NEW Factsheet: Point-of-Sale Tobacco Pricing

Disparities, Little cigars/Cigarillos, Minimum pack size, Minimum price, Non-Tax Price Increases, Price Promotions, Product Packaging

Raising the price of tobacco products is an effective, evidence-based strategy for decreasing tobacco use and tobacco-related harm. Research also suggests that these strategies may help promote health equity by countering pernicious industry targeting and reducing tobacco-related health disparities.

In partnership with ChangeLab Solutions we created this new fact sheet and infographic for local and state tobacco control advocates who are looking to enact point-of-sale (POS) tobacco pricing policies and improve community health and equity. The POS pricing approaches covered in these resources include:

  • Minimum floor price laws for all tobacco products
  • Minimum pack sizes for little cigars and cigarillos
  • Prohibiting coupons, price discounts, and promotions

Point-of-sale pricing policies are innovative tobacco control solutions that can reduce health disparities, counteract industry targeting, and encourage users to quit.
