How to Save on K-Cups for Your Keurig

For Christmas, my mom got me a Keurig, which my entire family is madly in love with.  But, after we flew through one box of coffee and two boxes of hot chocolate shockingly quick, I started to realize this was going to be costly.

K-Cups can cost anywhere from $0.70-$1 per cup, but average around $0.89.  I’ve found that anything less than $0.50 each is a good deal, but I’ve been picking them up for as low as $0.40-$0.49 each.  Sometimes, I’m even lucky enough to find them lower!

I’ve found a few ways to save on K-Cups, but I’d love to hear your own thoughts too!

Watch Clearance. Almost everyone sells K-Cups now, so check the clearance section whenever your out shopping. I’ve found a few on clearance at amazing prices and with the K-Cup coupons found online and in newspapers, it’s an even better deal!  I’ve heard that Bed, Bath, & Beyond is a great place to find K-Cup deals, but I often find mine at Target and Kohl’s.

Amazon.com. I’ve found the best prices for K-Cups on Amazon when you buy in bulk.  First, I can use my SwagBucks and Superpoints to get FREE Amazon gift cards to help cut my costs, plus if you watch for Subscribe & Save deals that give you an extra 15% percent off, you can save even more.  Remember to cancel the Subscribe & Save order though or you’ll be charged each month.  Remember to aim for ones that offer FREE shipping and consider an Amazon Prime membership.

Register Your Keurig. My brother just found out recently that if you register your Keurig online, you’ll get a really great buy two, get two FREE coupon to help save.  It ended up to be a great deal for him and my mom, so I can’t wait to try this.

Reusable K-Cups. Invest in a reusuable K-Cup to use with your favorite coffee.  This has cut my costs by more than half, so it’s well worth the investment.  Basically, it’s a tiny coffee filter that fits right into your Keurig turning it into a standard coffeemaker.  (P.S. the Ekobrew cups are on sale right now, which is what I have and love!)

Don’t be Brand Loyal. Unfortunately, that’s hard for some, but when it comes to K-Cups, keeping an open mind can save you the most.  Try new brands and flavors as you find them on sale and make note of your favorites to watch for deals.

How are you saving on your K-Cup purchases?

I buy most of mine at BB&B with a 20% coupon, Kohl’s when they’re on sale + a coupon will make them about equal to BB&B with a coupon. The other place I was surprised that carries them is Staples, usually $11.99 which is fairly comparable price-wise.

I have one of the reusable K-cup filters but maybe I’m not installing it right because it leaks everywhere!

Christmas Tree Shops and Big Lots are two good places to get K-cup deals sometime.
