Everyday Deal: Save $10.99 when you buy a dozen Classic Assorted doughnuts.

When there isn't a promotional deal, the best value you'll get at Krispy Kreme is on the Classic Assorted dozen. The classic sprinkle doughnuts are regularly $2.29 each. Buy a dozen assorted for just $16.49 and save $10.99 or 40% compared to buying them individually. That's like getting four free Krispy Kreme doughnuts when you buy them by the dozen.

The Original Glazed are $1.99 apiece. Buy a dozen for $14.99 and save $8.89 or 37%. Better yet, we often see Krispy Kreme coupons to get a second dozen at a hefty discount when you buy a dozen.

1. Get your first free Krispy Kreme donut when you download their app.

When you download the Krispy Kreme app and become a Krispy Kreme Rewards member, you’ll get a free Original Glazed donut (regularly $1.99). Once you sign up, you’ll be able to find the coupon in the Offers section of the app. Keep in mind that the coupon has an expiration of about one month after signing up. Your expiration date will be listed in your Offers tab.

2. Earn 12 reward points for each $1 spent at Krispy Kreme.

Krispy Kreme revamped their rewards program in April 2024. Now, you will earn 12 points for every $1 you spend. You can redeem your points on a single doughnut, 3-pack, 6-pack, even a dozen doughnuts, coffee, and hot chocolate. Here's how many points you need to get freebies:

  • 150 - 250 points (spend $12.50 - $20.83)

    • Get an Original Glazed or Classic Doughnut or your choice of a Hot or Iced Brewed Coffee, or Hot Chocolate

  • 400 - 600 points (spend $33.33 - $50)

    • Get a 3-pack of Original Glazed or Classic Doughnuts or a Hot or Iced Specialty Latte

  • 800 - 1200 points (spend $66.67 - $100)

    • Get a 6-pack of Original Glazed or Classic Doughnuts

  • 1400 - 1700 points (spend $116.67 - $141.67)

    • Get a dozen Original Glazed or Classic Doughnuts

So, what do all these numbers mean when it comes to buying doughnuts? Here are a few examples of how you can earn the minimum and maximum points on the above list.

To earn the minimum 150 points you'll have to buy at least 7 or 3 (3-packs) Original Glazed doughnuts or 6 small Coffees. To earn the maximum 1700 points you'll need to buy 10 dozen Original Glazed doughnuts or 9 dozen Classic Doughnuts.

3. Get a Krispy Kreme free donut on your birthday just by being a rewards member.

Be sure to add your birthday to the Krispy Kreme app so that you can claim your free Krispy Kreme birthday donut on the offers page. This coupon will last for your entire birthday month, so be sure to claim it before the month is over.

4. Pretty much any time there’s a holiday or special occasion, look out for Krispy Kreme coupons.

Krispy Kreme celebrates major holidays by giving away free doughnuts, like the Krispy Kreme Halloween donuts promotion. Here’s a list of the best deals they’ve done in the past year:

  • Christmas: $1 for a dozen (regularly $14.99) on the week leading up to Christmas

  • Super Bowl Sunday: $13 for two dozen doughnuts (regularly $29.98)

  • National Doughnut Day (First Friday of June): Everyone got a free doughnut (regularly $1.99)

  • Fourth of July: BOGO deal on dozens

5. When the Krispy Kreme BOGO $1 deal happens, jump on it.

One of the best Krispy Kreme promotions ever is their BOGO $1 dozen. That’s right, buy one dozen at regular price, and the second dozen costs just $1.

Since one dozen of Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donuts costs $14.99, your price for two dozen comes out to only $15.99 — a 54% discount.

TIP: The Krispy Kreme discounts are random, so the best way to keep up with every Krispy Kreme deal, you should check out their Instagram or Twitter. Or you can keep up with our Krispy Kreme deals where we’ll give you every Krispy deal we can find.

6. Get the freshest doughnuts when the Krispy Kreme Hot Light is on.

The absolute best time to get an Original Glazed donut is when they’ve turned the Krispy Kreme Hot Light on. Workers turn that light on when the donuts have just come off the cooling rack and are at that gooey warm temperature.

And better yet, some locations will even give you a free donut if they have the Hot Light on. Doesn’t hurt to ask!

TIP: Leftover doughnuts last two to three days and up to six months if you freeze them. To refresh or reheat the doughnuts, a couple of minutes in an air fryer will give you the best results, but a microwave will work too.

7. Students get Krispy Kreme free donuts for every “A” on their report card.

Students, just show your report card to the cashier and earn up to six Krispy Kreme free donuts. Some Krispy Kremes have age restrictions and might not participate, so make sure to check your local Krispy Kreme by giving them a call.

There are so many ways that good grades turn into student freebies.

8. Get a free dozen donuts every week when you’re a Krispy Kreme employee.

Become a Krispy Kreme employee (or as they call themselves, Krispy Kremers). You’ll be eligible for many employee benefits such as dental, vision, health, 401(k), life insurance, PTO, and tuition assistance.

Plus, you’ll get a 50% discount on all food and beverages as well as a free dozen doughnuts per week. Let that sink in … 624 doughnuts a year. Free.

Tip: If you’re looking for more companies that pay for your college, we’ve got you covered.

9. Dunkin’ Donuts has lower prices — except on doughnut holes.

Who’s cheaper, Krispy Kreme vs Dunkin’ Donuts? Overall, Krispy Kreme is more expensive than Dunkin’. Single doughnuts cost between $1.99 and $2.59 at Krispy Kreme — up to 35% more expensive than Dunkin’s $1.69 Classic doughnuts.

The one item cheaper at Krispy Kreme than Dunkin’? Doughnut holes. Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ sell their doughnut holes for $0.28 and $0.36, respectively.

Note, if you buy a pack of 50 Dunkin' donut holes you can get the price per donut hole down to Krispy Kreme's $0.28, but you'll also have twice the donuts holes to eat.

10. Buy Krispy Kreme Bites at Walmart to save 22% on doughnut holes.

Walmart sells a few Krispy Kreme products, but the only one that’s worth getting is the Krispy Kreme Bites — which are basically Krispy Kreme doughnut holes.

The Bites at Walmart cost $4.14 for 20 ($0.21 each), while the doughnut holes at your local Krispy Kreme run $6.69 for 24 ($0.28 each). Buying the pre-packaged Bites at Walmart saves you 25%.

11. Don’t have a Krispy Kreme nearby? Walmart sells their doughnuts … for a tiny bit cheaper.

Have you seen the Krispy Kreme displays near the line of registers at Walmart? Now, they straight up don’t taste the same as the just-made doughnuts at Krispy Kreme, but you’ll get a slight discount — of $0.71 — on a dozen. The savings used to be $2.12 when you compared box per box, but with inflation, the savings are not the same.

You’re not going to be able to use most of these Krispy Kreme savings strategies on your doughnut purchase at Walmart, but we can help you save money at Walmart.

TIP: Check out the snack aisle for even more Krispy Kreme-themed snacks. In the past, Krispy Kreme has collaborated with Smartfood to make Krispy Kreme popcorn, and they’ve also collaborated with Jelly Belly to make donut-flavored jelly beans.

12. Place your first order on DoorDash to get Krispy Kreme delivered free.

Krispy Kreme delivers via DoorDash, Uber Eats, and the Krispy Kreme app. Only DoorDash will give you free delivery on your first order from Krispy Kreme, but you won’t be able to get points toward the reward system — yet.

Here’s what you can expect for delivery fees from each service:

  • DoorDash: $0.99 delivery fee

  • Uber Eats: $3.99 delivery fee

  • Krispy Kreme App: $3.99 delivery fee

Before you order anything from a third-party delivery service, you should check out our DoorDash tips and Uber Eats tips.

13. Get free Krispy Kreme gift cards from Swagbucks.

Swagbucks is an amazing program that gives you free gift cards just for answering surveys and watching videos — even Krispy Kreme gift cards.

Learn all about how to start getting freebies with Swagbucks.

14. Buy Krispy Kreme gift cards from Raise.com to save 23%.

When you buy Krispy Kreme gift cards from Raise.com, you’ll pay up to 23% less than the value of the card. I got a couple of $10 gift cards, but I only paid $15.36 each for them. Every little bit helps!

TIP: While you can’t add gift cards to the app, you can still get points toward freebies if you tell the cashier your phone number or email when you purchase your doughnuts.
