I can't imagine waking up in the morning without being able to look forward to a hot cup of caffeinated coffee. I probably wouldn't get out of bed if I thought the coffee wouldn't be waiting for me. That being said, I drink a lot of coffee…which also means I spend a lot on coffee.

Here are some great ways I've found to get free coffee—right away, and over time. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

1. Amora Coffee

Amora Coffee is to caffeine aficionados as wine clubs are to lovers of the grape. This unique coffee club roasts their coffee in small batches by hand, hand-packs it, and ships it to you. You can choose between mild, medium, dark, and robust. You can also choose your grind preference (ground, whole bean) and select between regular and decaffeinated.

Plus, Amora Coffee is offering free coffee to new subscribers, and other valuable freebies including a free silver coffee scoop and canister on your second order.

2. Caribou Coffee

When you join the new Caribou Coffee Perks program, you’ll earn a free medium beverage just for completing your profile!

This will also generate a Caribou card for you that accrues points with each purchase. You can get drink freebies, size upgrades, and other perks.

3. Dunkin' Donuts Coffee

Dunkin' Donuts also has a perks loyalty program. You get 200 points automatically when you join, which equals a free beverage (your coupon will come by mail along with your card).

From here, each time you accrue 200 points (5 points = $1 spent) you will earn a free beverage. And you will earn a freebie on your birthday. So basically, the more coffee you drink, the more free coffee you will drink!

4. Starbucks Coffee

My Starbucks Rewards is perhaps the crème de la crème of coffee rewards programs.

You will get a free drink or treat on your birthday, a coupon for 15% off any purchase you make in the Starbucks store on your birthday, and (as you work your way up the levels) free in-store refills, more free drinks and treats, and free promotional offers via email (if you opt in). Every time you use your Starbucks card to make a purchase or buy specially-marked packages of Starbucks products at the grocery store, you earn one star. 12 stars = freebie.

5. McDonald's

If you dread Mondays (like I do), McDonald's may be able to help you change that. At many McDonald's (and some Dunkin' Donuts) locations nationwide, you can get free coffee all day long every Monday throughout 2015.

6. 7-Eleven

7-Eleven's 7Rewards program is easy: buy six cups of any fountain-based drink (Slurpee, Big Gulp, coffee, soda, etc.) and get the 7th free! All you need to do is download the free iOS or Android app.

Also, if you prefer not to use the app, you can use the paper punch card instead.

7. IKEA

You are probably thinking—"IKEA for free COFFEE?" Yup! When you shop at IKEA and you are a member of IKEA Family, you get a free cup of hot coffee or tea at the in-store restaurant every time you visit.

8. Gevalia

My folks were members of the Gevalia coffee club for many years (back when you would get a free coffeemaker when you joined). Today, you can get a free box of coffee when you refer a friend to Gevalia. Also, your friend gets $6 off when they buy their first two boxes of Gevalia.

9. Blue Bottle Coffee
