One-Dollar Coffee Wednesdays at 7-Eleven
Java junkies rejoice. For those unwilling to fork out more than a buck for caffeine, 7-Eleven is selling coffee for only $1. The promotion is only on Wednesdays and lasts until the end of January.
That means any size cup and all the sugar, flavorings, topping and cream you can possibly want are included in that price. The promotion was put in place to celebrate the convenience store's new Brazilian Dark Roast, a premium blend coffee made from 100 percent Arabica beans from southwestern Brazil.
Other blends (also $1) include butter toffee, blueberry and 100% Colombian. 7-Eleven was actually the first U.S. retailer to offer fresh-brewed coffee in to-go cups back in the mid-1960s. Today, 7-Eleven sells more than 1 million cups of freshly brewed per day.
