Espresso Capsules

So, I checked prices at a Nespresso boutique in Paris yesterday.
They're roughly 42% cheaper in Paris than in the US.
I buy 100 capsules/month ($70) for the wife. I tried Gourmesso, Highline, and some other brands, but none are as good as Nespresso.

If I were to get 1000 capsules ($400 US) shipped, how much is customs going to charge me? Do they even bother?

This is stated on cbp website for people bringing in. But I don't know how much tax will be charged if shipped.

"If you are returning from countries other than the Caribbean countries or U.S. insular possession you are entitled to an $800 duty-free exemption and the next $1,000 worth of the goods you purchased is subject to a flat rate of 3%. If the value exceeds $1,800, the remaining duty will be determined based on duty rates in the harmonized tariff schedule, which are generally between 0-10% (except for clothing and textiles, which can be much higher, up to 25%)."

50 Nespresso capsules for $15 by creating a new Nesspresso account and getting a $20 credit.
Order went through for me. We'll see whether they'll fulfill and how scalable this is.

My first order was the 50 capsule Mother’s Day Selection for $15.20, this deal is fantastic!

Update: made 3 additional 50 capsule purchases for a total of 200 capsules for $60 dollars.

My first order shipped but subsequent orders are pending.
I've got a feeling they're not allowing multiple $15 orders to the same name/address with different email addresses.

I'm so glad I stumbled on this. There are quite a few people in my life without Nespresso machines. Why shouldn't they have their own acct?

Same here. I ordered 2 for husband, daughter, and me. Received one shipment for each of us.

Free Aeroccino Plus frother with 300+ OrignalLine capsules with code MILK1 (or 220+ VertuoLine capsules with code MILK2).

Although these retail for $99 they sell on Amazon for ~$60.
I have one and I've been mostly happy with it in terms of the results it delivers, although it busted due to electrical problems about 12 months in (and they replaced it under warranty).
I'm considering taking advantage of this offer for a backup unit. Or could be useful for gift giving or resale if you're into that.

One question: I see they have an Aeroccino4 that's dishwasher safe, has a single stirrer (rather than one you swap out for steam vs froth on the Aeroccino Plus), and looks like higher capacity (the Aeroccino Plus tends to be prone to overflowing in my experience.

Does anyone have experience with the Aeroccino4 vs the Aeroccino Plus to say whether the newer model is better?

The work around I've found for this is to microwave your milk in advance for up to a minute to partly heat it up before using the frother. This way there is slightly less frothing and thus no overflow.

On a recent trip back to Paris they enforced a 300 capsule limit for those without a Nespresso club membership tied to a French address.
That's about as much as I want to stuff in my luggage so not a big deal, but still...

Here's an active deal if you're up for creating new accounts:

In my past experience same name at a given address can be problematic, but we'll see...

Does this Mother's Day deal require a promo code? Are you talking about Nespresso.com?
No promo code, and it is Nespresso.com. You might need to click on the banner at the top, not sure. But definitely didn't need to put in any code. However, it will only work for a new account. So time to create a new account :D

Filled a large duffle bag in Paris with 7 boxes of 20 sleeves of 10 capsules on black Friday with a 20% discount for €392. I figure a savings of over 50% over regular US prices.

( €35¢ × 1400 ) × 80 = €392 × 1.18 = 462.56 USD in Paris

$76¢ × 1400 = $1,064 in the US

I hope this lasts a little while...

I'm impressed they let you buy that many, as they seem to want to limit you assuming you are a reseller, or something.

I probably bought that much from various supermarkets. However I was focusing on off-brand but compatible. I bought as much as I had room for in my luggage.

I've tried a few brands from Amazon to try and cut down on cost and have been reasonably happy with Bestpresso for what it's worth
