FAQ for participating businesses

How does Buck-A-Cup work?

Between April 5-19, participating restaurants sell $1 pins or $1 pins and $10 GOLD pins. Customers who come in on Coffee Day, April 19, with a $1 pin are entitled to one free cup of coffee (or other participating beverage). If you also sell $10 GOLD pins, then customers who come in between April 5-19 with a GOLD pin are entitled to one free cup per day.

  • $1 Pin : One Free Coffee (or beverage(s) of restaurants choice) on April 19.
  • $10 GOLD Pin : One Free Coffee (or beverage(s) of restaurants choice) per day between April 5-19.

Does it have to be coffee?

Traditionally, Buck-A-Cup refers to a cup of coffee. However, not everyone drinks coffee. Restaurants are welcome to include other select beverages in the campaign. Let us know what other beverages are included in your offer and we will make a note of it on our website.

Can I get my suppliers involved?

Absolutely! Over the years, some restaurant suppliers have supported Buck-A-Cup by offering discounts to participating restaurants. Talk to your supplier to see if they are willing to support you during the campaign. Let us know if they are interested in being an overall sponsor or providing this support to other restaurants!

Can my business do more than just sell pins for for coffee?

Yes! All restaurants and cafes are asked to sell and accept $1 pins on Coffee Day, April 19. However, businesses are welcome to provide other promotions and benefits to customers with or without pins and GOLD pins. Examples of promotions that restaurants have held in past years include: car washes, percentage of sales donation, and quilt auctions. Let us know about your promotion, and we will include it on our website and in our marketing.
