Buying cheap discount cigarettes is no more a taboo following recent hikes in taxes hitting all those who smoke. Regardless of your brand of cigarette, it sure must have burnt a hole in your pocket, making everyone wish those tax free days were back.

Online sales of cheap cigarettes at discount prices have come to rescue smokers so much that, despite selling at cheap prices, the websites are still making profits in the millions. The usual reservations about the freshness of cigarettes and privacy of your personal details have long been overshadowed by the genuineness of crisp packs that are delivered to you. Adherence to privacy, tax and age-related legalities by online cheap cigarette sellers, in addition to secure transactions, are what made them popular for buying cigarettes cheap.

How Cheap Are Cheap Discount Cigarettes?

It may surprise you, but buying cheap Marlboro cigarettes online can save you almost 1/3rd in most states. It isn’t just Marlboro that has become cheap online; buy any of your favorite brands for that matter, such as Marlboro, Camel, Winston, Virginia Slims, Salem, Kent, Barclay, Carlton, etc., and you will save a huge sum if you are buying in bulk. If you were paying $40-$45 per carton of Marlboro earlier, cheap discount cigarettes can be bought at $25 or less. Buying cheap cigarettes in bulk also has another benefit in that you don’t run out of stock frequently, which, otherwise, always occurs at unfortunate times.

Cheap Cigarettes and the Price/Quality Ratio

Let me begin by asking where do you get menthol tobacco cigarettes fresh and cheap; online or offline? Of course, you may be satisfied with your neighbourhood store, but think for a minute: all consumables grow stale over time sitting on the shelf. But what with low or no taxes (in certain Indian settlements) being levied on online cheap cigarette shops, smokers tend to buy more in bulk than otherwise, which saves them a small fortune both ways. The constant movement of this kind of bulk stock emphasizes three critical points about quality:

  • that buying discount cigarettes is really cheap
  • stocks are more frequently replenished than in an offline shop
  • the greater the sales, the stronger is the smokers’ acceptance of quality

So How to Contrast the Cheap Cigarettes against Those Bought From a Corner Shop As Regards to Price/Quality Ratio

To begin with, let’s assume the qualities of cheap cigarettes purchased online are on par with cigarettes from a neighbourhood retail store. But in the bargain, you will have paid less money per carton/stick bought online. The ‘cheap cigarettes and the price/quality ratio’ comes under suspicion only if your consignment isn’t delivered in good shape or within the specified time. So, the first thing you need to check is whether the packaging is intact and whether moisture had entered inside. You can also check individual packs for manufacturing dates.

Now that selling cheap cigarettes like Marlboro, Virginia Slims, L & M or Kent online is commonplace, the apprehension about its legality isn’t a deterring factor anymore. Given the issue of quality being settled, the increased taxes are the things that matter most to a regular smoker, especially if he/she were living in states like New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington, Michigan and Arizona, where the tax increases are over $2.00 per pack. The issue of quality is by far a foregone conclusion when online retailers are also buying from the very same tobacco manufacturers as do their offline counterparts.

Once you are assured about quality, buying cheap cigarettes online will win you over and what matters is the money you can save over the long term.
