Though every cup of coffee you brew to get you going may seem worthy of a celebration, there’s an actual holiday for the caffeinated beverage. Yep, National Coffee Day is on Thursday, Sept. 29, and it’s basically an excuse to score as many deals as you can. There are offers on packaged coffee and to-go sips from your favorite spots, so you can make the National Coffee Day deals extend beyond Thursday. Here are all the spots you can score free coffee (and some that’ll even throw in a doughnut).

With PSL season in full swing, the java deals couldn’t come at a better time. From Dunkin’ to Krispy Kreme, you can get your coffee iced or hot, but make sure to double-check before going all in on pumpkin — some offers may charge extra for the gourd-inspired addition. Coffee companies like Grounds & Hounds and Death With Coffee will keep you caffeinated well beyond Sept. 29 with their deals on bagged coffee. Without further ado, here are all the deals you won’t want to miss on National Coffee Day.
