Find out where you can find the cheapest k cup for Keurig and save money on your coffee, without making any changes to your usual coffee routine.
People love Keurig coffee makers for their convenience and a huge number of k cup options. But, there’s no arguing – using k cups is more expensive than using ground coffee.
Luckily, good cheap k cups aren’t actually that hard to find.
In today’s post, you’ll find out where you can find the cheapest k cup for Keurig. You’ll also learn some easy money-saving tips to try to help you make smarter choices. You’ll still enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, I promise.
Buying k cups in bulk
A great way to get k cups for cheap is to buy them in bulk. Good places for this are Costco, Sam’s Club, and Amazon.
Sam’s Club and Costco
These retailers have great k cup prices. For example, 100 ct Original Donut Shop k-cup box retails for $47.00 at Sam’s club ($0.47 each) and you can get Maxwell House Breakfast blend k-cups for $34.98 ($0.35 each).
One of my favorite shopping sites because they have basically every brand available and shipping is free on most items for orders over $25, or with Amazon Prime.
Normally you can get Keurig branded k cups for less than $0.45 per cup when you buy in bulk. You can also get other brands for only $0.30 per cup. That’s almost like the price of regular coffee prepared with a classic drip coffee maker. Here’s a round-up of the cheapest Keurig k cups on Amazon:

Save on k cups at Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond
I stock up when I have a 20% or 30% coupon and the k cups are on sale at Kohl’s. Many of the Kohl’s coupons can be used online, and you will often get free shipping with a code or purchase amount.
When on sale, you can get an 18ct box for $11.99. Combine this with a coupon, Kohl’s cash, and free shipping and you can sometimes get them for $0.35 each.
You can also get a good deal at Bed, Bath & Beyond with a 20% coupon.
Save at the grocery store
If you aren’t hooked on a particular brand, shop the clearance racks.
So far, I have found some amazing deals on clearance. Also, if you get a k cup coupon, save it – just in case. A coupon can save you from $0.50 to $1.50 per box, so it’s a good thing to have one even if you don’t normally use coupons.
But, don’t forget to check the expiration date on the box.
Tips for saving money on k cups
1. Buy k cups in bulk. As mentioned, this is the best option that will provide the lowest possible price, especially if you know your favorite brand and you drink that coffee all the time.
2. Choose small packages when buying coffee for the first time. How do you know you’re not just wasting $40 on something you won’t like? Get a small box first or get a sampler pack to make sure you like the flavor before spending money on a 100 ct box.
3. At the grocery store, always check the expiration date on the box. If the k cups are close to the expiration date, they’ll probably be on sale. Buy only as much as you can drink before the date expires.
4. Use coupons. A coupon can save you $0.50 – $1.50 per box. Check coupon sites or store websites.
5. Compare clearance price and regular price. Don’t get a 100 ct box of k cups just because the sign says it’s a great price. Compare clearance price with the regular price and then decide will the deal really save you money.
Reusable k cups
Switching to a reusable filter is one of the best things you can do for your wallet but also for the environment. When you use a reusable k cup filter and ground coffee, it costs around $0.20 to make a cup of coffee. That’s 50% – 65% savings compared to the usual price of one k cup. However, using reusable k cups is less convenient than using regular k cup coffee.
While a few dollars of savings here and there might not seem like a lot they’ll add up.
According to the National Coffee Association survey, the average American coffee drinker drinks 3 cups of coffee per day. So, paying a k cup 35 cents instead of 70 cents should save you $30 every month. That’s $360 a year without making any changes to your coffee routine.
Of course, that’s for one person. If you have two coffee drinkers in your household you can save a lot more than that. Plus, it requires almost no effort.
