Good News For Aspire Fans As Aspire Co Say They’re Going Back To Pre-Tariff Prices
The recent announcement was met with near-universal praise from the vaping community.
In the just over ten years that vaping has been a significant part of society, it’s become an incredibly important part of many people’s lives. According to millions of smokers, they’ve been able to end their dependence on smoking once and for all thanks to e-cigarettes. Not only that but with more and more research published about the extreme harm reduction value they provide they’ve only continued to grow in popularity. Unfortunately, vaping has become the victim of increased tariffs over the last year, as a trade war between the US and China targeted several products, including vaporizers.
While some brands haven’t shown much concern for their customers in this trying time, one brand which is once again going above and beyond is none other than Aspire. In fact, their official distributor and brand representative for the USA, Aspire Co, recently announced that after nearly a year of increased prices due to tariffs, they would soon be reverting to their original lower prices as things between the two nations begin to cool off. The vaping community immediately praised the move as helping many more smokers have consistent and affordable access to vaping supplies.
Things always seem to be hectic for the vaping industry, but for once they’re not at the center of the debate. Instead, the current trade war with China is actually one of the more significant problems currently facing vapers across the country. Started as part of President Trump’s plan to make international trade with America fairer, the increased import taxes on products ranging from produce and nuts to solar panels and vapes is temporarily putting many vapers in a tight position. Things started to ramp up around this time last year with tit-for-tat increases in import taxes.
The result saw average vapers have significant changes in not only how much it cost to vape, but how easy it is to find their preferred products. Vaping advocates have warned these changes will ultimately discourage more smokers from attempting a switch. Some experts even believe increased regulations against vaping are actually benefiting Big Tobacco companies more than anything else. Advocates instead point to years of independent evidence which indicates vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking.
Aspire Co Pledge
Aspire products are well known around the vaping community as consistently providing exceptional vapor quality. Between the extraordinarily compact and form fitting Cobble AIO Kit, the powerful and versatile Dynamo 220W Kit, the all-new “stick” style Tigon Kit, or any of the many other fantastic products, Aspire is sure to have exactly what you’ve been hoping for. But Aspire, and their regional affiliates, are also gaining a fabled reputation for putting customers above all else. They recently backed this stance by announcing a plan to revert their prices to pre-tariff levels.
Aspire Vape Co has been an Authorized Distributor for Aspire products since March 2016 and was recently made the Brand Rep. for the US. Since our founding, we have been committed to providing our clients the best in vaping technology from Aspire, all 100% authentic product, and a dedication to providing excellent service to all.
For the longevity of our company and our customers, we’ve always done everything by the book, especially when it came time for the China tariffs. We raised our pricing in line with the increase, but now it appears relations with China have been improving and the end of the tariffs may be near. As a gesture of good faith to all our customers, we’ve decided to revert our pricing, preemptively, back to its pre-tariff state.
We believe this will strengthen our relations with all Aspire Customers and we will continue to work towards making our brand more accessible to all while maintaining the quality we are known for.
There is plenty of peer-reviewed evidence that vaping is an extremely effective harm reduction tool. While there are still lots of people who are unwilling to believe it, for once the source of the problem isn’t actually vaping itself. In this case, vaping has simply been one of the victims of a larger fight. But luckily as things start to cool off between the nations, brands like Aspire are willing to go above and beyond for their customers. Between their wide range of fantastic products and unmatched commitment to their customers, it’s no wonder why Aspire is growing into one of the premiere vaping companies in the world.
