It is National Coffee day, and there are some stories a brewing from our favorite places to grab our java.  

First, Dunkin’ Donuts has decided to permanently drop “Donuts” from its name, effective January 2019.  Why? In a press release from September 25, Tony Weisman, Chief Marketing Officer, Dunkin’ U.S. said, “By simplifying and modernizing our name, while still paying homage to our heritage, we have an opportunity to create an incredible new energy for Dunkin’, both in and outside our stores.  We are bringing the iconic name Dunkin’ to the forefront in a bold way that brings to life how we refill optimism with each cup and bring fun, joy and delight to our customers each and every day.” a

But never you fear!  The brand might be dropping “Donuts” from the name, but they still plan to remain America’s #1 seller of the sweet, fried goodness that is donuts.

Today you can expect to get a buy one get one free hot coffee when you visit Dunkin’.  They are also running a few other promotions that you can check out at the link below.b

Next, you might think Starbucks would be jumping on the bandwagon to give out free coffee, but that is not the case.  Instead they have decided to amp up their philanthropic efforts, donating $20 million to temporarily relieve impacted smallholder farmers until the market becomes more stable.c

Here are some other great ways to score free things!
