We’re nearly halfway through 2021, and it’s honestly kind of surprising that we made it this far. As such, it might not be a bad idea to treat yourself, and Friday, June 4th just so happens to be National Donut Day. It might sound like a joke, but we have actually been writing about it for a few years now, and we have definitely snagged a few free donuts along the way.

There’s a chance you’ve already had your fill of donuts for the year, since Krispy Kreme has been giving them away for free to everyone who gets a COVID vaccine, but there’s never a bad time to get a free donut, so read on for all of the deals we found online.

Keep in mind that participation can vary by store and location, so be sure to check in before you make the drive. With that said, here are the best deals available on National Donut Day 2021:

  • DiGiorno: The famed frozen pizza company is celebrating National Donut Day with a limited-time promotion that will reward 10 winners with a box of six “DiGiornuts,” which are precisely what they sound like. DiGiorno describes the concoction as “a delicious donut, stuffed with mozzarella cheese, topped with signature DiGiorno sauce, even more cheese and decked out with your favorite pizza toppings.” Reply to this tweet on DiGiorno’s profile with #Sweepstakes to enter.
