Cheap Condoms, are they better? Are Inexpensive Discount condoms Safe?

Cheap Condoms, are they better? Are Inexpensive Discount condoms Safe?

Cheap condoms are popping up all over the internet.

With so many inexpensive condoms flooding the market, customers and safe sex practitioners are worried about the safety and quality of these discount condoms,  America's Condom Superstore addresses these concerns.

So the question is "are cheap condoms safe?" Well, I guess you could say "cheap" is a relative term. I mean what do you consider cheap? There are bargain condom deals and then there are plain old Cheap Manufactured condoms from China like you find on Ebay or Amazon.

At RipnRoll, First of all we don't sell ANY condoms from China. In the 25+ years we have been selling condoms, we have seen more recalls from discount condoms made in China than from anywhere else. Condoms made in Japan, now that's a different story. Japanese condoms are some of the highest quality, safest condoms we carry. Japanese condoms are definitely not cheaply made but you can find them at a cheap price in many cases. So the answer to the question is kind of twofold. You can buy inexpensive condoms that are safe, but you can also buy cheaply made condoms that are not as safe due to the low manufacturing standards and low quality. Fortunately the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulates all condoms imported into the US and most of the condoms you buy here must adhere to the FDA standards set forth in the US.

Buying Condoms Online in Bulk.

A good way to buy condoms safely and at a big discount is to buy condoms online in bulk. There are many online condoms stores like that sell good quality condoms at a very low price. The trick to buying in bulk is to purchase condoms in higher quantities like a 100 pack or even a case of 1000 condoms. When buying 1000 condoms or more, you can regularly see prices as low as $0.08 cents per condom as with our Ultrashape condoms.

What to look for when buying cheap or inexpensive condoms.

First and foremost, any condoms you are looking to purchase should be FDA approved. There is a reason these standards are in place and FDA approved means the condoms have been randomly tested on top of the strict guidelines the manufacturers must adhere to. Secondly, make sure the condoms you purchase are fresh with long expiration dates. All condoms manufactured have exp dates of 5 years and 3 years for condoms with spermicide. Rip n Roll does not carry any condoms that contain spermicide due to findings by the Centers for Disease Control (read more here) and most all of our condoms have at least a 3 year exp date. We rotate our inventory on a monthly basis.

At RipnRoll we buy our condoms by the truckload which means we can pass on the discounts to our customers. At RipnRoll you will find great condoms prices and we pride ourselves in quality products. We do not sell cheap (low quality) condoms and we will discontinue a product if we feel it is below our quality standards.

Who buys cheap condoms and how do they find them?

Most cheap condoms (inexpensive condoms) are purchased by health cares, hospitals, Military, Universities and women's centers. These companies buy in large quantities and therefore get large discounts. Many of the largest discounts are given to Non-Profit Organizations. The more you buy, the more the discounts. Although most people do not want to buy millions of condoms, most anyone can take advantage of bulk rate discounts. We sell almost all of our condoms in cases of 1000 to the general public. If you are looking for larger quantities of condoms, email us at and ask for our wholesale pricelist. To buy wholesale you will need to be a registered business with a valid Fed Tax ID number. If you are looking for a cheap condom with high qulity standards, we would recommend looking at our Crown condoms or our Ultrashape condoms.  Another great place to buy condoms in bulk is on our condom assortments page.

If you need assistance with buying in bulk please visit our wholesale condoms page or call and speak to one of our customer service reps at 1-888-747-6765
