400 Nespresso Capsules + Nespresso VertuoPlus White Coffee Machine + Aerocinno 3 from $320 Delivered @ Nespresso

640
ToyotaVP1

Saw this deal on myToyota app. Used it myself today after my old machine died.

It's pretty much as the description says, buy 400 Vertuo capsules and get a free machine using the code.

Thinking about doing it again with the office as I want a machine there too. Ask people to order (through me) their coffee and I'm bound to get 400 capsules ordered so we can have a machine in the office (where it will be treated terribly and break after 6 months).

Depending on how big your cups are (I like a mug), it cost me $406 in coffee to get the machine.

      Yeah but then you still gotta buy your 400 bucks in coffee

        Exactly. I drink way too much coffee, so it's about 3-4 months supply for me.

          You’d probably be better off putting the money towards a Vertuo Plus Bundle. $279 @ The Good Guys.

          Why not buy a better machine than an nespresso if you drink that much coffee?

          I've got Breville Bambino Plus and the Breville Smart Pro grinder and it's giving me the same quality coffee as my local Cafe where as a nespresso tastes rubbish. Plus the capsules cost way more in the long run. The only other thing I need is the Fellow Atmos vacuum canisters so that I can keep a kg fresh for a month.

            @carleast: I'm also very lazy. I used to have a non-pod machine but it was too much assing around.

            •  

              @SirFlibbled: The beauty of the Bambino is that it's almost as easy as the nespresso. The automatic milk frother is amazing. The Smart Pro grinder gives you the exact dose so all you really need to do over and above the nespresso is tamp and then clean a few extra parts. It is very quick.

          •  

            @carleast: I vacuum seal and then freeze my beans.

            •  

              @TEER3X: Do you seal individually weighted doses? I've heard you get better coffee than even without freezing because it provides a more consistent grind. However, I've also read that if you don't do this and you seal larger quantities that the beans degrade much faster after defrosting them. I can't be bothered vacuum sealing individual dozes so was thinking that the Fellow Atmos would be a OK substitute.

            @carleast: Must be a mediocre cafe if they can't make a better coffee than what you get out of a $200 grinder and $450 coffee machine.

            • -3 votes

              @prhino: How so? My grinder is less than $200 and a basic espresso machine is less than $450

              If I get freshly roasted Ethiopian beans, I'd be hard pressed to find any place that can do better coffee than me.

              • +1 vote

                @TEER3X: A cheap grinder will produce an uneven grind. Better to get it pre-ground using a decent grinder, then store it properly.

                I'm not saying you can't produce decent coffee at home using cheap equipment, but any decent cafe should be able to produce much better coffee.

                You actually don't want beans that are too freshly roasted. Better to wait at least a week after roasting.

            •  

              @prhino: Well I'm not getting close to the likes Mecca, Gumption, Industry Beans or Brother Baba Budan but I'm matching most other places that aren't in that top tier. It's not rocket science. Good beans, a dialled in grind plus good tamping pressure get you most of the way there.

        But then you lose a chance at getting the capsules discounted or you may have a heap of capsules left over if the machine breaks.

        •  

          2 years warranty the machine . If you drink one coffee every day it will be abou 1 year and 25 days so. Even if the machine breaks you just send the machine back to replace and enjoy the rest of the coffees.

          Having owned a machine for 7 years, capsules are never discounted through Nespresso. Their promotions are always free shipping or they’ll throw in a small token item like the current ice cube tray after a minimum purchase:

          If the machine breaks then it’s covered by warranty. Last time I had to service mine they also sent a loan unit out so we weren’t without a machine.

            Absolutely, don't want consumers to take a break in buying the pods.

            •  

              @ihbh: Well they also gave us 10 free pods which at the rate we go through them were probably going by the time the unit was repaid in a fortnight.

            @Smigit: There has been discounts on the coffee twice in recent months????
            Dec 30 Buy 200 capsules or more to receive 15% OFF* Buy 100 capsules or more to receive 10% OFF*
            Black Friday was 15% off as well

        You plan to buy those at RRP do you?

        Not to mention the quality of the pods. If you're keeping coffee around even for 4 months, you're doing it wrong

    Cheapest price to get it is $320.

      That makes your suggestion to spend just $40 less for the machine alone even more perplexing.

  •  

    did they have deals.for the normal capsules?

    • +13 votes

      Rarely. They frequently need to offer big discounts on the Vertuo machines because they are wildly unpopular and nobody wants DRM coffee pods.

      Just on black Fridays when the whole store last year was with 15% off

    Cheaper to buy a normal expresso machine for around $200 then buy normal ground coffee, works out to be 40c or so a cup instead of getting locked into some DRM machine that costs 70-80c a capsule.

  • +6 votes

    Only an idiot would use pod machines. It's so much cheaper to use real coffee

    Fly to Ethiopia, get green (untoasted) coffee beans, fly back, then roast them at home, wait 24 hours, grind them to your liking, and make sure you consume all of the beans within 14 days, brew your coffee and enjoy. See, so easy.

    For extra points, get the wife to clean up the mess.

    This is no longer working?

    Tried to place an order online and it said the coffee machine was low on stock and to call to proceed with the order, called them up to place the order and the code doesn't work over the phone. Went to try again and now it's saying the promo code isn't valid.

    •  

      Still works, tested up to paying for them on mobile site.

      •  

        Where are you entering the promo code? Because whenever I or my roommates/partner enter it on the page just before payment where it asks for a promo code, it says invalid

      I got that message the other day. They've probably been ozbargained a bit and you might need to wait for new stock to to come into their warehouse.

    That 400th coffee pod is going to be real fresh when you get around to drinking it lol

  •  

    Do the capsules have an expiry?

    Are they normally more expensive than the regular ones?
    I once read that it uses a barcoding system on this machine and no generic capsules can be used?

    How old was your previous one OP Before it died?

    Will it do 400 capsules? Haha

    •  

      Brought the same machine with frother at eBay Black Friday Sales for $149. Thinking of returning because of the barcoding system as cannot do generic capsules. Now thinking of getting their old machine like the Clitz.
      Anyone can recommend some else? Maybe Breville Bambino Plus look promising.

      Nespresso reckons they're hermetically sealed and protected from air, light and moisture. There's a manufacture date and a 'best before' date on each capsule, which is usually six to nine months later. Nespresso reckons they're actually fine for a year. I've never had one that old so can't say.

    •  

      My old machine was a normal Nespresso (not this new type) and was 3 years old.

      They're about the same price as the regular ones except these can do larger cups. I have a mug for example and usually put in 2 shots. Which at around 70c a capsule is $1.40 a coffee. Where are with the mug capsule I'll only pay $1 or so. It's a significant saving for me.

      Downside it, you're stuck with the DRM pods but I've found after the initial excitement of being able to buy other brands, most of them sucked and you couldn't recycle the pods.

      The capsules do have an expiry but they're pretty lengthy from memory. Obviously the younger the fresher the coffee.

    pods are so terrible for the environment, and more expensive in the long run.

    buy 1-2 metal reusable pods, and just buy ground coffee or grind your own. cheaper, and better coffee as you get to control the beans.

    Why are these still so popular, even in terms of saving money… Spending more on the machine is far better in the long run. This deal is $0.80 per shot of coffee (per pod) while a bag of high quality roasted beans is $40/kg. Easily can get 100 or more shots of coffee from that bag.

  •  

    Not sure if this still works.

    OP are you able to recommend flavours/capsules?
    My wife has been wanting one of these and I figure Valentine’s Day is coming up.

    •  

      Valid until 1 March. If younorder go through Australia Post not toll. Usually it's a next day delivery but they suffered a cyber attack and can't deliver anything. It's ridiculous.

      As for flavours, I like my coffees strong. So I got the Intense and the single origins as well as a few flavours.

      It comes down to your wife's tastes really.

  •  

    I think this machine has totally sold out currently. Is there any way around this or any good other deals that people have found?

  •  

    I just tried to order this online. When checking out it said it was low in stock and to call 1800 623 033.

    Called them and they were happy to put the order in over the phone.

    I can confirm it's only available in white, I did ask :P
