Whatever you call it, and however you drink it, coffee is credited with offering benefits ranging from a morning perk up to a longer life.

And for National Coffee Day 2018 cafés, restaurants, diners and doughnut shops around the country will be catering to caffeine cravings by offering free and discounted coffee drinks to all who stop by.

Here are some of the deals to seek out this Saturday, September 29, on National Coffee Day. Some may be restricted to participating branches or locations while there are sure to be others that pop up.

Krispy Kreme

Participating Krispy Kreme locations will offer a free coffee, any size; no purchase necessary. Current or new members of the Krispy Kreme free-to-join Rewards program get a complimentary doughnut on Saturday too.

Dunkin Donuts

At participating Dunkin Donuts (which is changing its name to simply Dunkin’), purchase one hot coffee this Saturday and get one hot coffee of equal or lesser value for free. That might give you and a friend the excuse to check out the chain’s seasonal pumpkin and maple pecan flavored coffees.
