National Coffee Day
Today, September 29, 2013 is National Coffee Day. Here are the coffee shops that will give you a complimentary cup of Joe this weekend.
Dunkin’ Donuts is doing a whole range of promotions for the day. You can get a free small coffee — hot or iced — when you redeem the offer on the Dunkin’ Donuts mobile app. It’s also discounting the price on its K-Cups and one-pound bags of coffee. Oh, and it got NASDAQ to change its name to NASDDAQ for the day on Friday, when the company came in to ring the opening bell.
APlus at Sunoco didn’t rename any stock exchanges, but it’s going bigger on the free coffee. You’ll be able to get a free 16-ounce coffee from any of the gas station’s retail locations, and the offer will be available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Just get the deal through its Facebook page.
Krispy Kreme is getting in on the action, too. Go into any participating Krispy Kreme and you’ll get a free 12-ounce coffee. And if you want something a little fancier, many locations are also offering mochas, lattes and iced coffee for just $1. You can also enter a contest that can win you a free large cup of coffee every week for a year, plus a travel mug.
Starbucks is giving out free coffee, though not much of it. It’s using the day as an excuse to give out samples of its new “Ethiopia” coffee blend, but we imagine those will be tiny samples that aren’t enough to give you a proper caffeine fix.
