Are you obsessed with coffee? Well, your favorite not-entirely-real holiday is right around the corner!

National Coffee Day is Saturday, Sept. 29, and some of your favorite coffee spots around the country are offering freebies and deals on your next cup of joe. We’ve rounded up some of the best chain cafes — many of which have locations nationwide — to celebrate our love of caffeine and the delicious flavor of coffee. Be sure not to miss out on these deals!

Dunkin Donuts

At Dunkin Donuts, customers who purchase a hot coffee at participating stores nationwide will get one hot coffee, of equal or lesser value, for free. Unfortunately, National Coffee Day doesn’t fall at the same time as National Doughnut Day.

The convenience-store chain is offering free coffee with the purchase of a breakfast sandwich that’s at least $2 on Sept. 29. 7‑Eleven stores are also celebrating by giving a free any-size cup of coffee to its 7Rewards members.


Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme is more known for doughnuts but is going all out for National Coffee Day! In addition to a free hot or iced coffee of any size on Sept. 29, Krispy Kreme rewards members get a free doughnut, too! The chain is also offering a coffee-glaze donut for one week starting Sept. 24. and an original, glazed-coffee flavor to go along with it.
