Up until a few years ago, seeing someone with an e-cigarette was rather unusual. But lately, I see people vaping everywhere I go. This increased use of e-cigarettes has caused many towns and cities to place bans on vaping in public buildings. This is just one indication of how prevalent e-cigarettes are becoming.
If you drive through your neighborhood, you are bound to come across a couple stores that sell electronic cigarettes. Most convenience stores also carry e-cigarettes. However, this is not the best, cheapest way to purchase electronic cigarettes and their components. As with many other things, you selection will be much better if you shop on the Internet. This is especially important if you are shopping for something like e-liquids, were there are hundreds of potential flavors. I've found that the variety of flavors available at vape stores are much more limited than what you can find online.
With all that said, it's important to keep in mind that not all online e-cig stores are worth your business. Many of them sell cheap e-cig products imported from China. While you may save some money buying from such stores, don't expect the quality of your products to be high. I've bought batteries that leak, e-liquids that have a strange chemical flavor, and had other bad experiences by purchasing from the cheapest vendor.
A much better way to get your e-cigarettes is to buy brand name products from places like White Smoke. For only a couple dollars more for something like batteries, you end up with a much more reliable product. It's worth it to pay a bit more for brand name e-cigs, especially since the cost of e-cigs on the whole are rather low, especially when compared to the cost of regular cigarettes.
But that doesn't mean you should pay full retail price for brand name e-cigarettes either. One thing you can do is go to a search engine and look for coupons for your favorite e-cigarette store. I use search terms like "White Cloud coupon code" or "White Cloud E-cigarettes Discounts" to find deals all the time. Sometimes, you will need to copy/paste a short code in order to claim your discount. In other cases, you may gain access to special promotions or giveaways. Either way, it's well worth it to take the extra time to hunt for an online coupon. Read more about this at e-cigbargains.com.
I hope this information will help you find the best e-cigarette products at the lowest prices possible. Have fun vaping!
