We’ve got the goods on where to score your cheap fix in honor of such an important day.

As always, some deals might not be offered at your local restaurant or chain, so call ahead to make sure you don’t get there and face disappointment.

Giving Back

Instead of offering freebies to customers, these chains are using National Coffee Day to give back to others.

Caribou Coffee: The chain will donate a free cup of coffee to caregivers at health facilities and hospitals across the country when people purchase a cup of Amy’s Blend coffee — sales of which support CancerCare — on National Coffee Day.

Starbucks: Starbucks will donate a coffee tree for every brewed cup of México Chiapas coffee customers buy on Sept. 29.
