If you happen to be a bit of a coffee ☕ snob and recently invested in a lovely Nespresso OriginalLine machine, we have a savings tip for you. It comes in the form of a limited time Amazon promo code for your next batch of pods or capsules. While the superior flavor of Nespresso coffee is said to be worth every penny, the saver in you still feels guilty. Mr. PingBug feels your pain.
The average cost for a Nespresso coffee pod or capsule is in the $0.75 – $0.85 range (per pod). With the enhanced quality of the Nespresson coffee experience, the price seems to bare that out. By contrast, the average cost for K-Cups is in the $0.35 – $0.65 range (per cup). That’s quite a difference over time. At three cups per day for a full year ($0.30 additional per cup), you’ll end up spending $328 more than if you were to purchase K-Cups.
Nespresso OriginalLine Coffee Pod Promo ♨️
One way to save on your Nespresso OriginalLine coffee pods is to keep a sharp eye out for promos and discounts. Right now, Amazon has a nice limited time promotion on their Jones Brothers Coffee pods. You can get 15% off their packs of 50 pods. And, if you’re a prime member you get free shipping as well. You simply need to use the following code when you purchase on Amazon – 15JBCSALE. Or, you can follow this link and it will be auto-applied for you when you checkout.
The Jones Brothers Coffee gets high marks with 512 reviews and an average of 4 out of 5 stars. That’s the kind of rating you want to see, especially from the “coffee snob” community. The original price of their 50 count box is $33.95 for 100% pure Arabica and their Bold Collection variety pack. The Honduras Organic is a bit more. With the promo code you end up saving $5.10 at checkout ($28.85 total cost). That brings your per capsule cost down to $0.57. Now you’re drinking connoisseur coffee at a K-Cup price. Got to love that.
The promo code is good through March 8th or while supplies last. Stock up before their gone.
Another Amazon option to go with is Origen & Sensations Extra Intense capsules. If you’re a lover of traditional espresso, this is good savings option. They don’t quite make the 4 out of 5 star mark, but they’re not far off. These are Nespresso OriginalLine compatible and contain a blend of Arabical and Robusta coffees. Right now you can get a 120 count order for $37.99. That averages out to only $0.32 per pod which is an excellent price.
An Alternative to Disposable Pods
If these deals don’t hit the sweet spot for you, then you might want to try a refillable pod. The “Amazon Choice” for refillable pods is by Sealpod. They offer a stainless steel capsule and foil lids that seal to enable pressure to build in the capsule while it brews. Personaly I think the major benefit is that you’re not heating up plastic to brew your coffee. You may not taste plastic compounds, but clearly there’s the possibility of unwanted chemicals making their way into your brew.
