Just ordered one from Sam's while they're still available. Have to wonder how they are selling them for $46.11? or maybe the question is why is Amazon still selling them for close to the MSRP of $150.

Total was $55.61 with shipping and tax.

Hard to say, but it could be that the Amazon seller got them for a high price so has to sell them so high...I have found in at least small retail businesses that the cost is sometimes higher than what you could buy at another vendor.  

For instance, in a store we used to own, there was a top rated chef's knife which will remain nameless,
(though you foodies might easily figure it out,) which we wanted to sell.  To purchase from the company it was a minimum order of $2000 I think and the price per knife worked out to about 21 dollars.  At the time, I could  get them online from a retail vendor for 28 or so each, buy two, get one free.  There were many items that I found I could buy outright cheaper than I could get them wholesale, or too close in price to care.  But I digress....


I am really glad you guys like these.  I love to find good deals at Sam's.  You know, there are more good CoffeeGeek deals to be had there.  I wonder if I should start a thread or just post them here.

Maybe I will start a new thread and hopefully will remember to link it here.

I have herd that Sams buys in bulk direct from Manufacture, maybe they figured out a way to cut cost in China with inferior parts or cheaper labor who knows. I ordered one from Sam's last week looking forward to trying it out, should be here in a couple of days I will post my experience with it. I to am am interested why something at one place sells for a $159.00 and another for $50.00 go figure good luck every body.

DeLonghi DCM900 arrived today run a couple of pots to test and clean. I am very surprised. Put the Fluke temp probe in the filter basket 204 Deg, dead on 6 min to complete 10 cups coffee taste very good No regrets on this one. ordered from Sam's $46 plus shipping, I think $6.00. I think this is a winner if it last. Best regards. Rich

I picked one up, haven't used it yet.

Went to buy another as a gift - all sold out, online.

Dunno if they will have more stock or that was the last at that price.

So far so good. Striking design, simple operation (just an on-off switch), brews quickly, easy to clean, good results in the cup. If the machine lasts, it may change my mind about DeLonghi coffee products.

Thanks to MaryAnn for bringing this bargain to our attention.

You are all very welcome!!  I am so excited about this machine!!  I would love to buy one and run it through a battery of endurance tests, but I don't have the funds.  

What other great coffeemakers are there in this price range?
