September 29 is National Coffee Day. Coffee is one of America's most beloved beverages, if only because caffeine has become a necessary component of modern life. So, of course, chains across the country — from coffee shops to fast food joints to convenience stores — are jumping at the opportunity to get people through their doors with freebies and deals.
We've compiled different offers from chains across the country, giving away free coffee (or a similarly solid deal) in-store, so chug a cup of coffee right now to make sure you stay focused and then dive into this long list:
Barnes & Noble
The brick-and-mortar book giant is offering a free tall hot or iced coffee with the purchase of any baked item from any of their in-store cafes.
Royal Perks members can grab a free small iced coffee with a purchase of a dollar or more from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the BK app or on bk.com each weekday this week.
One of America's largest coffee chains is keeping things simple: DD Perks members can get a free medium hot or iced coffee with any purchase.
The doughnut chain will be giving away both coffee and doughnuts. All customers can receive a free iced or hot brewed coffee, no purchase necessary. But if you are a Krispy Kreme Rewards member, you can also score a free doughnut of your choice, again, no purchase necessary.
The Dallas-based casual dining chain with over 80 locations is offering a free regular or large drip coffee both in-restaurant or via orders placed online or through their app.
The St. Louis-based chain is hoping National Coffee Day will lure customers in for the long haul. On September 29, new subscribers to their Unlimited Sip Club — which offers unlimited coffee and other drinks for $10.99 per month — will get their first two months free. Meanwhile, existing Sip Club members will receive $2 off a single select barista beverage or smoothie through the Panera app.
Want something thicker for National Coffee Day? The smoothie chain is offering 20-ounce espresso or Cold Brew blended smoothies for $5 if you order before 11 a.m.
Ziggi's Coffee: The coffee chain from Longmont, Colorado that now has 58 locations nationwide will be giving away free coffee to customers when they purchase using their mobile app. The reward is based on their app status level: The "Fam" level will get a free 16-ounce daily brew or iced coffee. The "Insider" level will get a free 16-ounce classic or signature coffee or espresso-based drink (hot or iced). The "VIP" level will receive a free classic or signature coffee or espresso-based drink (hot or iced) of any size the like.
