Starbucks Canada Fall Sale: 25% Off Coffee, Mugs, Tumblers Etc.

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Starbucks Canada Fall Sale: 25% Off Coffee, Mugs, Tumblers Etc.

Hey Starbucks lovers, I have a sweet deal for you! Starbucks’ Fall Sale is now on and you can save 25% off a variety of merchandise from coffee, syrups, tumblers and more.

Did you know that Starbucks’ infamous pumpkin spice latte, or PSL for short, has been around for more than a decade? If this is your drink of choice during the fall season or even if you are curious to try a version of it, then definitely check out the VIA pumpkin spice latte. It’s on sale for $5.49 (reg. $7.95) for 5 pouches that are dissolvable in 8 fl oz of hot water. Admittedly, it doesn’t boast the best reviews but I think it’s important to remember that although the VIA line of products are meant to replace the in-store pumpkin spice latte, it’s certain not to taste the exact same as it’s an instant version.

Starbucks’ Thanksgiving blend is also on sale and can be yours for $13.99 (reg. $18.95) for a 1lb bag. It’s a dark roast coffee that boasts a full body and herbal notes. It’s actually a mix between the popular Sumatra and Guatemala Antigua blends. In fact, here’s what quirky reviewer had to say about it:

A new favourite Starbucks coffee! Does not taste like pumpkins… or turkey for that matter. Very good! Will be sure to purchase again.

There is plenty more merchandise to pick and save on, but here’s a short list of the products that caught my attention:

Love caramel? Then you might be happy to know that Starbucks’ caramel syrup is also currently on sale for $6.99 instead of its original retail price of $9.95. It comes in a 350ml bottle and in case you have never tried it (though I doubt that many of you haven’t Starbucks Canada Fall Sale: 25% Off Coffee, Mugs, Tumblers Etc. ), it features smooth and buttery caramel tasting notes. I have ordered numerous caramel lattes and the syrup definitely does add a very pleasant butteryness to any drink! But do keep in mind that to make a caramel macchiato, you actually need vanilla syrup and not caramel!

Even better is that although shipping is usually only free on orders over $75, this time around the minimum threshold has been lowered to $50.

Mac’s Canada: Free $10 Sears Gift Card With Purchase Of Coffee, Tea Or Cappuccino

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

Macs Canada: Free $10 Sears Gift Card With Purchase Of Coffee, Tea Or Cappuccino

Get your coffee or tea fix and receive a free $10 Sears gift card all at the same time at Mac’s convenience stores.

If there was a Mac’s store in Quebec, I would totally be all over this deal. I’m a huge coffee addict and shopaholic, so what better way to combine both passions?

The great part about it is that you will get the free $10 Sears gift card on almost any hot beverage purchase — be it, coffee, tea or even a cappuccino. I’m not the biggest fan of getting a cappuccino anywhere other than a Starbucks or full-time coffee shop, so personally, I would totally go for a mild coffee. There is a possibility that you might get this freebie with any purchase, but that’s for you to try and there is no guarantee that it will work. In any case, with the recent drop in temperature, I’m sure that many of you have been craving something of the hotter variety!

This isn’t the first time that Mac’s gives away a $10 Sears gift card but the last time they did, it was with purchase if any dairy product. Personally, I much prefer the hot beverage option as I’m sure that many of you Moosers do as well.

It’s possible that not all Mac’s stores will be offering this deal but they definitely should considering it’s being advertised on their homepage. There is also no word on when this deal might expire, so I suggest that you take advantage of it as soon as possible in order to not miss it.

The Sears gift card is also only valid on orders over $25. Certain exclusions apply to the use of the gift card but a full list of these is printed on the back of each gift card. Some of the exclusions include but are not limited to: Carters OshKosh clothing, fragrances, make-up, skincare products, etc. Items ending in $0.97 are also off-limits but don’t worry about these as they’re few and far in between at Sears.

What about you Moosers? Will you be getting a coffee, tea or cappuccino?

WalMart Canada: Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker On Clearance | Was $35 Now $15

Posted by on October 7, 2014 at 8:59 AM

WalMart Canada: Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker On Clearance | Was $35 Now $15

Good morning, everyone! When you rolled out of bed this morning, did you enjoy a nice, hot cup of coffee before you fully woke up? If you’re a coffee connoisseur, but you don’t have a way to make it at home, then this deal at WalMart just might intrigue you! In fact, WalMart currently has this Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker on clearance – it normally retails for $34.96, but you can get it now for only $15! You’ll also get free shipping with your order, which is always a nice bonus!

This Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker is a sleek machine that also has a 2-hour auto-shut-off feature. It’s easy to clean, and can help those who love their early morning coffees start their day the right way!

At this time, I currently have 3 coffee machines. 2 years ago, I didn’t have any. I think this might mean that I have a problem!

In reality, I would occasionally have coffee in the past. When I’d see those early morning traffic jams caused by the Tim Hortons drive-thru, I wanted to stay as far away as possible! However, once I got a discounted Nestle Dolce Gusto machine, I started to really embrace having a coffee more often. I may not have one every day, but I’ll at least have 4 coffees a week.

It’s not just about staying alert, either. I have particularly grown fond of dark roast coffees (I do enjoy my dark beers as well, so that may have something to do with it). Then again, my father did have an authentic Espresso machine when I was  a child (it eventually broke down after roughly 14 years of being used on a daily basis), so those Espresso was what I thought all coffee tasted like.

If you were to purchase this Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker from Sunbeam’s website, it would cost you $34.99. Sears is also selling a similar Sunbeam 12 Cup Coffee Maker for $39.99. I’ve included a brief review of this coffee maker from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

This is an excellent product, I have 2 of them and use both regularly. I purchased this new one as a gift because it has all the features needed, at a very good price.

Since this item’s on clearance, it won’t be around for very long! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Costco Canada: Extra $10 Off Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend 200 K-Cups

Posted by on October 3, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Costco Canada: Extra $10 Off Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend 200 K Cups

Stock up on coffee and save $10 off the purchase of two 100-count boxes of Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend light roast coffee. Until the end of the week-end, you can get 200 k-cups for just $73.99 instead of the $83.99 original price.

Originally, I was going to blog about Costco’s deal on Van Houtte Original House blend, where a 96-count box is now $6 off. You can get either the regular or the decaffeinated versions for just $43.99 instead of the regular price of $49.99. It’s great deal considering that it comes down to just $0.46 per k-cup and that on Keurig’s own website, you would be looking at paying $15.71 for a 24-count box, which is $0.66 per k-cup and you would still have to worry about reaching the $45 minimum threshold for free shipping.

Costco, on the other hand, offers free shipping on every order and while if you’re a Van Houtte fan, that deal is worth taking advantage of right now as well, I actually much prefer Kirkland coffee. I buy their signature breakfast blend on a monthly basis because not only is it cheap, but it’s also delicious. It turns out that I have been slightly overpaying but what is the most surprising is that Costco’s online price for the two boxes doesn’t match their in-store price but their current discount is still much better.

In-stores, I usually pay $38.99 for a 100-count box of Kirkland Signature Breakfast Blend but their online price for two boxes is $83.99, which is actually $6 more expensive than if you were to get the two boxes in-stores. Weird indeed but with the discount, you are looking at paying less. Right now, the price per k-cup is just $0.37, which is undoubtedly the lowest price I have ever seen for any coffee in k-cup format.

According to Costco’s description, it’s “a full-flavoured cup of sunshine” and I couldn’t agree more! This has been my go-to coffee for a couple of years now and although I like to switch it up occasionally, I always end up going back to it because not only is it delicious but I also love that I can have my coffee through k-cups without paying outrageous prices for them. As I have mentioned numerous times before, grocery stores frequently sell k-cups anywhere from $0.75 all the way up to $1 and that is just outrageous! I also love that it’s a light roast because that means there is more caffeine than in a darker roast.

Lowe’s Canada: 73% Off Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker – Now $19

Posted by on September 19, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Lowes Canada: 73% Off Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker   Now $19

K-cups are great and all but do you love coffee the old-fashioned way? Then grab yourself a Hamilton Beach 49981c single-serve coffee maker on clearance for just $19 at Lowe’s, which is a $50.99 reduction from its original price of $69.99.

Although this Hamilton Beach coffee maker is just a standard coffee making machine, what differentiates it the most from all the other $20 ones is that it looks much sleeker with its more elongated style and stainless steel make. Unlike the other ones, there is also no glass coffee pot as it brews one cup of coffee at a time and has a capacity of 1-5 cups.

I love my Keurig brewer but sometimes I do wish I had a single-serve coffee maker for when I run out of k-cups or for those times when budget doesn’t really allow overspending on coffee (as it’s so much cheaper to just buy ground coffee instead of the k-cup). This machine also promises to serve hotter coffee with a better taste and while the expected temperature of the poured coffee isn’t listed, this is most certainly an intriguing factor as personally, I have had to start using a tumbler to keep my coffee hotter than it would be in a mug. I also tend to drink my coffee really slowly, but even then, it’s not always hot enough right away.

Reviews are also extremely favourable. With 6 reviews on the Lowe’s site and nearly a perfect score of 5 stars out of 5, here’s what on reviewer had to say about this nifty coffee maker:

Made two cups of very hot coffee in about 3 minutes. Perfect for me. I’ve been wanting a single serve coffee maker but didn’t want to spend the big bucks on the one that takes expensive pods. You can use whatever coffee you want in this one. Comes with two scoops so you can have another cup ready to brew while you wait on the first. Best purchase I have made in a long time.

The fact that this coffee maker is 73% off its original price is also pretty amazing because looking around, I found this exact model for the following prices:

Shipping is free as well.

Click here to shop @ Store.starbucks.ca now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE20
  • Discount: $20 off $99
  • Expiry: 21st September 2014

I recently saw this hilarious meme which was poking fun at another meme that said that Starbucks Pumpkin Spice didn’t have any pumpkin in it. While I don’t like pumpkin spice or any sort of fall flavour usually, I know there are people obsessed with this flavour. How do I know? My Facebook page told me so! Anyway, this made me also realize how many of my Facebook friends love Starbucks. And seriously, what’s not to love? I am also not a coffee drinker but recently had a free coupon for a Starbucks coffee so I got a caramel macchiato. Yum. That drink went down so fast, although the no-caffeine person that I am was a little jittery afterwards.

If you want to turn your coffee into a big batch of pumpkiny goodness, look no further than the Fontana pumpkin sauce. This looks like it would not just be delectable in coffee, but also over desserts like ice cream or cake. It has rave reviews too. For $25.50 you’ll get 63 fl.oz., which should last you quite a long time, or, just one day Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Exclusive $20 Off $99 & Free Shipping

There is so much you could buy at the Starbucks Store to get your total up to that $100 mark and save yourself a cool $20. I know what you’ll use the $20 on too – more coffee, probably in-store!

At my mom’s cottage this weekend, everyone was raving about the Thanksgiving blend. They added the requisite Bailey’s to it and the below 10 degree weather did make it feel much like Thanksgiving. This one also has a 5-star review and if you love full-bodied coffee, I’m sure you’ll love this. $18.95. You could essentially buy 5 and get one free with this offer.

Like I said, you’ll also save the $4.95 in shipping fees, so you are really saving $25 on your total order with this Starbucks coupon code.

WalMart Canada: Gordon Ramsay Everyday 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker | Was $70 Now $39

WalMart Canada: Gordon Ramsay Everyday 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker | Was $70 Now $39

If you don’t want to be yelled at by Gordon Ramsay, you need to purchase his coffee maker! Just kidding, Bargainmoosers – I’m sure he’s a very happy man when cameras aren’t around, especially since he continues to make piles of money from all of his sponsorship deals! Today at WalMart, you can take advantage of a nominal “rollback” – you can get a Gordon Ramsay Everyday 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker for just $39 (the regular price is $69.98). Plus, you’ll get free shipping with this deal! I’m sure Gordon would love this bargain!

This 12-cup coffee maker has some versatility. It has a 24 hour programmable timer, an LCD display, and even a removable brew basket. Thankfully, this coffee maker won’t scold you if you take too long to make your coffee! That’s right – I just had to make another Gordon Ramsay joke.

Within the past year, I’ve grown especially fond of coffee. In fact, I currently own 3 coffee makers! It may be excessive, but when you find great deals for a Tassimo,a Dolce Gusto, and a Keurig machine, it can be too enticing to pass up on any of them. Plus, having a coffee maker can help prevent you from waiting in those long, never-ending Tim Hortons line ups every morning!

The Gordon Ramsay Everyday 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker typically costs $55.95 on Amazon’s American site (I couldn’t find it on the Canadian version of Amazon). I’ve included a brief review from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

I’m so happy I purchased this coffee maker. It works perfectly and fits nicely on the counter without taking up too much space. This machine makes an excellent cup of coffee and is worth every penny!

If you’re looking for a coffee maker with a familiar name, the Gordon Ramsay Everyday 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is a good choice. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Free Shipping On Orders Over $50 (+ Free Taster Cup With Purchase)

Posted by on September 7, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: Free Shipping On Orders Over $50 (+ Free Taster Cup With Purchase)

There is still time to take advantage of a free shipping offer on orders over $50 at Starbucks! Shipping is usually only free on orders over $75, so promotion like these are definitely great, especially for all you Starbucks lovers. Plus, you can also receive a taster cup for free with purchase of a 1lb bag of the Anniversary Blend.

Click here to shop @ Starbucks.ca now

  • Coupon Code: FALLFREESHIP
  • Discount: free shipping on $50+
  • Expiry: 7th September 2014

At first, I figured that the free taster cup included with purchase of a pound of the Anniversary blend is the Anniversary Siren’s Tail mug, but as the name implies, it really is a taster cup. Valued at $4.95, the taster cup closely resembles it’s larger counterpart in that it features Starbucks’ iconic siren on a blue background, but unlike the mug, it’s handleless. Also, while the mug can hold 355ml (12 fl oz), the taster cup can only hold 90ml (3 fl oz). Since the mug is both microwave and dishwasher safe, I can also assume that the taster cup is also. I have a very bad habit of taking hours to drinking my coffee, so any mug that is microwave safe is ideal for me as I often re-heat my coffee!

The Anniversary Blend is definitely one of Starbucks’ more popular blends for its boldness and spicy notes. Aged for three to five years, the Anniversary Blend’s beans lend a bold and spicy taste to one of Starbucks’ most popular blends. I have had the opportunity to taste this coffee a number of times and every sip has been delightful. At $18.95 per pound, it’s definitely a great coffee to give to anyone as a gift, especially in combination with this taster cup. Either that or you could also bust out the cup for guests to try! The only hitch is that if you want more than one taster cup for free, you’re going to need create seperate orders as the number of taster cups don’t increase with the number of Anniversary blend coffees added to the basket.

Since you do still need to reach a $50 minimum threshold for the above Starbucks promo code to work, I suggest you also check out the Summer Sale. I spotted a number of great deals like these ones:

Keurig Canada: 15% Off All K-Cups

Posted by on September 2, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Keurig Canada: 15% Off All K Cups

Need K-cups? Then head over to Keurig right now because you can now save 15% off all Keurig brewed beverages during their Labour Day Sale.

Since I’m a huge coffee addict, I am always on the look-out for a good deal on k-cups because paying full-price for them is not only extremely not worth it money-wise, but it’s also completely useless. As I mentioned during the last promotion that Keurig ran, I always calculate whether any given deal is worth it by dividing the total price of the box of k-cups by the amount of cups inside. In this case for instance, you’re looking at paying about $0.55 per k-cup, which is actually even better than during their last promotion. In fact, the last time that they were offering a similar discount was back in celebration of Saint-Patrick’s Day, during which you could save anywhere from 5% to 20% off your purchases. So, if you’re out of k-cups or are about to run out, then now is definitely a good time to save.

If this is your first time buying from Keurig.ca, then keep in mind that you will automatically be considered a member and you will benefit from the member price immediately.

For all of you Starbucks fans, you will be happy to know that Keurig has recently added Starbucks k-cups to its long list of k-cup varieties with the following popular brews to pick from:

All four of these are priced at $18.35 per box of 24 k-cups and although it’s more expensive than Timothy’s or Van Houtte coffee, which is on averaege $13.35 per box, it’s nevertheless cheaper than if you were to buy directly from the Starbucks Stores. To give you an idea, 24-count boxes of Verona or Veranda coffee are $22.95 at Starbucks.ca.

If you haven’t already, then I definitely suggest you give Timothy’s Morning Blend coffee a try. It’s $13.35 for 24 k-cups and here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Gentle, non brassy coffee. I was very prone to drinking Timothy’s Breakfast Blend but this far surpasses it for flavour, smoothness, general taste. This will be my morning coffee of choice from now on.

K-cups of coffee aren’t the only ones on special as you can also save on a variety of teas like the Lipton Refresh Iced tea. A box of 22 k-cups in down to $13.35 as well.

Shipping is free on orders over $45.

Free Shipping Promo Code @ Starbucks On Orders $40

Posted by on August 5, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Free Shipping Promo Code @ Starbucks On Orders $40

Get your package for free and drink it too with Starbucks’ latest promotion: free shipping on all orders over $40 when you enter the code below at checkout.

Click here to shop @ Starbucks.com now

  • Coupon Code: FS40
  • Discount: free shipping on $40+
  • Expiry: 10th August 2014

Usually, Starbucks only ships orders for free if they reach a minimum threshold of $75, so a $40 minimum requirement is definitely much easier on the budget. When there are shipping minimums over $75, I always get stuck with what else to add to my cart in order to avoid shipping fees. In this case, there is only so long that coffee stays fresh, though the best course of action if you’re looking to re-stock your coffee supply, is to at least buy whole beans instead of ground coffee. Once the coffee is ground, it quickly begins to lose freshness, which is also why it’s best to grind new portions on a daily basis.

Speaking of freshness, French presses are among the best ways to brew a cup of coffee because of the way in which it releases flavour compared to a regular drip machine. Luckily, Starbucks also has a great discount on the Bodum Chambord coffee press: you can get it for just $28.99 instead of $49.95, which is a 42% discount. Looking around, the cheapest I have found it anywhere else is at the Cultured Coffee Bean, where it’s currently on sale for $34.50. In fact, Starbucks still had the 4-cup one for its full price of $49.95, but with the 8-cup, you can brew more coffee and get it cheaper! In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it:

Very happy with this French Press. Brews great coffee with no grinds!!

Keep in mind that although it states “8-cups”, it won’t actually brew 8 cups per se, but rather about 2-3 regular cups — or in a coffee addict’s case like mine: one cup Free Shipping Promo Code @ Starbucks On Orders $40

If you’re always on the go, then check out the to go mug with cream sleeve in 8 fl oz. It’s on sale for $6.99 (reg. $11.95) and is a ceramic mug in a white colour that actually has a slew of great reviews like this one:

I love these mugs — I bought a second one I liked the first one so much. It’s nice to have a travel mug that’s not plastic or metal, that is ceramic, and feels to the lips like a “real” mug. The sleeve makes it easy to hold and you never burn your hands, and gives a slight non-slip quality to the mug which I like when I set it on an uneven surface briefly (like the roof of my car when I’m fishing for keys).

Let us know in the comments what great deals you uncover at Starbucks or what you plan on getting with the free shipping Starbucks coupon code.

Keurig Canada: $4 Off Every 2 Boxes Of Flavoured K-Cups

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Keurig Canada: $4 Off Every 2 Boxes Of Flavoured K Cups

Join Keurig’s Festival of Flavours and save $4 off when you purchase two boxes of flavoured coffee k-cups. The great part about this promotion is that it applies to every two boxes of flavoured k-cups you buy, which means that if you buy four boxes, then you will save $8 etc.

I drink so much coffee in a day that I buy my k-cups in bulk either at Costco or when promotions such as these roll around at Keurig.ca. The way I determine whether a deal on k-cups is good enough or not is I divide the price by the number of k-cups included in the box and I only buy the box if it comes down to under $0.60 for each k-cup. At grocery stores, the price per individual k-cup usually hovers around $0.75, although very rarely I have seen it dip to about $0.65. I know we’re talking pennies, but every penny counts when it comes to these, especially if like me, you can easily drink more than three cups of coffee per day.

With Keurig’s promotion, you can get a k-cup for as low as $0.57. Keep in mind that the regular price won’t apply to any order and instead, the member price will always be calculated into any order. This is because you automatically become a member when you sign up to their site as membership is absolutely free. Even better is that you earn points for completing orders, which can then be redeemed for free stuff.

My favourite k-cups are definitely any the include vanilla, be it Van Houtte’s French Vanilla or Timothy’s French Vanilla. The last time that I placed an order on Keurig.ca, I also added Timothy’s Kahlua Original to try for the first time and I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. It has an extremely powerful smell that can be detected just by giving the box itself a whiff, but it tastes great. In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it:

Definitely my ultimate favorite. I usually love dark roasts, but this just hits the spot. I drink my coffee black, and this is a great, smooth blend.

All of the k-cup flavours mentioned above come down to $13.71 per box.

Shipping is at an easy to reach minimum threshold of $45. With the exception of Christmas time, every time that I have ordered from Keurig.ca, my order arrived surprisingly quick as well.

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: B3G1 On All Whole Bean & Ground Coffee

Starbucks Canada Promo Code: B3G1 On All Whole Bean & Ground Coffee

Love Starbucks coffee? Then you’re going to love their newest deal: buy three bags of whole beans or ground coffee and get one free!

Click here to get whole beans and ground coffee @ Starbucks.ca now

  • Coupon Code: WBB3G1
  • Discount: B3G1 on all 1lbs bags of whole bean or ground coffee
  • Expiry: 1st August 2014

Are you a coffee addict? I sure am! And Starbucks’ coffee definitely hits the right spot. If you buy a lot of coffee, then this deal is for you. If you don’t see yourself going through this much coffee any time soon, then another option would be to slap a pretty bow on a bag or two and give it to a friend. You could even donate it!

Luckily, one of the cheapest blends you can get is the Colombia Nariño and it’s definitely one of the tastiest as well. Priced at $9.95 for 225g, it’s a medium roast coffee that features a walnut-like finish. In fact, here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

I’m beyond happy that they’ve brought back a Colombian blend. This makes by far the best cup up coffee I’ve ever had.

I’m particularly excited to try their newest blend, the Kati Kati as it features citrus and spice notes and judging by the pictures, looks like it might be delicious over ice. Not all coffee blends are good when turned into iced coffees, so it’s definitely useful that Starbucks points out the ones that can be. The Sumatra blend, for instance, doesn’t feature an iced coffee in the picture, nor does it have a “how to brew iced coffee” tab next to the product details like the Kati Kati does. This is probably due to the fact that it’s too coarse of a coffee. Speaking of which, both the Kati Kati and the Sumatra blends are among one of the most expensive coffee you can get at Starbucks with the Kati Kati priced at $18.95 and the Sumatra at $16.95 for a pound.

Since a pound of coffee can range anywhere from $9.95 for a 225g bag all the way up to $18.95 for one pound, you probably won’t reach the minimum shipping amount with four bags alone. Therefore, this could be a good opportunity to fill your order with other items like those in the online exclusives section. If you’re a fan of the caramel macchiato drink, you could re-create it at home with the Fontana caramel sauce for $25.50. Same goes for the white chocolate sauce if you love white chocolate mochas. For guides, be sure to check out this Snapguide on how to make the Starbucks caramel macchiato at home and this recipe for a white chocolate mocha.

Tweed & Hickory Online Coupon Code: Save $1 on every box of K Cups

Do you have a love affair going on with flavoured coffee like I do?  Are you constantly disappointed by the selection at your local grocery store?  Here’s a way to get a whole world of selection on K-Cups for your Keurig machine: Save $1 on every box of K-Cups at Tweed & Hickory!

Click here to shop K-Cups at Tweed & Hickory now

  • Coupon Code:  ONE
  • Discount:  $1 off every box of K-Cups
  • Expiry:  unknown

I’ve found what I consider to be the best deal on Keurig K-Cups out there.  Costco’s Kirkland Breakfast Blend is regularly $38.99 for 100 cups, coming in at just a little under $0.39 per cup.  What I can’t find is a good deal or a good selection of flavoured coffee K-Cups.  At my regular grocery store, there aren’t very many interesting flavours to choose from, and the flavoured cups sell for around $0.72 ($12.99 for an 18 pack). Tweed and Hickory saves the day here with an enormous selection of brands and flavours, many of which at a great price even before the coupon discount.  Here are some of the ones I’m most excited about:

PayPal Canada: Check in with PayPal Mobile & Get a Free $5 Towards Toronto Coffee Shops

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 6:30 PM

PayPal Canada: Check in with PayPal Mobile & Get a Free $5 Towards Toronto Coffee Shops

PayPay Canada is trying to brighten up your morning with a nice new freebie offer.  If you are a PayPal Canada user, they have a great deal happening right now. Check in with PayPal mobile by the end of July, and you will automatically get $5 towards coffee at various Toronto coffee shops absolutely free!

There is no purchase necessary to get the free $5, you just need to log into your PayPal account from your smartphone. It is a great app to have because you can actually pay through it at many stores across Canada. A lot of people have the misconception that you can only shop on your computer online and use PayPal but that is just not the case. I assume that they are doing this promotion to advertise that they can be used at any stores and not just online.  Personally, it doesn’t matter to me why they are doing the promotion when you get a freebie!

To get this deal, you must have the PayPal app on your phone. If you do not have it downloaded to your smart phone, we can help you out with that. It is totally free to download.  Just choose the app for either or iOS or Android. Once you have it, follow these simple steps to get your free $5.

  • Log in with your PayPal account
  • Click the ‘Shop’ button and select a location
  • Save the $5 offers and slide the blue ‘P’ to check in
  • Inform the cashier that you will be paying with PayPal

It will be valid at various coffee shops around Toronto Ontario. There are so many in fact that I don’t want to list them all here.  You will see the complete list on the main link above.

Ontario always seems to get the great deals don’t they! This is one of those times I wish I was living back there.

Keep in mind, you can spend the $5 on anything at any of these coffee shops.  You can obviously get coffee, but you can also get tea, snacks, even novelties sale items. This is a one time deal so you will not get the free $5 every time you log into PayPal through your smartphone app.

Amazon.ca: $76 Tassimo Coffee Maker T47 (was $150) + Free Shipping

Amazon.ca: $76 Tassimo Coffee Maker T47 (was $150) + Free Shipping

As I sipped my lovely home-brewed, single serve coffee this morning, I found this great deal on the Tassimo T47 Coffee Maker:  50% off at $75.43 at Amazon.ca (reg.  $149.99)!

I love my Tassimo.  I am fully incapable of brewing traditional coffee.  Honestly, I don’t know what my issue is, but when I try to brew coffee, I either end up with it way too strong, way too weak, or with coffee grounds in my cup and all over my counter.  I absolutely love the convenience of just popping the little T-Disc into the machine, placing my cup, and pushing the button.  Not to mention that most weekdays the adults in my house are each only drinking one cup before we head out for the day, so I feel like it’s more logical to use two pods, allowing us each to choose our own flavour and having a hot cup of coffee at different times versus brewing a pot that I’m probably going to mess up anyways.

I really appreciate that the Tassimo T47 offers automatic cleaning and descaling, and that it brews coffee in approximately one minute.  Mornings are when I’m at my least patient, especially when it comes to getting my caffeine fix, so speed is of the essence.  Tassimo does all the thinking for you in those groggy morning hours by reading the barcode on the T-Disc, brewing the perfect cup every time.  I especially love trying lots of different coffee flavours, which the Tassimo allows me to do easily.

Price Comparison

I checked out a whole bunch of competitors on this one.  Amazon’s offer is a real steal.  Check them out for yourself if you’d like.

Amazon.ca has sales on other Tassimo models if the T47 isn’t right for you.  You can check out the Tassimo T20 for $69.99 (reg. $169.99) or the Tassimo T55 for $109.99 (reg. $229.99).  I also really enjoy that you can purchase a Tassimo Espresso, Coffee, Cappuccino, and Tea Variety Pack ($43.99) with 48 T-Discs to let you sample a bunch of flavours without having to buy a whole package of any one flavour.

Shipping

Your order will ship free from Amazon.ca.
