Of all the made-up-but-totally-great holidays out there, this is definitely one of our faves: Tomorrow, September 29, is National Coffee Day (isn't it always?), which means you can score your daily pick-me-up for free (or at least for less) at So. Many. Places.
While noticeably absent from the list is Starbucks (the company will instead be highlighting the farmers who make all that java possible over the next three days), here's who will be offering your cup of joe with a side of *deal*:
7-Eleven: It's not just National Coffee Day, it's CofFREE Day at participating 7-Elevens, where medium-sized fresh-brewed hot coffee is free from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Atlas Coffee Club: Get your first bag of coffee free when signing up for this coffee club, which features blends from a new country each month. Use code "AtlasCoffeeDay17"; shipping still applies.
