Buy Cigarettes Online: The Stores Victims Of Their Success


Sint-Maarten, Netherlands Antilles - January 18, 2011 – The online cigarettes stores, becoming more popular every time the taxes go up, are creating a huge hole in the taxes collected from the cigarettes because of the rising number of smokers now buying their cigarettes online to save money.

“We are functioning differently that most of today’s businesses: when we learn that taxes on cigarettes will be going up, we know that we will sell more and that business will be good. Usually, taxes going up are good news for no one. Except for us! It is sad to say, but it is true: the worst the economy will be (and the higher the taxes on tobacco), the more people will buy cigarettes from us,” says Jorge Hedgar, manager of a famous discount online cigarettes store exporting duty-free cigarettes worldwide.

To buy cigarettes online, people have three major choices:

The first is buying cigarettes from sites based on Indian reserves (where the cigarettes can be legally sold tax-free) but with today’s “war” against discount cigarettes sellers, buying from such stores isn’t safe anymore because many of those stores will report the names of the buyers to the national taxes bureau right after the sale is made because of pressure put by the government. Even if on Indian reserves, these stores are still based on the national US territory and have to comply with US law.

The second (and most popular) way to do is to buy cigarettes from online stores based in countries where the cigarettes are sold tax-free such as many Caribbean islands (like and other “fiscal paradises”. Anyone living in the USA can buy cigarettes from theses sites for less than $ 20 per carton of 200 cigarettes made in USA (normally reserved to be sold outside the US). That represent a saving of over 70% off the regular price. It is easy to understand where the popularity of those sites come from. They are selling exactly the same cigarettes, but for a lot less than the price it is normally bought by the smoker everyday.

The third and last one is to buy cigarettes from stores selling east-European made cigarettes that are extremely low cost but of very low quality and often, people say that they are so disgusting to smoke that they won’t buy cigarettes from such stores anymore. It is not rare to see prices as low as $ 9 for a carton of 200 cigarettes on those sites and that’s what makes the bargain-hunter fall for them. It is recommended to avoid smoking those “fakes” because no one is sure of what they are exactly made of and it could be of products even more dangerous than the ones known to be used in regular cigarettes. So beware of “east-European made” cigarettes (coming from Poland, Russia, Ukraine usually).

Because it is quite easy for the US government to influence Indian reservation sellers, as they have to comply with national laws; and that the east-European cigarettes are victim of their poor quality and of a very negative word-of-mouth, the main concern today is the sites of the second category, that are outside of the jurisdiction and so, impossible to control. Also they can’t force such companies to report the names of the buyers.

“A lot of clients send us letters to thank us for the amount of money they were able to save thanks to us and we feel that we are not doing a bad thing by helping honest citizens saving their hard-earned money instead of paying ridiculously high taxes,” says Jorge Hedgar, from
