If you’re feeling lucky this St. Patrick’s Day, you might want to head to Krispy Kreme, where they’re giving away golden tickets for a year’s worth of free doughnuts!

From March 15-17, just visit a participating Krispy Kreme location and make a purchase of any amount. Winners will be randomly selected, and the receipt from your purchase will let you know if you’re a potential prize winner. You can also enter without making a purchase by following their instructions for a mail-in entry.

The free doughnuts come in the form of one dozen original glazed doughnuts per month until St. Patrick’s Day 2020. At least one prize will be given away at each participating store all three days. Winners for the mail-in entry will be chosen later in the month. There will be as many prizes for the mail-in entries as there are for those who enter in-store.

Not all Krispy Kreme locations are participating, so be sure to check the list before heading to your nearest store. Each prize is valued at $113, with Krispy Kreme giving out a total of $400,000 worth of doughnuts.

While you’ll be entered to win for any purchase, you might as well treat yourself to their Green O’riginal Glazed doughnuts, back just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

To read the full terms and rules, just head to Krispy Kreme’s website. Will you be making a trip to Krispy Kreme or mailing in an entry for a chance to win free doughnuts for a year?
