In honor of National Coffee Day (today), several well-known coffee chains, restaurants and convenience stores across the country are offering deals and freebies for coffee lovers. Here’s everything you need to know about these deals to make the best out of them.


Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’ Donuts is offering a free medium iced or hot coffee with any purchase. However, this offer is exclusive to DD Perks members, as the company stated in an announcement. That’s not the only bummer though, apparently the chain’s Nitro Cold Brew and Cold Brew are not included in the deal. If you aren’t already a DD Perks member, you can still get the deal if you sign up on National Coffee Day!



Apparently, September 29 also happened to be Starbucks’ 50th anniversary, so the infamous coffee chain is giving away a free cup of Pike Place Roast brewed coffee to customers who bring in with them a reusable cup of up to 20 ounces. While this started on their 50th anniversary, customers will also be able to receive a free Starbucks Reserve coffee or cold brew if they bring in a reusable cup to certain Starbucks Reserve locations in Chicago, Seattle, and New York City.


Krispy Kreme

According to Krispy Kreme, the best way to enjoy your National Coffee Day cup is with a doughnut. The doughnut chain is offering its rewards members a free coffee and doughnut with no purchase necessary.



Panera is taking a different approach for National Coffee Day this year by focusing on parents. The restaurant chain said that it will be giving away free coffee to parents and caregivers all day. In order to get the free coffee, Panera said that parents and caregivers just need to let the cashier or drive-thru know that they are a parent or caregiver.



The famous convenience chain 7-Eleven is giving its 7Rewards members a free hot coffee when they purchase a fresh baked good according to their announcement. It doesn’t stop there though, 7-Eleven is also giving away a free extra large hot coffee to customers who buy something for delivery through the 7NOW app. If you use the code FREE4U, delivery will also be free.


Barnes & Noble

On Twitter, Barnes & Noble announced that they will be giving away a free tall coffee to customers who buy a baked good in any of their cafes. Simple and straight to the point.


Caribou Coffee

Caribou Coffee is launching a national subscription delivery service in celebration of National Coffee Day. The first 100 subscribers will even receive a free batch of coffee as detailed in the announcement.
