While festive cookies get all the attention during the holiday season, don’t let it distract you from the other essential round-shaped treat: doughnuts. And one of the biggest doughnut food holidays of the year is happening at Krispy Kreme on 12/12: Day of the Dozens.

Because of all the twelves in the date, Krispy Kreme is doing what they pretty much always do — practically give away doughnuts. If you’re wanting to get your own doughy wreaths of sugary goodness this holiday season, your time has come.

We’ll tell you how you can get the Day of the Dozens deal — plus point you toward more opportunities to get free Krispy Kreme all year long.

Buy any dozen doughnuts, get another for $1 today — Krispy Kreme Day of the Dozens (12/12).

Krispy Kreme doughnuts holiday menu dozen boxes

When you head to Krispy Kreme on Dec. 12, anyone can get an offer for BOGO $1 dozens — no Krispy Kreme Rewards account necessary. This includes their seasonal Santa’s Bake Shop dozens (normally costing $18.99) and their Original Glazed dozens (priced at $14.49) and everything in between. Just walk into your local Krispy Kreme and ask for the Day of the Dozens Krispy Kreme deal.

Unfortunately, if you were looking to order your doughnuts online through the Krispy Kreme app or website, you won’t get this deal added to your order. You’ll need to be in store to get your BOGO $1 dozens; the deal doesn’t work for Krispy Kreme app or website orders.
