How to get a free cup of coffee on National Coffee Day 2016

According to whoever makes up faux holidays, today is National Coffee Day and your chance to get a free cup of Joe at once of your favorite national chains!

If you thought National Coffee Day might have come early, it's probably because you're confusing it with International Coffee Day… which is October 1st. And totally understandable, I mix up my National and International faux holidays all. the. time.

Here's how to get a cup of coffee at some widely popular chains. (double check your local chains too, they are probably participating too!)

Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme will not only give you a free 12-ounce cup of coffee but you can pick up a free glazed doughnut too! Full details here and you can find a location near you using their location search here.

Dunkin' Donuts

If you don't like free or just absolutely LOVE Dunkin' Donuts, they've cut the price of their medium coffee to just 66 cents. It's to celebrate their 66-years of business so it's not free but it's pretty darn close.

Walk into a Wawa and walk out with a Free Any Size Coffee All Day for All Customers. Wawa has 730 locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Florida and at any location, you can just waltz in, full up your cup, and walk out.

And you can do it multiple times a day and get any free size coffee you want. Check out the press release.

Starbucks won't give you a free cup of coffee. 🙁 Instead, for every cup of Mexico Chiapas coffee purchased today the company will donate a coffee tree. You can learn more about the program here.

Pilot Flying J

Have a Pilot Flying J near you? Print out this coupone (available only on the 29th) and bring it to a nearby location for a free small cup of Pilot Coffee or any small hot tea or cappuccino of your choice.
