How to Get Free (or Discounted) Coffee

There's nothing like the dopamine hit that comes with a great deal or a discount on something - or better yet, get it for free. It can make your whole day, really. I fondly remember one day last summer when I found $9 on the floor in the parking lot of my local ice cream shop and then paid for my ice cream with it. It made my double scoop of buttered pecans on a waffle cone so much better.

The good news? You don't have to pray that you'll come across crumbled cash in a parking lot to save money. You can get the same satisfaction by saving a few bucks on a cup of coffee (or latte, or matcha, or whatever your favorite drink is) at your local cafe.

Here are five ways to get discounted or free coffee. It was nothing!
