Wawa has been keeping the mid-Atlantic fueled with hot coffee for more than half a century. To celebrate 54 years in business, the beloved convenience store chain is now offering an irresistible deal on its signature hot beverage. As ABC Philadelphia reports, Wawa customers can pick up a free coffee of any size all day on April 12.

The promotion is part of the company's annual Wawa Day, which marks the launch of Wawa's first store in Folsom, Pennsylvania in 1964. This year, the company is also celebrating reaching its goal of raising $50 million for nonprofits in four years through The Wawa Foundation. “Wawa Day is a great day for us to all pause and thank the millions of customers we’ve served over the past 54 years," Wawa CEO Chris Gheysens said in a press statement.

To participate in this year's Wawa Day, just visit one of the more than 790 Wawa locations across Pennsylvania, Florida, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. and grab a brewed coffee. The chain expects to give away 2 million free cups of coffee as part of the promotion.

While the first official Wawa store opened 54 years ago, the company's history goes back more than two centuries. It started as an iron factory in 1803 before becoming a milk processing plant in the early 20th century. As the milk delivery business began to slow down, Grahame Wood, the grandson of Wawa founder George Wood, reinvented Wawa as a food market, laying the foundation for the business it is today.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.
