We originally purchased our Keurig Brewing System because we loved the convenience that it offered! It seemed like the perfect way to quickly make one cup of coffee at a time – which is something that goes on a good bit around here! However, with convenience oftentimes comes expense, so we have learned a few things about How Keurig Users Can Save Money!

The number-one way we save is buy skipping the K-Cups altogether! So what do we do instead? We use the reusable My-K Cup Filter along with disposable coffee filters. You can simply fill the reusable My-K Cup Filter with your favorite coffee grounds, but each time we make a cup of coffee this way, we like to also use the disposable coffee filters. This most definitely limits the mess and makes this option almost as convenient as using a K-Cup!
While using the reusable/disposable accessories has been great, sometimes we do like to splurge and try some of the yummy flavored K-Cups you can buy! Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find a great deal on them…and I most definitely like to wait until I can get the very best price! So, I thought I would share with you a few of the places where I have scored deals on these little cuties:
Let’s Go Shopping:
Harris Teeter – Watch your eVic e-mails! There is usually at least one brand of coffee pods on sale each week. (Make sure you are signed up for these “undercover deals”.) New products will oftentimes have coupons available on-line as well (Check coupons.com or the brand’s Facebook page!), which only means extra savings!
Target – When it comes to finding a K-Cup deal at Target, I will describe my method using a simple equation:
Sale Price + Coupon + Cartwheel App + iBotta App + Target Red Card Savings = An Ahhmazing Deal!
If you are not using the Cartwheel app, please, please, please don’t wait to sign up for it! You will thank me later – I promise! It’s my hubby’s favorite app – Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!
Kohls/Elder Beerman – I have heard that some stores have stopped allowing customers to use in-store coupons on K-Cups. Be sure to check the policy at your local store!
Sam’s Club & Ollie’s – These two stores offer bulk-sized boxes of K-Cups, so be sure to keep an eye out there as well!
Have you tried the system that will also brew a pitcher of coffee? If so, I would love to hear what you think of it!
