I am a big coffee fan and I fairly confident that I am not alone. While I always look for great deals on travel, I also look for deal on my day to day purchases. I drink coffee daily, so finding a great deal on it is something I value :-). This is a solid K Cup deal for all you coffee drinkers out there.
Deal: Buy K-Cups for 18 Cents a Cup
This deal was around last year and it seems to be a reoccurring theme. While there is no guarantee of this continuing next year, I confident it will come around again.
Over at the Christmas Tree Shop, they are currently selling 42 K-Cups for $9.99
There are plenty of flavors to choose from as well. I personally drink this brand and I think it is really good!
The Christmas Tree Shop always has this coupon where you can save $10 off $50 or more.
While this coupon says first time subscribers, I have received flyers and even just Googling the coupon comes up. I have yet to have an issue with using coupons at the Christmas Tree Shop.
In order to reach your $50 minimum, you will need to buy 5 boxes of K Cups, this will put you at $49.95. I live in a state with sales tax and there was no sales tax on this, so I bought a $1 pair of scissors to put me over the $50 requirement.
This meant I bought 210 K Cups for $41, costing me 19.5 cents per cup.
Making the Deal Better:
Always look for a way to stack deals! It is always worth it.
Over at Ebates, they have “In-Store” offers on cards you can link through your account.
If you don’t have an Ebates account, you can sign up using my referral link. You’ll earn $10 on your first purchase and I earn $25. If you use my link, thank you! It is always appreciated.
Currently Ebates is offering 4% cash back when you make an in-store purchase.
**When I made my purchase, I initially received 2%, not the 4% as the offer state. I did reach out and after sending my receipt and email, I received the 4%.**
This would also be in addition to your credit card rewards, which I used my USAA Limitless, where I earned 2.5% cash back as well. For my math breakdown, I will use 2% cash back though.
Calculating the Cost:
I have found most K Cups run between 30 cents to 50 cents+ (for brands like Starbucks, etc) per K Cup.
$49.95 (5 boxes of 42 count K-Cups) + $1 of something at the checkout = $50.95 – $10 coupon for spending $50 or more = $40.95 – $1.64 Cash back earned from Ebates – $0.82 from 2% cash back card.
Total cost is $38.49 for 210 K Cups, which brings the K Cup cost to 18.3 cents per cup. Which is very cheap for (what I feel) is good coffee.
Using 30 cents per K Cup as the lowest cost, this means you are saving 39% vs the lowest price K Cup ( I can usually find).
While this may not be a travel related purchase, if you drink coffee regularly the cost can add up.
I have taken advantage of this offer many times and it is always great to stock up on something you use day to day for cheap!
