BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- Friday, Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day and if you're lucky, you can find a free cuppa at local java joints.
Dunkin Donuts, for one, is offering a complimentary medium hot coffee when you purchase a medium or large coffee.
Prefer Mickey D's? You can get a free medium McCafé beverage when you download (or if you already have) the McDonald's app.
7-Eleven offers a similar deal. From Sept. 29 through Oct. 1, all 7Rewards members (or those who have downloaded the app) get a free coffee of any size — one a day if desired.
Starbucks, it should be noted, is not offering any special deals but is instead changing its signage to reflect the brand’s ethical sourcing commitments and coffee farmer support.
