Marketers and industry groups have been hijacking the calendar for years, claiming so-and-so date is National [Something] Day. Today, September 29, happens to be National Coffee Day—a completely made-up “holiday.” But hey, as far as made-up holidays go, you could do worse than one for coffee.
And in honor of National Coffee Day, coffee chains around the country are running deals where you can get free or low-cost coffee just for stopping by. We’ve rounded up those deals for some of the biggest chains below. But do note that many independent coffee shops are likely offering deals or freebies for National Coffee Day, too, so make sure to check out your favorite local indie coffeehouse before swinging by a chain shop to grab your free (or cheap) cup of joe.
That being said, here are some of the bigger chains offering deals on National Coffee Day:
