Thursday is National Coffee Day! Here’s where to get a free or discounted cup

Like most Americans, you probably like to start your morning off with a cup (or two) of coffee. Today is National Coffee Day and there are lots of amazing discounts and giveaways for you to choose from!

Just how much do Americans like coffee? A study by Wakefield Research for McDonald’s found:

  • Half of frequent coffee drinkers (50%) feel that a work day without coffee would be worse than a work day with the flu.
  • Coffee is a mood-booster – there’s no denying it. 63% of coffee drinkers admit that coffee puts them in a better mood more often than their significant other.
  • Coffee drinkers feel that pumpkin spice lattes are their favorite part of fall (28%), even before leaves changing color (25%), football (22%), and Halloween (13%)

Here are some of the places we’ve confirmed that are offering specials to celebrate your caffeine addiction:

1. Krispy Kreme: Not only are they giving away a FREE 12 oz cup of coffee, you also get a FREE Original Glazed Doughnut to go along with it.

2. Dunkin’ Donuts: Buy a medium cup of hot coffee for just 66 cents.

3. Starbucks: You don’t have to feel guilty about that third cup of coffee because Starbucks is donating a coffee tree on behalf of each customer who purchases a brewed Mexico Chiapas coffee!

4. Pilot Flying J: Claim your free small cup of Pilot Coffee or any small hot tea or cappuccino of your choice. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
