[Canadian Tire] (HOT) Nespresso Vertuo Machine - $100 with $25 Credit

*Starts April 24th*

Canadian Tire has the Nespresso Vertuo Machine listed for $100 on sale in their upcoming flyer. The deal also comes with a $25 coffee credit. The machine is regularly $250 and goes on sale here and there to $170.

Personally one of the lower prices I have seen and you don’t have to fight Nespresso to get the credit as its advertised.

This brings the total of the machine to $75, which is very low.

In order to get the $25 coffee credit you register the machine through Nespresso.

That’s a cool Canadian Tire deal.
However be aware that the Vertuo
machine takes ‘proprietary pods’
that seem to be available from very
few sources and are rather expensive..
I’ll be happy to be corrected otherwise.
Just thought I’d bring this forward.
I’d ordered this on the tsc deal, but after
looking at pod costs I called and switched
over to the ‘Inissia’ that accepts original pods and
generic types. (I’ll likely buy a empty pod setup and use my own espresso mix)
We’ll see.

Ok, so you can probably find hundreds of forums on RFD and the internet that talk about your comment.

I’ll give you a rundown and reiterate what most people say.

Nespresso is one of the best capsule system coffee and espresso machine. With the high quality of beans there is obviously a cost associated with it. If you still look at the cost the capsules cost about 80 cents to $1.20 each. This is still cheaper than drinking a coffee outside and before COVID many people would spend $1.75 easy on a coffee everyday.

Sure there are other capsule systems like Keurig but the quality is much lower. If you can’t tell the quality difference just stick with Keurig as they cost much cheaper.

As for switching to the Inissia machine so you can use generic capsules and eventually find a fillable capsule that is just stupid, no offence.

So, Nespresso capsules are vacuum sealed and are fully recyclable. So, you will likely not find a fillable capsule unless you can find a way to vacuum seal it as the Nespresso original line uses a barometric pressure system to brew the coffee.

As for generic capsules, they won’t be recyclable so you are added significant waste to the world. Along with generic coffees they are not licensed by Nespresso so they can actually damage your machine much quicker and I have seen it. You will save maybe 20 cents per capsule but are losing out on a lot.

To address your concern that Inissia capsules are cheaper, they really arent. The Nespresso Inissia is a machine that only makes espresso and espresso based beverages. You are buying espresso capsules which cost about 80 cents for Inissia. On the Vertuo line espresso capsules are also 80 cents so its not more expensive. Vertuo line has more expensive capsules as it makes coffee, double espressos and gran lungos all which have more coffee in the capsule and thus why they cost more.

The cost per caffeine and coffee for each machine is the same. So if you drink coffees and espressos the Vertuo is a better machine for you, if you only drink espresso’s and espresso based beverages go for Inissia.

Finally, if the cost is too high for you, maybe sticking to a regular drip machine is best for you. Of course this is more expensive but you are paying for convenience, recyclable capsules and high quality coffee. It isn’t for everyone.

Well said and I agree with you. I was also contemplating getting the original line but then when I saw that the size of the drink could only be two sizes as opposed to 5 sizes on the Vertuo line so I opted for the latter. At the end of the day there are much cheaper alternatives such as third party pods but if you want great coffee go with genuine products instead.

Your condescending manifesto aside, this whole fear mongering thing about 3rd party capsules is BS just spread by Nespresso to make you stick with their expensive system. You can refill and reseal the vertuo pods with stickers purchasable from Amazon. There's also one full size reusable pod on Amazon right now but YMMV as to how well it works.

Also the recycling thing is a marketing gimmick, there's fossil fuels used bringing it to the post office/Nespresso so transporting just the pods isn't very ecological.

Furthermore, there's environmental effects added by the mining of aluminum. If anyone buying Nespresso is honestly concerned about their environmental foot print buy a real espresso machine and use your own coffee grounds.

No offense taken.
Thanks - I feel fully informed now.
gran Lungo and single shot espressos
are what I’m looking for presently.
I may revisit the Vertuo at a later date.
I appreciate your information.

You can always make Americanos too. Here's a good explanation from Reddit:


These are the Vertuo specs from Nespresso’s website: espresso, 40ml; gran lungo, 150ml; coffee, 237ml; alto, 414ml.

Marketing fluffery from Nespresso’s USA PR droids implies you can get an Americano from the gran lungo capsules. An Americano is a standard coffee bar beverage. The recipe is conventionally accepted by USA baristas as a shot of espresso cut with four to twelve fluid ounces of (really) hot water. Nespresso wants you to think an Americano can be produced by pushing 5 ounces of water through the grounds in the capsule. Nonsense. That only produces a lot of horribly overextracted coffee. Here’s what Nespresso should have done: programmed the barcode on the gran lungo capsule to brew two or three ounces of coffee, stop, prompt the user to eject the capsule, and then dispense two to four ounces of hot water.

Well be my guest sticking folgers coffee in your Nespresso machine.

I have worked at Nespresso and customers whose machine broke the most was people who used generic capsules and lead to leaks and other problems. I had clients who had machines for 8 years and only used the Nespresso capsules.

So, without proof your point is invalid.

Also, people buy Nespresso for convenience. You take your capsule, pop it in the machine and you get your coffee. It’s annoying and time consuming to fill your capsules, if you want to do that then knock yourself out, but I’d rather fork up $1 to get my nice cup of quick coffee.

Fossil fuels will happen regardless, isnt it better to at least do your part and recycle. Why recycle anything? You think recycling trucks run on water? And getting them to and from recycling posts leads to no fossil fuels?

You are comparing Nespresso, a capsule system to an espresso machine, that’s not a direct comparison. I’m saying and what Nespresso is saying is if you are going to buy into a capsule system, its better to go with Nespresso as apposed to Keurig as the capsules ARE recyclable, where keurig and other competitors arent.

Without more than anecdotal evidence I will have to equally dismiss your claims.

Can't you just use the original pods to make an Americano by letting it dispense water for longer?

I think so, but the concern is that your coffee might taste bad from the overbrewed grinds. So best to add hot water from a kettle after the fact.

Just dispense the used capsule and brew some extra water through the empty chamber to make an americano (I use inissia). Don't try to run extra water through the pod, you will get a burnt taste/smell.

Sorry I'm new to this coffee game and since I'm home alot more now I need to grab a coffee machine. Was going to get a Keurig but this seems enticing.

Are the Nepresso pods only availible direct through them? I can't walk into Superstore and buy pods like the K-Cups?
