Meet our Fan of the Month: Debbie J

blu: How long have you used blu?

Debbie: I’ve been with blu for over a month.

What’s your favorite blu product?

The blu PLUS+™.

What’s your favorite flavor and why?

I like Blueberry because it tastes like blueberries. I don’t feel like it tastes artificial like some vaping liquids can taste. Plus the flavor just makes me happy!

Tell us about your experience with blu and how it’s impacted you day to day?

It’s a great feeling not smelling like smoke every day anymore. Plus, I don’t have to worry about “where’s my lighter?!” (I had seven at one point!)

You have the entire day to spend doing whatever you want. How do you spend it?

I would go for an expensive, all-day spa relaxing and pampering session which would include every service possible.

Where are your go-to vaping spots?

Unfortunately, I’m not very exciting in this area. I vape in my car on the way to and from work, at work, at home and when I go to visit my family.

I also vape while I am playing video games and while watching TV.

Any advice for a first time vaper or someone new to blu?

I would try the blu PLUS+™ Xpress Kit first to see if you like it. If you do, I would purchase the blu PLUS+™ Rechargeable Kit so that you have three rechargeable bases to use. One in use, one charged and in the pack carrier and one charging. That way you don’t ever have to go without a charged one! Also, try the Blueberry!

California Raises Taxes On E-Vapor Products

Recently California proposed an increase in the excise tax on e-vapor products. The details are as follows:

  1. Effective as of April 1, 2017 the California tax on tobacco products, is at a rate of 27.3%.
  2. On July 1, 2017, the tax rate on tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes and other nicotine delivery devices sold in combination with nicotine, will increase at a rate equivalent to the increase on cigarettes.
  3. The online tax would apply to vaping products containing nicotine. Other vaping products that do not contain nicotine, such as e-cigarettes, batteries, and chargers, are subject to tax only when sold in combination with products containing nicotine for a single price.

This new excise tax hike will only affect residents of California.

As always, we will continue to fight on behalf of you, our valued customer, when states propose and try to enact burdensome taxes on our consumers.

To everyone who saw the announcement about our new Fish flavour e-liquid, we say…


Unsurprisingly there aren’t a whole lot of vapers who are looking for a fishy punch to their vape. That being said, we’re always interested to hear your thoughts and we’d love to get your opinion on what you think would make a great blu® Liquid flavor in the future.

It’s your ideas that keep us moving forward, so make sure to share on our Facebook and Twitter page.
