Buying cheap Dolce Gusto capsules online is the great obsession of many Dolce Gusto coffee machine users. It is not lost on anyone that capsule coffee machines are not the companies’ core business: the machines are sold with minimal profit margin. What manufacturers are interested in is that as many people as possible have their coffee machines so that they can force them into the purchase funnel that, for them, has long-term benefits: the consumables and the capsules.
And of course, the consumers’ goal is just the opposite: to find the best deals on single-dose capsules (for Dolce Gusto, for Nespresso, for any brand) and thus save a few cents on each cup of coffee, which at the end of the year is already money.
In this article, we are going to explain the different options you have to find the best deals on cheap Dolce Gusto capsules and some brief tips so that you always find the best price when buying your Dolce Gusto capsules.
Where can I buy cheap Dolce Gusto capsules?
First of all, you should always consider compatible Dolce Gusto capsules, as explained in the article we link to. Not everyone likes their taste, but they are still an alternative to consider if you are looking to buy cheap Dolce Gusto capsules online.
The first place to go to buy cheap Dolce Gusto coffee capsules is the official Dolce Gusto online store itself. There you will find packs of 16 Dolce Gusto capsules at £4.85, which is 30 cents per capsule, which is what we can consider a “standard” price for Dolce Gusto capsules.
But beware, because to this amount we must add the shipping costs, which are typical £6, and which we can save if our order is over £29.10. Besides, if we order more than £58.20, Dolce Gusto gives us a box of 16 capsules for free, so the total price per capsule can be considerably reduced.
Please also note that if you are a member of the Dolce Gusto club, although the points program no longer exists, you can benefit from a 10% discount on your purchases.
Cheap Dolce Gusto capsules in supermarkets
The other option is to buy Dolce Gusto capsules directly from our supermarkets and department stores.
Here the price varies, although it is usually cheaper than in the official store. The disadvantage, of course, is that we cannot find all the varieties we want, only the most common ones.
The price of the 16-capsule pack ranges from £4.85 (30 cents per capsule) to £4.60 (28 cents per capsule) or even £4.40 (27 cents per capsule). There are also some 30-packs at £7.70 in supermarkets, which cost us 25.6 cents per capsule.
Although without a doubt, the cheapest option is to remain very attentive to the promotions and offers of these large stores, especially in supermarkets, where sometimes we find 3×2 promotions that are a real bargain and that we recommend to take advantage of to the maximum.
- One of the most classic coffee pod drinks, Café au Lait has the iconic taste of milky coffee that’s brilliant for any occasion – from the everyday to the extra special
- We think it’s especially yummy in the morning as a breakfast accompaniment, but these milky pod coffees are fantastic at any time of the day
- Each box contains 30 pods designed for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto pod coffee machines for you to prepare 90 mugs of Café Au Lait Coffee
- All of the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto pods are fully recyclable via Podback
On the other hand, there are other websites specialized in selling Dolce Gusto capsules that should always be taken into account. They usually buy Dolce Gusto capsules in bulk, and since they have large quantities, they can get excellent prices.
For example, the cheapest that we could find were packs of 16 Dolce Gusto capsules at £4.21 each (though you have to order at least three units, 48 capsules in total, and they only have the most common varieties). With this option, the capsule comes at a very competitive price of 26 cents per capsule. The offers on this website vary greatly, but we have seen packs of 16 capsules at £3.61 (22 cents per capsule).
In any case, the most complete and varied offer is available in our own Dolce Gusto capsule online store.
Cheap Dolce Gusto capsules on Amazon
The great capsule offers on Amazon are not always available on this website. As you know, Amazon removes or puts in offers depending on the demand of its users or the stock it has of a particular product. These very lush offers usually have a limited duration as few units of the products in question are put on sale. To find out at this very moment if there are offers of cheap Dolce Gusto capsules available, go to Amazon and see for yourself by clicking HERE. If you find a bargain, don’t let it go!
Another more comfortable option is to dive into Amazon to find great deals or mass purchases, like these:

Even if they are not precisely cheap Dolce Gusto capsules, if you have a discerning palate or want to surprise with an exclusive gift, don’t forget to try the premium Dallmayr Prodomo Arabica coffee capsules and Dallmayr Crema d’Oro.
As we have already said many times, the great advantage of shopping at Amazon is that it is the most reliable online shop in the world, and within 24/48 hours, you have all your capsules at your doorstep. Without a doubt, this is the best alternative for purchasing large quantities of Dolce Gusto capsules.
