HOUSTON, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With "vape" shops are cropping up all over the country, enticing e-cigarette users both new and old alike to make purchases in person rather than online, CigReviews.com has one main advantage: savings.
According to an article on the growing trend toward brick-and-mortar storefronts, Healthy Markups on E-Cigarettes Turn Vacant Storefronts Into Vape Shops, Bloomberg explains how business is booming for owners of shops that offer e-cigarette starter kits, cartridges, e-liquid and other accessories. While these businesses are a boon for the local economy—they're taking up residence in real estate space abandoned during recent tough economic times—they may not be saving e-cigarette users money.
"One thing they don't afford are the discounts that you find online," says Mark Wunder, CEO of CigReviews.com. "The coupons offered on CigReviews allows users to save 20 to 30 percent on startup kits, for example. When you consider that they retail for close to $180, you can how ordering online can lighten the strain on your wallet."
According to the vape shop article, the same e-cigarette supplies consumers find at a discount online are marked up by as 200 to 400 percent. And while vape shops do allow consumers to customize their own blend of the liquid that is turned into vapor by the battery-operated e-cig dispenser, CigReviews offers what brick-and-mortar establishments can't: reviews of the products by real people.
"Online you can actually see real reviews," Wunder points out. "In a local store you don't have the opportunity to see what others are saying about different brands and how the kits work."
While reviews are moderated, posters share actual experiences using the various brands featured at CigReviews, including V2, Blu, ProSmoke and others. In a review of V2 products one consumer stated:
"I have tried quite a few different kinds of e-cigs. They are the best by far. They have taken care of any problems that I have had right away. The customer service people are great! I got these to quit regular cigarettes. It worked!! Have not smoked a regular cigarette since January 2012."
CigReviews provides discount codes for every featured brand of electronic cigarette, offering convenient links straight to each brand's site for easy ordering.
"Our site really is a portal to saving money on e-cigarette products," Wunder concludes. "From starter kits with dispensers and different liquid vaping flavors, to batteries and charging kits, we help take the guesswork out of e-cigs."
