Pods or Mods?
Everyone loves to save money, and vapers certainly aren't any different. In fact, saving money is why many of us switched to vaping in the first place. Besides all the health reasons, vaping has many benefits vs smoking as we all know. The fact that vaping is so much cheaper when compared to smoking is near the top of this list of benefits. In this article, we are going to talk about how to take vaping to the next level and show you some helpful tips and tricks to save a ton of money when shopping for vape gear or juice.
Tip #1 - Buy Vape Gear and E-Juice Online.
If you really want to save some serious dough, avoid the local brick-and-mortar stores unless you need something right away. Online vape stores are, for the most part, the cheapest way to buy your gear or juice. Online retailers have less overhead and can ship out products with less labor than a local store can stock and merchandise their products. Online stores only have one drawback, they have to ship your vape-mail to you, and that can take a few days. But if you are able to plan out your needs a few days in advance, you can easily save 25%-75% on juice alone! Vape mods and tanks are also cheaper online, as most online companies buy directly from the manufacturer in large quantities, compared to local stores, who only buy a few products at a time.
Tip #2 - Buy E-Juice in Bulk or Bundle Packs.
If you are one of those vapers who buys one bottle of juice at a time, stop it! Planning out your monthly juice order is much cheaper than stopping by a vape store to buy one or two bottles of juice. If you buy one 60ml bottle of juice per week for $20 at your local store, you are spending $80 per month! Do yourself a favor and look for 3 Pack Bundles e-juice bundle deals instead. Buying your e-juice in bundles could easily save you 50% every month, compared to buying one bottle at a time! In addition, bundles offer a variety of flavors so you never get stuck with the same flavor all the time.
Tip #3 - Understand Shipping Costs.
Many online vape retailers offer free shipping when your order exceeds a minimum price. This is a no-brainer when you combine this tip with tip #2. Even if the online store you are shopping at doesn't offer free shipping with a minimum order, you can reduce the total cost of each item you buy if you stock up for the month. Simply buy all the gear you need in one order. If shipping is $8.00 and you buy 8 items, you only pay $1 shipping per item. That is worth not getting in the car and driving 10 miles to the store and back! Valiant Vapes offers free shipping over $59.99 for US residents.
Tip #4 - Don't Buy Newly Released Gear.
Vaping technology has come a long way in the last 10 years, but there have been very little technical advancements in the last 3-5 years. Knowing this, why would you want to pay 25% more for the latest and greatest version of an already great device? It is unlikely that the newer model has any more features or tech in it, so buying a device that was released 1-3 years ago is a great way to save. You can easily find these older devices, brand new in the box, with full warranties and all, just by doing a little digging.

Welcome back! Today is a blog about a vlog, which you can watch here.
First, merch. We have a new item in the Savage merch collection: embroidered snap-backs. Theys are white with either black or pink embroidery that says SAVAGE & honestly, I (Kathryn) love them. I have the pink one, it’s super cute, & you can get one here.
Next, shows. Next week (March 22nd & 23rd) Brittany & Josh will be going to Brooklyn. This is a B to B (business to business) show that will include some reviewers & press, but if you’ll be there be sure to stop by!
Shows are very exciting & a lot of work. The day before the show is usually set-up day, which, according to Brittany, is the least glamorous day. There’s basically a giant room filled with people setting up their booths- putting together backdrops, setting up display cases, pull-up banners, lights, unboxing product, & setting up the testing bars. This year Brittany will be in Colorado, Virginia, Chicago, Greece, Germany, Italy, & possibly China & the UK so be sure to stay tuned!
On to nic salts. We get a lot of questions on all of our platforms asking things like “What are nic salts?” & “How do I vape them?” & these are great questions. Nic salts are a purer form of nicotine base. It’s a base, it’s nicotine, it’s a liquid, & it’s a purer form of nicotine than just a regular 3mg juice. They are great for pod systems & they enable manufacturers (like Savage) to make juices with higher mg’s of nicotine, like 35mg or 50mg. If you’re a new vaper or if you’re looking to quit smoking, pod systems & nic salts are a great option & you can check out our blogs on the Suorin Drop here or the Mi-Pod here. There’s speculation that Savage could eventually make 3mg & 6mg nic salts which would be awesome, & hopefully that’s something that we will see.
Next up is CBD. We do sell Savage CBD & we have 3 flavors (with a 4th in the making!) in 250mg, 500mg, 750mg, & 1000mg:
Driven- blue raspberry candy
Passion- watermelon candy
Serene- green apple candy
One of the questions that we are asked the most often is “Can I mix my CBD with nicotine?” & the definitive answer is no. Don’t do that. You should keep them separate & use separate tanks. If you have tried our 750mg or 1000mg CBD & you notice that it’s a little clumpy, don’t worry. that’s totally normal. Just give it a good shake & you’re good. Also, what’s cool about our CBD is that it’s not just for vaping. You can drop it into your water, put it in a sandwich, or just put it on your tongue!
Why do people use CBD? We can’t speak for everyone, but Brittany vapes it at shows. After standing, walking, talking & moving for 8-12 hours at a show her back & feet hurt, so she’ll vape it & it relieves that pain. She also sometimes vapes it before she sleeps as it quiets her mind a little bit. So really the reasons vary, but ultimately we find it helpful in terms of easing pain or assisting in getting some sleep.
Can you pass a drug test after vaping our CBD? We do put our CBD through rigorous testing & according to the labs it contains untraceable amounts of THC. With that being said, if you need to pass a drug test, maybe don’t take the risk. It’s really up to you, & we can’t guarantee anything, but in general we recommend that you use your best judgement. You can buy our CBD here. If you’ve tried our CBD & you like it, mention us to your local store!
The last part is that Brittany needs an outfit for her sister’s wedding. She wants to channel Ellen DeGeneres (she’s a very stylish lady) for her Maid of Honor attire & isn’t entirely sure where to get that look. If you have any suggestions please leave a comment. I fully plan on being a part of the outfit choosing process so I will gladly pass on any knowledge y’all have to Brittany. Some important wedding details: it’s in Colorado, the color scheme includes burgundy, it’s in November, & she will be in a lot of photos.
That’s all for today! Thank you for reading, take care, & remember to #staysavage!
