My husband got a Kuerig for his birthday. While the K-Cups are very convenient we wondered how they compared to using ground coffee in the My K-Cup basket. A box of K-Cups contains 18 cups. Our bag of Tully's coffee weighed 12 ounces and we were able to get 25 cups of coffee.
K-Cups - $11.99 ($.67 per cup)
Tully's coffee - $9.99 ($.40 per cup)
So in the end, using the ground coffee was cheaper per cup and yielded more cups. Using the My K-Cup basket is a little less convenient and is a bit messy to fill and clean, but does save you money. Most Kuerig brewers come with one, but they can be purchased separately too.

You can buy a cap that fits over empty K-cup containers. Clean and refill with your favorite fine grind coffee. Brew in your machine.
You need to try the perfect pod EZ-Cup. You can still use any coffee, but it is in a filter. I love mine!
