My kids love it when I bring home doughnuts! The problem is, doughnuts aren’t always the most inexpensive breakfast item, nor the healthiest. Since my kids love Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, so I’ve learned how to save money at Krispy Kreme.

11 Ways to Save Money at Krispy Kreme: 

1. Ask for a free doughnut hole. 

Did you know you can get a FREE doughnut hole at Krispy Kreme? You can! Krispy Kreme gives them out as a free sample. My kids love getting a sweet little treat at the doughnut shop.

2. Download the Krispy Kreme App.

3. Use the bar code on the Krispy Kreme App. 

When you download and set up an account in the Krispy Kreme App, you will have your own barcode. Use it every time you make a purchase to keep up with your “points”. For every purchase, you earn points. Then you can redeem those points for free offers!

4. Grab a FREE hat for your kids. 

Krispy Kreme has the iconic paper hats on the tables in the doughnut shop, and they are FREE to take! My kids thought it was fun to have their own doughnut hat.

5. Krispy Kreme does fundraisers!

9. Krispy Kreme is Always Open!

Did you know that most Krispy Kreme locations have a drive-thru that is open 24 hours a day? That’s right! If you’re traveling late at night, doing some Black Friday Shopping, or just have a craving for a doughnut in the middle of the night (no judgement here), you can go through the drive-thru to get a cup of coffee and a doughnut.

10. Look for Coupons. 

Did you know there are Krispy Kreme coupons with coupon inserts? There are! Now, there aren’t Krispy Kreme coupons every week, but there are coupons. You can view our Coupon Insert Previews here to see when there will be Krispy Kreme coupons again.

11. Use Mobile Coupons. 

Mobile apps like Find & Save and Ibotta often have rebates you can use on top of coupons and using the Krispy Kreme app. Always check mobile saving apps to earn some cash back on your coffee and doughnut.

I’m so glad that not only are Krispy Kreme doughnuts delicious, they are also affordable with these ways to save money at Krispy Kreme. Are you a fan of Krispy Kreme? What is your favorite doughnut?
