National Donut Day 2012: Where to Get Free Donuts
National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Donut Day event created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.
If you didn't already know that today is National Donut Day, now you do. Mark it on your calendars - it is celebrated the first Friday of June each year, and if it's not morning for you anymore, it's okay. A common misconception about donuts is that they are a breakfast menu item. However, donuts are a tasty anytime treat.
Krispy Kreme, which created a National Doughnut Day event page on Facebook, says people can stop into a store and get one free doughnut of any kind, no purchase necessary.
LaMar’s Donuts, a chain with a decent-sized presence in Colorado and the Midwest, is also offering one freebie per customer, no strings attached.
The Dunkin’ Donuts deal is still pretty sweet, but it’s not totally free: Buy any beverage — including the prepackaged ones in the fridge — and they’ll throw in a complimentary doughnut, while supplies last.
Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Horton’s is offering a coupon on its Facebook page for a free doughnut with any purchase at its U.S. locations. Customers have to “like” the brand, print the coupon and bring it into a store to claim their treat.
