What, Krispy Kreme has announced a sweet incentive to help boost vaccines: free donuts.
On Monday, the donut maker unveiled a new promotion offering a free original glazed donut to “anyone who shows their COVID-19 vaccination registration card” at “participating US locations.” The promotion starts on Monday and runs until December 31. It will allow “one redemption per guest per day,” so theoretically you could get a free donut every day for the rest of the year.
How do you get a free Krispy Kreme donut a day if you are vaccinated?
To qualify, you will need to present your COVID-19 vaccination card. You will need to show that you have received at least one of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or the Johnson & Johnson single shot vaccine.
Use of the “I’m vaccinated” label will not count. The company adds on its website that employees will not document or take pictures of their vaccination card, as it “contains personal information.”
You’ll need to head to a Krispy Kreme or drive-thru store to get the deal, and the company will notice that it’s not making the free donuts available to those who order online or through delivery apps.
You can still get a free Krispy Kreme donut even if you don’t get the vaccine
Those who choose not to get the vaccine can get free donuts too, though the Krispy Kreme offering there is a bit more limited.
“We understand that choosing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is a very personal decision,” the company said on its website. He adds that if you decide not to get the vaccine, you can still get a free original glazed donut and half-brewed coffee on Mondays, “to get your week off to a good start.”
The offer for people who are not vaccinated begins March 29 and runs every Monday through May 24.
