TL;DR: As of June 12, you can save up to $125 on a new coffee or espresso machine during Best Buy’s sale on Nespresso Vertuo systems.
Here’s a morsel of good news for you right now: Iced coffee season is ~officially~ in full swing.
While you still might not be able to visit your local coffee shop for a chilled latte or a venti-sized vessel of cold java amid lingering social distancing restrictions, you can easily make similar drinks at home if you’ve got a Nespresso Vertuo machine on your kitchen countertop.
That “Vertuo” branding is key, by the way: Unlike “Original” Nespresso systems like the Creatista or the Essenza Mini, Vertuos are specifically designed to brew longer drinks and drip-style coffee in addition to traditional hot espresso.
Conveniently, Best Buy just kicked off a huge sale on Nespresso Vertuo systems by Breville and De’Longhi (two of the brand’s biggest manufacturing partners) that features savings of up to 50% on select machines. Click here to see all of your options, or just keep on scrolling for our lowdown on the sale’s five best deals:
Available in a sleek and shiny chrome finish, the standard 40-ounce Vertuo machine uses “Centrifusion” technology to produce a frothy crema on all of its espresso creations. Each unit comes equipped with an intelligent barcode recognition system that adjusts its brewing parameters for different kinds of drinks, and you can choose from five different cup sizes.
Snag the machine itself here for just $149.96 (down $50.03 from its $199.99 MSRP), or upgrade to a Nespresso Vertuo machine/Aeroccino milk frother bundle for $187.46 altogether (down $62.53 from its $249.99 MSRP).
The one-touch Nespresso VertuoPlus is very similar to the OG Vertuo machine — same Centrifusion technology, same barcode recognition system — only with a larger, removable 54-ounce water tank. You can order it from Best Buy in “black matte” for just $99.99, which is a solid $100 off its suggested retail price of $199.99. (Want an Aeroccino milk frother, too? That bundle will cost you just $25 more.)
De’Longhi’s VertuoPlus Deluxe is just a snazzier version of its VertuoPlus (no “Deluxe”) with flashy chrome details. Best Buy’s got it listed in “piano black” at a mere $99.99, or $100 off its usual price of $199.99 — get it here.
Before you ask: Yup, Breville’s VertuoPlus Deluxe is virtually identical to the De’Longhi version (above), just with a rounder, mod-ish design. Get it here in your choice of three colors (“piano black,” “silver,” or “titan”) for just $149.96 — a $49.99 savings. (Hot tip: You can upgrade to Breville’s “piano black” VertuoPlus Deluxe machine/milk frother bundle for the same price. 👀)
Brand new as of early 2020, the chrome-accented, 37-ounce Vertuo Next is made from 54% recycled plastics and supports Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for effortless software updates via Nespresso’s mobile app. It typically retails for $169.99, but you can buy it here for only $127.46 — a $42.53 savings.
