Brandon has a way of always finding/winning us free/incredibly cheap stuff. It seriously is a talent of his. He basically subscribes to every deal website possible and watches these like a hawk. These daily deal websites along with other coupons he finds here and there seem to aways work in his favor.
Now, sometimes this is rather annoying because do we really need another oversized t-shirt or plastic water bottle with some weird logo on the side?
No, no we don't.
Yet sometimes he strikes gold. Like the time he got us a brand new 9x13 pyrex dish and some kitchen utensils for free. Or the time he ordered Clara a personalized keepsake box (with her picture and birth stats. . . love it) for $5 with free shipping.
Or the time he got me a BRAND NEW Keurig Vue V700 Brewer for FREE. Zero dollars, y'all. He obviously knows that coffee is the way to my heart.
Brandon entered us into a drawing to host a house party from this website and we won. So then Keurig sent us the brewer. Just like that. Amazing.
The only requirement from House Party is that we have friends over to test out the new brewer. Reason to get together with friends? Yes please. House Party also sent us some freebies to pass out at the party such as insulated cups, aprons, chocolates, etc.
Here's a few pics of the beauty.
I love that it has nice big water tank and a touch screen. You can control the water temperature and size of cup you wish to brew.
Not only does the Vue brew fabulous coffee but it also does lattes, hot chocolate, sweet tea etc. A list of the available Vue packs (the Vue's name for the standard K-cup) are listed here.
A little more about the Vue V700. . .
"The next generation of Keurig(Source) has arrived! Brew stronger, bigger and hotter with the Keurig Vue V700 Brewing System. It’s easy to brew your perfect cup hot or over ice with a fully programmable color Touchscreen, strength and temperature control, 8 brew sizes, removable 74oz water reservoir and a bonus variety of 10 Vue packs. Now you can fully customize your cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa, iced beverage, specialty or café beverage to brew what you love, the way you love it – every time!"
A close up to compare the Vue V700 with my old brewer, the Keurig Mini Plus.
You have served me well, Mini Plus, but it is time to say bye bye.
The only downside, in my opinion, is that the Vue does not allow you to purchase regular coffee and brew with a separate attachment, as you can with most Keurig brewers. You have to use the Vue packs, which are a tad more expensive than the Keurig K-cups.
So. . .
Keurig and House Party included a few coupons for friends/family to receive 50% off a Vue V700 brewer!! I have two coupons to give away on the blog! These are not the cheapest of appliances thus 50% off is a great deal! The coupons are only valid 9/22/12 - 9/30/12, so you would need to purchase soon.
If you are in need of a new coffee maker I highly recommend this brewing system.
Leave a comment on this post by 8:00am Friday, 9/21/12, if you would like a chance at one of the two coupons. I'll randomly pick two winners tomorrow morning and then get you your coupon/coupon code asap.
I'm off to enjoy a hot beverage. . . See ya!
