigarettes I have lost due to faulty packaging. Thank you.

    I was one that tried all night t get into Marlboro, I was able to use all my MOONS on the items I choose except the first one that I couldn't get in on. I understand everyone is miffed and that they should have been more prepared but really folks, they don't even have to do these contests. You should be grateful that you had the chance to enter and go to the next contest they have and enter if you choose to.
    I have heard many people say well I won't smoke Marlboro again, yeah right...say that as you are lighting another one. That is even if you actually do smoke Marlboro.

    Give it up people and move on.

    Tried all night, was able to use one token on something I didn't even want. Just wanted to make sure I knew how to use it. When it came time to use the rest I could not log on. Ridiculous waste of time.

    Totally agree, I was able to get on for the first hour tried to log back in for the rest of the whole time...no such luck!! What a waste of my time, I am very disappointed with this how could they not be prepared for all the "heavy traffic" on the site when you cant enter your tokens but for one hour. Total scam not knowing if I had a chance to win but at least it would have felt better to have know I could have entered. Totally upset to put it nicely!!!

    Unfortunately, same as above. I was interested in one item only. Low and behold, I come back to the website one hour early and get the following:
    "We're sorry but Marlboro.com is currently unavailable due to high volume. Please call [protected]" which of course at that time was not normal business hours. Recently Marlboro conducted a survey in which they questioned loyal brand buyers what their preferences were when it came to promotions. This one was ok until you had to redeem your tokens. EPIC FAILURE BY THE IT DEPARTMENT FOR BEING UNPREPARED!!! I have not called customer service yet...I'm sure that will be a disappointment as well.

    This contest was a complete waste of 9 weeks and 9 hours! Did they not expect a million people to be entering? I call BS! If their servers can't handle the traffic then why do the finale this way. So pissed right now..I was not able to get in, and I started at 5pm est, until the 4th prize, then it kicked me out and wasn't able to get in again til the last two prizes. And those weren't even the prizes I wanted to enter for. Don't get me wrong, I would be grateful for anything I won, but that was just ridiculous. They need to think that out a little better next time. Come on Marlboro...what the hell??

    Same thing here... This is uncalled for, really >:( I don't know what the hell so many ppl are doing on there anyways... They have to be lurking & clogging up everything. What ever happened to just logging in at time(s) desired, entering tokens & then "x" out until the next time? I think a lot of it too is ppl purposefully staying logged onto the site, constantly refreshing their page all night so that they stay logged in so the log in gets jammed & many other ppl can't log in and enter. Less ppl entering = more chances of them winning >:(

    Having same exact problem. Called them they were rude. I said what happens to unused tokens or prizes not awarded, no answer. Apparently the tokens are forfeited if not used according to rules...complete scam. Like they didnt expect millions logging in during same hour...

    Marlboro has been running a Round Up sweepstakes for several weeks. One was able to win entries into grand prize.
    A one day bonus Grand Prize Red Moon Round Up sweepstakes on 09/27/2015 to take previous weeks winners to enter for different prizes each hour for 9 hours.
    The site has been down due to heavy internet traffic. Suggests you call their 800# which has excessive hold times.
    Poor planning on Marlboro IT department and unfair practice to those thousands of person (myself included) who cannot particpate.

    You realize the company might take you more seriously if you knew how to spell. Your spelling is atrocious! Try using a dictionary or spell check before sending a letter to a company since you obviously cannot spell!

    There is no doubt in my mind that the changes Philip Morris has made to its cigarettes has created a diametrically opposite result of the intended reduction in fire risk. I have been smoking Marlboros for around forty years. About a year ago, I bought a new sofa. It now has about more fifty burn holes in it. My previous sofa, though worn, had none.

    I think that Philip Morris has significant liability here and I intend to pursue this. Is anyone interested in joining me in this effort?

    I do not have photograhs at the moment but will post them shortly.

    First of all, let's clear up the comment above by hammerthe idiot32901. We aren't idiots! It sounds to me like you don't smoke at all. That being the case, you have no opinion, at least not one that counts. If a Marlboro is lit and dropped on clothing or anything that can catch fire, do you really believe the cigarette is going to "go out"? NO! It is going to cause a fire. Smoking it is when it goes out.

    I agree about the Marlboro cigarette problems. I smoke Marlboro Special Blend 100's. The fire falls off at least once on every one I smoke. You burn your clothes and anything else you are near because the fire just, (falls off).

    I smoked regular Marlboro 100's for 30 years and never had a problem at all until 4 years ago. After such a problem with them, I switched to the Special Blend last year with the same problem still happening. These companies put other things besides nicotine into their tobacco that got us addicted to cigarettes, now they have the gall to charge us $55.00 to $64.00 a carton. Well, if I continue to buy them at any price but most certainly at those prices they had better make darn sure the cigarette stays lit and is smokeable.

    To all the idiotic Marlboro customers: The United States government has forced the cigarette companies to make all their cigarettes F.S.C.. Which stands for fire standard compliant. They are designed to go out. If your too stupid not to pay attention when your smoking, and burn your own property it's your own fault!!! To everyone who doesn't like it, get over it, and get a life!!!
