1. Buy in bulk
- Cross Country Cafe: Cross Country Cafe has a great selection of bulk coffees for an excellent price. A recent Wacky Wednesday special on this site featured an 18-count box of Timothy’s German Chocolate Cake K-Cups for just $8.50. This equals to about $0.47 each. Now, that’s a price I could go for! The site offers weekly coffee deals, a flat rate of $8.00 for shipping, and free shipping when you spend $59 or more.
- Amazon: Buying bulk on Amazon is a cost-saving method that will yield K-Cups for less than $0.60 each. For example, a 50-count box of Green Mountain Coffee Breakfast Blend K-Cups are only $27.75 with Amazon Prime free shipping. In the past, I’ve also received a free Lipton K-Cup sampler (worth $3.99) with my order.
- Coffee for Less: Coffee for Less offers competitive pricing, and with their loyalty program, this is a great company to order bulk from. Folgers Vanilla Biscotti K-Cups are regularly priced at $13.99 for 24 servings on this site. That’s $0.58 per serving—an awesome deal. This site also offers free 2-day shipping with at least a $75 purchase or free shipping when you make at least a $45 purchase. I highly recommend Coffee for Less because of their loyalty program and price matching policy. Points can be accumulated and used toward future purchases. Shop through eBates and earn 2.5% cash back on your orders!
2. Use a reusable Keurig filter
- Gourmet coffee is typically sold in 12-ounce bags, yielding about 34 servings. A 12-ounce bag of Archer Farms Caramel Apple Coffee at Target is normally priced at $6.99. If you use a reusable Keurig filter, the average cost of a 6-ounce coffee serving is only $0.21!
3. Stock up when the price is right
Determine your purchase and stock-up price accordingly. I check my local ads each week to find which brands are on sale and if they’re within my purchase price of $0.60 per K-Cup. My local Harris Teeter recently featured Folgers K-Cups at $4.99 for a box of 12. At $0.42 per K-Cup, you bet I stocked up!
4. Sign up for newsletters
Remember, couponers combine coupons with local sales so savings are even bigger. A great place to look for coupons is inside your K-Cup box as well as in newsletters from your favorite coffee companies. Here are a couple of my favorite companies to receive newsletters from because they frequently include coupons:
- Folgers: Sign up for their Wakin’ Up Club to receive emails with promotions, coupons and news.
- Green Mountain: Sign up here to get free product samples, promotions and exclusive offers.
