September 29 is National Coffee Day. Does this make you excited? It’s, probably, my favorite non-holiday holiday. I mean, it’s a holiday to coffee chains. But it’s not like Christmas. This is just a National Day turned celebration, and I’m here for it. I like it a lot more than, say, National Take Out Your Recycles Day.

Which I just made up to make a point.

Except I didn’t make it up.

It’s November 15. Seriously. That’s “America Recycles Day.”

I like recycling, I really do, but I like coffee so much more. And if you’re with me on that, you’re in luck. To celebrate National Coffee Day, there are a bunch of coffee shops and stores giving out free coffee and more. Check out the list we put together below to find this year’s National Coffee Day deals.

Coffee Discounts:

A lot of coffee shops (and places that sell drinks) offer a discount when you bring your own travel mugs. Find out where you can save and how much you can save in that link above.

Coffee Drink Recipes:

If you like drinking coffee, you probably have a favorite way to drink it. If I’m at home, I drink coffee with a little bit of sugar and no milk or creamer.

But sometimes, I like to make my own fancy coffeehouse drinks. Because why not.

If you want to try a few, check out our list of coffee recipes below:

And, next time you’re at a hotel, try out our hack of How To Make The Perfect Mocha … In A Hotel.

These coffee and chocolate cupcakes are only 3 ingredients -- and have a full cup of coffee in the batter. Get the recipe at

Recipes Using Coffee:

You can actually use coffee as an ingredient in recipes too. So you’re not only drinking your coffee, you’re eating it. And that’s fine by me.

If you want to bake with coffee, try our Coffee Cake with Hazelnut Coffee Glaze and our Coffee And Chocolate Cupcakes.

Coffee Projects:

If you want to celebrate National Coffee Day by being a little crafty, I get it. I’ve actually made a few crafts that were coffee inspired.

Be mindful of a store’s minimum cart total to qualify for free shipping. Also, consider instore or curbside pickup to avoid shipping charges.

I wish I had seen these earlier. National Coffee Day would be the perfect capper for the kind of week I have gone through. It's been kind of rough and coffee would help so much.
