Whether you call it Coffee Day, National Coffee Day, or International Coffee day, this global “holiday” means one thing to North Americans: a free cup of joe.

So in honor of the sacred day, we’ve rounded up every caffeinated freebie and discount we could find. (If you know of one we missed, leave a comment below or share on Facebook.)

No coupons or purchases are necessary to redeem these offers unless specified. But not all chain locations participate, so you may want to call ahead.

Besides these chains and big brand names, it also can’t hurt to ask – or haggle with – your local coffee place about National Coffee Day freebies and discounts. This year, you’ll find them everywhere from theSouthern Food & Beverage Museum in New Orleans to the Friends Business Source office supply store in Findlay, Ohio.
