Free Krispy Kremes on Sunday! Lose an Hour of Sleep, Get a Free Donut

Ahead of National Donut Day, Krispy Kreme is offering one free glazed donut per customer on Sunday as part of its daylight savings promotion, which should soften the blow for those who lost an hour of sleep this weekend

All in all, that seems like a pretty fair tradeoff.

Those of us who just can’t wait for the arrival of National Donut Day—a free donut frenzy celebrated annually on the first Friday of June—are in luck.

Following on the heels of last week’s free pancake day at IHOP comes a daylight savings promotion from Krispy Kreme in which every customer is entitled to one free original glazed donut at participating locations on Sunday, March 9.

The giveaway is timed with the onset of daylight savings time, when clocks will “spring forward” by an hour on Sunday. The result is that the sun will set later in the day, though at the cost of everyone losing an hour of sleep this weekend. The prospect of a free donut should soften the blow.
