Starting your morning with a cup of coffee is great, and Wawa recognizes this by giving us multiple Wawa Free Coffee Days throughout the year. These select annual days will get you Wawa coffee absolutely free.

Some of the days when you can expect free coffee are on specific annual days including National Coffee Day, Wawa Day (April 13, 2023), and more. In this post, we’ll catalog every free annual coffee day at Wawa to give you an idea of when and how you can get your free perk in the future.

You’ll get free coffee from Wawa all day on Wawa Day, April 13.

Every year on Wawa Day, you’ll get a free cup of coffee from the convenience store when you visit their locations in person. Fill a cup of self-serve coffee up to 24 ounces (regularly $1.65). This deal is only available for one day, so make sure to rush and grab your java before you have to pay for it again.

This freebie is limited to one cup of coffee per person, and you won’t be able to substitute the coffee with any other beverage. Bonus: you don’t need to be a member of the Wawa Rewards program to get this deal.

Wawa Day changes its date every year, but we can typically expect it to be around April 16. Why? That’s the day the first Wawa opened their doors.
