    The pods never seem to be on offer.

    However, they're £3.68 on the Dolce Gusto site with free delivery if you spend £25. Depends if you really want 7 boxes! Good variety of flavours though.

    Before Christmas www.britishcornershop.co.uk had the 'lungo' variety at £3.49 and BOGOF - I had to order quite a few boxes (12!) to make it worthwhile with the £6 p&p though. Think I cleared them out as they've not been back in stock since.
    If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor...

    Was in tesco yesterday and they were selling the skinny lattes for £2.13 per box. It didn't seem to be a special offer either, just the regular price. All other varieties still £3.57.

    If you join the Dolce Gusto website they sometimes send you promo emails and they have different selections than some of the supermarkets.
    I don't use mine all the time for the simple reason they are just too expensive.
    Have recently been to the US and they were still the same price as they are here.
    So it's probably a Dolce Gusto monopoly!

    We dont use ours all the time either, have been using our filter coffee machine using ground coffee from the pound shops. Much prefer Dolce Gusto though.

    A lot of people are complaining about Dolce Gustos prices. You have it on amazon , but it is expensive either.

    Probably because people don't bother to look around and go for the easy option and think ebay is cheaper.

    I can't complain though, when I bought my machine about 2 years ago and bought the Nesquick hot chocolate for my son, he only drinks hot chocolate, he had 3 drinks and didn't like them. I stuck the opened box on ebay and sold them for over £10 and p&p on top of that. and received glowing feedback.

    Dolce website offer now free delivery if you buy 4 boxes so cheaper than Tesco.
    Tip - don't buy the latte pods or any that include milk, just buy the Americano or Esspresso & add your own milk. A bit of milk heats in no time in the microwave.
