Krispy Kreme offers a free doughnut to vaccinated customers (includes video story)

Krispy Kreme has found a way to be sweet by offering a free original glazed doughnut to those who choose to get vaccinated. This offer began on Monday, March 22 and will be available until December 31 at U.S. locations only. 

Qualified guests include anyone who has received at least one shot of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine — or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson variety. Guests must show their COVID-19 vaccination cards to receive the free pastry. A sticker showing that the guest has received the vaccine is not enough for this offer. 

Guests are not able to redeem on behalf of their families. However, each guest with a vaccination card — even if they are in the same car — can participate in the promotion. 

This offer is valid both inside the shop or at the drive-thru.

Isaac Bentata, a recent Krispy Kreme guest, is excited. “The process is really easy,” he said. “You just need to go in the line, show your ID which shows that you got the vaccine and they give you a free doughnut. I am very happy that Krispy Kreme is promoting people to get vaccinated.”
