    Is it just me or have all juice prices jumped? Almost everywhere i look 30 ml of juice is $16.99. To me this is absurd and i will literally stop vaping if i have to pay that much. Juggies is the only place that has reasonable priced juice and in my opinion they are the best. Why do these places that only have 10 mediocre juices feel they can charge nearly $20 per 30 ml when one of the best is 50% cheaper? I love juggies but sometimes its hard to get an order in. When i started vaping the going rate was $9.99 or even less.
    Where are people getting reasonable priced juice these days?
    thanks.

    Making it on my own. That said, shipping from the US for all my supplies such as nic and flavourings has gone up substantially. Guessing they're making up for lost money in border seizures or the like.

    I make my own too. Zero nic. VG and PG from a local drug store. Flavorings from Canvape. It doesn't get any better than that :smokie:

    I was speaking with a vendor a couple of days ago and his orders from the US are 1 and 1. Every other order gets stopped at the border and sent back. If you're low on product, that hurts. Big time.

    It's getting harder for vendors to get the necessary supplies in a timely manner and their margins are suffering for it. Add price increases from US suppliers and you now see an increase in juice prices here. Let's face it. As much as we'd love to see rock bottom prices on everything related to vaping, that's a bit of a dream on our part. We have to expect price increases, especially if the cost of doing business is rising for our favorite vendors.

    I mix as well but even if I just bought all my juices, it would still be a tiny fraction of what smoking costs.

    I haven't noticed a price jump. Wasn't Juicy Clear like 23 bucks for 30 mL? That was like 3 years ago, and they were a pretty popular Canadian brand.

    Honestly though, free your mind and try unflavored. It won't mess with you palette over the course of the day, and you don't lose the throat hit.

    I just made 360 mL of 16 mg/mL for like $38. Can always add your own flavors.

    When I first started 2 years ago juice was about $22 per 30ml and has come down in price. As I go through 30ml a week it was still getting too expensive. Now I get unflavoured juice from either maple leaf vapes or here:

    Crystal E Liquid Bulk Unflavored - PG/VG


    The latter also does fantastic flavourings here:

    Crystal E Liquid Concentrate

    Those concentrates go a long, long way.

    Getting my supplies from a Canadian vendor. My next order, including shipping, will cost me less than a carton of cigarettes, and these supplies will last me at least a month to a month and a half. Even with Canadian prices, my weekly vape budget comes in at about the price of 1 pack of analogs.

    I feel the prices are reasonable.

    $16.99 for a 30ml bottle IMHO is not unreasonable considering that when I first started eliquid was harder to find and over 20 bucks a bottle.

    Now there are a ton of vendors out there and while there are some who still charge a higher price, there are many others that don't.

    I know what juices I like and use everyday, to me it's worth what I pay. It beats smoking and it's still cheaper than buying a pack a day. :)

    The fact of the matter is that it you can trade nicotine between provinces, but you can't import it. If you feel like Canadian vendors are being unfair to you you have a right to choose, even if it may not be delivered, but there is always a choice, and get it from who you feeel safest with. Not sure why the ....fest or the thread, Feel free to get nic juice where you choose.....

    The reason for the thread was to see if anyone else knew of any places other than juggies with juice at reasonable prices. Thought that was pretty obvious since i said that in my original post. Fact of the matter is, i can make any thread i want regardless of if you like it or not. And you can also choose to not reply to it if it bothers you. Not sure what your problem is. Lol

    Thanks to everyone else for the replies. Getting harder and harder to get in at juggies. Was only open for a few minutes this last time. Had to order some samples from some other vendors and guess ill have to simply pay more on occasions when i cant get in.

    Nodnerb if you come to a local meet you can have a chance to sample different juices to see what's out there.

    We also have draws for free stuff that gets donated by some of our wonderful Canadian vendors so chances are you can supplement your juice hoard with some freebies!

    A lot of vendors also have sales and offer discount codes - if you take advantage of some of those you can get your juice for a reasonable price. :)

    If it helps at all, there is a vendor where you can get juices for around $9.99 for 30 ml. It's here:

    Welcome to East Coast Vape

    I know it's not Jughead's, but there is quality product there.

    I know of another very high quality vendor that sells for under $15 per 30ml, not listing here as I especially want the lower-priced, and generally higher quality shops protected from the evil forces that pretend to be.
    Feel free to message for a link

    Bring some to the Karaoke vape meet on Wednesday. http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/canadian-meets-events/461001-happy-vaper-east-toronto-karaoke-get-together-2-sept-18-a.html

    Lord knows I love saving a buck, but I don't have the time or patience for DIY right now. I don't mind paying $15 or $16 for a good 30ml juice. Heck, when I started vaping there were places like Vapables and Juicy Clear who charged $20 a bottle, and I didn't think their juices were that great. I've ordered plenty from the US and China, but I think Canadian juice prices are generally pretty reasonable.
