As a tobacco retailer, you might have put promotions on the back burner, assuming they’re not essential for selling tobacco, cigars, and vapes. However, here’s the truth – promotions can be a game-changer for your smoke shop, driving foot traffic and increasing sales! Consumers love feeling like they’re getting a good deal, so let’s explore some tobacco-specific promotions that will help you tap into this potential and grow your business.

Buy One Get One (BOGO) Promos

Embrace the classic BOGO promotion to entice customers. Offer enticing combinations like buy two packs of cigarettes, get one free, or buy one case of cigars, get one at 50 percent off. Get creative and cater the deals to suit your smoke shop’s unique offerings.

Mix and Match Deals

Spice up your product selection by introducing mix and match promotions. Allow customers to create their own bundles of cigars, vape flavors, or other products at a discounted rate. It’s a fun way for them to try new items and discover new favorites.

Membership Incentives

Consider running a promotion to entice customers to join your VIP club. Reward sign-ups with perks like exclusive event invitations, discounts on their first purchase, or personalized gifts like custom-engraved ashtrays. Build a loyal customer base and keep them engaged with your business.

Customer Loyalty Programs

Implement a customer loyalty program to keep your patrons coming back for more. Offer first-time customers a discount when they provide their email address, giving you an effective communication channel. Create rewards tied to purchase thresholds, such as offering a free cigar after buying 10 in your smoke shop.

Seasonal Specials

Embrace the changing seasons and holidays by offering seasonal promotions. Create limited-time offers for special occasions like New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, or Independence Day. Consider themed discounts, bundled packages, or exclusive seasonal flavors for vapes or cigars. Seasonal specials not only boost sales but also add excitement and novelty for your customers, encouraging them to return to your smoke shop for each unique experience.
