So you've quit smoking, and you're looking for the next best alternative. You've heard about this new thing called "vaping," so you start doing some research and decide to try it. Your first problem will be finding cheap vaping supplies that still have great quality. There are tons of websites advertising the same products for different prices, so where do you start? Here are some tips to help you save money on your next vaping supplies order.
Buy from trusted vendors and websites.
If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. There are a lot of places where you can get great deals. But, you have to know that the products you're getting will be quality you can trust. If you see a store that's selling mods for under $100, or even for under $50, you should be concerned about what it is that you're getting. There are some very cheap products out there, and if you go with them, chances are you're going to have to sacrifice quality for the price.
Action tip: Select the right pricing option. When buying online, you will usually choose between economy and priority shipping. You may not think that the price difference between these options is much, but it can add up over time if you order frequently. The faster shipping may cost as much as $5 or more, so before you order your next tank of e-juice or dab rig parts, consider paying a little extra to get what you need when you need it.
Buy in bulk
Vaping is a hobby, not just a way to get through the day – which means that you probably want to buy your supplies in bulk. While it's easy enough to find all your components online and in local shops, big online retailers like DrDabber often offer good deals on bundle packages that give you huge savings in the long run. Here's how to buy anything from coils to mods in bulk and save the most with your orders:
- Buy in season.
- Buy online at wholesale prices if possible and not just the retail price.
- Bundle Packages
- Bundle packages, or "bundles" for short, are simply kits containing various items, usually related to one another. These items are usually sold at a discount (sometimes as much as 50%) compared to what you would pay if you purchased them individually. This can be a good way to save money and stock up on some essentials at once.
- Shop around – Shop around
While it's tempting to buy everything simultaneously, don't be afraid to wait for a sale before picking up a bunch of new mini-mods or fancy sub-ohm tanks. Sometimes you can get better deals at other online retailers like DRDabber, who frequently run 20% off sales on popular devices like the Vape Pens.
Know Which Products Have the Highest Warranty
You can't get a refund on a defective product, but you may be able to obtain a replacement. If a product has a warranty, you can file a claim and get it replaced or repaired. Most warranties are for 90-days and are based on the purchase date. Buyers need to understand that warranty policies vary among vendors and manufacturers. Your local vape shop should be able to help you learn about the products you buy as well as its warranty policy.
Buy secondhand products if you are unsure of the quality.
This is the cheaper option but still has an element of quality. Many vapers have chucked products they don't want anymore, and they're available to buy on websites like eBay and Amazon. Finding a trusted place to buy from is vital, though, as you don't want to waste your money on a substandard product. Here are three tips to help you find a great deal.
Be an informed buyer.
Always read reviews about companies and their products before buying from them. A good buyer will search for the best deals and read reviews for their chosen products to ensure they have got a great deal. It is also worth checking out sellers who have been active for a long time and have great customer service histories. People have a big issue when they first start vaping is the cost of all the equipment they need.
Consider DIY kits if you are on a very tight budget.
You can save money by making your e-liquid or modifying your existing juices. First, buy a DIY kit if you are on a tight budget. This option is suitable for beginners who want to quit smoking by switching to vaping.The DIY kit contains all the necessary items to make e-liquids at home. For instance, you will find a container, a syringe and bottles of flavors and nicotine. The syringe helps you make the right mixture of e-liquids. Furthermore, the bottles contain 10 milliliters of e-liquid. If this amount is not enough, you can buy additional bottles of e-liquid.
The kit also comes with bottles of premium flavors. The flavor lets you enjoy vaping since it is as natural as smoking. Another way to save money is to modify your existing juices with food-grade nicotinamide and vegetable glycerin (VG) or propylene glycol (PG). While there are many pre-mixed e-liquid at a low price, some people prefer to modify their existing juices to get more satisfaction from vaping.
Join a vaping supply group
If you can find one, join a vaping supply group on Facebook. These groups are huge, usually have thousands of members, and are full of people who love to share information. You'll find people there who will help you get a hands-on feel for different products, trade tips and stories, and give you their informed opinions on everything from parts to e-liquids. If you're the type who likes to tinker and try new things all the time, this is a great way to save money.
