Guide to National Donut Day 2019

My kids are already asking if they can go to school late tomorrow because they know what’s up. Free donut day 2018 kicks off bright and early!

Fun fact: National Donut Day started in 1938. It began as a way to thank the World War I Donut Lassies, the Salvation Army volunteers who gave a little taste of home to the troops by way of fresh donuts. So really, you should participate as it is the patriotic, as well as delicious, thing to do.

Free Donut Day

Want to score free donuts? Yup, me too. Because the only thing better than a hot, fresh donut is a hot, fresh FREE donut in my book. And June 1 is free donut day so let’s do this!

Where to get a Free Donut on National Donut Day 2019

  • Walmart– 1.2 million donuts will walk out the door with Walmart shoppers. Free glazed donut and available all across the US.
  • Krispy Kreme– everyone gets a free donut! Any donut, any location. So, yeah, stop number 1.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts– free donut with purchase of any beverage. You are probably cruising in for that Dunkies coffee anyway, so show up early and get a donut for free (before they run out!) 
  • Cumberland Farms– Stop in for a fountain drink, walk out with one free donut from 5 am to 10 am. DONE!
  • Shiply Do-Nuts– free glazed donut with any purchase.
  • Papa John’s– donut holes are new on the menu starting June 2. But you can try them for FREE on June 1. Friday nights are pizza nights around here- so we’ll be grabbing the free donut holes with our online purchase on National Donut Day. Thanks, Papa!
  • Edible Arrangements– sure, why not? They are giving away free donuts in their stores for National Donut Day 2018. Pick up one of the awesome chocolate dipped fruit baskets while you’re at it!
