[Shoppers Drug Mart] [Pharmaprix] Good and cheap: $6.99 President's Choice Ground Coffee 875-930g (~2lbs) or Tassimo coffee pods

Mods, please don’t move this thread to Expired Hot Deals, I will keep the sale dates updated and bump it up. It comes back every 2 weeks.

The next sale will be from Saturday, November 23rd to Friday, November 29th.

The price has been $6.99 every two weeks since at least June 22nd, 2019

West Coast Dark Roast is my favorite.

I use double the maximum indicated dosage (well packed) in a stove top espresso coffee maker. That's > 30 ml of coffee for each 125 ml cup of fresh cold water.

I have tested many coffees over the years brewed in many ways and I own two coffee grinders... yet I come back to this PC ground coffee.

Check the dates under the cans to get the freshest. Currently, you can find May 2020 dates if you snoop a little.

For freshness, don't buy more than you can use in two weeks. The same sale price has come back every two weeks like clockwork.

Cheap to try: $7. If you like it, post about it to spread the word.

This coffee made me save a lot: I used to buy specialty coffee from a roaster at $29 per kilo! Astonished Face

The price is $7.99 in the West.

These deals are particularly good if you have the frequent $1.20/$6 PCO offer. Buy 6 cans for $8.40 off, or $5.60@. That also puts you at $41.94 if you have a WYS $50 or $60 offer.

What is the regular points for $6.99 coffee? I just want to figure out if it is better to buy $60 worth of coffee for 20x the points ending today or 10,000 points (or $10) for $50 purchase tomorrow.

TIA
Currently happy customer with Koodo, Freedom and Zoomer Wireless, any questions just pm me.

This is a great way to keep a historical record of the sales for PC coffee. Thanks OP!

It's too bad I don't get the individual offer for PC points anymore.

Any one happen to know which of the coffee suppliers/companies makes this store brand?

Good question. I also would like to know.

When this PC coffee is not on sale, I'd like to have an alternative to get the same great coffee.

You get 15 points per dollar spent at SDM for pretty much anything there. 20x works out to be 30% in points back. 10k points for $50 = 20% back. 30% back is better than 20%

I always wait for this deal and buy 6-8 tins plus cat food to snag a PC points offer over 40, 50.. whatever's on that day. Great everyday coffee. Can't beat the price.

Looks like West Coast Dark Roast is many people's favorite. Other flavors readily available but only managed to buy 1 can from 3 different Shoppers locations :(

Thanks, OP, hopefully it's good.

Is it a good price for coffee in general?
This is a good price for good Arabic bean coffee, but this is not particularly good coffee.

Thanks @Temporal
Subscribed, this will keep me from having to look at the flyer. It is our house coffee & stock up when on sale.

BTW - my local store occasionally has K-cups on their clearance rack. Picked up a Starbucharest 10 pk of French Roast today for $4.
I suggest if you are buying coffee, scan their clearance rack.

I did the 20x points a couple months ago and stocked up. When you did that I think this coffee is a fantastic deal. The coffee might not be super high quality but I have drank if for years and find I like it.

I lost my 1200pts for every 6$ for this coffee. Even still I think it's the best coffee by far in its class and price. If you choose to consider points as dollars the effective price is about 5$. I cant find anything that comes close.

These go on sale every 3 weeks for 6.99 or 7.99 in my area. I use it to top up the min spend for 20x. We are earning 18-20k points almost every week.

Great coffee.
