    For those in the upstate NY area, such as myself, Stewarts Shops is giving away free coffee all day long on Friday 9/29/23.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome! Love Stewarts! I have family up that way and I’ll be sure to pass that along! Thanks for sharing! πŸ’–πŸ™Œ

    • Elena

      I miss Stewarts best ice cream!

  2. Justina Inez

    oh! we kinda all overlooked this this year, it’s not even on their website, i usually share the info on facebook the past year or so, i think it has been a newer promo in the past few years or it might just be that our wawa is only 10ish years old and i just paid attention to it in the past 3 years or so

  3. SavingsMama

    Strabucks….Panera….I need more drive thru options lol.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We’ll keep an eye out for any more Coffee Day options that might pop up! πŸ‘€

    • Becky

      I need drive thru and app options… I love ellianos but ordering can be a real pain

  4. suzanne

    Dunkin – it’s not FREE if you have to make a purchase. And shame on the Bucks not being on this list.

    Kahwa is on Friday with the app – my personal favorite.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback Suzanne! πŸ™ŒGood to know what your favorite is! πŸ’ž I’ll be grabbing the Dunkin’ offer as that’s super close to my house and I’ll need a donut anyway. πŸ˜†πŸ© We’ll keep an eye out for any more coffee deals that might pop up!

  5. queen62

    I used to get the Cumberland Farms free but I don’t see them listed this year

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m not finding a deal listed for them as I search through now either. Hoping you might still be able to grab a yummy coffee deal from one of the options above. β˜•πŸ€žβ€οΈ

  6. Julie

    I can’t find the Tim Hortons’ quarter coffee deal.
    Is there only the deal for their rewards members?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Julie! This is the offer we’re seeing for them – “FREE Hot or Iced Coffee with their purchase of $3 or more.” We’ll keep watch if anything else pops up! πŸ‘€πŸ’–

  7. berry

    I love that Stewart’s made the list

  8. Di

    The amazon giveaway is not working for me.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Sorry for any issues, Di. I still find it to load up for me. Maybe try once more in a different browser. Hoping that does the trick! 🀞❀️

  9. Ashli

    FYI Pilot Flying Jnis hot coffee only. It does not include iced or frozen. I just found out the hard way and had to buy my iced coffee πŸ€ͺ

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! I wonder if that might vary. So sorry for that confusion. Thanks for the heads up, Ashli! ❀️

  10. cheree808217

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome! β˜•πŸ€—πŸ’ž Enjoy!

  11. Shannon Gilbert

    The original post says $100 Amazon gift card and the other on Instagram says a $10 Amazon gift card, which one is correct?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry for any confusion. The full amount given away is $100, as ten winners will each get a $10 Amazon gift card. πŸ™ŒπŸ’– Good luck!
