It’s the most wonderful time of the year- National Doughnut Day!

To celebrate, chains across the nation have special doughnut deals you won’t want to miss.

Here are a few you may want to check out:

Krispy Kreme 

The classic doughnut shop will celebrate by giving a free doughnut to each customer, no purchase necessary.  This is a generous promotion, but they know you can’t eat just one- especially if the light is on.

Dunkin’ Donuts 

When you pick up your coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, you can get a free doughnut because doughnuts are free with the purchase of any beverage.  Breakfast is covered.

Duck Donuts

At participating locations, you can walk in and grab a free classic doughnut- no purchase necessary.  PLUS, each customer will also receive a buy one, get one free doughnut coupon (to be used before June 17, 2018).

LaMar’s Donuts

They are giving away a free doughnut, but you have to print their golden ticket.  You can get one here.

Tim Hortons

This coffee/doughnut shop is celebrating in style.  In their “Gold Timbits” Promotion, you can win free doughnuts for a year.  All you have to do is walk in after 6AM, be the first person to ask for “Gold Timbits” or “24-carat Gold Timbits” or something similar.  You will receive Golden Timbits- they are honey-dipped and covered in 24k gold that is edible.  You will also win the prize.  Alas, this is only available in three stores, so be early (see official rules here)!

Burger King 

Yes, Burger King.  In 5 locations (Boston, Miami Beach, Los Angeles, New York City, and Salt Lake City), you can get a WHOPPER DOUGHNUT!  It’s essentially a Whopper with a hole in the middle, but wouldn’t this make for a fun Instagram picture.  I have to see this one.  Make sure you tag us @frugalfamilyfood if you get one of these!

Papa Johns

Papa knows what’s good, and he is introducing their new doughnut holes by giving them away with your online pizza order.  Then, starting June 2, you use the promo code DONUT for a free order with any purchase of two pizzas.  PLUS, if you order the doughnut holes online or through their app between Saturday, June 2 and June 30, you’ll be able to enter the “Dreaming of Doughnuts Island Getaway” Sweepstakes. Papa John’s will award one customer a trip for two to New Zealand, including Donut Island.  www.papajohns.com/dreamdonuts  after Saturday.


The giant is giving away full-sized glazed doughnuts from their bakery while supplies last.  So, while you are doing all your regular shopping, you can grab a treat.

There are lots of other deals at restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and other places you wouldn’t even consider.  So, before you go anywhere on National Doughnut Day, check out each business’ social media account.  You might be able to get a special bargain that you didn’t even know was there.  And if you find one, be sure to share it in the Frugal Family Food Community Facebook group, so we can all take advantage of the deals!
