Friday, June 1st, is National Doughnut Day. Normally, I would just mention this freebie in my regular Freebie Friday post. However, since there are a handful of doughnut shops nationwide participating in this freebie giveaway, I’m writing this post as its own Suddenly Frugal’s Freebie Friday post.
I hope you’ll be able to take advantage of at least one of these giveaways today.
- Participating Dunkin Donuts shops, which will give you a free donut with a beverage purchase. This is at participating locations only, so check this list of local shops to find out if a Dunkin Donuts near you will offer this freebie on June 1st.
- I know that many Krispy Kreme locations nationwide are-giving patrons a free doughtnut on National Doughnut Day. The good news is that unlike other companies, the Krispy Kreme freebie is no purchase necessary–just show up and ask for your free doughnut, politely, of course.
- Tim Hortons is offering Facebook users who like the restaurant on Facebook a coupon for a free doughnut with purchase at participating shops on June 1st only.
- Participating Shipley Do-Nuts shops are serving free doughnuts from 5 a.m. until 12 noon on June 1. Most of the participating Shipley’s locations are in Houston, Texas, though you may want to check with your local store in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee.
