Here’s how to score a free doughnut from Krispy Kreme

The brand is giving away 100,000 free doughnuts.

In celebration of on National Doughnut Day on 2 June, Krispy Kreme is giving away 100,000 Original Glaze doughnuts to Aussies across the country.

All a customer has to do is visit any Krispy Kreme store on 2 June..and that’s it!  Customers can visit any participating Krispy Kreme store across NSW, VIC, QLD, WA and SA on the day to claim their free doughnut.

To help customers celebrate National Doughnut Day, Krispy Kreme has four tips on how to get their free doughnuts:

  1. Spot the Hot Light from 5-8 pm
    Sure the Original Glazed is hands down the best doughnut in the world BUT there’s something else that truly gets fans going... the Hot Light. Whenever Krispy Kreme’s Hot Light is on, it means the fluffy doughnuts are rolling down the production line, glistening through the glaze waterfall, and going straight into your box fresh and warm. All Krispy Kreme doughnuts are made and delivered fresh daily, but life is not complete if you haven’t tried a warm doughnut straight off the production line. It tastes like a delicious warm cloud, light in texture, and melts in your mouth. Did you know more than half (55.2%) of Aussies have never eaten a Krispy Kreme doughnut while it’s still hot!? So go on... spot the Hot Light this National Doughnut Day at your nearest Krispy Kreme Hot Light store, and thank us later
  2. Doughn’t visit during peak hour
    According to last year’s National Doughnut Day, between 4 - 5 pm close to 8,000 Aussies rushed to their local Krispy Kreme stores to claim a free OG. This year, Krispy Kreme recommends fans to visit during quieter times between 6 - 11 am. After all, it’s never too early or too late to enjoy a doughnut. If you’re having Original GlazedR doughnuts for morning tea, we recommend you grab a coffee whilst you’re there!
  3. Plan your travel ahead of time
    It’s serious business claiming your free OG. For Sydneysiders, the busiest store from last year was Liverpool, followed by Chatswood, and Parramatta Fresh. If you want to avoid long queues, plan ahead and map out your travel route for the day, or simply visit another nearby store. 
  4. Share your joy
    Grab your friends, family, and roommates and make a day out of it... because who doesn’t love doughnuts? OR be that cool person who rocks up to work with a box of a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts... it’s a Friday and National Doughnut Day, there is no better excuse to spread joy!

“National Doughnut Day is our most popular event of the year. Our much loved Original GlazedR Doughnuts are made fresh daily and all our retail staff are rolling up their sleeves in preparation for a busy day ahead. We love to share joy with our fans and thank them for their support. Nothing says National Doughnut Day like a Free Krispy Kreme Original Glazed. Please do drop by and celebrate with us and your close family and friends,” Aimee Cutajar, Head of Marketing at Krispy Kreme ANZ said.

Customers can also score a free Original Glazed until 10 July if they spot the Hot Light being lit up across participating stores.
