It's National Coffee Day!
Although most caffeine addicts reach for their cup of joe no matter the day, Tuesday is a chance to a get free – or discounted – fix.
Here are some businesses in Minnesota that’ll be serving up free coffee or samples for the “holiday”:
Caribou Coffee isn't giving away free coffee Tuesday, but for every cup of Amy's Blend purchased on Sept. 29, the Minnesota-based chain will donate a cup of coffee to nurses and families in cancer centers throughout the country, the Consumerist says.
Dunkin' Donuts, which recently returned to Minnesota, is offering a free medium cup of hot or iced dark roast coffee at participating locations.
Holiday Station stores
Holiday Station Stores have a coupon for 69-cent hot coffee or cappuccino through Oct. 4. They also offer free coffee on Tuesdays.
Anyone visiting a Krispy Kreme Tuesday will get a special treat with their free small coffee: a free original glazed doughnut.
Panera Bread's rewards members have been getting free coffee all month, and that deal is still in place for National Coffee Day, the Consumerist says.
OK, Staples isn't most people's go-to coffee shop, but if you post a photo on social media with your coffee mug and hashtag #OfficeMugShot, you could win a coffee prize pack. (You can also enter on Facebook.)
Starbucks, like Caribou, isn't giving away free coffee. But the chain will celebrate by honoring families and farmers behind your cup of java through it's initiative "Starbucks One Tree for Every Bag Commitment" – if you buy a bag of coffee at a Starbucks store, a tree will be planted in a community that needs one, the Consumerist says. The coffee chain is also planting 1 million coffee trees for farmers.
Anyone who stops by a participating Super America before noon gets a free cup of coffee on Tuesday.
Whole Foods stores nationwide are offering 12-ounce cups of coffee for a quarter through September.
