Apollo to Give Away One Million Disposables

Yesterday, Apollo Electronic Cigarettes announced their giveaway totaling 1 million disposable e-cigarette units. While the page is advertised as “free electronic cigarette”, the company is still charging about $2 per request for a free disposable to likely recoup some shipping costs and more importantly to age verify the recipients.

Beyond that, the disposables are truly free, there aren’t a series of hoops to leap through. All one needs to do to is share this page on which the giveaway is hosted through various forms of social media and follow the steps to get the free disposable.

It’s my opinion that Apollo deserves some commendation for such an ambitious giveaway. Although some more advanced vapers might scoff at the performance of the typical disposable e-cigarette, if Apollo can truly give one each to a million people, odds are that many people could have this serve as their entry point or catalyst for making the switch. An even greater number will at the very least be educated on what e-cigarettes are in their most basic form and how they function.

When Blu Cigs was purchased by Lorillard earlier this year, many in the vaping community were excited at the sheer exposure of having e-cigarettes available in all the places Lorillard brands like Newport or Kent are sold. A giveaway of this size has the potential to create exposure on a comparable magnitude, and Apollo’s doing it at a potential loss. Good on them.

      Even at $2 anything that might give someone a shot at trying an ecig that might not give one a chance before is a good thing. This is great.

        I agree! In the long run it’ll get an alternative to analogs in the hands of many more people and just may help to save some lives! Bravo Apollo!

          O’m tempted to get one myself. Merely to hand out to friends who are hard headed(like i was) about making the switch from analogs.

            This is an amazing thing that Apollo is doing! To think of the number of lives that could be impacted by this is mind boggling! Even though it wasn’t “fabulous”, that first puff off of an ecig was all it took for me to realize that I could actually “do this”! I am sure that it will now be possible for LOTS of others do have that same feeling of WOW and then Triumph! I’ve got some applause and love for Apollo right now!

              I think what Apollo is doing is simply awesome! This could potentially help a MILLION people gather the courage to not buy that next pack of cigarettes!

              Kudos to Apollo!

                    Disposables aren’t exactly the type of thing I am into- but it is awesome than Apollo has been doing this. It is a perfect way to let a person interested try a e-cig. Great thing they are doing.

                      I think it’s great that their doing the give away because the people who have tried the gasstation blu have not really tried a true ecig or vaped. My sister had purchased blu cigs from a retailer and she said they were really bad, so I had her try my V2, she is now a v2 user and yesterday she tried my eGo (I took pictures) that was histerical!!! Needless to say, you haven’t vaped until you’ve used something other than those blu ecigs and Apollo is on the right track to grab a piece of the pie!!!!!
