That is good to know, I just bought a Custard from Vista Vapors, I also have some Butter cream from them as well, they mix them as ordered and put your name on the label.

That's a good reason to buy ahead of time and let them sit.

Yea I ordered a couple of items from vista...
It was the longest delivery I've ever seen,
I blame mostly the worthless post office for the delay which showed delivered when it in fact was not,
Took 4 weeks to actually receive this shipment
All of these places need other shipping methods available besides the worthless usps morons
As it stands I'll never order another item with usps as the only option
Which pretty much rules them all out as far as I can see,
Chatted with Vape wild located in Dallas Texas I might try them usps but no more from Vista.. via Minnesota that's just to freaking far away

That's interesting, I kind of prefer USPS, I usually get mine in a few days. 4 weeks would definitely turn me away too though, that's uncalled for, sounds like USPS misplaced it somewhere.

I like USPS because they can just leave it in my mailbox, I don't trust my neighbors enough to have UPS or FedEx just leave my stuff in front of my door.

I've ordered from a few different places, New York and Hawaii being the farthest.

The shipment was already 2 weeks overdue by the time I checked the shipping information as it said delivered :/
I raised hell at the post office all I got was ask the mail man
I replied I am this is usps isn't it ? you ask the freaking mail man a-holes
Week and a half later it was in my mail box,
I can't believe they said stalk the mailman and ask him/ her ?
Like the moron is going to remember a package 2-3 weeks after lol

Yeah, I guess I would be trying to avoid them too if I was getting that kind of treatment.

With that ThrashZone you may have had a subsitute on your route the day it was supposed to have arrived and either got forgotten about in the mail truck and buried under something or even delivered to the wrong address. Then if someone else caught the carrier and hands him or her back the vape mail you were expecting you see it arrive late.

The only problem I see with the USPS itself is being rather slow at updating the tracking while I've seen things come in days before the expected delivery date likely from lighter mail loads at those times. People send pms on social or emails these days even E-cards which can account for part of that. I've been finding a few vendors that were slower then molasses at getting orders out and didn't go back finding the same things sometimes priced better somewhere else.

One in particular was first found with a variety of colors for the tanks on the Tumbler but 2.4ohm coils while I was still ordering clear tanks from another place with the 2 ohm instead. Finally when hearing complaints from a contact about one place I gave them a look and found they had them in the color selections as well as coming with 2ohm coils while I wouldn't order replacements of Smok coils from them or a number of vendors $2 a pop when I can order 25 or more for only $1.59. I stocked up!on those when finding that place! for reference: SMOK Replacement Bottom Coil Heads

Those places ship and the vape mail is in two days later. The iStick was ordered friday and in yesterday from a vendor in Tenessee while if I order from a place in Florida it takes a day or two longer. The more bulk centers found in a state will often effect how fast an order comes in from a vendor located there especially when the PO picks up the orders to soon go to a sorting facilty close by to where the vendor is and not need to wait for a small town's mail to arrive cross state in some place to be sorted and shipped out from there. Generally the USPS has been reliable and preferred over Fed-X.

As for Vista Vapors they're on the Top 5 US vendors list as well as Mt Baker and Crystal Canyon Vapes making the list in a year's time. They are one of the few that actually carries PG and VG separately or in a blend you specify for doing some DIYing mixing of your own. From there you can order the flavoring and nicotine separately from other places while I be looking at a menthol pg/vg base to start with and then make up several mixes with a variety of flavors to see what will work out. You get the idea of how much or how little with small test samples before getting it right. Someday maybe!

Those steep times sometimes aren't an issue with some vendors.

Some only ship Pre-steeped and ready to vape. Then mark as sold out or unavailable untill the next batch is ready.
Others will just ship fresh regardless to keep up with demand.

So each vendor is a bit different in how they do things. Something to look into possibly. Most of the bigger, more reputable vendors that have been around awhile steep ahead of time. but not all of them.

Nicoticket for example tells you. Either its already been aged and good to go, or shelf it when you get it for 2 weeks etc.
Look at this particular E-Juice, and look at the comments section:
http://www.nicoticket.com/strawnilla/

Notice the Mixed On and ready to vape dates? Thats the kinda stuff you want to look for or find out.

They are one of the few that give all that info though.

Now that is how they all should post the details, you can tell the difference.

There are endless stores out there it seems, that's the first one I've seen so professionally detailed like that.

That is why I prefer to walk in a store and by it. I have looked and found several others in the area. I will start going by them and checking out what they have. As far as steeping time if needed, I will just stock up and let it steep.

I stopped at my usual today to pick up a few coils, it was Jamacian Rum juice (Jamaican Rum Eliquid from Ion Vapor ) I got last time, they just renamed it to Rasta Juice I guess.

I'm going to get the Kahula one next ( Kahlua Cream Eliquid From Ion Vapor )and try the Monkey juice ( Monkey Juice Eliquid from Ion Vapor ) then start from some other stores. I am enjoying the variety.

I'm four weeks in now, not counting my slip at 48hrs, and the breakdown due to lack of hardware last week. I'm still looking at other kits since I couldn't get the sid yesterday. I will just wait and catch a deal soon

I wasn't impressed very much with the higher prices the SID gets when going to look over a number of VV/VW devices. So far I kind of have a liking for the Eleaf iStick despite not having separate wattage and voltage modes but displays both at the same time only changing which is the largest on the display.

The SID is more or less a different model name offering an 18350 battery tube you can use on the Smok ACE aluminum body version since that comes without the shorter battery tube. The gold color is also a bit off from the gold on the ACE as well that's priced about $35- on average unless you find a deal like the much lower price found for $30.90 compared the $48 seen at the vendor you posted. Dude. Smoktech SID

Even Newegg has started carrying ecigs as well as coffee urns and other diversities when browsing the catagories there. The Smoktech SID Kit was priced at $29.99 there. That's from having a market place available where other vendors sell through them. Here I spent more time browsing and price shopping the entire "Bing" web for more specific items in order to save $$$ for others at times as well as for my own use.
(Of course that's a way to have your head handed to you if you should something cheaper that a reviewer tags since they get paid by certain vendors for the reviews! )

Now if you have a specific price range I can generally point out some of the better deals once I have a specific item. For the basic starters kits while most places want upto $50 or more for the double battery eGo CE5 1100mah kits those are available for $19.95 at one NY vendor. A single battery with clearomizer and usb adapter I mentioned before on the thread is only $8. For different mods and variable batteries it seems for each one you need to find a different vendor in order to get the best price.
