Good price. I find the lids of mine begin to pong quite quickly.
All SodaStream Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
not just sodastream , try posting a deal for anything that is 'premium' and you will get a deluge of posts stating that there are 'alternative items that are much cheaper', bain of hukd are those that miss the point that a deal is the price relative to typical rather than the item itself. accordingly I post very few deals else i'd just be annoyed all the time. perhaps if there was a 'block' button like on twitter ?
FYI - HUKD doesn't like Sodastream deals, I know, I've posted one before. You can also get the triple bottle pack cheaper without the foreign website hassle, albeit without the samples https://www.coolshop.co.uk/product/sodastream-soda-maker-spirit-mega-pack-incl-3-bottles/AD37GK/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwvIT5BRCqARIsAAwwD-R2Oiht9K_bLm4XtxnEebJ-6aucTNy4vy18PMk3gC-7I9LSYMi-cX0aAlneEALw_wcB
Not sure why HUKD changes price to £78..maybe price if you don't sign up for amazon prime Germany free trial. I did and cancelled immediately after
I don't use enough over a year to make refilling myself economic - but I recall someone posting that places like Majestic refill them, is that correct? Would rather do it locally than ship bottles all the time. If wine merchants did it that would be another revenue stream for them...
I rent the bottle https://www.co2supermarket.co.uk/sodastream-cylinder-refill-adapter-p520.html
Hi , I live in east london so not sure where to get the Co2 , but do you buy the bottle or rent or deposit .Also can you tell me what device you use and where to get ir please
There’s no tube. I got the cylinder and bought the regulator valve and that’s it. Previously when I researched filling the bottle that’s all I needed but I read that soda stream changed the Pin to a flat headed one to stop people refilling their bottles themselves. I will try what you said. I used the tape when my refilling attempt failed to create a tighter fit.
Is there a tube going to the bottom so it’s putting out liquid not a gas, you need to fill the cylinder with liquid. It should be obviously labelled, if not just turn the master cylinder upside down and the liquid will come out. Try turning the valve controlling flow into the soda stream bottle on a tiny bit and see if you can get liquid into it. I think the pin can only be depressed a certain amount before it will cut out and stop your fill. How come you’ve used ptfe tape on your threads? I know this is frowned upon in welding.
So clearly not a popular deal. Compared to the next cheapest one on offer, Genesis (old model) with one bottle for £15 less, I still stand by the fact that this is decent if you're looking for one.
Still cheaper than buying new cylinders though... And given the current circumstances at least it's an option
Like I say its £9.99 at the range . It's £18.98 at Soda stream with postage for one cylinder plus the £10 deposit on top ,so yes it's more expensive. The Range give you £10 back when I got one last month , think the website is wrong unless it's changed as the deposit is always £10
Don't get the Genesis. It is an old model and the newer bottles won't fit.
It's £12.99 from Soda Stream (it comes down to £9.99 if you subscribe) comparing to £14.99 in Argos and similar if not higher in Lakeland, so not sure how is that more expensive? (confused)
This deal is STILL active in June 2020
Sweet, you can create your own syrups if you wanted more complex flavours. I think im gonna get a sodastream or a different brand and give it a try, saves carrying bottled/cans of pop from the shops!
I don't use syrup, I'm really cautious of what goes in my body. I just add lemon juice and ginger. My wife adds liquid vanilla Stevia to sweeten it a little.
Have you sourced cheaper syrups than sodastream? Have any links/info?
This is some fantastic help :O
Love my sodastream. Combined with a Britta filter we don't buy plastic bottles at all. The Range does gas refills for £10 compared to 15 at Argos. Only use it for sparking water not to make cola etc.

Fill up a bottle with tap water and shake it really really hard until you see bubbles appearing
And buy lots of single use plastic?
Yeah alternative is live without one
used to be cheap way of having soda/fizzy drinks. but the syrups are far too expensive now
nice one. That's exactly what the world needs. another few hundred plastic bottles produced each year (y)
I'll stick with bottles of sparkling water.
Looks a good deal.
Love the cola flavour that's all I use in mine, cheapest refills are in the range 9.99
Amazon or sodastream? (lol)
Very shady company, I would stay away if you have morals
I'm addicted to the old Xstream energy syrup. I have to buy it by the case from Germany (lol) sodastream what have you done to me?
Posted 3 weeks ago
Even better! Will give it a go :-)
You can also exchange instore at The Range if there’s one near you. On their website it says it costs £12.99 but people have commented that they’ve exchanged and it only cost £9.99.
Thanks for the heads up on the Argos exchange. Didn’t know you could do that! X
Received today the machine is good. Gas refills slightly expensive but you can trade in a Argos for £15. Robert dyas selling syrups for £2.69 using code JAN10MVC link here free click and collect. Multiple flavours available. Thumbs up from me.
If only that was always the case... https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/aug/17/plastic-recycling-myth-what-really-happens-your-rubbish And then there's the cost problem - https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/oct/13/war-on-plastic-waste-faces-setback-as-cost-of-recycled-material-soars
Whilst I think it's a great idea, my missus would divorce me before she let me do anything like that to our kitchen. At £10 a gas bottle, I can suffer the cost :-)
Would be smart to replace your little sodastream gas bottles with a decent size one that you can refill yourself for pennies. Saving lots of money + trips to supermarket to exchange and/or postage. https://www.reddit.com/r/SodaStream/comments/fqvkor/upgraded_to_a_20lb_tank/
Got it yesterday. Nice machine. Thanks.:)
Well, maybe it would be if we could convince the Chinese and Indians to cut back on their pollution and excessive use of plastics too ;)
Also, Tesco (my one at least), will no longer deliver the 17p ones. The cheapest now is £1.60 for 4 bottles. We grabbed a Sodastream towards the end of last year, along wit the annual gas plan. We use one gas bottle a month, each costing us £10. We would usually have used 25-30 bottles over the month, which was costing us roughly £11-£12. The best part though, is our recycling bin which was always full every fortnight, is now less than half full. Heat from me.
Me to. I have one in a cupboard but don't use it as I buy the 17p lemonade 2ltr from Aldi. I burn the plastic bottles in the multifuel boiler. The only thing that goes to landfill this time of year is ash
That's the spirit. Happy New Year to you (and you alone it seems).
Soz, but I don't care, that you don't care
We love ours, use about once a week (more in summer) and we replace the gas once a year. Just buy it off sodastream and return the old canister via collect+ for a deposit refund. Really like the convenience of being able to make sparkling drinks when we want and saves all the plastic bottle waste.
Such a pointless contraption.
Just improvise with a disposable CO2 welding gas cylinder... A few videos on YouTube.
Sure is, you can pick up fizzy pop from any supermarket for dirt cheap nowadays, fifty quid plus ongoing costs mean an expensive gadget but we have all done it, in reality worth about 20 quid and that would be if you could get the gas for a round a fiver, fifty quid for a bit of plastic that requires costly gas is far tooooo much
Like wise a waste of time and money.
Mine has been in the cupboard for the last 2 years, problem is the cost of the gas £10 for a small cartridge of C02, its ok for a while but it does not last that long, I would love to find a cheaper way of doing this but 10 quid for a bit of gas is a lot of money
The same bundle would appear to be £51.99 in Argos. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8358321
I have one and it’s an ornamental piece because it’s not that great (my opinion/experience).
Just find some nice white wine and zap it...
Awe Mann - how good would that be!!!! 😝
Ordered the one with the extras included. Good to know the range have them. Are they genuine soda stream syrups or an alternative?
I'd buy the starter pack.
I buy the syrup from the range.
Looking at buying one as a gift. Which one would you go for and where is the best place to buy the syrups? Cheers (y)
We bought one on offer a couple of years ago, used it a few times initially, then didn't touch it for a few months only to find the gas had emptied itself. Rubbish.
I primarily use mine for sparkling water and it tastes great out of the fridge. A real life saver in the summer. As a treat, occasionally I’ll put a bit of Teisseire Elderflower sugar free syrup in it - because it’s quite concentrated, it makes a perfect alternative to supermarket drinks. Also, lots of saved plastic and they recycle the CO2 canisters.
I use mine I use mine for there own cola and Dr Pete as i like those flavours
Not sure. Personally, I only want one for the sparkling water. My kids may want squash in it but given the amount of sparkling water bottles I go through this will save on storage and waste whilst possibly even saving some money long term.
i love asda peach sparking water under 50p a bottle, in fact no im addicted .
Do these taste any good ? If you want flavoured drink what options are ? How does this work and do you need to add sugar etc
Hoping that now Pepsi have bought out the Israeli company, that the larger stores will stock the refills again - an bring the price down to reasonable levels again.
Got mine on a Prime deal 2 years ago and it is still going strong. We get through 8 or so large bottles a day and a CO2 canister lasts 2-3 weeks. I have never tried the flavourings, but I just like fizzy water with a LOT of fizz and this makes it far fizzier than anything you can buy. You can adjust the amount of fizz. Plus saves the planet.
i only us I only use mine for there own Cola as it tastes very nice , canisters are £9.99 for exchange at the Range cheapest i have seen them
Are these any good ? Taste wise
Got mine when sodastream were doing an offer, gas lasts quite a while and refills can be got at a lot of places (I use Argos). You can add your own flavouring, much cheaper to use squash than the proper syrups. Worth it just to do 5 presses of gas and then add a tablespoon of granulated sugar.
Makes 17 drinks - (4.9g/100mls) so 1.7 litres for £6.99 plus gas refiles sounds expensive to me https://sodastream.co.uk/collections/organic
Not disputing if they are a waste of money, was just a decent price compared to everywhere else, as if you are looking for one anyway why not get it cheaper? :3
It's hard to find the flavourings these days and they are expensive on amazon/ebay with most charging around £6-7 for a single bottle, I bought a sodastream last time they where on sale and its just lay in the kitchen as an ornament. Theyr a complete waste of money in my opinion.
The price includes a £10 canister fee which is refundable either through Sodastream direct or an outlet like B&M. If you take an empty to B&M you only pay £10 or so for the gas.
The build quality is a lightweight plastic, I wouldnt say flimsy but not heavy duty and it serves its purpose. People complaining about that should therefore buy the £90 plus metal version. The only problem I have with it leaking or not carbonating properly is for the first few attempts with a new cyclinder, the cyclinder has too much pressure but after say 2 or 3 uses its settles down to normal. You dont really need instructions, screw in the cylinder at the back. Place the bottle at the front and press the button to carbonate.Simple.
I so wanted to get this but the reviews are really bad, complaints about it being badly made and flimsy, not carbonating properly, gas and water leaking and to top it all instructions in German. Maybe it’s this particular model... shame!
Iv had this one for about 1 year now and recommend it. It saves on plastic bottles not to mention lugging them after several flights of stairs. Be careful when getting replacement gas cylinders, Iv had a few that were actually empty even when sealed. You can tell the difference as the full ones have some weight to them. I also like the Dr Pepper ( Dr Pete ) I think its called and soda cream though cant remember its alternative name but be careful when using them because if you pour it in the bottle too fast its fizzes up like mints in coke.
Get busy with the fizzy
Sodastream and Argos for £15 If it's this one you are looking at on Amazon it isn't a refill but a spare bottle
Where can you get a cylinder for £13? Cheapest I have seen is £22.99 on amazon?
Does anyone know if this is still available at this price?
Found one in Peterborough but SEL priced it at £70 and went through the till at that price too - shame!
I think it must be nationwide, I'd picked one up this week.
