If you are a lover of the round pastry, you may already know that National Donut Day is an opportunity to get a free donut or at least a good deal. So, if you catch yourself passing by a Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kreme or any other location selling donuts, you’ll want to watch out for these deals:
Krispy Kreme: Krispy Kreme is giving away a free donut (any variety). You cannot get your free donut at the drive thru though. You will have to walk into the store.
Dunkin Donuts: Dunkin Donuts is requiring a purchase of a beverage to get a free donut. Who wouldn’t want a hot cup of coffee from DD with their donut?
Fractured Prune: Select Fractured Prune locations will be offering free donuts with the purchase of a drink as well.
Duck Donuts: Duck Donuts, located on the East Coast, is offering a free sugar donut for National Donut Day. You will have to go to Duck Donuts Facebook page and claim the offer to receive a coupon to your email address. Then you show the coupon to the store and can claim your free pastry.
Randy’s Donuts: Randy’s Donuts, located in California, will be offering free donuts from 6 a.m. until 12 p.m. Patrons will also be entered in a raffle today.
Voodoo Doughnut: Voodoo Doughnut created some pretty awesome donuts. Some of them are topped with Cap’n Crunch cereal, others are topped with Bacon. However, the company will not be offering any freebies for National Donut Day. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a great place to stop to celebrate the day.
Entenmann’s: Usually you will only find these donuts in grocery stores. While many stores won’t be giving them away, the company is holding a sweepstakes in which 10 winners will receive free donuts for a year. The company will also be giving out free donuts in select cities throughout the United States.
Glaze Donuts: Glaze Donuts in New Jersey is offering one free glazed donut for each customer. The company has also joined with Uber for the day to have donuts delivered to your doorstep for $20. Proceeds of the Uber-Glaze partnership for the day will go to the Community Foodbank of New Jersey.
Shipley Do-Nuts: Located in the South and Midwest, patrons of Shipley Do-Nuts will be able to get a free glazed donut from 5 a.m. until 12 p.m. Shipley Do-Nuts will donate a portion of the sales to the Salvation Army.

Lamar’s Donuts: Print a “golden ticket” and get a free glazed donut from Lamar’s. Like Shipley Do-Nuts, Lamar’s will also be raising money for the Salvation Army. Donations are being accepted at all locations.
