50+ Places to Get Free Coffee on National Coffee Day 2024 (9/29)

50+ Places to Get Free Coffee on National Coffee Day!

National Coffee Day is Thursday, September 29, 2024, in the United States. If you love coffee like we do, then join us in celebrating this wonderful caffeinated beverage! I can remember my great grandmother having her friends and family over for coffee. It was not only a time to recharge, it was a chance to catch up with people you love. My dad has always “gone for coffee” with friends and neighbors at the local cafe in my small town. They’d laugh, catch up on local news, and reminisce about old times. It didn’t matter who you voted for or what you believe, it was a way of connecting and socializing like no other.

So, to honor our beloved coffee, we’ve put together a big list of restaurants and stores that will give you a free or discounted Cup of Joe on National Coffee Day. Additionally, not all of the freebies and deals begin or end on September 29th. Some even continue through the end of October!
