How to get free coffee for daylight saving time because you’re going to need it

As we prepare to spring forward, two national chains are offering free coffee deals to help you kick the daylight-saving-time blues.

If you're dreading losing an hour of sleep when daylight saving time rolls around this weekend, odds are you've already planned to load up on caffeine to cope. To ease the pain, two popular restaurant chains are giving away free coffee to help customers adjust to the new time.

For starters, Dunkin' and GrubHub are teaming up to give away free caffeinated drinks for a whole week. The deal is good for one complimentary hot or cold beverage (up to a $5 value) each day from March 12 to 18, and all you have to do is place an order on Grubhub for $15 to cash in on the offer.
