Where to Buy E-Cigarettes? Where You're Most Comfortable

Women Would Buy E-Cigarettes in Stores Where They Already Shop

E-cigarettes are all the rage in 2014 for good reason: for people who have a hard time quitting smoking, they offer a far healthier alternative.

In fact, the Royal College of Physicians in London now backs e-cigarettes as a safer alternative to smoking. A recent report in JAMA also concluded that e-cigarettes were better than nicotine patches in helping people quit smoking or at least reduce how much they smoked.

E-cigarettes are a safer alternative to smoking and have proven to be
better than the nicotine patch in helping people cut down or quit smoking.
E-cigarettes are a great alternative for the 20 percent of Americans who smoke. That 20 percent represents a broad cross-section of people -- men and women, young and old. Some have been smoking for years, while others are only social smokers -- only smoking when drinking (the two tend to go hand in hand).

Because there's such a wide variety in the types of people who smoke, it only stands to reason that there should be a wide variety in the types of places where you can buy e-cigarettes.

Of course, the most convenient way to buy e-cigarettes is online. And there's a huge array of online e-cigarette stores to choose from.

E-cigarette prices are still all over the map, but at Vaping Vamps, we've worked hard to keep our prices as low as possible, not just on e-cigarette starter kits but on refill cartomizers and e-cigarette cases, which are selling like hotcakes to people all over the world, because they're nice and compact and a perfect fit for our standard 510 e-cigarette batteries.

E-Cigarettes Are a Bargain. So Don't Fall for "Free E-Cig" Scams

If you're looking for an even better bargain on e-cigarettes, and are hoping to even score a free e-cig starter kit: BEWARE. We fell for that trap, and we're here to warn you against it at all costs. You'll end up paying way more than if you simply bought a single battery kit outright.

You can score a high quality single battery e-cig starter kit for less than $20 (with our e-cigarette coupon). When you get suckered into getting this exact same kit for "free," you'll be unpleasantly surprised to find your credit card was charged $120 two weeks later if you don't hurry up and return it by the end of the trial period. After all, don't you want to keep and use your e-cigarette? Then just get the best deal you can on it, and don't fall for one of those "free" schemes.

A lot of people start with disposable e-cigarettes, such as an NJOY. It's a great way to sample to see if you like the e-cigarette, but it doesn't last very long (that's why it's called a disposable -- duh!). My recommendation is to spend the extra $10 (most disposables cost around $10) on a Vaping Vamps "Try Me" kit -- and you'll have your battery around for a year or even more. Believe me, the expression "you get what you pay for" is alive and well in the e-cigarette industry.

Places to Buy E-Cigarettes

E-cigarette starter kits are popping up in retail stores all over the place -- from gas stations to convenience stores. You can buy disposable e-cigarettes there, and you can also buy Blu, which is a brand owned by the tobacco company Lorillard.

E-cigarette stores are also dotting the landscape all over the U.S. and are becoming as prevalent as coffee shops in some cities.

Women would rather buy e-cigarettes from stores where they already like to shop.
Eventually, Vaping Vamps will also be popping up in retail stores, but since our target audience are women who want to switch to vaping, we're more interested in partnering with stores where women are most comfortable shopping. And we've found many women are not that comfortable in e-cigarette stores.

In fact, we just held a focus group of young women smokers and they told us several key factors that would help them make the switch to the safer, sexier alternative. First, women who are lighter smokers tend to like the style, look and feel of the e-cigarettes we sell at Vaping Vamps.

While many women want to try e-cigarettes, there are two key barriers to buying them in e-cigarette stores. First, they have to go out of their way to find an e-cigarette store. Second, these stores tend to cater to more serious vapers with a product line that features bigger, heavy e-cigarettes with tanks and e-liquids. Many women don't want to "putz" with the e-liquids and prefer the convenience of pre-filled cartomizers.

They've told us they would be far more likely to buy e-cigarettes from stores they like to frequent such as a boutique or gift store. Who knows? Perhaps someday soon, you'll be able to buy Vaping Vamps e-cigarettes and a cute new outfit or purse to go with it at your favorite boutique!
