LaMar's Donuts

LaMar's Donuts is celebrating #NationalCoffeeDay by giving out a free cup of coffee to their customers. That's a 100%, no strings attached, no coupon needed, free cup of coffee, people. Am I making myself clear? I suddenly feel the need to wield a megaphone.


Pilot Flying J

The only currency you'll need for a cup of Pilot Flying J coffee this morning is THIS coupon that's good for a free small cup of coffee, hot tea or cappuccino. It's practically like using Monopoly money IRL.


Birch Coffee

This NYC based coffee house loves you … they told us so. And to commemorate that love, they're offering up a free cup of drip coffee from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Plan your route to school accordingly.


Cumberland Farms

Thumbs at the ready! Text the code, FREECOFFEE to 64827 to get your coupon for a free hot or iced coffee any size. Like, why would we ask for anything less than the largest size available? It's free, after all.



Wa-wa-what did you say about free coffee? The east coast can rejoice! A free cup of coffee, any size, is being handed out at hundreds of participating Wawa locations for one day only.



Okay, so you may not be able to get yourself a freebie from your favorite Starbucks branch. But Seattle's famous chain is adding a little altruism into every cup of Mexico Chipas coffee ordered on National Coffee Day. For every brew, the joint will be donating one coffee tree to combat coffee rust, a fungus that targets the leaves and devastates crops.



Huh? What do you mean, Staples? Well get this: Everyone's favorite office and school supply store is celebrating National Coffee Day, too. Because what's hard work without a coffee companion?

To win a free coffee prize pack, post a photo of yourself with your favorite mug to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #OfficeMugShot. Don't forget to tag @Staples in your pic!
