MixCups vs. Starbucks: A Price Comparison
You love coffee, and that’s why you go to Starbucks every morning to pick up your Grande Pike Place with room for cream. It’s only $1.95, so what’s the big deal really? A mere 2 bucks a day for a steaming cup of coffee? That doesn’t seem like too big of a deal. Well, while we aren’t necessarily in the business of bursting bubbles, we’re here to tell you that the difference is big – huge actually – in terms of monthly/yearly money spent on coffee at any café, compared with the price of our Mix of the Month coffee subscription. Buckle your seatbelts folks because we’re about to rock your rose-colored world with the insane price differences between MixCups coffee subscriptions and daily runs to Starbucks.
**annual prices based upon individuals who consume coffee either daily, or strictly Monday – Friday, and may vary in reality depending upon actual consumption.
30-count single cup Mix of the Month coffee subscription (1 cup per day, for 30 days): $29.95

Grande Pike Place

Money saved annually with a MixCups 30-count subscription vs. purchasing 1 tall Pike Place from Starbucks 30 days out of every month: $270.60
So, just to highlight the important parts here:
If you are a person who purchases the smallest (tall) and cheapest (Pike Place) coffee from Starbucks essentially every single day, you would save nearly $300 per year by opting for a MixCups 30-count monthly coffee subscription instead. If you purchase any drink from Starbucks on a regular basis that’s bigger or more expensive, that number only continues to rise, which is why in terms of pricing and money saved – MixCups is the obvious option.
