Those who own pod-style brewers, such as Keurig machines, know that the costs of these low-initial-price machines can add up over time, through the purchase of the proprietary pods. While Keurig doesn’t have the highest price per pod out of all manufacturers, it’s still worth looking for the best place to buy your K-Cups, if you’re looking to save a little money.
Of course, your lowest-cost option will always be to use reusable K-Cups, such as the Ekobrew Refillables [ASIN B0051SU0OW] with optional paper filters [ASIN B00H4F3A88]. This will remove some of the convenience of a pod brewer, though – so we’ve compiled a list of other great K-Cup varieties that are available at a lower cost.
Directly from Keurig
When you register your Keurig coffee maker through the Keurig website at www.keurig.com, you will receive a “welcome” coupon that allows you to receive free shipping and a 10% discount on all future purchases. You will need your Keurig’s serial number to register your unit, which will allow you to activate discounts offered from Keurig directly.
Additionally, Keurig occasionally offers promotional coupons for new registrations, such as “buy two, get two free”. This would allow you to buy 4 boxes of Keurig K-Cups for the price of two boxes. This is currently the least expensive option we’ve found; however, this promotional coupon will only work once, and subsequent orders will be more expensive.
So, what to do when your promotional coupon has already been used, and you still need more coffee?
Amazon is one of the leading retailers for a wide variety of products, and the ability to “subscribe & save” adds even greater convenience and savings to your future purchases. We’ve collected a few of our favorite variety packs below.
