Sad Day…

This week was a sad week for me. You see a long time ago, I heard this rumor that there was a coveted Meijer travel mug that they gave out on rare occasions only. Occasions like the Grand Opening of a new store. Seeing as our town is completely saturated with Meijers, I didn’t see myself ever acquiring such a coveted cup.

Why are these cups so coveted? When you use them, you are able to get a coffee/cappuccino refill for $.10.

A DIME!

You can’t make coffee at home for a dime. Not remotely decent coffee at least.

Well, one day, while out for a walk with Andrew when he was an wee one, I stumbled across a garage sale and low and behold…what were they selling?? The coveted Meijer cup!! You betcha that I snatched that up. I don’t remember now what I paid for it, but it wasn’t much. I would have paid much more.

So for the last several years, I have been enjoying Dime Coffee on a fairly regular basis.
16oz for ten pennies!
However, I was notified that the program was ending this week. I was able to get one last dime coffee last Friday. But yesterday, alas… I was asked to pay $.94. Sigh…
Meijer… thank you for offering this program for so long. I knew of no one else who had one of these mugs and never even came across another one during my many stops for Dime Coffee. I really can’t complain for having to pay full price now after getting super cheap coffee for long.
Now, if only my own coffeemaker weren’t broken….

  1. Hey Kelli! I wanted to let you know I "tagged" you in a post about Hershey's Better Basket.

  2. I am so sorry about the loss of your discount coffee. At the same time I… can't believe I didn't know about this. It's almost mythical.
