Free Coffee! Or Spend $85 On a Starbucks T-Shirt

Today is National Coffee Day and some companies are using the holiday to give away free coffee, which is great.

You have until 11a.m. to get your free cup at 7-11 and Krispy Kreme* will get you caffeinated for free all day, and rumor has it that McDonald’s is offering free joe.

It doesn’t look like Starbucks is giving anything away, but you can give them (or Nordstrom’s) $85 for a fancy Alexander Wang t-shirt with a coffee-stain stencil of the Starbucks mermaid. The tee (at left) has nothing to do with coffee day. Rather it’s for Starbucks’ 40th anniversary and there are three others at the same price, all created by CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award winners. Wethinks we like free coffee better.

*Correction after the jump.

Dunkin’ Donuts actually didn’t offer free coffee for National Coffee Day, but rather launched a contest called “Chance for StarDDom,” which you can learn more about here.
