It’s National Coffee Day! The drink that helps many make it through their morning routine. And several retailers are offering free coffee on this national day of celebration.
Dunkin’ Donuts: Free Medium hot or iced coffee
Krispy Kreme Donuts: Free small coffee and glazed donut
Panera Bread: Rewards members have been able to get a free coffee every day of September, and that deal continues for National Coffee Day.
And Staples is getting into it with a social media contest:
Then there’s coffee giant Starbucks. The chain says it is celebrating the day, not with a free coffee, but by launching a new initiative. The “Starbucks One Tree for Every Bag Commitment” will happen over the next year. Each time someone buys a bag of coffee in a Starbucks store, a tree will be planted in a community that needs one. Starbucks is also planting 1 million coffee trees in farming communities that need help.
In honor of National Coffee Day, we decided to go looking for other names for the “beloved brew.” Here’s a list of 20 from coffee.org:
- Go Juice
- Jitter Juice
- Bean Juice
- Brain Juice
- High Octane
- Wakey Juice
- Morning Jolt
