Next to going to a garage sale, enjoying a good cup of coffee is one of my favorite things to do. When you think about it, the two activities go hand-in-hand. Kind of like peanut butter and jelly! So wouldn't it be great to to make a major yard sale score on a good coffee maker? Well, check out this lucky find a garage sale shopper bragged about on a recent message board...
"I got a Keurig coffee maker, or machine, whatever you call it for $10. She (the seller) told me that she bought it about six months ago and never used it. She thought it cost about $179. I don't even drink coffee but will use it for hot chocolate and maybe try some chi tea.. My mom will like it as she loves her coffee...and one box of hot chocolate pod things for $1."
|Ten dollars? What's next-the lottery?|
A Keurig has been sitting on our kitchen counter for a few years now. We love it. Not only does it make a fine cup of java, but the company really backs up their product. A few months ago our original Keurig began giving us a problem. It would make a crazy noise while dribbling out coffee. Mrs. Dude called the Keurig customer service hotline and the friendly representative went through the usual suggested fixes. This included cleaning out the machine by running vinegar through it. After finding none of the fixes worked, the nice customer service lady offered us a brand new Keurig unit for $80. That's roughly 50% off the retail price! (Had the unit still been under the 12 month warranty, we would have received a replacement unit for free.) The new model looks awesome with very cool blue lights illuminating the reservoir tank-a very relaxing sight first thing in the morning. As an added bonus, we have the K-cups mailed to us from Amazon. I then recycle the K-cup boxes, which are a perfect shipping size for many of my eBay items.
Which brings us back to that unappreciative lady who scored a new Keuirg machine for only ten dollars. Some people have all the luck and don't even realize it!
