It’s National Donut Day! Here’s How to Get Free Donuts

It’s National Donut Day! Here’s How to Get Free Donuts

A bunch of donut places are giving out FREE DONUTS for National Donut Day today.  You can get a free donut at participating Krispy Kreme locations.  You don’t even have to buy anything.  (Find the closest participating location here.)

You can also get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts if you buy a drink.  (Check out a few more donut deals here.)

It’s not just a made-up holiday to sell donuts though.  The Salvation Army started it in 1938 to honor a group of women who handed out donuts to soldiers in World War One to boost morale.  So it goes back about 80 years.  Now you know.

It’s National Coffee Day! Here’s How to Get Free Coffee

It’s National Coffee Day! Here’s How to Get Free Coffee

National Coffee Day

A bunch of coffee chains are giving out free coffee for National Coffee Day today, but Starbucks is NOT one of them. Instead, they’re launching a yearlong program where they’ll plant a tree for every bag of coffee they sell at their stores.

Which is nice . . . but doesn’t help you get free coffee. So here are a couple chains that ARE giving away coffee . . .

You can get a free small coffee and a glazed donut at Krispy Kreme if you mention the promotion . . . participating Dunkin’ Donuts will give you a free medium or iced coffee if you ask for it . . .

Whole Foods stores are selling 12-ounce cups of coffee for 25 cents . . . Staples is running a promotion where you can win a Keurig and a bunch of other stuff if you tweet a photo of your favorite coffee mug with the hashtag OfficeMugShot . . .

And McDonald’s is mostly ignoring National Coffee Day this year. A few locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts are giving out small cups, but it’s not clear if they’re doing it anywhere else.

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin’ Donuts Employee

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin’ Donuts Employee

Ironman Athlete Saved by a Dunkin' Donuts Employee

This is some glazed, powdered, Boston cream-filled irony right here.

52-year-old Don Pemberton of Mesa, Arizona is an Ironman athlete . . . which means he does triathlons that include a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile marathon at the end. Most of us couldn’t even do ONE of those.

He was out training earlier this month, and was about 30 miles into a 90-mile bike ride when he went into CARDIAC ARREST. Yes, even though he’s in insanely good shape, it turns out one of his arteries was 85% blocked.

He managed to stumble toward the nearest building, where he fell and blacked out. And it happened to be a DUNKIN’ DONUTS. Even better, one of the employees happened to have CPR training.

Her name is Hannah Bentley, and she did chest compressions until paramedics showed up and took him to the hospital. Without Hannah, he would’ve died.

As far as we can tell, he hasn’t acknowledged the irony that his super-healthy body was saved by a donut shop. But he HAS thanked Hannah for saving his life. He’s also raising money to send her on a cruise, at GoFundMe.com/CruiseForHannah.
