got the number to look this up?

 

072080812

some other stores in my area were showing 74.98 while others are still showing 124.98.  The one I got mine at is now sold out, and the price was 62.54 before taxes.  it appears all stores in San Diego are out of stock

my target had the holiday limited bundle Nespresso Vertuo Plus Deluxe Coffee Maker with Aeroccino.  Normally $249.99.  The Holday bundle just includes 12 capsules, and they reduced it to $64  

 

 

I picked this up last week! How would it be $65 though? 70% off makes it $75 plus tax, which is what I grabbed it for.

I am not sure but I am not complaining.  since you got one, were the capsules in the package still useable or did they expire

The capsules were expired, which is why the unit was on clearance. nespresso claims technically never expired since they are "hermetically sealed" yet the dates are required by the FDA.

 

I may not keep the unit though since I did not know at the time it uses only the DRM enabled Vertuo pods, not the pods that have been around for years. You can only buy them directly from nespresso, and of course more expensive than the classic pods.

LOTS of things at my store that have been typical clearance fodder have been getting "Repackage" or "AS-IS" labels with random percentages now, so it was probably just an occurrence like that.

 

Just checked BS as well, I have a store around in MN that's $65 or 75% off.

75% is such as odd number for target clearance, since the norm is 15, 30, 50, 70.

the odd thing was just last sunday, it was at the 129 price, which i felt was too high

 

i might have waited for it to drop lower then 65 but i figured if i took that chance it would be sold out by then and it turns out I was correct

There may be a huge push to get rid of a lot of models right now as they seem to be on sale everywhere. I found some 40% at bed bath beyond, and was told the 20% coupons stack on top too.

Sounds like a manual clearance such as “Repackage” or “AS-IS”

no DPCI numbers to post cause I don't have them on me but noticed a lot of the Rick and Morty merchandise is on clearance.  Specifically things like the car magnets, air fresheners, and the toys/figures.  

 

Also found the big Nano metal figures X-men set on clearance for $10 as well as some of the Harry Potter, Nightmare Before Christmas and Spider-man nano metal fig sets/playsets.  Short version may be worth a trip through the pop culture/nerdy stuff section in stores.

Wasn't there a way to trick DRM pods by recycling it with a refill? Either way, it's the equivalent of insta-coffee to me and won't touch those things. Fresh brew, best brew IMO.

Oh I agree. Late last year I got huge into coffee. Got an aeropress and javapresse, and starting buying only fresh roasted beans. Hand grind, weigh my beans and brew water to a specific temp, the whole ordeal. What I've found up to this point is a get tired of having to take 5 minutes every morning to weigh, hand grind, set up and do the aeropress, and then clean up too. Sometimes I just want a coffee without fuss. 

 

I've owned a Keurig 2.0 for quite a while now and abandoned it when I got my first taste of coffee the right way. Though I never dived into the world of espresso making, which is why I chose to buy a nespresso. A lot cheaper and easier than to spend $1,000+ on a machine, plus a lot simpler too.

Ha yeah, for a no fuss morning I just get coffee at a shop. I'm no good when it comes to specialty drinks so I leave that to the experts. ;)

My store had an older PS4 Turtle Beach headset on sale, specifically designed to work with the PlayStation VR. It was called something 350VR, I think. It was 50% off, so $39.95 instead of the original $79.99.

What's the consensus on how the Nespresso tastes?  I normally buy lattes from Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts when I need a coffee fix.  I hate the taste of Keurig machines.  Would I like the Nespresso?  I probably should've asked this question before I went driving around Long Island and coming up short at 4 different locations.  Best I found were a discontinued model (Inissia) which was returned ($199), and then an opened VertuoPlus minus Aeroccino ($139).

I would say that really depends on how you enjoy espresso vs. coffee. I’m certainly no snob, but I’ve come to hate the watered-down coffee that Keurig machines produce over the last decade. With Nespresso, as long as you stick with Nespresso branded or Peet’s Coffee pods, they taste pretty good. Is it the worlds best Espresso? No, but for a quick, no fuss espresso or lungo, you can really beat it. The Aeroccino is pretty decent for what it does and it’s super helpful in whipping up specialty drinks, such as lattes, but I don’t use mine much at all as I’ve adapted to drinking espresso black over the last couple of years.

FWIW I personally wouldn’t bother with the propitiatory Vertuo machines myself.

I can let you know soon as I’m testing a dozen pods on a Vertuo plus machine this week. I too hate Keuriig cups since the coffee to water ratio and water temp cannot be controlled. I used to buy cheap pods too and man are they bad. I’ve weighed then and traditionally you want a 15:1 ratio, which is about 15g to a 250ml/oz cup of coffee. I typically do 17:1. A k-cup has maybe 5g of coffee grind in it, hence the watered down taste, since it’s literally true.

Now I don’t have experience with the Nespresso original machines and pods yet. Right now I’m using the Vertuoplus Deluxe and trying out the coffees and grand lundo so far. The pods in aluminum capsules weigh 14g, so my estimate puts it at double the amount of coffee grind compared to a k-cup, considering the aluminum vs plastic cups.

As far as taste, over the past five months I got big into fresh beans, manually grinding, weighing beans, and brewing at specific temps. No pod can compare to any of these methods. Yet it takes me about 5 minutes to manually prep and make one (8oz) cup of coffee vs 30 seconds with a Nespresso pod.

Went for dog food the other day and found these various electronics items & cables for 70% off...they had three different colors of each (white, teal and purple), but all of the colors had the same DPCI. One of the boxes was labeled with the wrong sticker and I didn’t pick up the charger, but they seem like decent pickups for the prices.

You might want to physically check your local store if you’re interested, as BrickSeek shows none anywhere near me, but my local Target has oodles of all of them at an end cap by the cameras & printer supplies.

The financial savings sure can. $.85 a cup compared to what, $4? The store bought ones are loaded with sugar and carbs too, tons of calories. I like to control what I take in.

We have a Nespresso DeLonghi machine that uses the original pods, not the short fat ones, and I love it. Actually, I'm gonna make one right now lol.

You can almost always find them on the website under the about the item/more details of the item in question.

Exactly! Always under the product details page.

Furthermore, Brickseek has a DPCI locator above the zip code field on the Target inventory checker.

Anybody from the East Coast know what the Easter clearance is starting out at this year? I'm in California, and our stores don't open for two more hours.
