National Doughnut Day is June 4, and Krispy Kreme is celebrating by giving away a free doughnut to everyone, with a chance for customers to get two free doughnuts!

All guests can enjoy any doughnut of their choice for free, no purchase necessary, simply by heading to Krispy Kreme on June 4. But if you’re vaccinated against COVID-19, you can get two doughnuts, as the doughnut shop is continuing to hand out free original glazed doughnuts to anyone who shows a valid COVID-19 vaccination card.

That means that if you head to your local Krispy Kreme on June 4 and bring your vaccination card, you will get a free glazed doughnut, plus any other doughnut of your choice — no purchase necessary!

If you’ll be heading to the office after stopping by for your free doughnut — or just want more doughnuts to take home — you can also get an original glazed dozen box for just $1 with any dozen purchase.

There is a limit of four $1 dozen boxes, and the offer is in-store only, not online. While the $1 dozen is only glazed doughnuts, the other dozen can be any kind you wish, like the Reese’s classic doughnut, which is filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme, dipped in Hershey’s chocolate icing, then topped with mini peanut butter chips, a drizzle of chocolate and Reese’s peanut butter sauce.

Dunkin’ will also be handing out free doughnuts on June 4 for National Doughnut Day, but you will need to purchase a beverage to get a free doughnut of your choice. If grabbing a coffee and doughnut is your go-to treat, then you’ll be getting the doughnut for free on Friday!

The deal is only while supplies last at participating locations.

Dunkin’s National Doughnut Day deal includes their newest menu items, pink-hued Berry Powdered Donuts, and three new Dunkin’ Lemonade Refreshers. Tossed in a pink-colored berry powder, the doughnuts are available as ring-shaped or Munchkins donut hole treats. The new lemonades come in strawberry, peach and blueberry flavors and are made with lemonade, fruit concentrate and B vitamins.
