Good deal but please reuse your cups and save the earth from toxic plastic
"It is cheaper to get the plastic cup every time"

Not a very good thing to say really, as we're all supposed to be cutting back on plastic.

The responsibility also lies with the retailers. Greggs haven’t thought this through if it is cheaper to buy another reusable cup rather than take the discount for reusing the one you already have.(annoyed)
Pret A Manger will give you 50p off any hot drink with ANY reusable cup(49p for a filter coffee).

Thanks for the reminder @jack.clarke and for sharing your first deal post, I'm rather partial to their Cappuccino

When it costs more to cut back in this situation it's a no brainer, if they had price to reflect reusing I have nothing against it

To be honest, the reusable cup is decent (I got mine free months ago), and if you combine the 20p off a drink (doesn't work with meal deals though) with the Greggs rewards app, it means you effectively can get 2 free cups of coffee in about 8, if you buy a plain americano or white coffee.

It's a bit like Tesco. Their packaged fruit and veg is cheaper than buying loose.
just a shame their coffee isn't the best
I saw a millenial walking along the street with no coffee in hand the other day - what is the world coming to!
do you get a discount for bringing your own cup?

In that instance their may be a difference in quality but with this it is the same coffee from the same machine(skeptical)

that I recall, plastic taints the taste of hot drinks
It would make more sense for Greggs to issue a free thermos cup, your coffee would stay warmer and help with the reduction of plastic waste.
Greggs is one of very few places which actually do a decent mocha in this country

This would be great, if Greggs coffee didn’t taste like its made in a swamp. Heat for the deal sure, but seriously... go literally anywhere else for coffee lol
Why on earth would anyone want to carry around a reusable cup.

I think their coffee is decent. The only annoyance is that they purposely charge more for a cup on its own to make you buy a breakfast or a pasty. Sometimes you just want a coffee but it’s kind of annoying turning down a load of almost free fat and wheat - even if you shouldn’t eat it.

Commuters tend to carry bags. I suspect deals like this are to catch the regular commuters and thus get regular customers.
i only get my coffee with a breakfast offer so the offer doesnt apply, be a good deal if it was included in meal deals.

saying that i believe next they be introducing a charge for cups in future

Yep and we care for the planet, at last! I want one to put in my bag to keep reusing x

Will they wash it for me?
Hot for the environmental factor, I'm all for cutting down on the use of non-recylable coffee cups. Waitrose should take note.

However the coffeecoffe is terrible, particularly if you order a large which resembles dishwater. If I must get a Greggs coffee, a regular plus extra shot is passable.

If there's a Pret nearby, then their filter coffe for £1 or 50p with own cup is far better.
Aw, the cup looked porcelain in the picture

I work on the road, I leave the house with a reusable mug of Nespresso in the morning, and get it refilled 2 or 3 times throughout the day. Saves me using 15 non-recylable cups a week.

Agreed. If a cup of coffee is £2.50 then it would be sensible to include a plastic cup with the coffee for, say, £3, then sell each subsequent cup of coffee is £2 if a plastic cup is being reused - so it's an investment of 50p to get the cup and then save an unlimited number of 50p's on coffee while helping the environment. This is just going to encourage people to buy plastic cups they don't need to save 50p on coffee.

That's if you believe everything you're told.
Man buys coffee whilst out , needs the toilet takes his reusable cup into public restroom.

Doesn't wash his hands, heads back to greggs to refill his fecal covered plastic cup....nah I'll pass might want to bleach down that coffee machine

You are right. Lets help destroy the environment because of their silly oversight.
This deal is so last summer.Been on for months.Also not really cheaper as you get a cake or pastry with paper cup coffee for £2.25.Also its not £2.50 for coffee at greggs
Greggs give you 20p off a hot drink every time you use your plastic cup
No truth in the rumour that for every cup you buy, Greggs will donate 10 plastic bags to an ocean near you ?

That’s a great point to be fair.
Might as well take me own mug along, assume this wouldn’t be allowed and has to have the Greggs branding

I doubt that's any worse than the faecal covered money that gets handed to the staff...! The only contact a coffee cup has with the machine is the base of the cup on the drip tray, and any bacteria would probably be killed by running the scalding water through the machine on to the tray (what you should do after every coffee as good practice).

Are we ? Who says we are ? If i want to cut back plastic, I will. If not, then I won't be told to by anyone ;-)

I didn't realise Greg's sold coffee online.
Point is does it stack up to Lavazza coffee? Anyone vouch for it ?... if not a waste of £2, release of manufacturers
environment toxins....and plastic.

(Had the KFC 25p hash browns today they were lovely, more onion than maccas...and ALL the paper packaging was put in paper recycling.)
