National Doughnut Day 2020 Deals and Freebies from Dunkin', Krispy Kreme, Winchell's and More

Today (June 5, 2020) is National Doughnut Day—24 hours of love dedicated to the sugary treat.

Originally started in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I, National Doughnut Day has certainly become a favorite for Americans. Well, who doesn't like free doughnuts?

Whether you're planning to have some doughy goodness for breakfast, lunch or dinner, check out this Newsweek guide to getting free doughnuts, discounts and competitions.

Dunkin' Donuts

The coffee and doughnut chain is offering a free donut with any beverage purchase on June 5, 2020. But the fun doesn't stop there—with GrubHub orders of $10 or more on June 6 to 7, 2020, customers can get a free half-dozen donuts.

For this year's Donut Party donut, Dunkin' is giving fans the chance to create their own Donut Party slogans, by answering the question "What does The Donut Party stand for to you?" The prize is free donuts for a year.

The competition finishes June 5, 2020—anyone who shares their original Donut Party slogan on Instagram with #DunkinDonutPartySweepstakes will be entered for a chance to win one of six prizes.

According to the coffee house, the vast majority of Dunkin' restaurants across the country remain open and have put enhanced preventative health and safety measures in place. In an ongoing effort to help keep its guests and restaurant employees safe, Dunkin' is currently limiting service to drive-thru, carry-out, delivery, and curbside pick-up at select locations. Guests can order and pay contactless on the Dunkin' App for a quick, grab-and-go experience or through Grubhub with contact-free delivery.
