Vape juice is the life blood of vapers and it’s one of the most important things in your vaping experience. If you have a great coil, great mod, but a bad vape juice flavor, you’ll be less inclined to vape it. If you’ve discovered a terrific flavor and can’t seem to get enough of it, sooner or later you’ll run out and you’ll want to figure out how to get more as quickly as possible. But where do you get it? What’s the best way to buy vape juice? And how do you know if you’re getting a good price? Let’s dive right in and see if we can answer some of these questions for you!
WHERE CAN I GET VAPE JUICE?
Premium high-quality vape juice is sold in vape shops across the globe, as well as in online vape shops across the web. A simple Google search can show you some of the closest brick-and-mortar vape shops near you, but you should be wary of the results. If a shop says “smoke shop” “hookah and vape shop” or “cigar, cigarette, and vape shop” in the title, it’s most likely going to be a convenience store that sells tobacco products as well as a limited selection of vape juice, hardware, and accessories. In a pinch, these types of shops can be a lifesaver, but I wouldn’t recommend frequenting these shops on the regular. Actual vape shops have an enormous selection of vape juices and some will even let you sample the flavors before you buy. For example, vape shops in New York City used to have unlimited sampling, but were accused of using their generosity as a way to lure underage kids or non-vapers into using nicotine products. To combat this, vape shops started charging a small fee (usually $1 or less) to combat the accusation of free vape juice. Physical vape locations are a great way to check out the newest e-liquid flavors, hardware, and accessories before you buy them.
If you’re not a fan of visiting stores in person, don’t feel comfortable going into a vape shop, or simply don’t have any good ones near you, we live in an era where nearly anything bought in a store can be easily acquired online. The same is true with vape equipment! Many online stores have cheaper prices and a wider selection than what you would find in store. And unlike brick and mortar stores, if something is out of stock online, you can check out another online store without ever having to leave the comfort of your home or office.
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO BUY VAPE JUICE?
In truth, there’s no right or wrong way to buy vape juice. As long as you meet the age requirements for the state you’re in, you can order in person or online for whatever you’re looking for. However, there’s a few things you should know about buying vape juice. If you’re buying from a store, you can easily produce your ID to verify you’re old enough to be buying it. But if you buy online, many sites will require you to upload a picture of your ID to verify you’re who you say you are. They don’t ever keep that picture on file, but some people may feel iffy about having their actual ID card uploaded online. Another thing to consider is that you can only buy vape juice with a digital form of payment (i.e. credit card, PayPal or bank account). With in-person transactions, you have the option to pay cash or sign for your purchase if you use a credit card.
Lastly, there’s the time frame to consider. Obviously if you purchase vape juice in store, you can walk out of the store with it and immediately start using it. Online purchases can take several days to get to you between the time to fulfill the order and ship it out. If you’re okay with waiting, you’ll probably get a better price by buying online. But if you simply can’t wait to get that yummy flavor back in your tank, you’ll be more satisfied with a physical store. Again, not to say that one option is better than the other, but it’s all about your preference.
You should NEVER buy secondhand juice or juice that’s already been opened. Those security seals mean something and you have no idea what that other person did to the e-juice before you got it. It might be tempting to get the juice at a fraction of the price online or in-store, but the risks far outweigh the benefits. You may have heard in the news a few months ago how some teens were getting sick from buying underground THC and mixing it with their vape juice. It came out that the black-market underground vape juice had extremely dangerous chemical additives that resulted in hospitalization and in some cases, even death. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is! Support your local businesses and buy products with confidence from a trusted shop. Aside from peace of mind, you can easily verify what you're buying before you buy it.
HOW TO KNOW IF YOU’RE GETTING THE BEST PRICE?
This can be a bit of a tricky issue, since most vape shop prices vary with the bottle size and brand. For the most part, a 120mL shouldn’t cost more than $30, a 60mL shouldn’t cost more than $20. Nicotine salts will usually be in a 30mL bottle, but since they last longer than free-base nicotine, you’ll wind up paying around the same price as a 60mL bottle. There are many shops (both online and in store) that charge well under this price but you should keep this price point in mind if you’re visiting a shop for the first time or straying from the normal online site you buy from.
Here at eJuice.deals, we pride ourself on being one of the best online vape shops and have some of the lowest vape juice prices in the industry. We carry some of the most popular flavors and frequently try to post reviews of different hardware and e-liquid so you can get an idea of what flavor or mod is right for you.
We do have several of our customers post brief reviews of any product they purchase for a small discount on their next purchase. However, sometimes you want more information than a simple “this e-juice is great!” or “great quality, fast shipping!” That’s where our reviews become so important. We describe the flavor, e-liquid color, packaging, and so much more. One thing we realize is that e-liquid’s flavors are subjective. You might absolutely love this one flavor and your fellow vaper can’t stand it. In each review, we post why we like and what to expect when you fill up with it.
If you have any other questions on any of the products we sell, we’re always here with answers! If you’ve bought anything from our store and would like to drop a comment on how much you enjoyed it, feel free to do so! We always love hearing from our loyal customer base!
