Everyone’s favorite holiday has finally arrived! No, I’m not talking about Christmas or Halloween - I’m talking about National Donut Day! You can help us celebrate this holiday by swinging by your favorite cafe and grabbing a free sugary treat. Not sure where to grab that mid-morning snack? Don't worry, we've done the research and found out all the cafes, coffee shops, and retailers that are handing out freebies and deals this friday! Below you'll find a comprehensive list of all the cafes that are taking part in addition to their discounts:


Arguable one of the most popular donut shops in America, DUNKIN DONUTS is offering a free classic donut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage. This sweet offer lasts all day Friday, but you can keep the discounts going with this 30% off promo code.

Krispy Kreme

Famous for their delicious glazed donuts, Krispy Kreme is giving away all of your favorite flavors for FREE - no purchase necessary!

In The Swim

Ok, so this isn't a coffee shop but the offer was too adorable to ignore! In The Swim is celebrating National Donut Day with a 50% off BOGO deal on all of their iconic Donut Floats. You can grab your own pool float at an amazing discount, just in time for all those summer pool parties!

Donut Pool Float


Pop into your local Harveys this Friday and you'll receive a 50% discount on every single donut in their bakery! You'll have to hurry though, because the offer only stands while supplies last.

Edible Arrangements

Another surprising name on this list is Edible Arrangements, which recently launched their new Edible Donuts. This healthy treat is made from granny smith apples, chocolate, and a selection of yummy toppings. This Friday, you can order a free donut or use this coupon code to get an extra $10 off your entire order.

Burger King

You might be surprised to see this popular fast food joint on the list, but hear me out. To honor this National holiday, select locations have created the first "flamed-grilled donut." While this is really just a Whopper with a hole in the middle, we still think Homer Simpson would be proud. The Whopper Donut is only available Friday and comes with a free mini slider.

Delicious Donuts

The Dough Bar

You might recognize this company from their appearance on Shark Tank, or for their infamous protein donuts. But they’re making headlines again this weekend by offering 10% off all orders, one free donut and one free crispy bar. If that wasn’t tempting enough, they’re also offering 11 new limited flavors that will be available all week - you just have to grab one before they run out!

Papa John's

If you don't feel like venturing outside, you can still score a free serving of donut holes when you order online from Papa John's this Friday! After the holiday is over, you can still fulfill your pizza cravings with this promo code that will get you 5 free pizza toppings.


You can expect to get one free glazed donut at ALL Walmart stores this Friday, but be prepared to wait in line. If that deal isn't good enough for you, you can also use this coupon code to receive free 2-day shipping on orders over $35.

Shipley Do-Nuts

This Texas chain is playfully referring to the holiday as "National Do-Nut Day" and is offering free glazed do-nuts this Friday from 5 am until noon, so you'll have to hurry!
