We get ours at several places:
Bed, Bath and Beyond has a large selection and you can easily find 20% off coupons for them.
Walmart has recently started carrying a lot of varieties - some better than others - at pretty good prices.
BJ's Wholesale Club for bulk (80 cup) purchases.

Our goal is $0.50 per cup.

There are a couple of filters on the market that allow you to make your own k-cups, using other coffees, which might be a savings. Look for EkoBrew or Solofill cups. I think BB&B carries both.

You can also get fairly good deals at The Christmas Tree Shoppes. I second Bed, Bath, & Beyond as well. My parents tend to get theirs at Costco.

I am allergic to coffee so I only can drink the tea options, which aren't many. I typically buy the Chai latte cups and get them at Target because not many places carry them.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Another option for K- cups is to buy them online.

I get mine direct from Green Mountain. If you join their Cafe Club, you can save on each box purchased & if you buy 4 boxes the shipping is free.

I have a standard order that gets delivered every 6 weeks. If I want, I can change my order whenever I want. Right now I've changed out some brew over ice varieties for some seasonal flavors.

our company got an industrial strengh Keurig for our customer lounge and the customers keep breaking it............the one thing they do the most is pull off the whole cup seat instead of just pulling the used pod out.........then instead of telling someone, they throw it away.........i have been trash can diving four times in the last 2 months. we finally put up a sign......PLEASE JUST PULL OUT THE USED POD NOT THE PLASTIC THING IT IS RESTING IN AS IT IS PART OF THE MACHINE. we also have some older customers and they will stand there and scratch their heads for 5 minutes and then go get a glass of water instead.

A french press k-cup "machine". Might be good for traveling purposes.

That is kind of strange.

There are a couple of filters on the market that allow you to make your own k-cups, using other coffees, which might be a savings. Look for EkoBrew or Solofill cups. I think BB&B carries both.
Have tried the EkoBrew and Solofill cups, and they do work better than the reusable K-cup that Keurig sells, but the very best option that we have come upon, and the one we use exclusively now (for over a year) is the EZ-Cup (www.perfectpodmaker.com). This is a plastic "k-cup" that takes a disposable filter. The perfect answer to reducing costs, and countering the arguments of those that dislike the K-cups because of the plastic cups not being able to be recycled. The EZ-Cups and replacement filters are available from the company, as well as Meijer stores here in the Midwest. Many online companies also stock them, including coffeeam.com. The disposable filters are about a dime each, and you can use any brand of coffee that you desire, including fresh ground from beans right before you brew it. Works great for us. (and we keep a supply of these with our Keurig mini in our Owner's Locker)

After being told that they could not buy a Keurig to keep in their area, a group in my office bought one of these. They seem to like it. Personally, I keep an Aeropress at my desk and use ground coffee. It's pretty handy, and makes great coffee for iced lattes. =)
