All you need is a little loyalty.

If current global events and an already-tumultuous election year have you seeking comfort in your favorite foods, Dunkin' has a deal running all month long you'll want to know about. This March, the coffee chain is giving fans four opportunities to score a free doughnut. Here's how it works.

The first step is to join Dunkin's DD Perks Rewards loyalty program. The app and program, which is free to sign up for, allows customers to pay and order via the Dunkin' mobile app and tracks rewards points and earned free beverage vouchers as well as special offers. This month, one of those specials is a free doughnut with the purchase of any drink. So whether you're a year-round iced coffee fan or hot-beverage loyalist, the drink choice is up to you, as is the choice of any classic doughnut. (The only restriction on beverages is that espresso shots don't count toward the promotion.)

In order to redeem the free doughnut with purchase in-store, DD Perks Reward members need simply to scan their loyalty app ID at checkout (payment for the beverage can be made via mobile, card, or cash). If ordering via the app, the promotion will be automatically applied when a qualifying beverage and doughnut are purchased together. Free Donut Fridays begin this Friday, March 6, and ends on Friday, March 27.

And if you're wondering whether you can return multiple times on a Friday and grab another free doughnut with each of those orders, the answer is yes. A Dunkin' representative confirmed that as long as each order contains at least one qualifying drink, it also entitles you to a free doughnut. Or, if you're ordering a bunch of drinks in one order, each one qualifies for a free doughnut. Whether or not you're sharing any of those is up to you.
