Tomorrow, Friday, June 3, is National Doughnut Day – better known as “If You Can’t Get Free a Doughnut Today, You Need to Work on Your Free Doughnut Acquisition Game Day.”

So what’s the best way to score some of that sweet free fried dough? According to Moneythe source for all your free doughnut needs – the two biggest doughnut chains of course have you covered.

Krispy Kreme will be offering every customer one free doughnut, all day long, no purchase necessary. However, be warned, the deal excludes Connecticut. You know what you did Connecticut!


Meanwhile, Dunkin’ Donuts is being slightly stingier, “offering guests a free classic doughnut of their choice* (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage.” If you’re like me, I’m sure you’re wondering what that asterisk indicates. It’s to let you know the deal “excludes Fancies, Squares and Croissant Donuts.” Who knew National Doughnut Day could get buried in such bureaucracy?!

Obviously, plenty of other doughnut shops out there are offering up deals and freebies. And typically I’d be all, “Support your local doughnut shop, yada yada yada.” But hey, we’re talking about getting free donuts here, so take a freebie from the big boys and stick it to the man.
