I may be on a health kick these days, but nothing can get in the way of my love affair with donuts (especially the ones with rainbow sprinkles).

Every time I drive by a Krispy Kreme and see a “HOT NOW” sign lit up, all of my self-control goes out the window. That the store is within walking distance of my apartment doesn’t help.

If you’re like me and have a soft spot for warm, glazed donuts, you’re in luck: I found a way to get a coupon for one free Krispy Kreme donut.

How to Get a Free Krispy Kreme Donut

Getting the free donut is easy — all you have to do is visit Great Eats, which aggregates restaurant email clubs and offers.

Just enter your ZIP code on the Great Eats homepage and select the “Free Doughnut of Your Choice” offer — if the offer doesn’t show up, then stores in your area are not participating. After that, enter your name, email, birthday and preferred Krispy Kreme store, then click “Join Now.”

A few minutes later, you’ll receive an email from Krispy Kreme with a coupon for one free donut of your choice. The coupon is good for 14 days, giving you plenty of time to redeem it!

And, if you don’t want to be a part of Krispy Kreme’s email club, just unsubscribe right after you receive the email — it’s as easy as that.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll be heading out later today to grab mine — just don’t tell my friends at the gym!
