You might get cheaper per pod coffee deals, but this is a variety pack, not just coffee, and is the best price I've seen for this kind of assortment, even before the Prime Panty credit.

Item is priced at $10.99. Prime users choose "No rush" shipping and receive a $5.99 Prime Pantry credit. Bringing the final price to $5 for 30 pods, so $0.17 per pod.

I needed 2 packs, and the prime pantry credit is $5.99 if you order one or two. So I placed 2 separate orders, to get 2 credits.

Item title on Amazon
Coffee, Cappuccino, Tea,Cocoa and Cider Single Serve Cups For Keurig K Cup brewer Sampler Pack,30 Count by Custom Variety Pack

Item price is $10.99

OP's link doesn't work. Working link: https://www.amazon.com/Coffee-Cap...B00JKRE5T6

I was going to order but then saw the reviews... Many complaining about repeating flavors and the most recent one says they're unloading the holidays flavors now, which I already have plenty of. Good deal for those who like the holidays flavors though. Thanks for sharing!

Really confusing deal here. Thought these were the prices after using Prime Pantry credit. Getting Pantry credit is kinda meaningless since its given with a ton of other items.

Plus, your math gymnastics are weird - If you remove the cost of the Pantry credit here, which you have done, you're just going to have to add it when you -may- eventually use it later. Makes more sense to discount the Pantry credit when it's actually used to prevent seeing it as a "double discount".

You can blame SD link modification for that. Copy and paste works fine.

To see this at -9 votes is ridiculous. $10.99 for 30 variety of non coffee is in itself a great deal.

If you TDed this for "not a good price" please link to a deal that is even close to as good a price for a 30 count variety pack that is not all coffee. Seriously, I have to buy these non coffee variety packs regularly, and would love to pay less than $10.99 for 30.

Eh?Confused

"Thought these were the prices after using Prime Pantry credit". I don't think I inferred you can use a pantry credit you might already have. You have to buy the item to get the credit. You can't use a credit you haven't yet earned. How is that confusing?

"Getting Pantry credit is kinda meaningless since its given with a ton of other items". How does that make it meaningless?

The "math gymnastics" are no less weird than a mail in rebate. You buy an item because of the price after rebate, but you only really get that price if you use the visa rebate card, and on something you would have bought anyway.

You definitely did infer a lower price. Your title states "$5 (after $5.99 Prime Pantry credit)". "After" is confusing because it could either mean "the price is $5 'after' using $5.99 credit someone already has" or "after" could mean "$5 is the price 'after' factoring in receiving the credit". And since Amazon frequently gives out Pantry credits (just like they do with the $1 digital credit), it's reasonable that people would have the credit already.

A much less misleading title would be $10.99 since that's the actual price. Include in the description that it includes the pantry credit, fine, but to state that the price is $5 "after" $5.99 credit is very misleading and makes the deal seem better than it is.

And Pantry credit is not like a rebate. A rebate can be used anywhere, Pantry credit can only be used with Pantry items. As such, while you may like Prime Pantry, those credits will be absolutely meaningless to people that don't. I've personally had a ton of pantry credit expire since it's offered so often and since I rarely use Prime Pantry. I'm sure many other people have to.

Finally your math gymnastics rebuttal just supports what I said. As you agreed, you only get "price after rebate" if you actually use the rebate card, so there's no reason for you to have titled the deal at $5.99 since you're going against what you said and instead assuming people will use the pantry credit. Again, a less misleading title is $10.99, because again, that's the actual price.

It says Prime pantry credit in the title. You say you know what prime pantry credits are, and how they are used, yet you were confused?

Yea, OK, good one. Thanks.
