Big tobacco giant vapes wholesale
Big tobacco company Reynolds American Inc. is offering vape wholesale discounts to those who buy a tobacco product on its website.
The discounts are available from Tuesday to Thursday, Reynolds American said in a statement to Business Insider.
The company plans to offer discounts of up to 80 percent for vaping products, the company said.
The discount applies to “all e-liquid flavors, including e-liquids with nicotine strengths ranging from 1mg to 8mg, nicotine concentrations ranging from 0.2mg to 0.6mg, and nicotine delivery strengths ranging between 0.5mg and 3mg,” Reynolds American wrote.
“These discounts apply to all electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), electronic cigarettes, and vape pens.”
Reynolds American’s website offers many vaping products and nicotine levels, including nicotine levels of 0.8 mg.
According to the company, the vape prices on the website range from $5.79 to $9.99.
The vape prices are lower than some retailers and vape shops have offered, but some vape shops say the vape discounts are worth it.
“I know that some of our customers may be concerned about the nicotine level of the vape products,” said Jason C. Molloy, vice president of the Reynolds American E-Liquid Co. “But I assure you, these vape prices make a huge difference when compared to the other retail options.”
The vape discounts offer some relief to smokers who may have to wait a few days for a nicotine-free option.
However, some vape shop owners say the discounts are too little too late.
“Vape prices are low.
There’s no way that you can afford it for your vaping needs,” said Andrew M. Smith, a vape shop owner in Washington state.
“The prices are so low.
If you want to buy it, you can’t afford it.
There is nothing to compare it to.”
The tobacco industry is looking to the vape market, but the vape industry says the nicotine-infused e-cigarettes are safer than conventional cigarettes.
“When I look at the amount of tobacco in cigarettes, I have a hard time comprehending the amount in vapor,” said David G. Pyle, a former CEO of Philip Morris International Inc., the tobacco company that manufactures the e-cigarette brand Vapego.
“You have a very safe and effective alternative to smoking.
The tobacco company can’t be that naive.”
Pyle said that Reynolds American is looking for a buyer for its e-cig brand.
“We don’t know who Reynolds is looking at,” Pyle told Business Insider in a phone interview.
“They’ve got to make a decision about who they’re going to buy.
It may not be us.”
The vaping industry also has faced the same challenges that vaping has faced: competition from vaping accessories, including portable vaporizers.
Reynolds American, a $17 billion company, said in August that it expects to sell about 3 million portable vaporizer units by the end of the year.
Vapeheads also may have a difficult time finding a replacement for e-cigs that cost hundreds of dollars, as the price of vape products continues to drop.
“As more people get involved in the e cigarette market, the demand for vape products will increase,” Pile said.
“If we see an increase in demand, we will need to have more vape products.”
The National Cancer Institute estimated that nearly one-quarter of all new cancer cases in 2015 were from vaping.
Reynolds said it has plans to roll out new e-juice products to meet growing demand.
Reynolds also said it will work with the American Cancer Society to help educate people about vaping.
