There are vaping companies and then there is Direct Vapor. This is one company that stands out above all the rest. And there are a few reasons for this.
If you vape, then you already know how competitive each purveyor of e-cigs, mods, vaporizers, e-juice and other supplies has to be in order to remain in business. Every company wants your business. Most of the time, you as the consumer are re-stocking your supplies – whether it’s batteries, e-liquid, a new RDA or what have you – and you are looking to save money while you do it.
You – like hundreds of thousands of your fellow cloud chasers – get to the check out page, and notice a spot for a coupon code. You search for a code, and hopefully – if it’s your lucky day – find one for whatever the promotion is for that day, week, or month. 5% off? You’ll take it! 10% off? Even better!
Finding e-cig promo codes becomes almost a sport. You won’t stop until you win.
Direct Vapor, a Miami, Florida based company knows this. And so they have taken a little bit different approach to the usual coupon code madness that almost consumes the consumer.
Their “Low Price Guarantee”
Instead of having you running all over the internet looking for a coupon or promo code that doesn’t exist, what they have done is to institute a “Low Price Guarantee” that saves you the time and hassle. Check this accompanying screen shot that explains it fairly plainly:
We hereby vow to give you the lowest price possible! Should you find a product cheaper elsewhere, we’ll match that price or refund you the difference if you’ve already completed your purchase.
Of course there are a few caveats to this bold promise. Here are the basics:
They will only provide match pricing “from authorized resellers in the United States.” What this means is that they will NOT provide any price matching if a product is a clone and/or counterfeit (you’ll also see that Direct Vapor is a “No Clone Zone”), out of stock product, a refurbished product, or any product that may be part of a closeout.
And, how they calculate the price match is that they include the price of the product plus the cost of shipping and handling. That seems pretty fair, doesn’t it? Their price match guarantee is good for 15 calendar days from the date of your purchase – so don’t go asking them to make exceptions because you “forgot” or “lost track of time” or whatever. They are already being more than fair, so be fair to them.
What this Means at Check-Out
Usually, e-cig companies have a section at their check-out page where customers can add a discount code; however, you will not find such a section at DirectVapor.com.
If you go to the check-out page, you WILL find a small box where you can input a Gift Certificate – however, that is all you’ll find.
Between their low price guarantee, their excellent product choices, their free-shipping on most items, and their genuinely friendly customer service, you are pretty much sure to find exactly what you need to ensure that you 1) get the supplies you are looking for, and 2) the best deal around.
No Clone Zone
You don’t have to worry about getting low-quality counterfeit items either, because DirectVapor is a no-clone zone. This means you get the real deal. If you are looking for a SMOK Alien 220W Starter Kit, for example, you’ll find one at DirectVapor.com, and it will be authentic.
The same goes for a Kanger Evod Pro Starter Kit, or the SX Mini Q Class 200W TC MOD, or whatever else you have in mind. You get the picture.
They know that they have a reputation to uphold, and this promise to sell only authentic, high quality products is part of that.
Will they EVER Offer Discounts?
While it’s fabulous that the company has their products offered at an already competitive price, people still like a sale. Perhaps it’s human nature. What they will do is offer you when you first visit is a special sale: You’ll save $10 on your first order ($100 or more) – which is a nice welcome gift – if you’ll join their newsletter.
As a member of their emailed newsletter, you will then begin to get exclusive sales and discounts that are only available to subscribers.
This can rack up some considerable savings. For example, at the time of this writing, a big sale just ended that offered 15% off a purchase of $100, 10% off a purchase of $75, and 5% of a purchase of $50! Again, these discounts were totally automated and built into the product page. See the screenshot of how this offer was presented, and you’ll see what we mean.
Some people like the physical action involved with copying a “coupon code” and putting it into a special field at checkout. Personally, this writer doesn’t care about that, and would just as soon have the discounts applied automatically since it’s a time saver, and you get the discount anyway.
Aside from Looking for Discounts
There’s quite a lot to love about Direct Vapor, other than the competitive prices and customer service.
There is something about the entire website that just screams out: “Professional!” and “User Friendly” and a host of other likeable things about it.
The FAQs are to the point, the customer service page offers just about every explanation you could possibly need, their return policy is stellar, their free shipping is fantastic, and their 60-day warranty includes round-trip shipping (note that if you’re just returning something because you have buyer’s remorse, you’ll have to pick up the tab for return shipping – but you don’t have to pay a re-stocking fee).
Their choice of products has expanded as times have changed. For example, just a few years ago, you didn’t see many dry herb vaporizers other than the ever-popular Volcano Digital Desktop Dry Herb Vaporizer (which they do carry), but now there is a great selection vaporizers (e.g. the Atmos Tyga x Shine Pillar Dry Herb Vaporizer, or the Goboof Alfa Vaporizer and several others).
And, when it comes to tanks and rebuildables, it’s the same thing. A year ago, it may have been the Geek Vape Tsunami RDA that was getting a lot of attention. But, a short year later, and there are numerous others to choose from on the site.
In other words, it seems like Direct Vapor has been making a lot of strides in increasing the options for all vapers.
And yet, they haven’t forgotten the beginning vaper! There is no shortage of excellent starter kits. For example, there’s no reason to neglect looking at the fairly simple and straightforward Joyetech eGo AIO Starter Kit, which is still an amazing bargain for less than $20, as is the Kanger Evod Pro Starter Kit (also just under $20). In fact, DirectVapor.com is an excellent place for beginners to shop.
For those who are looking for premium mods, look no further. Between the high-tech and eye-catching look of the SX Mini G Class 200W TC Box MOD and the elegant look of the Lost Vape Therion DNA166 TC Vape MOD or the cool patterns on the Eleaf iStick Pico RESIN 75W Vape MOD, there is something for every taste.
In truth, Direct Vapor has made it almost ridiculously easy to shop with them.
So why go anywhere else?
