Coming up on 4 years as a V2 customer smoke free on 9-11-15 Wonder if anyone still around from the forum back then. I been offline just trying to see how things been going. I remember a few people names but it looks so different now. Would like to know if they have a code for September.

    Been with V2 since October 2011, but lately I must admit I've started looking elsewhere.
    Shipping is becoming a major issue, they used to be very precise but now always on back order. Can stock up months worth of product just because I don't know whether the next order will be stuck on "awaiting fulfillment" for weeks.
    Also, the quality of the cartridges has dropped significantly in the last 1-1 1/2 years: I recently found a pack of 5 cartridges (Red 1.2)buried in a drawer that I had ordered probably 2 years ago, and imagine how surprised I was to notice that they lasted almost 3 times as much as the recently purchased ones...

    I have noticed the Reds don't last long at all but I always buy in bulk so shipping is always free. I'm still waiting on my last order of reds even the starter kit was missing the Reds lol. I have a few left so I hope they come soon.

    Good to see someone you look familiar.
  • alessiofanoalessiofano Posts: 9Member
    They called me on Friday to tell me that the Reds will ship September 25th. I ordered them on August 18th...
  • OwlOwl Posts: 175Member
    Yikes!!! Hope you can hold out till then. I'm waiting on reds 1.2s so if mine ship then I might make it since I have 10 carts left plus some coffee ones. I just hope they taste okay and last longer or I'm screwed and will have a full on panic attack.

    For those of you having issues w/ carts not lasting, have you considered buying blanks & filling your own carts? It's much better if you do & is more economical! I prefer the EX blanks w/ my liquid as the taste & vapor is much better then the standard carts. Think about it.. if ya do the standard blanks, you can refill them at least 5x's & you know they will last the expected time frame as you are ensuring they are filled to capacity every time! The EX blanks you can fill up to 20xs.. I actually get much more then that out of them as I clean them on a regular basis which allows them to last much longer! Just a thought for those of you having issues w/ pre-filled!

    Thanks for suggestions. I actually do the liquid v2 and add to carts but I'm out of that also blanks I had horrible experience with those so only add to existing red carts normally I add 25 ml to every order but forgot this time :(

    I'm still here, but I rarely make comments to forum. I may be wrong, but I thought the code was "getaway" for September. The codes are not as frequent, and they give you at most 15%.
  • OwlOwl Posts: 175Member
    @verdigris well thanks for posting ...good to know some are still around :)

    been using v2 since 2011 off and on - finally off analog for 5 weeks as of the new series 3 - steady as she goes - not super happy so far - I am thinking they may have released too early....allot of issues. But, Ill stay committed - V2 helped me quit - period.

    Just popped in today to check the same thing. I am 4 years smoke free today. Also quit ecigs and vaping about 2.5 years ago as well.

    welcome to the forum @lharv01 and congrats on 4 years!
  • lharv01lharv01 Posts: 6Member

    I tell everyone that V2 saved my life , even my Dr. is a believer.


  • samanthasamantha Posts: 3,097Administrator, Moderator admin
    I have heard similar sentiments from other vapers interactions with their primary doctors. It really makes me wish more broad studies would be done with an open mind to see how ecigs are changing/effecting former smokers lives. Glad to have you here in the forum @lharv01! :)

    Started with V2 April 25, 2012. I've since moved on but owe EVERYTHING to V2 and still "sing their graces" to current smokers.

    I've been here since 2011 and am definitely beginning to question why! Between the added fees, no more coupon codes, and little to no stock on what I have been vaping for years...I can't help but wonder what has happened to V2.

  • samanthasamantha Posts: 3,097Administrator, Moderator admin
    Hey @ewinget - Whew, you have me beat! I have only been around since late 2013:) Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate your long-term loyalty and hope we can keep you in the forum and vaping V2. To help sustain business, we have made some revisions to our business model and pricing. This is all done in an effort to make and offer the best vapor products in the industry. It also allows us to put significant $$s into R&D so we can create products like the S3, S3X and S7. The coupon codes are def something many of our veteran customers are struggling with and I completely understand. I hope you were able to take part in our annual Memorial Day Sale! We do big store wide sales that ideally are a great opportunity to stock up AND earn some savings. Are you signed up for our newsletter and weekly emails? We do weekly sales as well.

    Been around since 2011. I'm still using V2 menthol juice and read the comments on forum sporadically. I remember all the fun with Jackie O and others competing for menthol and how the taste changed. I'm still baffled at how frequently they run out of it. Always hopeful things will improve.

    Hi there @ChinaBaby and welcome back to the forum! We're glad to have you lurking and commenting:)
    Ah, I do remember in our much earlier year's menthol outages... I will say inventory has gotten much more streamlined and better but unfortunately, there are so many variables with the industry and it's hard to get inventory perfect. We are constantly improving our processes to get more efficient. I'm glad you are still using V2 Menthol e-liquid. We have added MANY more eliquids since 2011... so if you feel like being adventurous, check them out on our Sale and eliquid pages:)

    Hello V2, Its been a while. Smoke free since 11/11/11 and nicotine free since 10/13. Thank you V2! Good luck to all of you.
  • samanthasamantha Posts: 3,097Administrator, Moderator admin
    Hey @dB! Welcome back to the V2 forum and major congrats on almost 6 tears! Good luck and thanks for sharing! Hope all is well and we're glad to have V2 veterans back in the forum:)

    I peek in every once in a while, but I'm anything but a regular.  I quit two days after dB, 13-Nov-11, and have been vaping exclusively ever since.  Made a lot of friends here, back then, a few of which I remain in contact with.  

    Peeking in as I do makes me feel good.  This was the first vaping forum I ever knew, and that concept helped propel me to success.  I'll never smoke again, and that is a certainty.  

    So, thank you, V2, for being one of the most essential pieces of my transition, back when I needed you most.  :-)


  • samanthasamantha Posts: 3,097Administrator, Moderator admin
    Hey @dplongo22 - Welcome back and thanks for sharing! And congrats on making such a huge lifestyle change... I'm glad our forum and V2 vapor products were able to help:)

    This forum is a great asset for many newbies and seasoned vapers alike:)

    Are you still using V2 products these days? Let me know if I can assist with anything at all. 

  • dplongo22dplongo22 Posts: 184Member ✭✭
    Thank you, Samanta.  I am not still, but back in 2011-12, it was somewhat standard to move on to stronger things.  The industry has changed though, and I see that V2 is now offering up some pret-ty nice stuff, on par with the higher ends (for those who desire it).  

    I also know that without the V2 product and forum, I'd have failed.  It wasn't my first stab at vaping, but it did turn out to be my last.   Quality products, quality people & support.  

    Two thumbs UP.  :-) 
  • samanthasamantha Posts: 3,097Administrator, Moderator admin
    Thanks for the nice feedback! Glad V2 could help you out;)
