Krispy Kreme Celebrates ‘FREEdom’ with Freebies for Rewards Members in July
 
Krispy Kreme® is offering Rewards members a month-long celebration of ‘FREEdom’ during July, with special freebies. Earlier this year, Krispy Kreme launched its all-new Rewards program, appealing to millions of new members and making it easier for them to earn more points to redeem for free beverages and doughnuts. 
 
Members can enjoy a free doughnut on Tuesdays and any size iced coffee on Fridays during July. The free perks are available with any purchase at participating Krispy Kreme locations. Rewards members can choose a doughnut from Krispy Kreme’s new limited-time Star Spangled Sweetness Collection, which features patriotic-themed doughnuts that celebrate Independence Day. These include the Freedom Flag Doughnut, the Firework Cookies & Kreme Filled Donut, and the Cotton Candy Sparkler Doughnut.
 
On July 9, Rewards members can also receive a free doughnut from its KIT KAT® Collection, including the KIT KAT® Cookie Dream Doughnut, KIT KAT® Crunch Doughnut, and the KIT KAT® Salted Caramel Brownie Doughnut. The candy-themed doughnuts were introduced in April as part of a limited-time collection but will return for one week.
 
More surprises are in store and are expected to be revealed soon. Free doughnuts for the remaining Tuesdays in July are on the menu and will be unveiled on Krispy Kreme’s website and social media channels. Krispy Kreme is also asking members to share their ‘FREEdom’ experiences on social media channels they frequent. They’re encouraged to use the hashtag #KrispyKreme and tag the doughnut maker at @krispykreme.
