Costco Shoppers Are Obsessed With This Affordable Coffee Mug Set

Whether you're trying to furnish a new kitchen on the cheap or you're looking for an easy, affordable gift for the coffee lover in your life, you can't beat the value on this coffee mug set available now at Costco. It costs just $9.99 for this super convenient mug stand and four of these mugs. That comes out to less than $2.50 per mug, even if you don't count the stand (and the stands alone might typically retail for $15 minimum). 

The set was spotted by Instagram Costco maven Costco Buys, who posted this caption with raising hands and hart-eye emojis: "Check out this over and back 4 mug set! I'm loving the colors and designs, plus the mugs are stackable and they come with the rack! ($9.99)."

The post shows the mug set in two different color schemes — a colorful set with mugs in red, green, yellow, and blue for those who like their kitchens bright and vibrant, and a muted set with black and white designs for those whose taste is more minimal. 

Buying in-store versus buying online

This absolute steal is even more affordable in-store than it is on Costco's website, where it's currently selling for $14.99. That means that when you buy it in person, you're getting about 50% off of an already super budget-friendly product.

These stoneware mugs, coated in a wax-resistant glaze to give them their textured patterns, are dishwasher safe and microwave friendly. If you think the price is too good to be true, and that maybe the mugs themselves are of terrible quality, think again. They have an average star rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars on Costco's site, with customers raving, "Even better in person. Great quality," and "We love it. It brings color to our kitchen."

While you're buying yourself some new mugs or present-buying for your caffeine-loving friend, consider picking up some of Kirkland's coffee or a box of Starbucks Nespresso pods while you're at Costco for one-stop coffee shopping.
