Dunkin' Donuts Coffee

I have an affinity for Dunkin' Donuts hazelnut coffee. But the closest Dunkin' Donuts to me, by geography, is in Champagne-Urbana IL; the closest by time is Chicago O'Hare airport.

I was excited when they announced that they would start selling their coffee in grocery stores. However, it costs $7.99 per 12 oz bag ($10.67/lb.)! I decided to see how much it cost on their website. Here's the breakdown:

Pounds Price S&H Total Price/lb.
1 $5.49 $7.00 $12.49
10 $54.90 $11.55 $6.65
20 $109.80 $19.02 $6.44
50 $274.50 $40.81 $6.31
500 $2,745.00 $352.35 $6.20
1000 $5,490.00 $700.89 $6.19

Clearly, buying 1000lbs at a time is the best deal. Seriously, why can you even do this on their website? Anyone feel like ordering even 50 pounds to see what happens?

Once we buy a house, I'll order 50 lbs and let you know what happens.
