Looking for a refillable K-Cup for the new Keurig 2.0 that will actually work with the new machine? Look no further….

So I purchased a new Keurig 2.0 for my dearest for Christmas. Both Sam’s Club and BJ’s had it on sale beating out Walmart’s lowest price by over $20 throughout the holidays. (Take That Black Friday scam sales) On the way out of the store we decided it would be a “household” gift since neither one could wait almost 3 weeks for a decent cup of coffee, so out of the box it came when we got home. 

I loved it so much, two days later I purchased one for my mother for Christmas. Excited about this cool gift, I called my sister, who quickly ran a review search online while we talked. Within two seconds, my the happiness bubble burst into oblivion when she casually said “Mommy’s not going to buy those cups, they don’t even have a refillable for this machine.” I told her it wouldn’t be long before they have one but I really didn’t know if this was the truth or just a way to ease my sudden sadness. So with a heavy heart, I vowed to put it under the tree-it was already wrapped anyway and time was running short before Christmas. 

Fast forward to a few days after Christmas and my dearest tries to use an older K-Cup with the new machine, immediately a 1-800 number shows up on the screen. When he called, the customer service rep filled him in on why it won’t work. There’s a laser that reads the top of the cup, if it isn’t one of the new K-cups, it won’t work. This was a system they built into this machine as not to lose K-cup sales through their competition.  She also stated that it had to do with the coloring of the ring around the top. The new ones have a pale purple ring. Other colors work as well, and some don’t. I don’t remember the list of colors she said would and would not. But not to be outsmarted, my dearest saunters in two days later this beauty.
It’s a purple refillable K-cup from Bed Bath and Beyond and works like a charm! Before the night was through, he ran back to BB&B, picked up one for my mother and dropped it off. (I think he’s running for favorite Son in law this year… Sorry Matt! You’ve got competition!)

Where’d he buy it? Bed Bath and Beyond.

Be sure to use a 20% coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond that comes in the circulars in the mail…. Remember they NEVER expire, no matter what the date on it says!
