    Not sure if this is in the right spot.
    I'm in Wisconsin and pay anywhere between 7 to 9 dollars for a pack of cigarettes depending on where I go. In Vegas I usually walk to the gas station on the corner by Ellis Island and find what I need for way cheaper than home. Anyone know of any places on or not too far from the strip that has decent prices?

    There is a smoke shop/snack store across the street from the rear parking lot of the Gold Coast.(As far as I know,I have not been in over a year,but it's been there awhile) It's in a mini-mall with some female only massage place..Prices were exactly what I pay in FL or cheaper..(Under $7 for sure)...
    Kinda crazy place as it is a head shop also..Gas Mask bongs I had never even heard of before and lots of pipes etc in the counters..Felt safe in the daytime but paid cash and did not use a debit card.Stopped there quite a few times.

    If you go to the GC webcam and do a 180 from the Palms you will see the mini-mall.Just focus on rear parking lot..

    Thanks for the info , but I won't be going that far. I don't go to Rio or Gold Coast anymore. I'm looking for mid strip..or not far off.

    Last time I was at stage door cigarettes were almost 10 dollars a pack. I walked a few blocks further to get smokes for just over 6 dollars a pack.

    Might be the oddest first message I ever seen. Why didn't he just take them?

    Go to the Las Vegas Paiute Smoke Shop/Mini Mart on N. Main St. (N. Las Vegas just north of Washington St.)... it's where MANY locals go.

    A guy looking to save a couple of bucks on smokes isn't going to take a $30 cab ride to head north of Downtown.

    Pretty much anywhere is cheaper than where I live! I would second the smoke shop idea, though.

    Well I am sure it is a little more than a buck.

    Just paid $4.52 a pack in West Virginia yesterday. West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia have the lowest prices in the country. Since the WV border is 20 miles south of my house one cannot beat the prices compared to $6.90 a pack in Pennsylvania. I rarely if ever run short of smokes in Vegas I take a carton plus a few loose packs. But if I need to buy I go to the gas station on Flamingo up from Ballys, they seem to have the lowest prices.

    Both describing the Arco at Flamingo and Koval. I usually bring from home, but now curious to check their prices since I go to Ellis Island at least once per trip. Pall Mall unfiltered are just under $8 here in FL.

    Within the US? Yes. For other destinations, check their regulations. Typically, regular cigarettes aren't a safety hazard (like e-cigs can't be checked...) but matches/lighters are regulated.

    Always always always check with the proper authorities :)

    $16/pack at the Mirage gift shop.

    Casino Royale has a machine that is significantly cheaper and convenient.

    I always bring home a few cartons. Cigarettes are $12 in NYC, so the savings is phenomenal.

    There's a small smokeshop on Las Vegas Blvd walking towards the MGM from Planet Hollywood. I can't remember the name of the place but you can't miss it it's in a strip mall on the BLVD usually where all motorcycles park (hopefully you know what I'm talking about). I have a hazy memory but I bought a battery pack for my vape here for about $15 and my buddy bought some Marlboro Menthols for about $7.
