Love’s, Pilot, others celebrate National Coffee Day Sept. 29

Updated Sep 27, 2020

Long-ballyhooed changes to the federal hours of service rules that restrict a trucker’s driving days arrive on Tuesday, Sept. 29, so it might be fitting to toast the historic change with a nice, steaming cup of coffee. After all, Tuesday is also National Coffee Day and at least two major truck stop chains and numerous other businesses have specials to make the celebration less expensive or free.

CoffeeLove’s Travel Stops is celebrating National Coffee Day by offering customers any sized coffee or other hot beverage for the reduced price of $1 on Tuesday. When purchases are made through the Love’s Connect app, all proceeds go to Love’s annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign. My Love Rewards members can use a free drink refill credit for the purchase and Love’s will donate $1 on their behalf.

Customers can reply to Love’s social media posts on National Coffee Day with a photo of their Love’s coffee, and Love’s will donate an additional dollar to CMN Hospitals. Love’s annual CMN Hospitals campaign ends Oct. 3. Customers can further support CMN Hospitals by Rounding Up the Change or donating any amount at the register.

Pilot Flying J is offering customers a free cup of coffee Tuesday.

Guests who download or open the Pilot Flying J app on Tuesday will find an exclusive offer to redeem one free hot or iced Pilot coffee.
