If you drink as much coffee as most New Yorkers, then these deals could end up saving you a lot of money. Not to mention time waiting at Starbucks.
Financial District coffee shop Daily Grind now offers unlimited coffee for $39 a month. Customers can stop by the downtown shop as often as they want to pick up regular coffee, and they also get 20% off food items when they sign up for the deal. The shop's 12oz. coffees regularly cost $3, so you’d only have to drink more than 13 cups of joe in a month in order to save money.
The monthly fee set-up is similar to Fair Folks & a Goat’s membership-based coffee program. That coffee shop, located in a basement on Houston Street, offers unlimited coffee, tea, lattes, espressos and lemonades for a mere $25 a month. The laid-back Greenwich Village spot also sells art, clothes and home accessories.
If you're looking for more variety or to discover a new local haunt, it's also possible to buy monthly unlimited coffee plans using the smartphone app CUPS. That service offers prepaid plans to local cafés, but the variety will cost you. Unlimited cups of all drink options at every CUPS location in New York will set you back $120 a month.
But before you balk, you want to take a sec to add up how much you're spending on that daily buzz now. It may still be worth it.
