For some of us, every day is coffee day, but there actually is an official National Coffee Day, and it’s happening this Sunday, September 29th. Here are the best deals and discounts on coffee at coffee shops, restaurant groups and sites.

Dunkin’ Donuts: You didn’t expect this 15,000 location-strong international coffee haven to miss out on National Coffee Day, did you? Double down on September 29th, when Dunks offers buy-one-get-one (of equal or lesser value). Bostonians, who love their Dunkin’ Donuts, say the go-to is a Medium Coffee Regular, which includes three creams and three sugars.

Intelligentsia: With locations in Chicago, Boston, NYC, Austin and L.A., this hipster-approved coffee hub will offer free drip coffee with a purchase of $10 or more, and there’s free shipping on online orders of two 12-ounce bags of coffee.

Le Pain Quotidien: If you bring your own mug to one of the 99 nationwide locations, Le Pain Quotidien will fill it with a complimentary helping of coffee.

7-Eleven: National Coffee Day literally lasts all day at this 24-hour convenience behemoth. By downloading the 7Rewards app, you can purchase any size of coffee for only $1, from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

White Castle: Even if you’re only really in it for burgers, know that the purchase of any item at White Castle comes with a free cup of coffee (as long as you print out the online coupon) on coffee day.

WaWa: WaWa Rewards members will get a coupon for a free cup of coffee added to their account, which can be redeemed on National Coffee Day.

Keurig: How’s this for an out-of-the-box promotion? Anyone with the name Joe (or various versions, such as Josephine) who was born on September 29th can visit Keurig’s website before the big day, and fill out an application proving they were born on that day. If selected, they’ll win a Keurig K-Duo and year’s supply of K-Cup Pods, as a coffee-themed birthday gift!

Krispy Kreme: Krispy Kreme is upping the ante on September 29th by giving out free cups of coffee AND a free original glazed doughnut. While you’re there, consider trying their newest creation — a Coffee Kreme doughnut, of course.

QuickChek: By downloading the QC app, visitors will receive a coupon for a free coffee (also good for a fountain drink).

Stewart's Shops: East Coasters have yet another reason to frequent their local Stewart’s Shop, as they can choose a gratis coffee of any size, flavor or temperature (even cold brew!) from noon to close.

LaMar’s Donuts: Not anywhere near a Stewart’s? Western U.S. residents aren’t left out of the National Coffee Day fun, thanks to LaMar’s Donuts, and their offer of a free small cup of coffee.

Barnes & Noble: It’s all about books and brews at Barnes & Noble, which will be offering free tall cups of hot or iced coffee all day.
