High‐certainty evidence shows that providing incentives such as cash for abstinence (contingent rewards) or monetary incentives in the form of vouchers or more complex payment schedules to adult smokers from mixed populations improves smoking cessation rates at 6 to 24 months. However, quit rates were very low in both groups (70 vs 47 per 1000 people). In addition, some trials compared contingent reward and automatic reward groups, with the latter serving as the control group. Trials did not assess adverse events associated with incentives.
