‘Tis the season to inadvertently relinquish your life savings to Father Christmas! From Christmas cards to Christmas crackers and festive food to fabulous presents, there’s no escaping how expensive the seasonal splurge can be. Smoker? The chances are, what with countless Christmas gatherings and office parties to attend to, the opportunity to smoke more than your fair share of tobacco is one you casually and causally meet with open arms. A Christmas list as long as your arm and umpteen packets of cigarettes later and the balance of one’s bank account may be a little on the bleak side. Ready to start saving money? Ditch the cigarettes and switch to vaping and you could well be on your way to saving yourself a pretty penny in the foreseeable future.
How much do E-cigarettes Cost?
Where a typical pack of 20 cigarettes might cost somewhere in the region of £10 – £12, Vapour2 starter kits cost £19.99 and come with 4 different flavoured e-liquid cartridges. Each individual cartridge provides you with the equivalent of a pack of 20 cigarettes, which means that at the very least you may be saving £20 straight away.
Once you’ve found your vaping feet so to speak and have identified the best flavour and nicotine strength to suit your needs, you may want to invest in some refillable cartridges and multipacks of your favourite flavoured e-liquids.
Refillable cartridges (£4.99 – £8.31 per cartridge) are suitable for between 45 – 60 refills and a single bottle of 10ml premium quality e-liquid (£5.99) will contain enough to refill your cartridge 10 times or more. This is a great way to further keep costs down and to keep that piggy bank plump.
Buying your kit and e liquid isn’t necessarily the same as buying your standard pack of cigarettes and there exists a world of vaping paraphernalia that if you’re not careful could lead you down a fairly costly route. We would always recommend to purchase a starter kit to introduce yourselves to vaping. This way you can find a flavour that works for you and evolve and upgrade your vaping equipment along the way as you see fit.
How Much Money will I Save by Switching to E-cigarettes?
Depending on your habits your choice of devices and accessories, the amount of money you will save by switching to vaping will of course differ. If you smoke 20 a day, you could be spending anything from £310 to £375 a month on cigarettes. However, vaping the equivalent number may cost you just under £40 for the month (£19.99 Vapour2 Vape Pen including one refillable tank+ £19.99 for 3 x 10ml e-liquid). That’s a whopping saving of over £250 in just one month!
Healthier Bank Balance, Healthier You
As well as saving yourself a small fortune by switching to vaping, you may potentially be saving your own life too! In 2017, smoking-related deaths accounted for 16% of all adult fatalities in the UK. In 2015 Public Health England published an independent report stating that e-cigarettes are up to 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco and that they have the potential to help smokers become smoke-free.
