FREEBIE ALERT: Free Donuts on National Doughnut Day

Today only, June 3, 2011

It is the 3rd of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta da-a-a-a-a-y. Well, this date always makes me think about that old Bobby Gentry song, “Ode to Billy Joe,” which starts out with those words. That probably ages me a bit, but so what? It’s a good song…if you haven’t heard it, you should check it out.

But here’s a real reason to celebrate June 3: It’s National Donut Day—and you can take advantage by enjoying a free donut! Both Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Dunkin’ Donuts have free donut deals.

Did you ever notice that Krispy Kreme spells it doughnut, while Dunkin’ uses the less formal donut?

Anyway, at Krispy Kreme, each guest who visits a participating location on National Doughnut Day (June 3, 2011) will receive one FREE doughnut of any variety. There’s no purchase is necessary to redeem the offer. The free doughnut offer is good for one doughnut per customer at participating U.S. and Canadian Krispy Kreme retail shops. You can visit the chain’s store locator page at KrispyKreme.com to find a participating Krispy Kreme location in your area.

At Dunkin’ Donuts, all day on June 3 you can get a free donut with any beverage purchase (except for cooler beverages) while supplies last. You can find a location near you by visiting the Dunkin’ Donuts website.

Happy Donut (or doughnut) Day!
