Just wanted to let you know about a few free coffee offers that are currently available and a coupon I just spotted today.

  1. Starbucks is offering a free brewed coffee this Thursday, April 15, 2010 when you bring in your own reusable travel mug. More details are here. To find a Starbucks near you click hereThanks Mrs. MoneySaver!
  2. Corner Bakery Cafe is offering Facebook fans a free cup of hand-roasted coffee for you and a friend! Click here to become a Facebook fan of Corner Bakery Cafe and click on the “Connect” tab. This offer runs through April 26, 2010. It looks like you may be limited in choosing a friend who is also on Facebook. To find a Corner Bakery Cafe near you click here. (on a side note, I signed up to be a FB fan of Corner Bakery Cafe back for their free panini promotion early last month and am loving the freebies from them so far!)
  3. McDonald’s issued a free small frappe coupon (no purchase necessary) in the Red Plum mailer I received today (McDonalds flyer “Spring Savings. No Shovel Required”. Printed and distributed by Valassis on 4/11/2010 for VA Manassas/Centreville/N Fairfax). Coupon expires 5/9/2010 and is valid only at participating McDonald’s restaurants in the Greater Washington DC metro area.
  4. Dunkin Donuts issued a free small (16 oz.) iced coffee or iced latte coupon (no purchase necessary) in the Smart Source insert from Sun. 4/11/2010 (found locally in the Sunday edition Washington Post, Washington Examiner and Wed. edition Fairfax Times). Coupon expires 5/2/2010. Good at participating Greater DC area store locations. Thanks to my friend Holly and my wonderful sister Marie for pointing this great coupon out to me!

Know of any other free coffee offers that I missed? Please leave a comment and let me know!

Spring Savings No Shovel Required McDonalds, I live in Fredericksburg, why do I have to travel to DC Metro areas to use it or does that include Fredericksburg too ?

Hi Leah, thanks for the comment! Good question. The Redplum mailer coupons vary by area, so this may be a coupon that was just delivered to the Manassas/Centreville/N Fairfax area and some other “DC Metro” area locations. It appears that the DC area McDonald’s issued this specific coupon only for their stores, but you should check your mailbox and see if you received anything similar for the Fredericksburg area. Since coupons are a form of marketing for companies, they can get really specific in what target areas they want to send coupons/market to. It’s definitely a bummer when there’s a hot coupon in one part of VA and not in other parts. But keep your eyes peeled and if you do receive a coupon, read the fine print on valid locations, and call your local store if you have any questions on if that location qualifies. Hope that helps!

Hey big sis!
In the coupon insert smart source that came in my Sunday Washington Examiner I found a coupon for a free small iced coffee or late from Dunkin Donuts

Thanks sis, for pointing that out. I’ll add that to my list. My friend Holly had mentioned that coupon to me too, but since I was out-of-town this past weekend I have not had time to really investigate my coupons from Sunday. But it looks like the DD coupon for a free small (16 oz.) Iced Coffee or Iced Latte should be in the Smart Source 4/11/2010 in both the Washington Post, Washington Examiner and should be in this week’s Fairfax Times as well!
