Tips for Finding Vape Deals Online

Check the Consumer Review Sites

As vapers we all visit specialist review websites or you-tube to help find out whether that mod or tank we have our eye on deserves a place in our collection. However they can also be a good place to find deals as many manufactures offer promo codes to drive sales on new devices. Also because of the high traffic these sites have retailers often advertise limited time deals in sidebar ads.

Become a Rewards Member

Online retailers rely on repeat business, and to cultivate loyal shoppers, they offer any number of rewards programs designed to keep customers coming back. This usually involves signing-up to the sites newsletter in exchange for a discount code or free-shipping on your first order. Vape retailers will also send out weekly or monthly emails with current offers and exclusive for their email list.

Find Deals on Online Communities

Aside from checking on the company website, online forums and communities can be a great place to find vape discounts. There are dozens of specialist vape forums including forums solely for e-liquids, vape mods, DIY and individual countries. Another great place to find vape communities is on social media sites, such as Facebook and Reddit. Here’s a list of some of the most popular –

Check for Eligible Coupons

In some ways, shopping online is similar to shopping at your local vape store. Many merchants offer discount coupons for specific items or for services like free shipping. Instead of adverting coupons in the local newspaper or hand out flyers in the mall, online vape stores distribute discount codes to coupon websites.

Coupon sites like RetailMeNotHotUKdeals and OZVapeDeals gather coupons from around the web and collate them in one easy to search location. Some coupon sites may require that you sign up for a membership, but the service is typically free of charge. They also encourage users to submit deals, so if you find a deal and remember to share it with other vapers. The more people who participate, the larger the community becomes.

Take Advantage of Cashback Sites

Many people are using cashback sites to save money on bit ticket items, such as TV’s , flights or on-going subscriptions. However they can also be a great place to save on vape products. You will need to register with a cashback site, such as TopCashBack or ShopBack, from there you can search for vape retailers and click through. Once you have made a purchase, the percentage saving the retailer was offering will be visible in the cashback dashboard and is typically payable in 1-3 months.

The only thing to remember about cashback sites is that they usually only partner with larger retailers, so you will be unlikely to fine a saving for boutique e-liquid manufacturer.

About Ecigs

Electronic cigarettes heat liquid (which may contain nicotine) to make vapour for inhalation. They are intended to simulate smoking traditional combustible cigarettes and give smokers the feeling and pleasure of traditional smoking but without the flame, tar, ash or other products of combustion. Ethical traders and manufacturers market, label, and sell recreational nicotine products solely for adult use as an alternative to conventional cigarettes.

The use of vaporised nicotine as an alternative to smoke was suggested in 1963 when a patent was filed in the US for The Smokeless Non-Tobacco Cigarette: Gilbert

The present invention relates to a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette and has for an object to provide a safe and harmless means for and method of smoking by replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air; or by inhaling warm medication into the lungs in case of a respiratory ailment under direction of a physician.

In 1987 the US FDA closed the consumer market for the “Favor Smokeless Cigarette” by classing it as a medical product. It was a small tube containing “a plug impregnated with a nicotine solution” that allowed the user to inhale nicotine vapor and it was marketed to provide “cigarette satisfaction without smoke”.

The latest electronic cigarettes were patented in China by Hon Lik in 2003 and have been widely available to consumers since 2004. They are not designed for and generally should not be labelled or marketed as a means to quit smoking without a medical license. Some countries have banned the use and/or trading of ecigs by using medical, poisons and tobacco control legislation. Other countries are regulating under general consumer protection legislation. There are no ecigs or nicotine liquids with medical licenses, probably because that market is not profitable for manufacturers and traders.

The main issues currently surrounding electronic cigarettes are summed up by Thomas J. Glynn, PhD as follows –
Proponents of e-cigarettes list as benefits:

  •     Their ability to deliver nicotine to the user without many of the other 7,000+ chemicals in a regular, burned cigarette;
  •     Their absence of secondhand cigarette smoke;
  •     Their resemblance to regular cigarettes, which provide the tactile and visual sensations – holding them in a certain way, a glowing tip, blowing smoke, etc. – that many cigarette smokers have become used to, or even psychologically dependent upon;
  •     Their potential for aiding cigarette smokers to who wish to quit to do so.

Those with concerns about e-cigarettes warn of:

  • Lack of scientific data about their safety. Simply put, e-cigarette users cannot be sure of what they are inhaling, since e-cigarettes have not been subjected to thorough, independent testing and, due to their manufacture by many different companies, there are no quality assurances in their production processes;
  • Lack of scientific data about their effectiveness as quit-smoking aids;
  • Lack of scientific data regarding their ability to deliver enough nicotine to satisfy withdrawal effects;
  • Lack of scientific data about the effect of secondhand vapor from e-cigarettes;
  • Lack of scientific data about whether the use of e-cigarettes encourages smokers who might have otherwise quit to continue smoking and only use e-cigarettes when they are in no-smoking environments;
  • Lack of scientific data about whether youth may use e-cigarettes as an introduction to smoking regular cigarettes.
