The Best Free Deals for National Coffee Day

And it's our favorite type of coffee: FREE!

Looking to snag a free cup of coffee to celebrate National Coffee Day? We don’t blame you! This Tuesday, Sept. 29, the nation will celebrate the real MVP of every morning—coffee. But not first thing in the morning; in fact, this is the right time to drink your coffee, according to scientists.

Some brands will even be handing out free coffee to celebrate! So if you’re looking for a cup of delicious joe that will make any city the best city for coffee to enjoy on this monumental holiday, here’s where you need to go.

Atlas Coffee Club

If you’re a true connoisseur of all things bean juice, get a free first bag of Premium Single Origin coffee with your subscription to Atlas Coffee Club. To cash in on this deal, all you need to do is cover shipping and enter the discount code “AtlasCoffeeDay20” right now through the end of September 29.

Barnes & Noble Cafés

Buy anything from the bake case—like a pound cake perfect for this morning’s pick-me-up—at in-store cafés, and you’ll earn yourself a free tall coffee on the house. (And yes, that can come either hot or iced!)

Caribou Coffee

While you may not get a free coffee with this deal, you will get 50% off any bag of prepackaged coffee beans when you buy a large beverage. Almost makes you want to buy two, huh?

Corner Bakery Café

Don’t feel like drinking a hot cup of coffee on National Coffee Day? Corner Bakery Café is offering an option for their free coffee—hand-roasted coffee or cold brew at any size—every day through October! All loyalty members have to do is sign up for free coffee by 11:59 PM on October 4th. You can sign up using the Corner Bakery Café site.

Cumberland Farms

Just download the Cumberland Farms coupon, and that free coffee is yours! Text FREECOFFEE to 64827 on Sept. 29.


It’s BOGO over at Dunkin’. Buy anything from Dunkin’ today, and you’ll score yourself a free, medium hot or iced coffee on National Coffee Day.

Krispy Kreme

If you’ve got a hankerin’, you can head over to Krispy Kreme for a free coffee anytime on National Coffee Day. Members get an extra perk, though—with every free coffee, membership holders will also get a free doughnut of their choice. (That includes the pumpkin spice doughnuts…)


Okay, so this isn’t technically free coffee (or strictly available on National Coffee Day), but with any five McCafe beverages and the McDonald’s app, you’ll land yourself a free McCafe drink of your choice. Unfortunately, this deal doesn’t seem to include the new McFlurry.


Drumroll please…for this National Coffee Day, Starbucks will be rewarding anyone who pays with the app for a Grande or larger a free drink they can cash in on anytime. Yup—that free coffee will load straight into your account, making that Starbucks membership so much more worth it. You can also cash in by playing Starland, the game members can play now through October 28 for the chance to win 2.5 million prizes, like free coffee, food and, well, more stars!
