We bought a Keurig a few months ago, and I love that thing. Since my Fiance doesn’t drink coffee, we really needed a single serve coffee maker. I look forward to curling up on the couch every morning with my cup of coffee and enjoy making hot chocolate with my Fiance on cold winter nights. However, K-Cups are REALLY expensive compared to coffee grounds. A typical box of K-cups could run you around $10 for a box of 6 cups! While finding a good deal on K-Cups is a challenge, there are ways to save money on them.
How to Save Money on K-Cups
Buy in Bulk
You can save big on your K-Cups by buying them in bulk. Amazon has really awesome deals on K-Cups that are often as low as $0.42 per K-Cup. If you have a membership to bulk warehouses such as BJ’s, Sam’s Club, or Costco, you can get really great deals on K-Cups there as well. During our free membership trial at Sam’s Club, we bought a 100 pack of Donut Shop K-Cups for just $45, which is only $0.45 per K-Cup! Please note that like all coffee, K-Cups DO expire so don’t buy more than you can reasonably drink.
Look for Coupons
During the colder months, you can almost always find a coupon for K-Cups. In just the past few months, I have seen coupons for Community, Starbucks, Green Mountain, and Eight O Clock Coffee, just to name a few. Recently, my Harris Teeter had a stock up sale on K-Cups where you could get 5 for $25. If you bring coupons as well, you could get some seriously cheap K-Cups!
Make your Own
Did you know you don’t have to buy K-Cups? I’m sure you’ve noticed that ground coffee is significantly cheaper than purchasing the Keurig Brand K-Cups. Instead of dishing out for the expensive K-Cups, make your own with this refillable K-Cup. When we first bought our Keurig, we made sure to get one of these. You can even pre-fill them and place them to give you the same morning convenience of the original K-Cups!
