One of the country's greatest holidays is National Donut Day, and there's no better place to celebrate than at Krispy Kreme. Every year, on June 3, the donut chain hands out their classic Original Glazed for anybody who comes into one of their stores. If you missed out on this momentous annual occasion, no worries. Because now Krispy Kreme is extending the free donut festivities all summer long for their "Sweet New Deal."

From now until Labor Day, you can snag free donuts at any Krispy Kreme location when the famous Hot Light is on. The neon sign announces whenever fresh donuts are rolling through the conveyor belt to get a sugary glaze coating. This summer, that Hot Light serves as a Bat Signal for anybody who wants to get a free Original Glazed donut—no purchase necessary.

You can scope out which locations have their Hot Light turned on by checking the Krispy Kreme website or mobile app for alerts.

If one donut isn't enough, you can stop by Krispy Kreme locations every Wednesday until the end of August for their Beat the Pump promotion. For this deal, the price of an Original Glazed dozen is lowered to match the national average cost of a gallon of regular gasoline from the previous Monday (which, today, would be $4.87).

"We love our tradition of giving fans any doughnut they want on National Doughnut Day," says Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme. "But with inflation on gas prices and everything else showing no signs of easing, we hope to brighten everyone’s day, every day, this summer with our Sweet New Deal."
