National Donut Day Freebies 2019

2024 National Doughnut Day Freebies

Friday, June 7, 2024 is the next National Doughnut Day. Or National Donut Day, whichever way you swing. It dates back to 1938 and dates forward to delicious, scrumptious free doughnuts and donuts and coffee!

So dig out those extra stretchy pants and skimp on dessert for a few nights because we're about to get some free doughnuts and donuts! As always, you might want to confirm with your local store that they're participating in any promotions. I've listed all the confirmed 2024 offers I could find.

If you spot any I missed, please leave a comment with a link to the offer!

Krispy Kreme – Your pick of any “favorite” doughnut is free, minus limited time only doughtnuts. Their chocolate iced kreme filled have always been a favorite of mine since I was a wee little Goob. (locations)

Dunkin' – Free classic donut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage. (locations)

LaMar's – Their Twitter page says to spread the word to get free donuts on June 7 with no purchase necessary. (locations)

Duck Donuts – Receive a free cinnamon sugar donut with no purchase necessary. (locations)

Shipley Do-Nuts – One free signature glazed do-nut with any purchase from 5am – 12pm. If ordering online ahead, then use promo code DONUTDAY24. (locations)

Tim Hortons – It sure would be nice if Tim Hortons put a date on their website. That'd make my job a lot easier when it comes to confirming the validity of this offer! That said, I think this is for 2024. Just log into your Tim Rewards account, active the offer in your offer tray, then add a donut to your order and checkout for free. This offer is available all week long. (locations)

Randy's Donuts – One free classic donut of your choice, from 6am – 12pm. (locations)

Stan's Donuts – They'll give a free chocolate-dipped donut with every purchase. These look delicious! (locations)

Honey Dew Donuts – A day after I went to publication, they let me know that we get a free donut with a medium drink purchase this year. (locations)

Rise'n Roll – New to the list this year is Rise'n Roll! They're offering a free Cinnamon Caramel donut. (locations)

Unconfirmed Freebies

Cumberland Farms – For the third year in a row, many sites and even news stations are reporting you'll get a free doughnut if you buy any sized drink, but I can't find anything from CF confirming this. They've held similar promotions on past National Doughnut Days though, so I'd call ahead if you're interested in this.

If you have a link or press release from Cumberland Farms confirming this freebie, please share in the comments!

Kwik Trip – In 2022, they gave a coupon for a free Cake Donut, Dunker, or Glazer with your Kwik Rewards card. After logging in, go to “Coupons” and click “Add Offer” to save the coupon to your account. They didn't offer anything in 2023 and it doesn't appear as if they are offering anything in 2024 either.

Free Tropical Smoothie Cafe Flip Flop Day

Free Tropical Smoothie Cafe on May 29, 2024

My mom always said nothing goes together like smoothies and flip flops. Wait, she never said that. Nobody has. But that's never stopped Tropical Smoothie Cafe and their annual National Flip Flop Day free smoothie offer! Each year, they give away a free smoothie if you wear a pair of flip flops.

This year, that means you will get a free 12 oz. Island Punch Smoothie at your local store on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 from 2-7pm. Remember to wear your “finest” flip flops too! Don't show up in just any old flip flops. Break open the china cabinet and pull out that fancy pair you save for special occasions.

Don't forget about the Tropical Smoothie Cafe birthday freebie either!

Free Krispy Kreme Doughtnut

Free Krispy Kreme Doughnut on May 18

However, as an added bonus, all customers can get a free Original Glazed doughnut on Saturday, May 18 to celebrate Dolly Parton's signature doughnut debut.

Update: Hiffer Melissa points out that you have to get “All Dolly'd Up” to get this. That means dressing or singing like Dolly Parton. So clear those throats and prepare to belt out a few lines of “Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene.”

Mother's Day Freebies & Restaurant Deals

Mother’s Day Freebies & Restaurant Deals

Unless otherwise noted, all of the freebies below are available on Sunday. As always, be sure to confirm with your local store about their participating in the freebie promo.

To make it easier to scan, I've marked the three types of offers as follows:

  • These are pure freebies!
  • These are either BOGO deals on some sort of special on a various menu items or entrees.
  • These are gift card deals that give a nice bang for your buck. People & families have their own favorite restaurants, so these gift card deals make sense if you know you'll be eating at one of these restaurants in the near future.
Many restaurants require you to join their free rewards program. When doing so, be sure to enter your birthday so you'll get their free stuff on your birthday every single year! Hundreds of places offer great freebies during your birthday month!

Free Repurpose Compostable Goods

Free Repurpose Compostable Goods at Select Stores

If you have a nearby Ralphs, Fry's, or Kroger, then you can get some free Repurpose compostable tableware or household items, up to $8.99. All you have to do is sign up via Vizer and they'll email you a barcode to scan at checkout.

It took a few tries for the button to work for me. Be sure to click it until you see the message saying “Submission Successful! Your offer is on its way. Happy Shopping! 🎉”

I've been a huge composter for many years now. It was an eye-opening experience when I realized how much of my weekly trash was just food. Now that I compost, all that organic material stays out of the landfill and doesn't turn into pointless methane.

National Pretzel Day Freebie

Free Pretzels on National Pretzel Day, April 26, 2025

I think we all remember reading about pretzel's invention by Italian monks in 610 AD. Trust me, it was big news.

But did you know April 26 is National Pretzel Day? You didn't? LIAR! Of course you did, I just told you. Geez, pay attention.

As in years past, a variety of stores are giving out free pretzels on Saturday, April 26, 2024 with no purchase necessary!

Confirmed 2025 Free Pretzel Offers

None confirmed yet. These offers usually show up about one month prior to National Pretzel Day, so check back in early April to see what's free this year!

Previous Year's Offers

  • Auntie Anne's – Free Original or Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel available to Pretzel Perks members. This is their free rewards program that will also trigger their annual free birthday pretzel! If you don't already have an account, now is the perfect time to register so that your free pretzel offer is waiting for you in your Pretzel Perks account. When joining, use promo code RYANE7068 to earn a free bonus reward.
  • Ben's Soft Pretzels – Make a minimum donation of $1, while in-store, to their partnered charity and receive a free original jumbo pretzel.
  • Philly Pretzel Factory – They're giving in-store customers a free pretzel, valued up to $1, with no purchase necessary. This was available from 7am-7pm on previous years and I expect that to be the same this year.
  • Pretzelmaker – When I asked if they're doing anything in 2024, Pretzelmaker told me “Could be 👀🥨❤️” which is Corporate Speak for “yes, but we haven't announced what the freebie is yet.” In previous years, they offered a free salted or unsalted pretzel.
  • Wetzel's Pretzels – Free Original Pretzel to all guests after 3pm.

Any Hiffers remember how Prezelmaker used to make people tell a joke in order to get this freebie? Glad to see they backed off my turf 🙂 Good times.

  • Sheetz – Open the app and look under “Offers” to find a deal for a free soft pretzel with any soft drink or coffee purchase.

Like usual, if you know of any I missed, please share in the comments.

Free SuperPet Smart ID Tag

Free SuperPet Smart ID Tag from Purina

Each household can receive a free SuperPet Smart ID tag from Purina and Dynotag. After filling out the form, you'll get a tag in the mail with instructions on how to activate it. Each tag has a QR code on it that links to a profile you can update with name, contact info, medical alerts, and any other important information you might want to share. Then if your pet ever goes missing, a good Samaritan can scan the QR code with their phone, instantly pull up your contact info, and hopefully reunite you!

There's a similar free pet ID offer still available that we covered last year when you can a similar freebie both for your cat and dog.
