How can I save £80 a month by switching to ZYN®?
Here’s what we used to work this out:
- How many cigarettes do people smoke a day? Obviously, everyone’s different, so we take the average: 12.8**. We compare this to 12.8 nicotine pouches to keep things simple.
- How many packs of cigarettes/nicotine pouches do people buy a month? We work this out based on the average consumption. Note, we’re using ZYN® Cool Mint 9MG for comparison, with 16 pouches in each can. Every other ZYN® comes in cans of 20 – so you’d save even more with another flavour or strength.
