K-cups are the individual servings of coffee, tea and other beverages that come with the Keuring brand coffee machines. Fans of the Keurig machines enjoy the high quality and flavor of these individual servings. The only drawback is the relatively high cost of k-cups per package, although shopping around can yield better deals. Your best bets for buying k-cups cheap is to order them from online vendors or purchase them from warehouse stores that offer them in larger bulk packages.

<strong>Buying K-Cups in Warehouse Bulk</strong>

Regular grocery stores usually sell k-cups in packages of 10, 12, 16 or 24 cups per package, and the minimum price is $12 to $18 on average. When divided between the number of k-cups, this price can translate into as much as $1.60 per individual cup. Some retail stores have sales on K-cups, but their frequency can vary widely. Warehouse stores sell much larger packages of k-cups at prices that divide into much better savings per individual cup. Depending on the warehouse store, membership will cost you between $60 and $100 per year.

<strong>Options for Ordering K-Cups Online</strong>

Independent online sellers of k-cups have recognized the demand for them at better prices. Amazon offers a “Subscribe and Save” option that allows you to save an extra 5 percent on the already low prices on k-cups available through this popular online marketplace. The best selling k-cup packages on Amazon consist of 80 k-cups in a variety of coffee flavors, which divides out to between 30 and 34 cents per cup. Searching for k-cups on ebay is also well worth the time and effort. Sellers routinely put large batches of k-cups for sale up on the auction site for various reasons. Some may have tried a flavor they didn’t care for, or others may have received a less-than-favorite flavor as a gift.

A final workable option for buying k-cups cheap online is to sign up for Ebates and purchase your k-cups through this rebate site. Ebates partners with several retailers, such as Office Depot, Walmart and Sam’s Club. After you submit the rebate through this site, you can purchase your k-cups for about 40 cents per cup.
