Looking to snag a free cup of coffee to celebrate National Coffee Day? We don’t blame you! This Saturday, Sept. 29, the nation will celebrate the real MVP of every morning—coffee. But not first thing in the morning; in fact, this is a the right time to drink your coffee, according to scientists.
Some brands will even be handing out free coffee to celebrate! So if you’re looking for a cup of delicious joe to enjoy on this monumental holiday, here’s where you need to go.
Barnes & Noble Cafés
Coffee and books are certainly a delectable combination, so Barnes & Noble hopped on the National Coffee Day train and will be offering a free cup of hot or iced coffee! No purchase necessary.
Caribou will hand you a free coffee of the day in any size to customers who buy a food item. Food items include bagels, sandwiches and bakery items.
Corner Bakery Café
Don’t feel like drinking a hot cup of coffee on National Coffee Day? Corner Bakery Café is offering an option for their free coffee—hand-roasted coffee or cold brew at any size! The promotion is actually happening for two days (Friday, Sept. 28, and Saturday, Sept. 29) and applies when you make any purchase at the café.
Just download the Cumberland Farms coupon, and that free coffee is yours! Text FREECOFFEE to 64827 on Sept. 29.
Einstein Bros. Bagels
Since Einstein Bros. Bagels serves Caribou Coffee, it will be holding the same promotion as Caribou. With the purchase of a food item, you can receive a free cup (any size!) of brewed coffee.
Why just enjoy a cup of coffee when you could also have a delicious doughnut? Krispy Kreme’s National Coffee Day deal doesn’t just include a free cup of coffee on Sept. 29, but you can also snag a free doughnut—including their limited-run coffee-glazed variety—if you sign up to become a Krispy Kreme member!
Although the deal isn’t specific to National Coffee Day, it’s still free coffee! If you download McDonald’s app, they have a pretty sweet BOGO deal for any medium or large McCafé beverage. However, this BOGO isn’t actually free; it’s a penny. (Because, remember, all BOGO really means is Buy One Get One—it doesn’t say how much the second one costs.)
Need to grab a new bag of coffee for home? Head to Peet’s! They are offering 25 percent off one-pound bags of beans, along with a free drip coffee (or tea!) with your purchase. Can’t make it to a Peet’s on National Coffee Day? You can still get the 25 percent off that coffee bag by using the promo code COFFEEDAY18 on Peet’s website.
Now that you have your free coffee, it’s time to cook with it using these recipes!
