In the spirit of National Coffee Day, it’s time to celebrate the one drink that many of us rely on to get through life. So whether you choose to down one cup too many or just enjoy one really good cup of java, let yourself take a moment to appreciate coffee.
And what better way to celebrate than with free stuff? Find out how to get free coffee ASAP, because there’s only so much time in the day to drink it all up.
1. Show up at Krispy Kreme
There may only be a few Krispy Kreme stores in Canada, but it’s worth the trek today. Especially since there’s a free donut and small coffee in it for you.

2. Get ahold of a special Tim Card (and then pass it on)
Timmies just released 100 limited edition Tim Cards that give out an unlimited free coffee (any size). So if you happen to get ahold of one, treat yourself to your daily amount of caffeine, and then pass on the card to a friend or stranger.

3. Visit Dunkin’ Donuts
Calling all Canadians: Dunkin’ Donuts is offering 66-cent medium coffees for the day. And no, Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t just in the U.S. There are actually a couple of branches in Quebec too, which means you’re in luck!

4. Wawa’s got you covered
So maybe we don’t have Wawa here in Canada. But so what? They’re offering free coffee of any size, so why not take a spontaneous day-trip across the boarder to get yourself an extra freebie. Again, it’s free.

5. Spend the whole day in the states
Wawa isn’t the only coffee joint in the states offering up some free caffeine. If you’re prepared for a bit of a road trip, you can hit up anything from Cumberland Farms to Peet’s Coffee.
6. Costa Coffee at Shell
Even if gas station coffee isn’t typically your go-to, you can get a free custom drink from a Costa Coffee self-serve station (100 free coffees per station).

7. Order a pound of Death Wish coffee
If you like a strong blend, order some Death Wish coffee. While you do have to pay for your own pack, they’ll match however much coffee you buy and donate it to charity. It’s still free coffee, just not for you.

8. Starbucks just beat free coffee
While you may feel a bit down since Starbucks isn’t giving out free coffee this year, they’re doing something even better. For every bag of coffee you buy today, Starbucks will make a 70-cent donation to grow coffee trees. In other words, if you splurge on some coffee now, you’re investing in your future free coffee. Worth it.

9. Pilot Flying J
If you’re cruising on a highway down in the U.S., take a pit stop and pick up yet another free cup of coffee. Because you can never have too much, right?

10. 7-Eleven Canada’s giving out coffee next week
When your free coffee-filled day comes to an end, don’t get too mopey. Not when 7-Eleven will be giving their rewards members free coffee next week. Why have a National Coffee Day when you could have a National Coffee Week?
