Let’s be honest…every day is national coffee day. For the sake of acknowledging the Western calendar and not being a total scrooge, however, let’s go ahead and pretend like the 29th of September is any different!
There are lots of deals popping up today and only so much time to get to them all. Your endless cravings for cappuccinos just hit the jackpot.
If you’ve been itching to save a little money on your socially acceptable addiction to caffeine, you’re in luck: National Coffee Day has spurred major corporations and independently owned cafes alike to create new deals to commemorate this iconic morning staple. USA Today tallied up some of the more common locations you can expect to enjoy better deals — Dunkin Donuts is perfect for coffee aficionados on the East and West Coast, while dropping by your nearby 7-Eleven or Cinnabon might give you a nice surprise (and by nice I mean free!).
Interestingly enough, Starbucks is focusing less on popping out free lattes and more on leaving a positive impact. Delish stated the international coffee chain is using the holiday to redirect awareness to Puerto Rico and Central America after they suffered both environmental and financial crises: over two million coffee seeds as well as $20 million are being donated to help stimulate the economy. Today isn’t just a great way to appreciate all over again your favorite brew, but a way to pay it forward.
Whether you’re working on a weekend or enjoying some much-needed time off, consider swinging by your weekly hub of choice and check out their menu. You might even get some free food for your trouble! (though don’t pester baristas for deals that don’t exist…that’s not cool)
Unfortunately, I’m still working off a cold…so I’ll have to celebrate today with a good, old-fashioned mug of grocery store tea with honey.
