Nespresso Welcome Gift

Nespresso has an exclusive welcome gift for anyone in the US that creates an online account on their site and makes a purchase of at least 10 sleeves of capsules. (Each sleeve usually contains 10 capsules.)

If you already have a Nespresso account, you can still get the welcome gift if you have made less than 3 orders in the past.

If you have an account and made over 3 orders, but got a new Nespresso machine, you can contact customer service and they should be able to let you get a welcome gift as long as you purchase the 10 sleeves.

Or, you can create a new account using a different email address and use the promo code.

Whether you’ve purchased a Nespresso machine new from Nespresso, on Amazon, or purchased it used, you can get the welcome gift.

There are 2 different welcome gifts. One is for Vertuo machine customers and the other is for people who have the Original machine.

What’s inside the welcome gift:

  • 2 glass mugs with the Nespresso logo
    Mugs depends on if you get the Vertuo welcome gift or the Original welcome gift.
  • 2 coasters
    The design on the coasters change every so often, but are always artistic and feature colorful, coffee-related illustrations.
  • 1 sleeve of Nespresso’s latest coffee capsules
    The sleeve of capsules will be for either a Vertuo or Original machine, depending on which code you use to redeem the welcome gift.
  • 1 recycling bag
    The recycling bag can hold up to 150 used pods, and Nespresso pays the return shipping.

Note: New Yorkers can leave their Nespresso pods in their curbside recycling bin and do not need to use the Nespresso recycling bag.

Once logged in, select 10 (or more) coffee capsule sleeves.

You will need to order at least 10 sleeves to get the welcome gift. You cannot purchase capsules individually.

  2. Choose the number of capsules to buy. Click on 10 for 1 sleeve, 20 for 2 sleeves, etc. (Your Bag will keep track of your order’s quantity by the number of capsules, not sleeves.)
  3. Once you have added 10 sleeves or more, click on Your Bag in the top right of the screen. (To remove a sleeve, click on 0 and it’ll be removed from Your Bag.)
  4. Verify the capsules you selected are all on the list, then click Checkout.

Do I Really Have To Buy 10 Sleeves?

To get the welcome gift, yes, you’ll need to purchase 10 sleeves.

If you drink coffee daily, you will go through those 10 sleeves of capsules pretty quickly.

But, if you’re hesitant in ordering so many sleeves at once, you can place 2 smaller orders and use the welcome gift promo on your 3rd order. (You can use your welcome gift promo up until the 3rd order on a new account.)

If you’re not sure which capsule sleeves to get, try the Original 100 Capsule Discovery Pack, which is an assortment of their bestselling sleeves. It’s 10 sleeves with 10 capsules in each sleeve.

Nespresso capsules generally stay fresh for a long time so you don’t have to worry about the coffee going stale.

Questions You May Have

Is the welcome gift worth it?

If you drink coffee daily, then the answer is yes. You’ll most likely end up ordering 10 sleeves anyway, so might as well order it all at once and get the welcome gift.

I have ordered from Nespresso before, can I claim the welcome gift?

As long as you have placed 3 orders or fewer, you can use the welcome gift promo code on your next order of 100 capsules or more. If you’ve exceeded the 3 orders, you can try contacting customer service to see if they’ll let you get the welcome gift or you can create a whole new account using a different email address.

Can I get more than one welcome gift?

The promotion is one per customer account. So even if you place a second order for 10 sleeves, you will only be able to use the welcome gift code once.

Can I order the mugs from the welcome gift on their own?

Yes, on the Nespresso site under Accessories, you’ll find a selection of mugs and cups that are all branded with the Nespresso logo.
