Happy National Donut Day 2019!
National Donut Day is always held on the first Friday of June, and it always features lots and lots of delicious free donuts. The tradition kicked off during the World War II era when the Salvation Army created National Donut Day as a way to support men and women serving their country — by giving them free donuts.
For National Doughnut Day 2019 (Friday, June 7, this year), big donut chains like Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are indeed hosting free donut deals. Even some convenience stores (Cumberland Farms) and Walmart stores have free donuts today.
Before getting into the specifics for all the donut freebies on Friday, is the correct spelling “donut” or “doughnut”? Actually, both spellings are acceptable, and different donut chains use their own preferred spelling in logos and branding. So we use “donut” and “doughnut” interchangeably. And really, what matters way more than spelling is that all of the donuts (or doughnuts) are free today.
Here are all the best National Donut Day 2019 freebies and deals:
Dunkin’ has free donuts all day long on National Donut Day 2019. To take advantage of the free donut deal at Dunkin’, head to any participating store on Friday, June 7, and purchase any beverage. Then you can select any flavor donut, free of charge.
