If you’ve been vaping for a while, you’ll know just how much e-liquid can vary in quality. Most people who got into vaping with a basic starter pack probably remember just how incredible that first taste of a higher-end product was, and are loathe to go back to the generic flavors offered by mass-market brands.
The good news is that even if you can’t afford to spend a huge amount of money on your e-liquid, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy good quality products — you just need to invest the time in smart shopping.
To that end, here is our four-point guide on how to purchase e-liquid that will taste just as good as the premium stuff without vaporizing your bank account.
1. Find Sales
Like any other product, e-liquids — even very good e-liquids — do go on sale from time to time. Whether it’s because the seller overstocked or multiple shipments came in at once due to issues at the border, it’s not impossible to find discounts of twenty or even fifty percent on some products if you put in the time to shop around.
2. Order Direct from the Manufacturer
Over the past year, many of us have gotten very comfortable ordering vape products online due to restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
If you’re already used to having your favorite products shipped to you, it’s not a bad idea to cut out the middleman by shopping through more niche manufacturers who will ship their premium e-liquid directly to you at a lower price.
3. Look for Accessible Versions of Premium E-Liquids
Some high-end designers will offer more accessible lines of some of their most popular premium products.
Los Angeles-based Glas Vapor, which made a name for itself with premium e-liquid like banana cream pie and the unforgettable blueberry cake, offers the BSX series that is packaged and marketed to a wider audience while still delivering the same nuance and craftsmanship as their more exclusive products.
4. Buy in Bulk
Buying large quantities of any product will always give you a chance to save some money, and e-liquids are no different. Depending on where you live, you may have a number of options for buying premium e-liquids in bulk quantities so you can enjoy them stress-free for months to come.
While buying in bulk won’t work for everyone (you’ll need to be able to pay a lump sum for the shipment), if you have some financial flexibility this can be a great way to reduce the overall amount you spend on vaping over the course of a year.
As the popularity of vaping has taken off, so has the quality of the vape juice. Whether you love the tang of tropical fruit, the richness of butterscotch reserve, or the smoky smoothness of Cuban tobacco, premium e-liquid is the best way to get the most out of vaping. And with these four shopping tips, you can stay stocked up on your favorite flavors even when you don’t have a lot of disposable income.
