Fire up the beans and get the water hot, it's National Coffee Day. To celebrate, chains across the country are offering free or steeply discounted java to customers. Here's a roundup of some of the more popular stores offering special deals:
Dunkin' Donuts: Free medium cup of hot or iced Dark Roast coffee. While the chain is also offering its rewards club members a free coupon through the Dunkin' mobile app, a spokesperson confirmed the coupon is not required to get the free coffee.
Krispy Kreme: Free 12 oz cup of joe and a free glazed doughnut.
Panera Bread: For the entire month of September, rewards members have been able to get a free hot or ice coffee.
Starbucks: Whomp whomp. The chain is not playing along and offering any free coffee. Sorry.
Wawa: The Northeast regional convenience store with a cult following is offering free self-serve hot coffee up to 24 oz.
Whole Foods: Through Wednesday, the grocery chain is selling 12-oz cups for just $.25.
