Wake up! National Coffee Day 2019 is being celebrated this weekend — Sunday, September 29, to be specific.

There's no particular reason why National Coffee Day is held on September 29 every year. Like so many food "holidays" celebrated annually, it looks like the date for National Coffee Day was settled upon pretty randomly, but by now tradition has taken hold.

And the traditions on National Coffee Day consist of lots of free coffee promotions and other coffee deals, from the likes of Dunkin' Donuts, Bruegger's Bagels, Cumberland Farms, Sheetz, White Castle, and PJ's Coffee. The best National Coffee Day deal of all probably comes from Krispy Kreme — which supplies customers with free coffee and free donuts this Sunday, with no purchase required.

Does Starbucks have a National Coffee Day deal? Not exactly. But the chain is giving $0.15 to women's and girls' charities for each cup of Siren's Blend sold in U.S. stores, now through September 29.

Here are all the best National Coffee Day deals you'll find:
