Self-Stirring Lens-Shaped Coffee Mug for $12 + $2 S&H [AAA powered]

Lens-shaped coffee mugs are everywhere these days, but what if you want to take your coffee-lensing to the next level? How about a a self-stirring coffee-shaped lens-mug? It is currently on sale for $13 plus $2 flat shipping at Stacksocial. Don’t forget to use any coupons (eg new customer) or credits you may have. The self-stirring is not powered by your love of coffee, but by two AAA batteries.

This is listed as 11 ounces, so if you are buying coffee at coffee shops, it won’t match the standard 12/16/20/24 sizes. You can try to convince them to sell you the kids size (8 oz) if they have it πŸ™‚ However, if the coffee shop has free refills (eg Starbucks Gold Rewards), then losing an extra ounce is no big deal. Then again, with some places, you don’t want to drink any more of their coffee, even with unlimited free refills πŸ™‚

If you plan to use this regularly, this 4-pack of Eneloop AAA Pre-Charged NiMHs currently goes for $7.60 at Amazon. They are not Add-ON, so Prime members get them in 2~ days without the need to buy anything else. These AAA are 750 mAh minimum (800 mAh “type”), with up to 2100 recharges. They are also eligible for “Subscribe and Save” as well. Limit one set for each purchase option.

Speaking of Stacksocial, their Pay What You Want Photography Bundle continues. $1+ gets you two classes, while meeting/beating the average price of $12.84 gets you all nine items (seven classes, two assets (stock photos to be experimented upon for class learnings)).
