Black Friday: a shopping day dedicated to the frenzied, hyper, and overstressed. Sounds like a bunch of coffee drinkers, right? That’s what several of our favorite coffee establishments thought, too. Along with 7-Eleven’s Black Friday deal — a free cup of any size coffee with purchase of a Red Bull Energy Drink — we found several great coffee-related, holiday offers. Here are some of the best coffee deals, freebies, and sweepstakes to make your Black Friday experience a little more relaxing.
Dunkin’ Donuts knows you need your coffee; more than 2,000 stores will be open for 24 hours over the holiday, with others opening as early as 12:00 a.m. The store is also holding a Twitter sweepstakes to give away Keurig brewers and boxes of its new Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup flavors, Peppermint Mocha and Hot Cocoa. To enter, fans only have to tweet to @DunkinDonuts with the message #DDKCUPS. Six winners will be randomly selected, so get tweeting from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. this Friday.
Bargain shoppers, rejoice! Starbucks is working with Walgreens to bring you great deals on its Doubleshot Energy Coffee products. Beginning on Black Friday and extending through Sunday, November 25th, all customers using the new Walgreens mobile app can “swipe to reveal” local Walgreens’s deals and discounts on Starbucks products.
What better day to give thanks for the overworked employees of the holiday weekend? Seattle’s Best Coffee is recognizing all retail workers on Black Friday with cups of free coffee, and we can’t imagine anyone more deserving (or more in need of a little caffeine!). Additionally, all shoppers can get discounts on coffee at their cafes throughout the day.
All we can say is good luck and drink up.
