Does anyone know what the regular price is?

@andybs22: Whatever it is, if the price works out to more than about $0.40/serving, I pass. I can get K-cups at Costco for about that price.

@cerote, do they carry starbucks there? And is that .40 a piece a new price point? I thought in the past .50$ was the cheapest you could get them at costco/BJs.

I find that the starbucks kcups are usually about a dollar more expensive than the regular brands like green mountain. Recently saw the starbucks ones on sale at walmart and bought some, and they do taste better than those cheaper lines.

Everybody has their preferences and prejudices, however 99.9% of the k-cup world would buy Starbucks at 41¢, 45¢, 50¢, 55¢, etc per serving. This could end up not a great deal, but it is 100% worth getting to the store Thurs and checking out the details!
Thanks for posting it!

I was in SB over the weekend and I'm pretty sure they charge 12.95 for a 12 pack of k-cups. So 12.95 for 24 would be about .55 a cup. If they have larger sizes (like the 18's) this might bring it down, but I didn't see them locally anyway.

The lowest price on the cheapest k-cup brand at Costco/Sam's Club (in my area--Southeast US) is $0.40/cup. But, the lowest price on bulk-pack Starbucks brand k-cups at Costco/Sam's Club was around $0.65 last time I checked.

This deal applies to the 12-pack, which costs around $12. So, with the promo, you get 24 cups for $0.50 each. There are cheaper k-cups (see above or off-brands on Amazon.com for about $0.40/cup), but if you are stuck on Starbucks brand, this is a good deal. Plus, you don't have to buy in bulk, meaning you can try different blends without the risk of getting stuck with a 2-month supply of a blend you don't care for.

Of course, this promo is a lead to get you into the store (note that this promo is not valid at Starbucks's online store) in hopes you buy a $6+ latte along with the k-cups... at which point your total spending would offset the savings entirely.

In order to compare brands "apple to apple" look at the small print on the side of the box that lists the Net Weight. You will find that there is considerably less coffee in the "cheaper" k-cups. When you consider how much actual coffee you're getting, the Starbucks k-cups are quite in line with all of the others price-wise.

@quadconpana: The net weight isn't really relevant here. It's not like coffee grounds where you're going to get more use out of more grounds. A single cup gets you a single serving, no matter how much coffee they pack in there. The best you'll get is a stronger cup.

vote-for1vote-against

it just depends on your preference and how much you want a particular brand of coffee. i'm pretty close to naming my unborn child verona because i like the coffee so much, so i'll hit up this deal. (i was mostly joking.) otherwise, if you register your keurig brewer online you get great deals through their website, and i'll keep buying the green mountain dark magic blend.

just got a keurig as a wedding gift, i love it!

In Oregon I can get Tully's at our costco for $0.40 a cup the starbucks is in the $0.55 range (as I recall). I think Tully's is as good if not better than Starbucks. I can't figure out why they are so expensive. I did hear Starbicks is releasing there own Keurig like machine soon. They will probably make the cost on those packs lower to attract people to their machine.

vote-for0vote-against

thats their own not there

vote-for-4vote-against

i dont see the point in worrying about .55 vs .40 or whatever. you use keurig's for convenience, not savings considering the brewers cost 4x more than a decent coffee maker

Is the price of these going down now that Keurig's patent is expiring?

Went on their web site and their K-Cups are listed at $19.99 for 24 cups. Still not bad for buy-one-get-one-free. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer Dunkin over SB. I buy the coffee I like and then just reuse the cups. Just have to buy the lids....

vote-for2vote-against

@synergynt: I disagree. Our K machine has 3 cup size settings, Sm, Med and Large and when you use Large you can tell its more watered down than the Med setting using the same cup. So a Large with a higher weight will produce a stronger brew than a large with a lower weight.

I've been buying the San Fransisco Bay K-cups through Amazon. I get free 2 day shipping every two months. The price comes out to $31.35 for 80 k-cups if you sign up for auto-ordering. Cheapest I have found and the coffee is pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/San-Francisco-Bay-Coffee-36-Count/dp/B006IOKA84/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348720435&sr=8-1&keywords=san+francisco+bay+k-cups

Stopped by my local Starbucks on the way to work. They had their K-Cups priced at $11.95 for 12. I bought three, got three free. Total before tax: $35.85 for 72 K-Cups. I was looking out the rear view mirror for cops as I drove off with my stolen loot.

@casper42: It seems we don't actually disagree at all...

@j647: These come (or did) with some models of Keurig brewers. You have to make sure you get a good seal on the screw cap. I had one that leaked everywhere. I honestly find it to be too much of a hassle with the cleanup. I use my Keurig for the convenience as well as not wasting coffee. Using the My K-Cup takes away the convenience for me. YMMV

Well I tried all around the Nashville, TN area and they all said that promotion is no good here.

Starbucks @ 35th & State in Chicago charge $9.95 for a box of 12. Woot!
