Cigarette Pack Trade In Promotion


We are now out of the FREE kits for the trade-in promotion. Over 1,000 people of West Michigan have given up their packs of cigarettes to try using an electronic cigarette. We're already seeing some of those people returning to the stores for refills, sharing their stories of how easy it was to make the switch and how much better they feel.

Because this campaign was so overwhelmingly successful and we SOLD OUT far quicker than expected, we will still be offering a TRADE-IN discount. Bring in your pack of cigarettes and trade them in for 25% off a Vision starter kit (normally $59.99) until the end of June. (Offer is for NEW customers only).

Electronic cigarettes have grown dramatically in popularity since being introduced to the U.S. market in 2005/2006. Where they could only be obtained by internet/mail order or through late-night infomercials a few years ago, they are now available across the county through major retail/grocery outlets, gas stations, tobacco shops and retail stores dedicated to their manufacture, distribution and use.  One such store in West Michigan is Kalamazoo Vapor Shop. Started over 3 ½ years ago, it has grown both at the original Kalamazoo store, with online sales across the world and with the opening of a new location on the west side of Grand Rapids (opened October 2012).

While not approved by the FDA as a smoking cessation method, tens of thousands have utilized them as a smoking alternative to reduce or eliminate their dependency on traditional cigarettes. We hear stories every day from customers who say they feel healthier, are breathing easier, and have more energy in addition to saving a large amount of money after making the switch to electronic cigarettes.

The average cost of a “starter kit” is $40-$70 with a monthly upkeep (e-liquid and replacement atomizers/cartomizers) of $20-$30. The average monthly cost for a pack-a-day smoker is $210. Even when presented with this potential cost savings, many consumers are reluctant to purchase a starter kit due to the initial cost outlay or concerns as to the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes in making an easy transition away from tobacco cigarettes.

Kalamazoo Vapor Shop, West Michigan’s premiere electronic cigarette retail store, is offering people the opportunity to “make the switch” for the cost of a pack of traditional cigarettes. For the month of June (2013) (while supplies last), any new customer who brings in a pack of tobacco cigarettes (opened or unopened)  to either of our stores can trade them in for a new electronic cigarette kit. This kit ($35 value) contains an eGo style battery, a CE4 clearomizer, USB battery charger and a 5ml bottle of our quality, hand-blended e-liquid in any nicotine level (0-24mg) and their choice of any of our over 80 gourmet flavors.


This offer is valid at either our store locations:

Kalamazoo – 4129 Portage St., Kalamazoo, MI  49001  (269) 343-4800

Grand Rapids – 4761 Lake Michigan Dr. NW, Grand Rapids, MI  49534  (616) 608-6326
