Ah, coffee! As a commercial once sang to us, “the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup”. Can I get an Amen here?!

Friday September 29th is National Coffee Day and there are some places around town that are giving their loyal customers deals & discounts on their coffee.

Here’s a list on what national chains are participating*.


Participating Dunkin’ locations across the U.S. are offering a free hot or iced medium coffee with the purchase of any other beverage or bakery item on Friday.

Krispy Kreme

Customers at participating Krispy Kreme locations can try the chain’s new drip coffee or espresso drinks (one per customer) for free on Sept. 29, no purchase necessary. Anyone who purchases a dozen doughnuts can also buy an additional dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for just $2 more.


In honor of National Coffee Day, new subscribers (or former subscribers) who sign up for Panera’s Unlimited Sip Club between Sept. 29 and Oct. 10 can join for $99 per year (a savings of approximately $20 over the regular annual rate) or $5 per month for four months (a savings of almost $7 per month).


While not offering any national deals on coffee or drinks, select Starbucks locations are said to be hosting coffee tastings on Sept. 29. (Customers are asked to inquire with their local shops to find out who may be participating.)


While this small list is just about national chains, be sure to check with the many independently owned coffee shops here in town. We’ve got a lot of them and it doesn’t hurt to ask if they’ve got anything going on for National Coffee Day.
