Starbucks Canada: Bring in Your Own Reusable Mug, Get a Free Tea or Coffee for Earth Day

Starbucks Canada: Bring in Your Own Reusable Mug, Get a Free Tea or Coffee for Earth Day

Happy Earth Day from Starbucks Canada! Visit a participating location today and get a free tea or coffee when you use your own reusable mug.

It’s Earth Day today. I’ll probably be commemorating the day doing Earthy crafts with my young son, or maybe digging out our garden plot if it doesn’t rain (c’mon Earth, don’t rain, I want to plant my garden on your special day!). But these activities require energy, and I could use a little more of it. Luckily for me, there’s a Starbucks at the end of my street and they’re offering free coffee for Earth Day.

To get your free coffee (or tea) all you have to do is bring your own reusable mug or tumbler into a Starbucks location. This freebie is only valid on Starbucks’ brewed coffees and teas, so you won’t be able to get anything fancy with caramel sauce or whipped cream or whatever else you like to throw into your beverage, just good old-fashioned basic coffee or tea. Which works out well for me, as that’s all I ever get from Starbucks.

The promotion mentions that this free offer is only available at “participating locations,” so hopefully it’s valid at mine. They’ve posted it to the Starbucks Facebook and Twitter accounts so it should be pretty widespread, but you can always call ahead to check if you don’t want to be disappointed. You can find contact information for Starbucks Canada locations with the store locator on their website.

You can take advantage of this offer all day today for Earth Day (April 22).

Burger King: Small Coffee is Just $0.25 Every Day

Burger King: Small Coffee is Just $0.25 Every Day

For a limited time you can enjoy small coffees for just $0.25, every day at Burger King restaurants.

Got a quarter? Then you can get a coffee! Seriously, what can you buy for a quarter these days — even pay phones (if you can find one) charge 50 cents for a phone call now. But at Burger King you can buy a small coffee with your quarter, or treat yourself and three friends for just a loonie (plus tax)!

I know other restaurants like McDonald’s often run free coffee promos, but while you’re waiting around for another one of those, why pay more than you have to? This Burger King offer is available at all participating Canadian locations right now. Though it’s worth noting that the fine print of the offer states that “price and participation may vary.”

The discounted price is valid on a small-sized coffee only, no refills. Burger King has improved their coffee with a new premium blend of 100% Arabica beans, so if you weren’t a fan in the past it’s a small investment to see if you like the new flavour! And if the cheap coffee isn’t enough to make it worth your while, you can also get a coffee-muffin combo for $1.59 right now.

Starbucks Canada Freebie: Find Your Perfect Roast – Free Coffee Samples

Posted by on March 27, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Starbucks Canada Freebie: Find Your Perfect Roast   Free Coffee Samples

How does a free Starbucks coffee sound? Sounds pretty good to me, so I’ll be heading to the Find Your Perfect Roast free coffee tastings at Starbucks this week!

I admit it, I’m a Starbucks addict. But I’m not a complicated one — I don’t go in for the drink orders that take a half hour to recite and cost as much as an entire meal. I just like good, strong, black coffee. And lots of it. So I’m pretty excited about this freebie.

Find Your Perfect Roast is a three-day event that will feature a free sample of a different Starbucks blend each day. It runs from Thursday March 27 to Saturday March 29 at participating locations (fingers crossed the location at the end of my street is participating!). Free beverages will be available from 2-3PM on each day, here’s what you’ll be sampling:

Thursday: Starbucks True North Blend. A Starbucks blend specifically for Canadians! This coffee is a more mellow “blonde roast” intended for everyday drinking. A nice, polite, Canadian way to start your free-coffee tasting.

Friday: Pike Place Blend. This one’s my favourite right now. It’s only a medium roast (I usually prefer dark), but it’s got a great rich flavour. According to Starbucks it features a “well-rounded blend of Latin American coffees with subtly rich flavours of cocoa and toasted nuts.” According to me, it keeps me sane and awake after a night of dealing with a fussy toddler who couldn’t sleep.

Saturday: Starbucks Tribute Blend. For your final free coffee, take it up a notch with this bolder spicy blend that combines four coffees for a full-bodied dark roast.

Keurig Canada Spring Savings: $5 Off 2 Boxes Of 24 K-Cups

Posted by on March 26, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Keurig Canada Spring Savings: $5 Off 2 Boxes Of 24 K Cups

Having just wrapped up their Mystery Savings promotion, it’s really quite surprising that Keurig would offer another great discount so soon! Yet for a bit over a week, you can save $5 on the purchase of two 24 K-Cup boxes.

Just this morning, my doorbell rang and lo and behold, my Keurig order had arrived only 3 days after I placed it. I was actually quite surprised to receive it that quick considering the last time I ordered, it took well over two weeks, although that could be explained by the fact that I ordered my k-cups smack dab in the middle of the holiday season.

For those of you who have yet to order k-cups online, the main thing to remember is that it’s much more advantageous than getting them at a grocery store. In-stores, most boxes come up to over $0.70 per k-cup, often even verging on $1 for just one, but at Keurig.ca, those same cups come up to $0.65 each (with the member discount that is automatically applied to every order).

With this promotion, however, you can get k-cups at just $0.55 each, which is definitely a much better price.

If you have yet to invest in the magic of Keurig brewers, then I suggest you use the Van Houtte coupon code I wrote about yesterday to get a Keurig K60 special edition brewing system for just $110.30 (reg. $118) or you can also use it on certain k-cups flavours that Keurig.ca doesn’t have.

Van Houtte Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Everything

Posted by on March 25, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Van Houtte Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Everything

If you’re a fan of Van Houtte coffee, then you’re going to love their most recent promotion! For a limited time, you can take advantage of this coupon code at Van Houtte to save 15% off everything from k-cups, to beans and even brewers.

Click here to shop @ VanHoutte.com now

  • Coupon Code: SPRING15
  • Discount: 15% off
  • Expiry: 3rd April 2014

This Van Houtte coupon code is actually the highest discount I have ever seen them offer. They first started by offering $3 off and gradually moved up to 10%, but 15% off is definitely the highest I have ever seen them go and I doubt they will be going up to 20% any time soon. Van Houtte Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Everything

If you’re a frequent Keurig.ca shopper, then the great part about ordering from Van Houtte directly is their broader selection, such as with the Crème Brûlée k-cups, which sound absolutely delicious and that come down to $14.83 (reg. $17.45)!

Plus, since this code may be applied site wide, then you can also use it to save on coffee beans, especially for those of you who have yet to jump on the Keurig and K-Cup train. Speaking of which, if you have been meaning to get a Keurig brewing system, then this code may also be used to save on any brewing system. This Keurig K60 special edition brewing system for instance, could be yours for just $100.30 instead of its regular price of $118.

As usual, shipping is free on all orders over $45.

Keurig Canada Mystery Savings: 5% – 20% Off Orders Over $85

Posted by on March 15, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Keurig Canada Mystery Savings: 5%   20% Off Orders Over $85

It looks like Keurig Canada is at it again and this time with mystery savings of up to 20% off!

To take advantage of this awesome promotion, all you need to do is subscribe to their newsletter to then be e-mailed a one-time use Keurig coupon for either 5%, 10%, 15% or 20% off almost any order over $85. Although it can be used on all K-Cups and accessories, it excludes items like the Pink Tartan designer mug, the Elite Trio and a couple of others. For those of you who have already previously subscribed, then make sure to check your inbox for your unique code now!

Even better is that your odds of getting the max percentage off is actually quite high considering that 500,000 people will get the 20% off discount, 68,500 will get the 15% off one, 20,000 will get the 10% off and 11,500 will receive the 5% code.

I’m a huge fan of the Breakfast Blend, French Vanilla and Original Donut Blend K-Cups but if you have a Keurig brewing system, then there are plenty more flavours and roasts for you to try like the Jamaica Me Crazy or even the German chocolate cake ones. What’s your favourite?

As usual, shipping is free on all purchases over $45, which means that by redeeming this code, your order will automatically qualify for it.

Canadian Freebie: McDonalds Small Coffee

Posted by on February 24, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Canadian Freebie: McDonalds Small Coffee

This morning until March 2nd, walk in to a McDonalds restaurant, order a small brewed coffee and then walk out. You don’t have to pay, you don’t have to buy anything else, because the coffee will be free.

You did hear me right when I said free. You’ll get a free coffee at McDonalds, just by ordering it. You can go back too, all day if you’d like really. My husband probably drinks about six cups of coffee a day, and these are small, so I’m sure he could down a good 12 free McDonalds coffees in one day if he so chooses to keep going back. He is often on the road too, so he could technically hit the drive-thru in our city, hit the road and progressively stop at each McDonalds on the way. It could be a challenge for him.

I’m sure he’ll end up ordering a Big Mac or a large fry or something else at one of the stops, but I’m sure that is the purpose here. He has also told me that McDonalds coffee is quite good, so it isn’t like you are getting free sludge, it is a tasty beverage.

I don’t have any other information for you about this free coffee deal, except if you drink coffee, go to it, get it.

Keurig Canada: $120 For a Brewer + 27 K-Cups + Carousel (& 20% Off Site Wide)

Posted by on February 7, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Keurig Canada: $120 For a Brewer + 27 K Cups + Carousel (& 20% Off Site Wide)

Piling on the savings, Keurig Canada has combined three amazing products into one delicious combo. Dubbed Cupid’s Tempting Trio, it includes a K60 Special Edition brewing system, 24 Van Houtte House K-Cups and a K-Cup carousel for just $119.99 (reg. $206.38). This deal is valid until February 25th, 2014.

If bought separately, the brewer comes up to $159.99, the carousel to $25.95 and the k-cups to $20.44 — so, at $119.99, you’re saving over 40% off! Heck, at this price, even I’m tempted to get this trio even though I already have a similar brewer and a pantry full of k-cups.

But I guess I’ll just have to contend myself with taking advantage of another super awesome Keurig promotion going on right now: 20% off all K-Cups and accessories, which expires February 17th 2014.

Not only can you stock up on your favourite k-cups and take immense pleasure in knowing that you’re saving loads, but you can also get an accessory, such as this Keurig stainless steel travel mug to make sure that your morning cup of energy stays piping hot all the way to work. Originally priced at $19.99, it can be yours to either enjoy yourself or give to a loved one for Valentine’s Day for just $14.39.

Even more exciting is that free shipping is also available on all orders, with no required minimum.

Are you a K-Cup fan? What is your favourite beverage to have in the morning?

Keurig Canada: Save $6 When You Buy Three 24 K-Cup Boxes of Flavoured Coffee

Posted by on January 15, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Keurig Canada: Save $6 When You Buy Three 24 K Cup Boxes of Flavoured Coffee

Stock up on your favourite flavoured Keurig coffee with $6 off three boxes of K-cups.

Math time! These boxes are 24 packs and generally cost $17.45. If you sign up for a free membership, you get them for $15.71 instead. At the non-member price, you save about 11%. If you get a free membership (did I mention that it is free?) then you are saving about 13%. Not too shabby, right? Regardless of member or not, you get $6 off of every three boxes of flavoured coffee you buy.

I don’t drink coffee. I don’t like coffee. It’s gross and tastes terrible. In fact, I dislike coffee so much that I think less of you, yes you, personally, just for liking it. Vile elixir. But a bunch of people seem to like it so BargainMoose will continue to bring you deal like this one. Something that I have not tried is flavoured coffee. I have to imagine that your cup of dirt-water probably makes it easier to choke down so maybe one of these days I’ll pick some up. That being said, I know a lot of people who drink flavoured coffee almost exclusively. My sister-in-law, I think, only has regular coffee in her K-Cup carousel for when her parents come over and want regular, boring coffee.

Keurig is convenient and easy but I think the real selling point for a lot of people is the variety and flexibility. If you want regular coffee, you can brew a cup. If you want to switch to decaf, you just pop in a different K-Cup. Another flavour? Another K-Cup. You don’t need to dump out half full pots of cold coffee. I remember the gooey dried coffee at the bottom of the sink from when my mom used to pour out the old coffee.

Shipping is free once you spend over $45.

Second Cup January Java Challenge: Every Second Coffee Absolutely Free!

Posted by on January 7, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Second Cup January Java Challenge: Every Second Coffee Absolutely Free!

Have the holidays worn you out? Then re-energize yourself with Second Cup’s January Java Challenge and enjoy an absolutely free medium-sized cup of coffee with purchase of a medium Java of the day (brewed coffee).

Although the Java of the day varies day to day, it’s nevertheless a great way to discover all of Second Cup’s different varieties of coffee such as Hazelnut Cream, Royal Blend, or any other! Keep in mind that you will need to print a free punchcard in order to take advantage of this offer. Do make sure to let us know if you spot punchcards in-stores as well!

Either take advantage of this occasion to get free cups of joe for yourself or treat a friend to a coffee date — though, there is no need to tell them that the drink is free!

Did you know that milder coffees also have a much higher caffeine level compared to its stronger counterpart? This is because the beans of bolder coffees are roasted longer, eliminating some of the caffeine. So next time you’re cramming for a test or have more appointments than you can possibly keep track of, then definitely opt for a milder option such as the Hazelnut Cream mentioned above, French Vanilla, Caramelo or any other!

In fact, it would seem that January is the prime month for deals on caffeinated and café style beverages in general since Starbucks Canada has just recently unveiled a promotion of their own as well: grande beverages for just $2 after 2pm with a morning receipt.

What is your favourite Second Cup drink?

Starbucks Canada Treat Receipt: Any Handcrafted Grande Beverage Just $2 After 2PM

Calling all Starbucks and most importantly coffee lovers, Starbucks has released an AH-MA-ZING promotion that you surely won’t want to miss! For a limited time, get any handcrafted beverage in a grande size (medium) size for just $2 every day from 2pm until closing time when you bring in your morning receipt.

I have to admit that when I first came upon Starbucks’ latest promotion, the whole “handcrafted beverage” stumped me a little but the term should be taken straightforwardly, with all of their beverages available for ordering, most notably their most recent addition: Caramel Flan Latte.

A regular latte but with caramel flan syrup, caramel whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top, the Caramel Flan Latte has already gained a fabulous reputation for being a tasty variation of the all popular dessert, but as per Starbucks Melody‘s advice, you could also try the Caramel Apple Spice beverage with spritzes of the caramel flan syrup for a heavenly combination.

What is your go-to Starbucks drink? Will you be giving the Caramel Flan Latte a try?

As usual, free shipping is applied to all orders as well.

Amazon Canada: $50 For Keurig Elite K40 + Free 27 K Cup Carousel & Shipping (Expired)

Warm up with a hot beverage from Keurig and Amazon!

Please note that you have to add both products to your cart, and the discount will show up at checkout.

This is a great deal. I could almost leave this deal by just saying that one line because I feel like everyone in the world knows everything about Keurig already. Maybe it’s just where I am, but everyone loves these single-serve coffee machines. Right now you can get the Keurig Elite K40 at Amazon for just $49.99. That’s $100 off the MSRP, and $30 lower than either Wal~Mart Canada or Keurig Canada are selling them.

On top of that you get a free 27 K-Cup Carousel to organize all your various coffee, and free shipping. Amazon sells the Carousel for $19.99 regularly, so all-in-all you’re saving about $60 on the product and maybe $10 to $20 for shipping.

I’m assuming that they have got to be running out of these, since it is the #1 best selling item in the Home and Kitchen Section. Get one now before they run out!

Well.ca: 10% Off Coffee

Posted by on December 27, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Well.ca: 10% Off Coffee

At Well.ca, all coffee has been reduced by 10%, but only for a limited time. This includes: ground coffee, instant coffee, whole beans, espresso, decaffeinated coffee along with coffee capsules such as K-Cups, T-Discs and iperEspresso capsules.

Here’s a statement that I bet the vast majority of readers can easily admit to having uttered frequently during the madness and hecticness that preceded Christmas this year: “I love coffee“. We have all been there and while caffeine is part of numerous coffee routines, overpaying for it isn’t as fun.

For all the Starbucks fans out there, Well.ca’s sale may be a great opportunity to save on Starbucks K-cups, which you can buy in bulk and get an even bigger discount. The Starbucks House Blend 160 K-Cup case pack, for instance, is on sale for $131.39 (regular $145.99), while at the Starbucks Store, these come up to $22.95 for 24 k-cups (or $153 for the same amount of 160).

On top of saving on coffee, you can also save up to 60% off during Well.ca’s Boxing Week Blowout Sale, which as Avigayil mentioned in a previous post, has some pretty deep discounts on beauty products, vitamins and much more.

If it’s your first time shopping at Well.ca, then be sure to use one of our many Well.ca exclusive discount coupons to save $10 off purchases over $40 (valid for new customers only). Also, be sure to reach the $25 threshold for free shipping, otherwise a $4.99 shipping fee will automatically be applied.

Starbucks Store Canada: Buy 1LB of Coffee & Get $5 Gift Card Free

Posted by on December 17, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Starbucks Store Canada: Buy 1LB of Coffee & Get $5 Gift Card Free

Buy a regular 1lb bag of coffee at Starbucks Store and you’ll get a free $5 gift card to give or keep.

If you normally buy your coffee from Starbucks, then this is a great deal because you are basically get $5 free to use on more coffee. The deal doesn’t say anything about getting a $5 card per bag of coffee, so I’m not sure if you can stock up and keep getting gift cards. That would be sweet. The only issue here is that shipping is free on orders over $60 and coffee is about $16 a bag, so you would need to buy 4 to get free shipping and you might still only get one gift card. If paying shipping doesn’t matter to you and this is a Christmas gift, you can still get it in time for Christmas by choosing express shipping at checkout.

While you are shopping at Starbucks, you might as well look at what other items catch your fancy and you could stick with just one bag of coffee and still get free shipping. Either way you are saving $5 overall, so do it!
