It may not be as expensive as traditional smoking, but the costs associated with an e-cig can mount up too. Here are some tips to help your wallet.
Look out for deals.
It’s rare that you can’t find a great deal, or a coupon off, or free shipping, or some other attractive incentive to purchase. For example, there’s an awesome Jacvapour coupon here that may make you want to try the brand. Shop around a little, and you can pick up great deals. Once you’ve purchased from an e-cig store or supplier, you’ll often be offered sweet deals via email campaigns, pre-launch purchases and more. Be sure to take advantage of them too.
Loyalty programs or recycling.
If you’re going to refill cartridges, you’re obviously going to want to hang on to them. But if you’re purchasing cartridges separately, look out for a recycling incentive. Sometimes it will involve sending cartridges back. Many others allow point exchanges for every returned cartridge. Other sites offer loyalty schemes for purchases through them. Throw the two together, and you can make a ton of decent savings on your vape habit. On some sites, you can even use referral codes to generate leads among your friends. Many will offer a voucher as incentive in return.
Consider your warranty carefully.
Not all warranties are made the same. There’s many out there that are literally not worth the paper they’re written on. Sadly, it can often be some of the priciest purchases, too. Read your warranty very carefully and be certain you know- and are happy with- what would happen in the event of a return. Do you need to budget, for example, for a new battery to tide you over while the other one is sent back? Are you covered for things you’re likely to encounter? This and more is needed, and rather you know what you’re buying at the time then get a nasty shock when you need it.
You don’t need everything at once.
It’s tempting, we know, but you don’t need to buy everything at once. Don’t be tempted by a ‘starter kit’ if it’s out of your budget. A battery, charger, few cartridges and some cheap e-liquid will allow you to hit the road running. Keeping it limited in the beginning also means you can easily try different brands until you find the one you want to use. Gradually build up your collection over time, and be sure to make use of offered free sample packs to try out flavors before committing to their purchase.
Maintain your e-cig
As with cars, a little maintenance goes a long way. Make sure you keep the terminals of your battery clear of debris that may cause shorts or loose connections. Be sure to clean the e-cig periodically, and don’t forget that certain strong flavors will leave residue tastes you will want to clean. Make sure that the e-cig itself never is overfilled or suffers from dry wick, as both will impact your smoking experience.
