they ran a groupon at the beginning of the year for an e-cigarette starter kit. about two weeks after placing my order I was informed that they didn't have the product to fulfill all their orders and expected to have the product by mid-february.

one month after my order I tried to contact customer service and received a generic email saying the product was still not in, it was expected by the end of February and that everyone who was waiting would be receiving a free disposable product.

just today I received my order almost two months later with no email confirmation, and that free item - never received it. and all I ever get from customer service is a generic response.

Sounds like your review should be targeted at Groupon, not Victory

I got my groupon and loved the product but i know as a retailer that groupon screws the companies they run deals on. Groupon actually has a bancruptcy department that handles companies that go bankrupt as a result of the groupon.

Groupon beats the company up, makes the company sell the prodcut for way less than their cost plus gets a huge margin and then doesn't pay the company for 90-120 days after the offer is over. All these poor companies end up spending 250,000 to run a groupon hoping that it will drive sales which it doesn't - what a sham.

I got the groupon and received my starter kit in 4 days!!

I absurdly LOVE it and it was way cheaper than the victory site, so I was thrilled, only thing I didn't like us that they get you hooked and the refil "butts" are kind of pricey... Other than that I love it and use it several time throught the day...

I have has no problems with leaking or charging mine works GREAT!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone!

Bought through groupon for $25 almost 3 months ago. Never recieved the product. No emails returned, calling them just gets you a recording.

Filed complaint with the BBB, to no avail.

Groupon says they are just running behind. That was over a month ago. Sorry 3 months is not acceptable.

Now fighting with groupon for a refund.

Went ahead a bought another product from a reputable company.

DO NOT BUY VICTORY ECIGS!!!

I got my "starter kit" within two weeks. That wasn't a problem. What was a problem was that the battery was dead and will not recharge with the included charger, and one of the cartridges was leaking "juice" (nice euphemism for a mixture of nicotine and anti-freeze, which is precisely what "juice" actually is) all over everything. The whole kit is a useless pile of Chinese made junk. They refused to replace the battery, instead stating that they want $20 to ship me a new one.

So, it's going into the trash where it belongs, and if anyone I know asks me about it, I'm going to tell them to try something else. At least the Blu and the Njoy that I also got samples of actually work, as opposed to this Victory crapola.

This is a terrible company and a *** product. I would avoid these people like the plague. Lord knows what's actually in this "juice" if the batteries and cartridges are such poor quality.

Well it has now been over TWO months after it was bought via groupon and they have never arrived. Calls, emails are ignored.

Stay away from from this company at all costs!

I am never using groupon again because of this as well.

Bought the free trial and loved the product. Wanted to continue with the platinum membership but suddenly in January 13 my orders were not filled and nothing arrived but to their credit they have not charged my credit card, so thats good.

However bought 2 more trial packs from weekly plus for $18,00 posrage not included for gifts to friends but they never arrived and Victory just keeps giving me a USA phone number and I kive in Australia. Weekly plus keeps giving me a TICKET but no answers to refunding my $18.00.

What the heck good is a TICKET when the bus isnt going anywhere. REALLY DISAPPOINTING.

I think I'm about to upset some of you who have actually purchased the Groupon deal in January 2013.

I saw the Groupon, looked up some reviews, decided it was worth it to buy one for my boyfriend who smokes. I purchased the Groupon, then proceeded to look up even more reviews when I discovered the Victory was actually doing their own promotional offer of a FREE starter kit with only a $0.01 verification fee and $4.99 for shipping. I immediately got my Groupon refunded and purchased two of these free starter kits. I know my cousin was worried about this being a scam and so to check my card for any fraudulent charges. I checked and there were none. I now enjoy my $5 Victory ecigs with my boyfriend (I'm not a habitual smoker but I will smoke menthols on occasion).

I ordered one tobacco (1.8% nicotine) flavored kit and a menthol (low nicotine, 0.8%). The tobacco was kind of disgusting but the menthol has a really nice and cooling flavor.

So if you purchased the Groupon price or actual Victory price, yeah it's a rip off. But I was fortunate enough to stumble upon the promotional offer so I am VERY happy with my purchase. :)

Took over a month to receive my groupon kit, too. I'm very satisfied with it, however. I figure they just got more Groupon orders than they expected...should have offered fewer kits.

same thing happened to me. I ordered on 1/7/13.

Emailed them on 2/5 to inquire of delivery, received a generic email to call customer service. I called on 2/6, was on hold for 20 minutes and was told my order was being shipped that Friday.

Nothing has been delivered. Isent Groupon a nasty email for poor vendor seclection based on false adversiting and failure to deliver a paid product

Don't bother with them! After 4 months I still haven't recieved what I paid for and their e-mail responses are robotic "call us". Seriously, stay away from these guys!

Same thing here, bought with group on on 12/31/12 over a month later no product. Emailed 6 times, left 4 messages with no response.

Spoke to someone once and my product didnt come when they said it would. You call LONG DISTANCE and there is a 40-70+ minute wait, it has an option to leave a message but have the time the mailbox is full and if you do leave a message they never call back. I tried writing and mailing a letter to there customer service today. I also have Group On trying to contact them also.

I dont want the product, I want my money back because I dont want to deal with this *** when I need to order refills.
